i have TP-Link WR-740N v1.1 Router.
before flashig this firmware i had an issue with the default FW (? ) .. first let me explain my setup... i Have a ZTE 831 II adsl modem .. which connects me to net .. it has one lan port . earlier when i was using wired conection i would just connect a wire to this port and pc and all was ok.. adn could use static ip on pc for use with emule..
but later i also bought this TPlink device. i have used it for some time peacefully but recently it started to act weirdly after i gave its WAN port a static ip.. it wont connect with the ZTE Modem.. i wont be able to ping that modem.. hence no net..
my zte modem would have its lan ip as 192.168.1.1 and i gave the wan port of tplink ip of 192.168.1.10 .. it would connect but here in my country we are facing electricity blackout every 3 hours or so.. and the problem is that as the light comes the Wifi Device cannont connect to ZTE modem .. i cant ping modem.. (i am connected to wifi ) ... in order for it to be able to ping zte modem and hence let me use internet i would have to remove the lan cable from either device for 10-15 seconds . then it would work ok.. or another way was/is to restart either of the device.. in this case as i can connect to Wifi device and browse its config page i simply reboot it from web config page..
earlier i was using the latest firmware..
so i thought to give DD-WRT a try... unfortunatly same issue here ..
i need to reboot the wifi device or remove cable for 10-15 seconds for it to work..
my hardare version is V1.1
the firmware is Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (11/21/10) std
any help would be recommended..
my zte modem lan ip is 192.168.1.1 with mask as 255.255.255.0
my wan port of wifi (which is connected to zte modem ) is having ip address of 192.168.1.10 sm 255.255.255.0 assigned staticaly.. gateway is 18.104.22.168
static dns1 is 192.168.1.1
and the lan port of wifi is 192.168.2.1
and i have set port forwading for emule..

I also noted that my router cpu speed is shown as 350 MHz and also the TX / RX for my pc is shown as 54 M .. wharease the router is just a few feet from my pc .. earlier at the same spot with stock fw i would get 150 Mbps ..
y is it ?
have red the rules..
anyhow regarding lates version .. i presumed the search function for roms would return me with latest rom for my router .. but it seems i m wrong as u told me to upgrade .. and another fellow brought up a link to more recent version... so me on how to find latest version...
now i have flashed the version linked above ... still same issue regarding no connectivity between wan and my adsl modem.. can connect to wifi but cant ping adsl modem of any site.. restarting solves..
i m suspecting its adapter to be the issue .. i will buy new power adapter to see if things improve..
also i m still stuck at 65Mbps ... my wifi wont connect at speeds higher then this.. even i have made sttings like mentoned above ..due to which gaming experience is not good..
and also router speed is still shown as 350 .. is it ok? should'nt it be 400mhz?
