RV082 vs DSLR Line Quality Test

    Seeing an issue running the DSLR Line Quality test behind an RV082. Basically the test only partially passes. Not sure if this is appropriate but rather than typing out all the specifics again I'll point to my thread over on DSLR for a synopsis.

    http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,17356926

    That thread has some links to other pertenant topics as well. If it would be more appropriate I can just retype it all here though.

    Briefly others are seeing this as well. I has been seen using the 1.3.2, 1.3.3.4 and 1.3.3.5 and the 1.3.3.6 I found. However if I flash back to the 1.1.6.14 firmware the Line Quality Test passes fully.

    Wondering if this might be an issue with the firmware or rate limiting in the router is working as it should?

    I found the 1.3.3.6 firmware on the linksys ftp site. It doesn't say Beta so not sure if that is a finished release.

    The DSLR Line Quality Test fails on both DSL and cable connections.

    I can't imagine that this could be a protection feature. Your tests show that it was newly introduced in 1.3.x versions of the firmware. So that would mean older firmware versions did not offer this rate limiting protection.

    If it IS a feature, there should be provisions to disable it the same as Block WAN Request can be Enabled or Disabled. The DSLR LQT is a valid method of testing a broadband connection through use of what is essentially a high ping rate, reverse tracert. Disabling SPI or DoS protection or the other WAN doesn't not fix these LQT failures.
