Wireless or Ethernet?

BT = BitTorrent I assume?

Do you have an Antivirus program or software firewall running like McAfee, Norton, ZoneAlarm, etc..?

OS?

Also, have you tried reducing the sheer number of connections BT will accept simultaneously?

What's your carrier's policy re: BT? They could be dropping you.

Odd, I had the same issue last night. Worked fine again after a router reset.

Most routers crap out if you have around 100 connections or more when torrenting. Really cheap routers will probably handle even less.

Some routers also can get flooded and resetting them clears it up. I have to do it every once in a while when torrenting.

Update the firmware if you haven't already. I've had several routers regularly crap out on me because of flaws in how the data was handled, and updates have always fixed the issue.

I do have latest firmware, the problem is I have a WRT54G (version 8 ) and linksys firmware for these routers generally suck.

When I first got it, I researched putting Tomato or ddwrt on it but found that linksys nerfed the flash memory on all 54G models after version 4 or something so you can't put it on (or put a decent version of it on that would make risking bricking your router worth it).
