    Hi,

    I noticed that Linksys released a new version RV042 1.3.7.10 firmware.

    RV042 Firmware v1.3.7.10 Release Note

    New Features:

    1. Support multiple subnets when RV042 is in the Gateway mode, i.e. NAT enabled. Now users can specify multiple subnets on the Setup->Network page.
    2. Support Paid Custom DNS for dyndns.org. A Custom DNS checkbox is displayed on Setup->DDNS->DynDNS.org page.
    3. Support IPSec NAT Traversal in both Gateway-to-Gateway and Client-to-Gateway modes.

    Issues Fixed:

    1. Fix the "Selective Acks Off" issue that affects performance.
    2. Fix the issue with saving a pre-shared key with apostrophe.
    3. Fix the subnet mask issue. Remark: In previous firmware, when the router's subnet mask is set to 255.255.255.192,
    255.255.255.224, 255.255.255.240, 255.255.255.248, or 255.255.255.252, you will no longer be able to change the
    subnet back to 255.255.255.0.
    4. Restrict the Dynamic IP Range in DHCP Server Configuration to be in accordance with the LAN IP and Subnet Mask
    configuration of RV router. For Example, when LAN IP/Mask = 192.168.1.1/255.255.255.128, the DHCP IP Range
    the user can configure will be restricted to the range of 192.168.1.1 through 192.168.1.126.
    5. Fixed a PPTP Server problem that failed to establish PPTP connection when DMZ Host enabled.
    6. Disallow users to set x.x.x.0 in the LAN IP address field.
    7. Update the on-line help of VPN Client Access (QuickVPN) Setting.
    8. Modified the alert message as the following when enabling Remote Management.
    (1) When https is enabled, remote management enabled, and password being the default password,
    Message:
    The Router is currently set to its default password. As a security measure, you must change the password
    before the Remote Management feature can be enabled. Press "OK" to change your password, or press "Cancel"
    to leave the Remote Management feature disabled.
    (2) When https is disabled, remote management enabled, and password being the default password,
    Message:
    Please be warned that once remote management is enabled, it will be safer to remotely administer the router
    by https on port 443 instead of http. The Router is currently set to its default password.
    As a security measure, you must change the password before the Remote Management feature can be enabled.
    Press "OK" to change your password, or press "Cancel" to leave the Remote Management feature disabled.
    9. RV042 will listen to ports 443 and 60443 for QuickVPN connection. Remark: Earlier firmware only listens to port 443.

    Known Issues:

    1. Changed the DHCP Server implementation. When the DHCP client requests the IP address of DNS server, RV042 will offer the one obtained from ISP. (In previous firmware, RV042 offers its LAN IP as the DNS server's IP address.) However, if users configure a DNS server in the LAN and specify the IP address of the local DNS server on the Web UI, RV042 does not offer the local DNS server's IP address to the requesting DHCP clients.

    **If firmware upgrade should fail using the Web UI, a TFTP utility can be used to load the v1.3.7.2 firmware into the router. You could then upgrade the firmware to v1.3.7.10 using the Web UI.**

    firmware works rather well so far...

    I have been using this firmware for around 1 month now, and not 1 single problem. I am using the router rather heavily, and am utilizing the VPN functions as well. So far not one single problem...

    yes the beta should be the same as the official. if they don't find any bugs then it is moved from beta to official release without renumbering it or recompiling it.

    Does anybody know what the URL is to download the 50 user quickvpn version? I'm trying to get this information from LS on the phone right now, but it's like pulling teeth (department to department.) I have purchased this last summer, and I have my username and password, I just don't remember where the page was to actually use my username and password.

    Thanks!
