My router seems to randomly slow down at different intervals throughout the day. Is there any way to tweak it to improve performance?

It depends on what is causing it. The speed you get from your isp varies depending partly on how much the other customers are using their internet, so at peak times your speed will almost certainly slow down. Most isp's also traffic manage and shape, which means they'll restrict your bandwidth, once you've reached their limit, and sometimes what you may use that bandwidth on. ie torrents

Your wireless channel may have a lot of interference, if so changing the channel may do the trick, and whilst you're there make sure it's set to use 802.11g and not just 802.11b, 802.11 is just the name for the wireless protocol. Also make sure your security is as tight as possible to make sure that no one is using your connection without your knowledge. WPA/WPA2 is the better encryption, don't use WEP unless you have to, and use a good network key ie. one thats hard to figure out, a good sign is that it's hard to remember, just don't forget it.

If you're trying to use torrents and you think your isp may be restricting you then try enabling encryption in your torrent software settings. Also the speed of your torrents will vary wildly by their very nature.

Traffic management you can't do much about other than observe the limits or change isp's, but if you do then check out their traffic management and fair use policy first, find one that suits you.

It could also be a problem with the network, for instance you could be suffering from an intermittent low SNR (signal to noise ratio), That would cause dropped packets which would then have to be resent therefore taking longer to download the data. Or it could be an overloaded UBR (universal broadband router) which is the device they use to distribute their service, it's like a huge version of the routers we use. You would need to get your isp to fix those kinds of problems.

So you're almost certainly going to need to phone your isp's tech support dept and get them to go through some diagnostics with you to isolate the cause of the problem. Unless changing your routers settings helps.

My linksys router wrt54gp2 is having to be continually "reset". Any suggestions?

It sounds to me like your old router is starting to fail. If you have a computer running Peer-to-Peer sharing software like Limeware, or Bit-Torrents, they may cause it to freeze. If nothing like that is running, try another router to see if the new one fixes the issue.

Help with Static IP address configuration

no need to set static IP addresses for the PC, i have been using UTorrent client with a laptop and used the laptop on different network, just set your torrent port to be dynamic, or let the torrent client find an open port everytime you use it (it is always under network settings / preferences).

if you have other questions just let me know, i'd be more willing to help out.

Help with my router

You did not have this problem before because port forwarding was set on the previous router settings, or you were using a modem ( no firewall) .
Here are instruction for port forwarding

One last thing, if your computer is powerful enough (1gb memory would be good), use Azureus, is much better.
