Wrt150n dd-wrt firmware slow loading pages

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} I am having a problem that I was hoping someone can help me. I've searched the boards but have not been able to fix the problem.

I have a Linksys WRT150N router and using dd-wrt firmware. I am having intermittent problems with my pc connected to the router via ethernet cable. Sometimes the internet connection flies, sometimes it drags and takes a while. The same problem occurs with Microsoft outlook in opening email. Other programsd not accessing the internet are fine.

I am running Windows XP and am using Avast antivirus and Zonealarm firewall.

When disconnect from the router (coming straight from the Optimum cable modem), everything flies.

Thanks.

First off thanks for using fixya.com

Second, I too am a dd-wrt user and found a similar problem when using dd-wrt with my IPCOP. You may want to go into the "Security" section of your dd-wrt and disable any fire walling or access-restrictions. Since you are already running zonealarm. Or remove zonealarm if you plan to use dd-wrt as your firewall.

Running multiple firewalls will slow down your network/Internet traffic.

Hope this helps you out.

DD WRT is a firmware upgrade sight you can find wonderful firmware upgrades that make your router come to life and Evan worth more than you payed for your original router, check the router database and see if your router is listed and capable for an upgrade to dd wrt, i did it with my dir615 and it gave me a whole host of additional optins for configurations , it was a long search for "dd wrt" but well worth it.

Linksys WRT160N Connection Issues.


Sadly, this router has horrible reviews and is known for this problem:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductReview.aspx?Item=N82E16833124277

Can you return it for another model?
Can you getLinksys to replace it?

the best one is the LINKSYS WRT54GL, but if you are stuck with the one you have...

If you have tried all these things and you are very brave (or don't care if you need to buy another router) why not try flashing it with an after market O/S?

Connection Drops . wrt150n disconnecting


This is a firmware issue with the newer Linksys routers, and most people are having the same issue. Don't expect a stable firmware release from the manufacturer any time soon.

Instead, if you want to fix the problem properly, head on over to www.dd-wrt.com and install their firmware. I did this in a last ditch effort before throwing out my router, and now the router hasn't acted up for more than 10 days.

Be sure to follow the instructions when flashing firmware, several of the steps are critical to not "bricking" your router. As usual, make sure you are on a WIRED connection, as flashing from a wireless connection is guaranteed to kill your router. When flashing dd-wrt's firmware, you must also first flash a "mini" or "micro" version before flashing the full version.

This is the linux version of the 54G router. It is assumed anyone using this router is loading their own custom firmware such as dd-wrt for which all the instructions are on the dd-wrt website.
