Would you be interested in a custom firmware to enhance the features on the RV016?

    I did a quick search and didn't see any so I'm assuming no one has yet. Is anybody interested? I wish I knew how but unfortunately I'm more on the admin side than programming. This router actually seems pretty powerful but looks like it has some unnecessary limitations to it.

    It seems to me that a few minor tweaks could make a big difference in functionality. The big problems I see with the current firmware (may be on purpose) is that it supports 13 VLANs but only up to 5 additional subnets (what the hell is the point of that?) and that settings like port forwarding are limited to only the main subnet because you can't change the first 3 octets. I could easily be wrong but I'm thinking those changes would be pretty easy to do.

    Also it would be awesome if it could support VLAN trunking though I'd imagine that would be a lot bigger change.

    Let me know what you think. I'm new on here so sorry if this is not the right place or the right way to go about this.
