    I am a Windows Vista technical beta tester and when using Vista with the Linksys RV042 with Firewall and SPI enabled I cannot get a connection. I was hoping this beta firmware update would resolve the issue, but it does not. I had bugged this issue in Vista, but Microsoft closed it and said it was a known issue and Linksys should be releasing updated firmware to address this.

    Anybody know if this is the case?

    i'll see what i can find out. however, i would guess Vista wants to do someone different whilst ALL other Operating systems work fine with the RV042.

    I wonder who's at fault :) no doubt Linksys will bow down to mico$ofts demands instead of M$ fixing the problem themselves.

    Is it that you can't access any webpages, or do some pages such as www.google.com load?

    Had and issue with fc5 which sounded similar, couldn't load most pages but a few random ones such as google.com worked.

    No problems here

    I've been using Vista Beta and right at this moment I'm using RC1 and I am behind a RV042 firewall and behind many of my customers RV042 firewalls.

    I have not seen an issue, everything is working great in respects to what you are speaking about. Exception: I've seen many other issues but not this one.

    I did have something interesting happen though. I loaded RC1 and everything was very slow, couldn't get to a lot of pages, so I disable and re-enabled the network connections and this seemed to resolve my issues.

    Oh, yea, I did go to the updates and they did have an update for my NIC. Not my wireless nic but my embeded broadcom NIC but both NIC we causing issues.

    Can you give a few more specifics about the issue so I can recreate it and hopefully pin point the issue?

    I'm also am testing vista in a much more convoluted environment, i believe the vista machine is double nat'ed, I would have to look at the physical cabling, but it is at least single nated behind a wrv200. I initially had slow connectivity but for some strange reason it was only to mircosofts sites. Once i installed RC1, all the problems vanished.

    perhaps the title should be Vista breaks the rv042 :)
