I have a linksys wrt54gs router i have been playing games with this router for 2 or 3 months now, all of the sudden i connect fine to a server but when im actually in the game i get connection problem flashing on Call of Duty, and i tried battlefield vietnam, after the game loads and once im in the game my cable modem cycles through its lights gain. but when i leave the game the cycle speeds up and all of them turn back on and i can surf the net like normal.

i started trouble shooting it myself, i uninstalled COD and installed it again and it didnt work, i logged onto the router and renewed my DHCP, it started to work. i go into a server started playing for a bit and punkbuster says i have invalid characters, (everyone on the server has different colors and symbols/letters/number etc. in their names) so i update PB and now its back to square one again with it not working when i connect to a server.

ive narrowed it down to the router or punkbuster. any ideas? thanks for the help.

its punkpuster:

This is the executable for Punkbusters Client side AUTO UPDATING using WINDOWS Operating Systems:

Be sure to save the pbweb.exe into the home "pb" folder (C:\Program Files\Call of Duty\pb) on your hard drive and then launch PBWEB.exe. If PBWEB is not launched from inside the home "pb" directory/folder, then it will not work.

This is the easiest way to AUTO update Punkbusters from the player/client side. The game server does NOT update ALL of your game files. This way will do that for you!

I would recommend doing this even if your not having problems or if your having 999 problems along with No Packet Flow errors & PB Initialization Failures.

This can take a little while to run........this is typical!

this should solve your issue. also if you never have updated your firmware then I recomend it. I got that same router about 2 months ago and it was still at v1 and they are up to something like v3 now.
