I've noticed that whenever I turn on torrents or newsgroups, my wireless transmit rate drops from 54mbps to 11mbps. The download would start off hovering around the 1.2MB/s and after 10-20 seconds would drop down to 370-380kb/s max The connection goes like this: downstairs computer -> WRT54GL -><- Wireless Bridge -> <- WRT54G -> Shaw Modem Both routers are flashed with DD-WRT v24 firmware. I've included some screenshots and hopefully there is something there that can be changed to fix this problem. Basic settings: Advanced Settings: Wireless Status: I've tried changing the fixed transmit rate to 54mbps but whenever I do that my wireless would constantly cut out. I'd change channels and within a couple of minutes the connection would stop working and changed to limited connection. It would do that regardless of which channel I switch it to. I don't think it's the client bridge router (WRT54GL) because I got it a couple of days ago. The internet for my iphone wouldn't work either whenever I have it set to a fixed tx rate of 54mbps.
