My setup is a Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 in AP router mode connected to a qwest dsl modem. (2) Trendnet TEW-429UB usb wireless adapters, one in a desktop, one in an old laptop
With the v24 beta generic dd-wrt installed I'm getting extremely high and incrementing wireless received (RX) errors. Here is a sample display after20min or so of uptime: Wireless Packet Info Received (RX) 3% 829 OK, 28939 errors Transmitted (TX) 100% 3049 OK, 11 errors
By disabling the two client cards one by one, I see that all the errors are associated with the laptop, and these Received errors increment by exactly31 with every Transmit packet. The client drivers are identical and swapping the cards between the pc and laptop has no effect. The laptop is close to the AP and the signal quality is 100%. The laptop is an old Presario 900 with a usb1.1 port, winxp home, fully patched.
The other clue is that with v23 (SP2) dd-wrt, the errors were so bad the laptop would connect for maybe one minute out of 20 minutes. With v24 beta, both clients connect immediately and stay connected (WPA2-PSK/AES in use, G-only radio setting).
So, is there an adjustment in dd-wrt that I should be looking at, something maybe that changed between v23 and v24? Or some issue with the laptop and it's old usb1.1 ? Any comments/help appreciated very much!
