Way back when, I have a netgear router. It ended having a limit on its
NAT translation table, and when I had too many connections going at same
time (or not yet timed out), I would lose connection. There was an
unofficial patch to the firmware (litterally a patch in code that
defined table size) to increase that table to 1000- as I recall.

Does the Linksys have a means to display the NAT translation table and
see if maybe connections are lost when that table is full and lots of
connections have not yet timed out ?
