    I just recently purchased this router and I am having problems with my FTP transfers. For some reason when somebody is uploading or downloading a file, it always gets an error. When I pop my WRT54G back in, no more errors while using Serv U 6.4.01

    I surf the web just fine with no disconnects, so what gives? I actually exchanged the WRT54GS for the same exact one just now and I am getting the same errors, so it has something to do with router series(assuming this batch is good). I want to upgrade the firmware to DD WRT, but I wanted to make sure I can get it working right first with the Linksys firmware.

    Any ideas?

    What?

    You think one router was bad and you used another and that one did the same thing so it must be the "router series"?

    Sounds more like PEBKAC to me but you didn't give us nearly enough to figure out what's going on.

    I figured that something in the settings is messing up my FTP transfers. I tried to figure out how to turn off something that was different in the GS series, but I just don't see it. I thought maybe somebody would know what I was talking about.
