I am currently experiencing a connection issue that occurs exactly every 10 minutes (give or take a few seconds).
I have a Lynksys WRT150N with DD-WRT v24-sp2 std. I have verified this is not an ISP issues as it occurs on the internal LAN and when taking the personal router out of the mix everything works fine.
This issue is a relatively minor connection problem as in almost all applications I use you cannot notice the problem. I only discovered this problem when I was taking an online SANS course and the class streaming application would drop connection every 10 minutes exactly.
I decided to run a ping test where I basically just pinged Google continuously. (ping /t www.google.com). I found that every 10 minutes I would get either a "Request timed out." or a "Reply from 192.168.1.1: Destination net unreachable." error (no noticeable pattern as to which one would occur over the other). This would only happen for one ICMP packet at the 10 minute mark and then it would resume as normal.
I have tried updating the firmware (upgraded to the v24-sp2, had an older version before that). I made sure to do the hard reset 30/30/30 before and after the upgrade. I have tried scouring for answers everywhere I could think of. The closest thing I found was this post:
Of course that only relates in that the RST flag they are getting is happening every 10 minutes (though I am curious as to whether their issue is in fact a TCP issue or the same problem I am having affecting more than just the TCP layer; they too have a WRT router).
At this point I am considering just getting a new router but I find it hard to believe this is a hardware issue which causes a connection drop at such a regular interval.
Any help you can provided is much appreciated. Apologies in advanced for any misconceptions or lack of information on my part.
