    I'm looking for new 8 port router with QoS but from what I can read/see looks like the BEFSR81 is EOL product...
    Last firmware update in 2004 ?!
    Is the router really so bad and unreliable ?

    Thanks for reply !
    Since I upload lots of data I need reliable QoS for my VOIP.
    I also see many complaints about short longevity of the router :(
    What hardware is the best ? v1 2 3 ...is there v4 ?

    my personal experience is to stay away from the V3... i have been running the beta code and still have QOS problems.... such as huge ping times, that are fixed by toggling the QOS on the router (either way).... i will tell you this though, if linksys puts out a V4 and cleans up thier code, i will be the first in line to buy one...
