    have been running a Linksys BEFSX41 on a Motorola Surfboard 5100 for a few years now with no problems. The router and modem almost never need to be reset. I decided I wanted to have the ability to VPN into my network and upgraded to a linksys RV082. The unit arrived yesterday and had the latest firmware (.14) already installed. I installed the unit, configured it for my network (10.10.1.x) and it wont stay up for more then an hour. Sometimes it locks up within a few minutes and other times it runs for an hour or so. The unit goes into Diagnostic mode and the power (green) and red diagnostic light go on and I have to unplug the power to reset the device.

    I also downloaded the last rev of firmware .11 and then reset the unit to defaults in an attempt to sync the hardware and firmware, reboot and lastly reconfigured and she still locked up.

    My question is am I possibly missing a setting that will prevent the device from operating normally?

    It may also be the case that the unit is bad, but I dont want to ship it back and wait for another one if its just a setting tweak.

    The unit got good reviews so I am at a loss here.

    Thanks in advance
