WRT54GL problem

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all

My WRT54GL (Tomato firmware 1.27) is acting up strange.

Sometimes it shows everything is ok an connected but there is no internet conenction...

It needs to be rebooted and then everything works.

I noticed it happened more when I am downloading a bunch of torrents...

My internet connection is 12Mbs, maybe its not built for that kind of speed?

Does anyone have any idea? is it time to get a new one?

I have the same issue with same router except I'm using DD-WRT and it happens when I download a lot of torrents with high number of peers.
Adjusting following settings have helped me a little:
  • Maximum Ports to 4096
  • TCP Timeout to 512
  • UDP Timeout to 300
Don't know if tomato has the same settings, but you can google up something like: "wrt54gl tomato torrents"

Are you running wirelessly or wired? Have you checked to see if tomato has a newer version? If you do alot of torrents/ downloading then maybe it's time for a upgrade but in the meantime trying different drivers and newer firmware night be the ticket. However it sounds like your driver's are the cause of this infliction.

I am using the latest version (there is a 1.28 version but its still beta)

I read somewhere that the WRT54GL cannot handle 12Mbs internet connection because its cpu gets to 100% at 6Mbs download rate.
I personally get full bandwith using torrents but then experience problems, so maybe its true...

What would you reommend upgrading to? I dont care about wireless capabilities

I have the same router, don't use tomato though, heard of it, not sure about the advantages it brings. Anyway I have a 10Mb internet connection and get full bandwidth when downloading, never seen this 6Mb limitation before so perhaps its something else.

Sorry can't help ya anymore, but thought I'd throw that in there.
