dns linksys problems and XP

i have a wrt54g router and about 20 percent of the time i cannot find certains sites... It wont find google via the google search bar... It fails to find Tek-tips.com - when i run ipconfig / flushdns it seems to help but this happens way to many times... I have an XP box and a linux box... there are no problems on the xp box

RE: dns linksys problems and XP

If it is an ADSL connection, set the linksys to an MTU of 1492, and the clients to the same value using DrTCP:  http://www.dslreports.com/drtcp

If AOL broadband, set the MTU as above to 1430.

RE: dns linksys problems and XP
