Linksys WRT54G global maximum connection?


Recommended Posts


I was just wondering what is the recommended value of global mazimum connections for Linksys WRT54G?

So far it hasn't cause any problems, because I keep it at 100

if I use the default utorrent connection profile setting(2mb/s), which set the global max to 700.

after awhile, it will start to flood the connection, and web browsing becomes sluggish or no connection.

any recommendation would be awesome.

Use the appropriate connection settings as recommended by the Speed Guide. That means you should be following the instructions carefully, not leaving it at default.

The WRT54G has a crappy firmware by default. Depending on what version of the router you are using, it may be rectifiable with a 3rd party firmware. Otherwise, you might want to upgrade the firmware from Linksys.

The v6 is a tad harder to flash, and since Tomato isn't compatible use DD-WRT micro (the standard build seems crap anyway). I recommend substituting v24 with v23 SP2 in the special flashing procedure:


Also, be aware that there is a slight risk with the procedure. If followed correctly, you shouldn't have a problem, but one mistake can leave you with a piece of crap. You should read the recovery instructions as well. Once installed, reduce the protocol timeouts in the administration tab:

TCP: 180

UDP: 120

And if your speed guide settings allows for more connections then the default limit in the router, increase the limit in the router as well. DON'T UPGRADE OVER A WIRELESS CONNECTION.
