At this point, it's more likely that there's something defective with the router. Flashing new firmware is a pretty idiot proof process. Any chance of exchange with wherever you bought it?

Free bump?

Your router is most likely defective. I just bought the same model a few weeks back, flashed with DD-WRT, and I've had great performance since. No drops or anything. (This should probably be in PM, oops)

Both me and Lpfan4ever have the same model, he is running DDWRT and i am running Tomato (I tried DD-WRT as well and it works fine)

you sure it's the router that's the issue? I have seen bad modems that drop as well.. tomato has been rock solid for me for at least 4-5 years.. both on DSL and on cable

the wireless is pretty good on it as well..

what exactly happens, more details = easier to help you

even if i offer to send you my working router, there is no guarantee it will work there..
