    I just had my main DSL modem replaced by the ISP because the old one was having problems, they replaced it with a new model(with wifi) and I connected it to my Wi-fi Router(ASUS brand, that uses a dd-wrt firmware)

    Everything works fine, I can browse and game as usual, except when I upload things, on facebook, youtube, etc, there's a problem.

    I get disconnected from everything else. Steam goes offline, I can't browse any website, My games get disconnected, raidcall gets disconnected, it looked like I had no internet. the only thing that was working was the upload itself, I have to wait until the upload is finished until I can start using the internet again. I cancel the upload and everything goes back to normal, so I'm 100% sure it's the uploading that's causing it. and It's not just me, everyone in our network 'loses connection'

    I need help

    things I did.
    Reset my router
    Changed DNS
    Changed IP
    Restarted PC
    I did a speedtest and nothing unusual

    EDIT: Turned off everything for 5 minutes and tested it again, it seems ok, for now

    dd-wrt firmware is a third party firmware correct? If so, possibly returning router to factory defaults i.e original bios etc. Just a thought, this one seems odd, also Did u mean they replaced Your Modem? Cuz you mentioned two routers, unless your boosting,or the like with double routers. I personally would break the chain of devices down to the simplest configuration, and work from there.

    It just seems odd, that You dont get disconnected during gaming, which is doing some uploading during MP games...

    Sorry, yeah, I meant they replaced my old DSL modem with a new model, with wifi built in, so it's also a router, but they help me set it up(bridged mode) so I could still use my main router

    I have been using dd-wrt for years on that router, so no problems on that firmware

    I will try plugging in the PC to the DSL modem directly and see what happens

    Same thing, I suspect. I believe it is due to the nature of DSL (upload has priority).

    If your modem has wifi and you have it connected to another router with wifi then you are most likely double NAT and that could cause problems. Figure out if you can turn off the router portion of the ISPs modem and give the public IP to the WAN of the Asus router.
