I actually figured out what the issue was. I am using 4 wire ethernet cables (phone line with ethernet connectors on the end) because I am only running 10/100 LAN. This setup worked great with my WRT54G's, but it is flakey with the WHR-G300N. Don't know if it is the hardware or the current build of DD-WRT (12966). I am still running my 4 wire ethrenet cable, but I send it through a switch then connect that switch to my WHR-G300N with a regular 8 wire ethrenet cable. Here is a link to another thread that describes the whole thing :)
My problem is MAC address crazyness. I will get a weird abcd.efgh...... type of MAC addresses off the usual AB.CD.EF.GH....
It conflicted my server and I had to revert to 12533.
I'm hoping that the 12966 resolved these issues.

Build 12874 and build 12966 were both working fine on my 2 - WHR-G300N's
I would try this.
1) Reset router - just hold reset button in for about 20+ seconds.
All the lights should flash off, then start coming back on again.
Leave the router alone for about 2 minutes.
2) Log in to gui, set a user/password, flash 12966 and choose
the 'reset to defaults' option as well, and flash the firmware.
Leave it alone for a couple minutes.
3) Log in to GUI and setup your router as before.
If you need to reset to defaults again, just hold reset button in for
about 20+ seconds and then wait a couple of minutes again. _________________ Soylent Green Is People !
