After several phone calls to Linksys complaining about my problems with connection drops with the VPN on the RV042 about every three minutes, and begging for some beta or alpha firmware that addresses the problem, today I received via Email what they tell me is beta version 188.8.131.52. The filename for the file that they attached me is: RV042_184.108.40.206_050727.rmt and the file size is 4,834,093 bytes. The biggest concern is that since they didn't pack the file in a ZIP file, I have no way that I know of to check and make sure that the file is not damaged. Has anyone already flashed to this version? Did it solve your problems with the "3 minute disconnects" on the VPN? Does anyone else know what changes have been made or what else has been fixed in this version?? Would anyone else like to take a chance flashing this firmware into their RV042 to test it before I take the plunge? I would be happy to Email it to someone else to give it a try if they are game to roll the dice and see if it works... if you don't already have the file.
