    I had some problems in the past days (see WAG54G continously reboots thread) and I had to upgrade to the last firmware version (1.02.7). I noticed that something has been added but I also found that irc clients (I tried mirc, virc and kvirc) have big problems (ping timeout). Only XChat-2 let me be connected without often disconnect.
    So I tried to turn off "WAN request" but nothing happened. Only when I set "Firewall Protection" to "Disabled" I could use mirc as well as before upgrading.
    Since I use the same configuration as before, I can affirm that the new firmware changes something in the firewall protection, and now, if I want to use mirc, I have to disable it.
    Does anyone know if something has been improved in firewall protection within the new firmware 1.02.7?
    Is there a way to make mirc works with firewall protection enabled? :?:

    I have just installed firmware 1.02.7 which seems to work fine. I have completely reset the box. I have also switched BACK on the firewall. This is working fine now. This was NOT the case with the previous firmware 1.02.5. Since I've installed that version I had to switch of the firewall completely. Now it's running fine with the 7 version.

    Although: so far so good since it's just an hour ago I have installed it.

    I'm still having this problem, but I found out that not all the irc clients are affected; for example, mirc and visual irc disconnect, but xchat and hydrairc don't. I can't understand why and this is driving me mad! :evil: :cry:
