    RV042 firmware

    Just a note I have had a lot of problems with this router. Here is an email I sent to Linksys. I also received bad firmware from there supposed Tech Support in the Philippines 3 times from 3 diff techs. Now I’m getting disconnects about every 10 mins. I purchased this product (actually 7 of them) since this was to be the first product with Cisco involved. What a disappointment.

    Here’s the latest…

    We were able to set up successfully a VPN tunnel and connect end-to-end through the Internet to a remote location with firmware 1.3.6.

    Apparently your assumption was correct – that establishing a VPN through in a test environment does not work. In my opinion, this failure is a violation of OSI 7-layer model.

    Perhaps you could contact (or allow us to) engineering to correct this. The network topology (I believe) should have nothing to do with the ability of the VPN to successfully tunnel end-to-end.

    If you would take two rv042’s (or similar models) connect them on their primary interfaces to a class A net – say and attempt to simulate the VPN as we did you probably can duplicate the same problems.

    I would like to speak to a mgr to air his grievances with respect to the level of response we got prior to getting established with you.
