I have a 9 months old RV042 router. It works on 1.3.10 firmware now. The device seems to become slower and more unstable with time. Some computers in the LAN are accessing HTTP while others not. There are temporary breaks in the HTTP, DHCP and the router WEB controll pannel services. The strangest thing is not working DHCP server for some computers, while others are getting IP without any problems. The temporary fix seems to be a router reset. I do fear the device is dying, so I replaced it with an old SMC router. The LAN seems to be working correctly, now. The conclusion is, all the problems were caused by the RV042. The device came with 2 years warranty. So, I should be able to get it repaired. I've heard about the capacitor related failures in this model. I can not try to repair it myself, because I would loose the warranty. I can not check the condition of the capacitors, as I can not open the case without loosing the warranty, as well. Is there anything I can or should do before contacting the Linksys service? ------------------------------- I've used a flash light to look at the capacitors through the sase ventilation grid. They seem to look fine. Also I'm able to hear an audible sound form the coil. The coil sound was referred as one of the symptoms of the capacitors failure. Still, I do not know, if it is enough to be sure the device is faulty.
