    OK, so now that we know the newer firmware disables Selective Acks, how do we get linksys to fix it for us?

    I have had terrible experience with firmware requests, etc. I figure you guys in this forum have a better idea of how we can actually get somewhere?

    Flaming bag of poop on their doorstep?

    I have reported this very issue with RV082 firmware v1.3.2 directly to the Cisco/Linksys individual responsible for identifying possible problem issues with Linksys routers in the European, Middle East and Africa markets. Thanks go to Toxic for the means to do this.

    Toxic has also reported the SACKs blocking issue for the recent RV042 router firmware update.

    We are hopeful that these reports will lead to a resolution of this issue in the aforementioned routers.

    Other than that, have you considered prayer?

    Hope it helps!

    I also added a direct report yesterday to our New England regional rep, and to one of the lead tech engineers who was present at their VAR Webinar yesterday.

    I honestly haven't had it affect any of my RV0 installs in any manner..when I upgraded the firmware on clients, and my own home RVO82, to 1.3.2

    This is going to sound bad, but what do you mean by selective acknowledgments. Do you mean Access Control Lists and/or which NAT sessions are actually created? I have an RV016 and would like to know if this applies to me. Ha, I really do know a fair amount about networking, but I'm just not familiar with this term.

    Selective Acks improves throughput (speed) on lines that tend to lose packets, by re-transmitting only packets that were lost, if any. "Defaults" to on (same as Yes) in Win98/98SE/ME/2K/XP and is N/A in Win95/NT.

    Speedguide.net's TCP Optimizer and DSLReports.com's DRTCP both give programs to enable/disable the feature.
