    I think that I'm seeing a conflict between the latest firmware on the RV016 (2.0.10), the RV041 (1.3.5) and Fedora 5. Fedora 5 clients, behind either of these boxes appear not to be able to completely download webpages - if the VPN Routers' firewall is enabled. Disabling the firewall, and consequently enabling remote management, allows all webpages to download properly.

    The problem does not appear to affect any other OS' (we're running Fedora 4, Win 2K, Win XP and OSX). The problem also appears to disappear when the Linksys firmware is rolled back to the prior releases (or, of course, if the firewall is disabled).

    Has anyone else seen this? I really don't want to have to enable remote management to keep my Fedora 5 clients happy, but I don't seem to be able to make them run properly any other way.

    Me too

    I seem to be having this same exact problem with our RV016 (2.0.10) and Windows Vista build 5384. All of our XP clients still work fine. If I disable the firewall on the RV016 the webpages load completely. If the firewall is on I get partial pages or none at all...Still trying to figure this one out...

    Thanks for the Vista tip. I've been in touch with Linksys tech support and communicated it to them - and they have confirmed that the problem does exist with Vista. It took them longer to confirm that the problem existed with Fedora though - as they didn't have Linux running on any of the machines in their labs. The tech that I've been working with downloaded Fedora 5, at home over the weekend, and brought it in to the lab to test things out. They've now confirmed the existance of the problem and they've escalated it to a Cisco lab (thought they were all one company now?!). I'll let you know if I hear more,
