Why Linksys WRT54G locks up?
Posted on 2007-03-27
I have a few Linksys WRT54G v6 boxes. Some are running DD-WRT v23 SP2, some are running the original vx software. They both seem to be malfunctioning after running about 2 days. Some sympotoms are as follows:
1. WAN port stops responding to ping request;
2. LAN port stops responding to ping request;
3. unable to release IP address though wireless is connected; wireless client is able to connect if using static IP;
4. I configure DD-WRT to reboot every day, which does not seem to resolve the issue. It looks like only hard reset (power cycle) can reset the box and resolve the issue.
Q#1: Any idea why this happens?
Q#2: Any one out there has the similar problem?
Q#3: Is it normal to reset the box every 1-2 days to make it work?
Q#4: Any way to improve the availability?
Thanks a lot.
