WRT54G2//ddwrt - 80% transmission errors

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I'm having trouble with some wireless access points. i installed ddwrt on them (mostly for fun, but their are other reasons) and ive noticed that im having quite a bit of wireless transmission errors (under the wireless status page).

when i ping the servers from from laptops in various places, i see roughly 10% packet loss, when i log into the router, im seeing roughly 80% tx errors.

any ideas as to why? i already tried setting the ack timing to 0.
