    I am using the rv042 as my router at the office. It is working pretty good, except it will block some of my users a few times each day. When I look at the logs, I see a bunch of IP Spoofs. Is there something that could have been installed on all of the Dell laptops, which is triggering an alert on the rv042? I noticed that it only happens on the Dell laptops. Is there anyway to disable this?

    Please, does anyone have any idea what might be wrong? The idiots at Linksys support do not understand the problem. They keep asking me to do stupid things like plugging a machine directly to it.

    Not to sound suspicious but could you maybe have someone on your network using a program for IP spoofing?? This maybe the case if someone was doing illegal downloading and did not want to be found out on the LAN or a virus hiding it self, even a general error that is causing the even to happen. As a way to stop if from happening you could tell your router to not log the event when it happens, however I would make sure that there is NO way the error real before doing this. I hope this helps :)
