AG241 Firmware

    The AG241 has now been around for a few months in the UK. They work fine as a simple adsl router but issues like the time-of-day not being picked up and (more seriously for me) the vpn connectivity being very flaky, mean that its use as a reliable vpn endpoint is impossible.
    I see in the Linksys ftp folders that there is an Australian beta version (V1.00.13) - nine subversions on from ours in the UK. So I guess there are a lot of bug fixes.
    Will the Australian version work in the UK and has anyone tried it?
    Does anyone have any idea when a new version will be available for UK users?

    So there is obviously a UK beta around - I guess with the same bug fixes as the Australian version. Whatever they are.
    I don't know how you would get the file to me. I don't want to put my email address on here, I get enough spam already. Being a newbie on this forum I don't know if there are ways of transferring files.
    Where did you get the file from? Could I get it from the same place? What country are you in?

    And what does "fix a bug port stealth" mean?

    I just experimented with uploading a file. You can upload a file either as an attachment to one of these messages or to my "Private mail" (the PM button). Unfortunately the file size seems to be limited to 128K. It says that a document file has a 128M limit but I tried uploading a pdf to test it and it failed.

    Anybody out there got any ideas/suggestions. I suppose I could send my email address to Vincenzov72's private mail but I don't know how private it really is!

    So far so good

    Well, I put it on my router and it certainly seems to be an improvement. The time-of-day is now set correctly making the logs much easier to interpret. I think it might be starting up a little faster too but I haven't timed it. And the VPN disconnect problem was intermittent so the jury is still out on that one.

    As a general related question.... Does anyone know Linksys's policy on beta firmware? Do they have official testers? Do they ever publish any notes on what has been fixed/updated from release to release?

    And thanks Vincenzov72 again for the file. Where did you get it from?

    the firmware by linksys italy

    I have now run the new firmware for a couple of weeks with the following observations:

    One of the issues - the time not being set from the dsl connection is partially fixed. As noted in another thread on this forum, it picks up gmt but doesn't adjust for bst. Better than nothing.
    The VPN issue is no better, no worse. It consistently stops routing from the endpoint to the central network. The vpn shows as connected but no data flows. "Waking up" the VPN by sending data from the central network to the endpoint will make it work again for a time. Disconnecting the VPN and letting it re-establish will also fix it. But after a time (an hour or so) it will stop again.
    There are some extra SNMP options in the webpages which I have not experimented with.

    Aside from that, without any release notes it is impossible to know what has changed or what to test.

    I would really like to set up a better relationship with Linksys. I suspect I am not alone!!
