    Dear friends,

    I had tried to modify the RV042 LAN default mask (255.255.255.0). At first, I put the modification to get the Telnet connection. After that I introduced the current linux shell. When I put "ifconfig ixp0 netmask 255.255.0.0 broadcast 172.16.255.255" the Linksys accepted this modification, but when I rebooted it, it is back with the current /24 netmask (255.255.255.0).

    ¿It is possible to fix a bigger mask on the RV042?. We need more than 255 hosts. Its Firmware is

    Thanks in advance. :)
    Best regards,
