Desktop with Windows XP, external wifi adapter N - Keeps disconnecting internet every second when second user sign in (for both the users). Laptop with Windows 7, internal wifi adapter n - this is not an issue. Did not see this problem with Asus stock firmware. Could someone please help me to resolve this issue?

Do you have a limit set on the amount of wireless connections allowed?
It's possible that the wireless channel Tomato is using could be tripping up the adapter. Change from auto to 1, 6, or 11.
However — sounds like an adapter issue to me. Your adapter is having trouble coping with how Tomato is managing the wireless. Try updating the adapter driver on XP, using a different adapter altogether, or just upgrading that system to 7.
I had Maximum Clients - 128 (default value).
I tried different channels with no luck. For some reasons, my old adapter (too old, motorola) is not working with this router. No updates are available for this (D-Link DWA-125) adapter.
Hi. I'm having close to the same issue while trying to stay connected via my laptop. I am running Vista Home Premium 32-bit SP 2 with an Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN with the newest drivers. I'm not getting dropped every second, but randomly and quite frequently. I have even gone as far as replacing my card with a new one of the same make/model with no luck. The limit set on the amount of connections is 128 and the channel is set to 3 - 2.422 GHz.
I have been running multiping around the clock with the modem, router, Google's DNS, my ISP's DNS server, several internet locations, and PC loopback set up for monitoring. When I get disconnected, I lose all connectivity except for the loopback interface. The only way to recover connectivity is to disable the wifi adapter and/or reset the router.
I'm not sure if it is the actual router hardware that is having the problem or if it is the tomato firmware. Any thoughts or suggestions would be very appreciated!
