Some of the Netgear routers allow you to telnet into the router and change
a config setting for the timeouts for specific protocols. But I've never
heard the linksys allowing this.
You might be lucky and your linksys might be one of the ones that can
run an alternative firmware. If so, flash it to one of the open source
firmwares and it should fix the problem.
