So this has started to become a norm in the past week. I have several devices connected to my router and most of them do so wirelessly, but a couple uses the ethernet port. About every hour my wireless devices will no longer be able to connect to the internet while the devices connected through the ethernet ports are still able to access internet. The signal from my router is still being broadcast and all the devices say that they have internet access, but it doesn't. I've tried to ping google.com, and that resulted in not being able to find host. Pinging the IP works but the request would time out. I then tried to ping my router's IP address and the request was also timed out. The only way i have been able to get back online wirelessly is by restarting the router.
I have a Linksys WRT54G with the latest firmware, v8.00.8. DHCP is enabled. wireless channel is currently on channel 11, although i tried switching to a couple with no success. these are my other settings http://i.imgur.com/FUcNU.png Note that i changed a few things from it's defaults because some sources from google search suggested, but no luck there either.
I think this is solely a router problem and i wonder if anyone knows what is going on/ knows how to fix it
