Vista with RV series....

    OK. The TCP Windows scaling problem with the RV series (and most others with SPI) has been pretty well known now......

    When is Linksys going to come out with a fix? Seems that this "feature" is indeed in the TCP spec...........

    I would like to be able to test the new OS on my network......

    I guess it will be supported soon, but since Vista is not yet finalised, linksys/cisco doesn't have to rush this fix out since it is a Beta OS.

    I guess that's depends......
    One view is that this only affects Vista OS so should only be fixed after official Vista release.....

    The other view is that this is in the TCP STANDARD and Vista just exposed the RVs incomplete implementation of the TCP STANDARD. In this case, Linksys should fix this immediately and should not depend on Vista release....

    In either case, I will be happy just to see a fix or that Linksys is working on a fix.........

    Cisco's routers already support this so it is a linksys thing......

    For the time being, you may just turn TCP Windows scaling off in Vista:

    netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

    That will allow you to test Vista on your network.

    Sorry to resurrect an old post but I was wondering what the problem was and whether it is a concern now that Vista is released. I am trying to improve Vista performance over gigabit ethernet and am not getting quite the performance I'd like to see with the WRVS4400N. I'm not sure whether it's driver immaturity, Vista, or something with the router.
