Vonage Stop, now I'm blushing. :) spblat - Yes, you can get the WRTP54G running

Stop, now I'm blushing. :)

spblat -

Yes, you can get the WRTP54G running for longer periods with BitTorrent. In fact, my WRTP54G once lasted 48 hours before requiring a reboot, by limiting it to 10 simultaneous connections and 2 simultaneous outbound connection attempts. If you lower yours to, say, 5 simultaneous connections and 1 outbound connection attempt, you might even make a full 4 days... Of course at those speeds you'd never download anything...

Here's the problem:

Linksys routers use a function called a "NAT Table" to keep track of who wants to talk to who. In the WRTP54G, that "NAT Table" has the Linksys default of 2,048 entries. This is more than enough for normal, or even BitTorent, usage. However...

Connections that are active but have not had data across them for a while need to be recycled eventually. After all, not every application closes their data connections cleanly, and BitTorrent is one of the worst offenders in that regard. Linksys chose 5 days as their timeout, which is probably sufficient for web surfing, but doesn't come close to cutting it in the BitTorrent world.

So, your BitTorrent usage fills up the NAT table, there are no entries that can be recycled, and the NAT table is now full. When a computer tries to make a new connection, the router refuses, since there is no way of keeping track of that connection. All old connections work fine, but no new ones are allowed.

The solution is to lower that timeout period. This is a change to a single variable in the Linux kernel in the router. Unfortunately, you do not have that level of access to your router, so you can't change that number.

So, your only available option is... a new router.


I suggest the Linksys WRT54GL, which (when paired with aftermarket firmware and configured properly) works really, really well for both Vonage and BitTorrent.

(Steve48 - was that enough of an earful or should I blather on for a while? LOL)

15 seconds is much too short, in my opinion. That means that connections are idling

Thanks all. Say I get my hands on a more robust router which lacks VOIP and WiFi capabilities.
