I just purchased a Linksys WRT54G Router. I have a laptop with Windows XP which is working fine with it. The problem I'm having is with our Desktop, which is hard-wired into the router. The OS for the desktop is ME. The desktop will access the internet for 10-15 minutes, and then locks up. When I control + alt + del it tells me Explorer is not responding. Machine freezes up and is not able to do anything. Must disconnect router from desktop and re-boot. After re-booting I can re-connect router to desktop and go online no problems for another 10-15 minutes then same problem happens.
Linksys tech support told me to lower MTU's (which were originally 1500) by 8 digits until problem goes away. Does this sound like the right thing to do?
Has anyone else heard of this problem? Solution?
