    I would like to get ahold of the older firmware. Possibly 1.04.00 because I'm having nothing but problems with connections problems with this stupid router. I hate it. I wish my v1 never got hit by lightning and I wouldnt have this problem.

    Ironically the older routers are more stable. I fully agree with you. I just got the same BEFSR41 router that you have and put the BEFSR11 on order that I used for the past 5 years without ever having any problem. Since I got the BEFSR11 last night, I am a happy camper again.
    I recommend you do the same thing and put a Linksys 8 or 16-port switch behind it. The neat thing about the BEFSR11 is that it only has one port, so you can configure everything in a very stable fashion and then use the switch for some intelligent internal networking. If you got newer computers, you might even go with the EG005W 5-port Gigabit switch and run a Gigabit network on the inside. That's what I am doing now.

    Have you tried ftp.linksys.com yet to find an older firmware for you BEFSR41? If not, try that and let me know. I got various different versions downloaded and may be able to help if your first choice is to try an older firmware.
