    Is it possible to use a VPN capability firmware in BEFSR11? Is there any free implementation, like OpenWRT? What will happen if I would try to upload another VPN capability firmware, for example BEFSX41's fw in my BEFSR11?

    Thank you very much!

    Unfortunately 3rd party software only has a chance at being developed if the source code to the products firmware has been released. In the case of the BEF series of routers, this hasn't happend, and most likely won't.

    Sorry to dissapoint.

    well i guess that also answers my question about the existence of 3rd party firmware for a BEFS41 router, too. is there any possibility of convincing linksys to release the source code or are just stuck out of luck?

    this also begs the question, how or why did linksys release the source for the WRT series routers, and can the same means of convincing be used to get them to release the source for these, too?
