    If you know how to read chinese, there is even a newer version on Linksys China website v1.5.1.

    RV042 Firmware v1.3.8.2 Release Note


    Issues Fixed:

    1. Fixed a bug in the Network Address Translation (NAT) that may prevent computers in the LAN from accessing the internet. This problem occurred to firmware v1.3.8.1 only.

    RV042 Firmware v1.3.8.1 Release Note


    1. Support RV016-like Bandwidth Management.
    2. Support RV016-like Port Management with the exception that VLAN is not supported.
    3. RV042 will first check if its wan ip address changes before it tears down the IPSec tunnel and reconnect.
    4. Removed the 45-minute VPN retry limit when Keep Alive is enabled.
    5. In the Access Rules Editing page, a new field "Enter Policy Name" was added. On the same page, a scheduling option of 24 hours was added.
    6. Enhanced the security of QuickVPN by supporting self-generated certificate on the router. Several functions (buttons) were added to the Certificate Management section on the VPN Client Access page. Administrator can generate new certificate, export certificate for admin backup, export certificate for QuickVPN clients, and import certificate for admin. The router's certificate needs to be delivered to all QuickVPN users and placed in the install directory of QuickVPN Client, e.g. C:\Program Files\Linksys\Linksys VPN Client\. This way the QuickVPN client will only trust these certificates placed in its local directory and will not be deceived by a hacker in the middle to connect to a hostile computer. With QuickVPN Client v1.1.0 or newer, when the client encounters a certificate that is not trusted, the client will pop up an warning message, suggesting the user quit the connection attempt. The export and import functions can be used when the admin wants to reset the router to factory default, but does not want to re-distribute the certificate to all of the QuickVPN users.
    7. Support Windows Workgroup over QuickVPN tunnel.

    Issues Fixed:
    1. Fixed the TCP Window Scaling issue with Windows Vista.
    2. Fixed an issue with MTU. After the VPN tunnel is established, changing MTU setting from Manual mode to Auto mode will cause on-going tunnel connection not able to transmit VPN traffic correctly.
    3. Fixed the known issue that the local DNS Server's IP address does not get passed to DHCP clients.
    4. Updated the maximum number of entries for protocol binding from 30 to 100 in the Dual WAN help page.
    5. Support the new PeanutHull DDNS service. The option, PeanutHull, was renamed to Oray.netPeanutHullDDNS on the DDNS setting page. The help page for DDNS was updated as well. (Note: In China, the specification of PeanutHull DDNS service was changed on Oct. 1st, 2006. Old PeanutHull DDNS client will not work after Oct. 1st.)
    6. Fixed a compatibility issue (firmware v1.3.8 and v1.3.7.13 only) with some cable modems that will cause the router to reboot.
    7. Fixed an issue (firmware v1.3.8 only) with firmware upgrade, which requires a power reset for https to function properly.
    8. Fixed an issue (firmware v1.3.8 only) with Port Management when changing a port's priority from Low to High.

    **If firmware upgrade should fail using the Web UI, a TFTP utility can be used to load the v1.3.7.2 firmware into the router. You could then upgrade the firmware to the latest version using the Web UI.**
