    That is apparently a Chinese-versioned rmt file. There is no change log there either.

    True enough. I found this version a week ago or so and loaded it out of curiosity. The interfaces, help, etc., remain in English, and there is no discernable difference between this 'Chinese' version and the Beta version available on this site. It works fine. On the other hand, it doesn't fix the Syn_Flood problem when running line quality tests, either.

    Just FYI.

    New Dual-wan settings in v.1.4

    I'm not sure if this is new to v1.4 but there are now 4 options in the Dual-Wan setting page: smart link backup, auto load balance, IP balance, and strategy routing.

    1.3.3.x firmwares only allowed Smart Link Backup and Load Balance (Auto Mode), so there would be two new features for Dual-WAN management in v1.4.

    Good catch! I don't use Dual-Wan (yet), so I completely missed the new options.

    Sounds very interesting. Maybe we won't need to manually protocol bind outbound HTTPS/SSH etc any more. Is there a help option that explains the two new settings?

    They also have newer firmware for RV042 (V1.5.1) & RV016 (V2.1.0). Anyone willing to try these as well?

    I'm going to try the new RV082 firmware this evening on dual ADSL connections. I'll report back over the next few days.

    I checked the Chinese user guide at that site to see if it had some explanantions of these new Dual-WAN options. No help there. It is well behind the the English user guide and was written for v0.99.9.

    Don't hold your breath that Linksys have actually done something clever...

    Installed the new firmware and have been massively underwhelmed...

    The first of the two new load balancing options seems to arbitrarily assign different LAN IP's to solely use one or the other WAN IP. Seems a bit of a waste of time to me.

    The second seems to be something very specific to China, and balances between a connection to China Telecom and somewhere else.

    All in all... A bit of an anticlimax. There was me hoping for something properly sesssion based or the like, as other routers provide.
