Router Port Forward

Specs: none, none
Hi to all.

I have Linksys Router with port forward activated to a static IP computer.
Also Upnp is activated.
Its been working fine for years, but recently on the computer I get the info that ports are not properly forward.
I go into the router and router states that ports are forwarded.
I reboot the computer and the same happens.
I physically unplug the router from its power source and force the router to reboot and ports are working again for about 1 weak. And then it happens again.

What could it be?
Old router? (Close to six or seven years)

Router: Linksys WRT54GL 1.1

Thanks.

Well if it works after a week and then fails, it sounds as if there may be some sort of memory leak or something - NAT is running out of space & reboot frees it. Try upgrading the firmware.

You might also put DDWRT on the router instead, it's a good linux kernel for the wrt series & works much better than the linksys firmware, imho.

Its currently running Hyper+Thibor firmware.
I've been thinking about the DDWRT for a couple of days, now.

I think i'm gonna give it a try.

Thanks.
