I have an E3000 with Firmware Version: 1.0.04.When i add certain devices to the DHCP reservation table, for example my Ipod Touch's then I am unable to connect to the Internet. I can connect to the wireless network without any problems, just no internet. If i remove the device from the DHCP reservation table then they work flawlessly. I have had this problem with all firmware versions. I have also sometimes experience this problem with my laptop that uses the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies and also a Kodak photo frame that retreives news and weather information from the internet. If i remove the device from the DHCP reservation table and then add them again they work for a short period of time and suddenly stop, maybe when the device is powered off or goes into standby, that i am not sure of. Is anyone else experiencing similar issues? an/or maybe a solution!

How you are using the DHCP reservation? Using the MAC address or using the IP address? You face that problem only when you enter your Ipod under DHCP Reservation?

I think you need to upgrade the firmware of your Router. Download the firmware from the linksys router and then reset your router and re-configure all the settings on it from scratch.

following up with this issue i am now having problems connecting without DHCP reservation. My ipod's will randomly loose the connection. if i go into the router and change the channel on the 2.4GHZ frequency they will work again for a while, switching between 8 and 11 which both get a good range, not as good as my wrt54g, i am very dissapointed with the range of the E3000. Sometimes i have to go in to the DHCP client table from the local network tab and delete the client for them to work again or physically powering off the router. A combination of all three methods eventually get my Ipods back on the wirless network. I am not having any interference issues with any other wireless device on 2.4GHZ and my Ipods work fine on other wirless networks. is no one else experiencing this?

Have you found a solution to the disappointing range with the E3000?
I upgraded from my WRT54G which covered my entire house but the E3000 can barely reach half my house. Everybody has to come close to the office to get a decent connection. I would expect the E3000 to be at least as good as the WRT54G since they advertise excellent range.
