BEFSR41 Fw 2.00.1 ?

    I have a BEFSR41 v 4.2 router with firmware 2.00.1 installed on it. Linksys claims they did not make this firmware and that linksysinfo created this firmware. Linksys has 1.04.9 listed as the newest firmware for this router. I have not been able to find that firmware version on this site. I have a feeling linksys did in fact create 2.00.1 and rolled the number back for one reason or another. Does anyone have any info on version 2.00.1 as far as who created it or what happened to it? Also, does anyone know how i could get a hold of this firmware?

    thanks

    Haha - the BEFSR41 is not open source, the only firmware comes from Linksys itself, sometimes this site gets copies of pre-release beta firmware from Linksys!

    It is pretty clear that the 4.2 version is new and very different needing a new version number, the one currently listed on the UK Linksys site is:-

    Code:
    Linksys- A division of Cisco Systems, Inc. 
    
    Firmware Date    : August 31, 2006
    Current Firmware : Version 2.00.00
    Product PartNo   : BEFSR41 ver. 4.2 only
    
    Ver #.		Date		Description
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2.00.00		Aug 31,2006	Initial release
    It is not unusual for new versions to hit the street before they are posted on the web site, and sadly not unusual for customer service not to know anything!
