Hello!

 

For the past several months, I noticed my old Linksys WRT54GL v1.1 router (using the latest stock firmware) likes to reboot. I think I finally figured out its pattern. I think my house mate's Apple iPhone 4S (iOS 5 [will 6 fix it?]) is making my router reboot. I know he uses the house's wireless Internet to avoid his Verizon's capped, slower 3G Internet connection. It seems like when he goes out and after a few minutes later, my router sometimes will reboot.

 

That makes no sense. Weird! I never see this problem if he is out of town for days/weeks. I don't know how that is related. Is there something funky with this router and iPhone 4S' wifi? Is it a known issue? Electronics are so weird!

 

Thank you in advance.
