The connection seems to be fixed temporarily if I change the wireless channel or power cycle the router.

This is my router model information according to DD-WRT:

  • Model: Linksys WRT54G2 / GS2
  • Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (10/10/09) micro

I use WPA2-Personal security with TKIP+AES.

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Not really an answer, but I recently bought a new wireless router and based on researching hundreds of reviews and web sites, it seems that most consumer-grade wireless routers leave a lot to be desired. Heat is an issue, and with it, reliability issues. I have to reboot my wireless router every 48 hours or so or performance suffers, even for the wired computers. – Snowman Nov 12 '11 at 5:23

There are many possible causes:

  • Bad router
  • Bad wireless card in PC
  • Distance between PC and router
  • Interference

I'd try getting the two devices close together and see if that makes a difference.

What do you mean by interference? – poymode Nov 12 '11 at 14:38
Phones, microwave, walls, just about everything... Do you have the problem if the devices are close physically? – dbasnett Nov 12 '11 at 16:02
I got it already, it was my PS3 with its media server searching enabled. Seems like it causes DoS to the wireless connection. I turned it off and all seemed well. Thanks! – poymode Nov 14 '11 at 5:34
