    Orderd it because my brother said I could throttle the speed to each IP or port with a hacked firmware. Once I opend the box and saw the version number I cant seem to find firmware Anywhere that works on 5.0.. am I stuck with linksys only firmware? its killing my torrenting!!!

    hey

    hai the v5 in the base of the device is the hardware version connect the rotuer to the computer and open the routers interface page and in the right hand side top corner check the firmware version number if it is 1.00.1 please download the latest version which is 1.00.4 from linksys.com/download then start using the device with the old firmware 1.00.1 u will face yen number of issues.

    I orderd it at ncix.com .. their return policy doesent let me return it unless its not working properly, and its working perfectly according to linksys.... plus its 3000miles away so I cant exactly walk in and check the other routers.. are there any other alternatives? ive forwarded the ports that my bittorrent client uses, ive set my ethernet port to high priority and the others to low.. the basic options that come with this firmware are realy lame...

    sorry

    i think nothing can be done beyond this b,cos v5 wont even support 3rd party firmwares also lets see and wait for the next firmware release from linksys.

    this router is Soooo irritating.. im going to just turn it off and use my old d-link :(

    it crashes every once in a while.. I cant access the GUI OR anything that requires a DNS lookup.

    Argh, I upgraded to 1.0.0.4 too and the download speed STILL sucks. I changed the MTU or whatever too, still sucks. Grrrrrr!
