client bridge loses connection

I'm running a WRT54g with DD-WRT v24 as a client bridge. I've set it up according to the wiki on the dd-wrt site. It works great when I first set it up, but then at some point it drops the connection and it is a huge hassle to get it working again.

on the status screen, it tends to say that it is still connected, but I have no connectivity. If I look at the access point it is connected to, it still lists the router as connected (with about a 30% signal strength) even when the client bridge claims that it is not connected. I've tried to do a search on available access points, and click "Join"... it will say that it has been successful, but then doesn't work.


Any suggestions?

Client bridge works well for

Client bridge works well for me using Fon2100/dd-wrt
The settings are tricky, try doing a 30.30.30 reset on the wrt54g then set it up again.
Be sure to follow the instuctions carefully as regards the firewall....

I had the same problem with

I had the same problem with the stock firmware. Turns out my problem was that I wasn't running both routers on the same channel. Make sure your channel isn't set to "auto" and that both have the same value.
