    will there be any side effects?

    i am currently using Firmware version 1.44.2, Dec 13 2002, and am planning to replace it with BEFSR41 v1.0 Firmware version 1.46.2, August 30 2004.

    what are the advantages of upgrading firmware? i am hoping to find a starting script, but are there any other features?

    Startup script? I think you'll be dissapointed!

    1.44.2 is regarded as the old favourite stable version - although I've now sen that 1.39 is the fastest.

    The newest versions fix some bugs/ vulnerabilities (and introduce others). I ran fine with 1.46.2 before selling on my 4 year old router.

    I never did sort out some upnp issues with WAN/LAN games, but had no problem with multiple vpn sessions etc which other routers of similar age couldn't handle.
