BEFSX41 Firmware from Sveasoft or another 3rd party?

    Is it true that the BEFSX41 and the WRT54G type routers are more or less the same except the wireless components? Has anyone tried to use Alchemy or Talisman firmware on a non wireless router? Is this supported or not? I really don't care about having a wireless router for my main internet connection but I would love to have the features that Sveasoft has created for the WRT54G series routers such as the ability to PPTP through the router with up to date firmware. I rolled my BEFSX41 back to an older firmware so I could do this since it seems Linksys/Cisco in their infinite wisdom has disallowed GRE packets to work. Anyone have any clues on this?

    there is no source code for the BEFSX41 amd they are also not the same hardware either.

    What firmware did you roll back to and where did you get it? I am having the same problem. I need GRE to pass though this piece of crap.

    BEFSX41 GRE protocol forward

    I also like to know that.. . . now have spent whole sunday with googling+reading help files/forums and configuring.

    Conclusion is that GRE wont run through BEFSX41 -i updated latest firmware today, but it didnt fix problem.

    In another forum someone else also said that downgrading firmware might do the trick.

    So.. . . what it is and where to get? How about other parameters, is that older one crappy what comes to another issues?

    Someone said somewhere that he readed from linksys pages that forwarding _PORT 47_ to VPN server does the trick too.

    (i know the difference between port and protocol so no need to remind for that, please..)
