    Hi to the community,

    I would love if someone could help me.
    I have bought RVL200 for a SOHO solution and configured it as a gateway.
    It also serves as a DHCP server.

    The problem is the following:

    When a new computer powers up, the router "locks" and I must reboot it.
    I cannot understand the reason. The new computer after the DHCP release, takes an IP and afterwards the router locks.

    Originally I thought that there was a problem with the DCHP, so I installed a DHCP server at a debian box and deactivated the DHCP from the RVL200. The problem still exists. If I power up my pc, then the router "locks" and stops responding to pings or to any other request. After the reboot there is no problem. If I reboot my pc, the router works fine. If I leave the pc for 2-3 days shut down, when I power it up again, same problem.

    Firmware version: 1.0.14

    Any suggestions ?

    A few things you could try.

    1. Reset the router to factory defaults
    2. Try and upgrade to the latest Beta v1.1.2 firmware.
    3. Also try upgrading the network drivers on your PC
    4. change the ethernet cable between PC and the router.

    I will try it.

    I haven't done it yet, because it is beta and I don't know if it is stable enough.
    The problem exists on every pc I boot up. The first time the router "sees" the pc, the router locks up (maybe a arp problem ?).
    I don't think the cable is the problem. After the reboot, all the netrwork connections are working fine.
