    Yes the European version is now available and has a couple of fixes as well.

    WRV200 Firmware v1.0.21-ETSI Release Note

    Change Log with respect to firmware v1.0.21:
    1. Changed the default wireless channel from 6 to 11, and added channels 12 and 13 for EU/UK.
    2. For PPPoE and PPTP WAN Connection, the default setting was changed to Connect on Demand with Max Idle time of 300 seconds.
    3. Fixed the side-effect issues (when DoS Prevention is enabled) in firmware v1.0.21.
    NOTE: US changelog:

    WRV200 Firmware 1.0.21 Release Note


    1. With remote management enabled, if a user makes three unsuccessful logon attempts, WRV200 will block the user's IP address for 180 seconds.


    1. Fixed the issue that IPSec tunnels cannot be established when the WAN connection type is PPPoE. This issue was found only on firmware 1.0.20.
    2. Fixed the issue that router may unexpectedly reboot when all traffic is coming from/to wireless hosts and there is a VPN tunnel with steady traffic.
    3. Stealth all ports on the firewall when DoS Prevention is enabled.


    1. IPSec tunnels do not pass NetBIOS Broadcast packets. This may create a problem when users want to search computers by names or to browse the network neighborhood on Windows Explorer. Users can use a LMHOSTS file to work around this issue. More information can be found at
    2. When DoS Prevention is enabled, remote management over http will not work.
    3. When DoS Prevention is enabled, DDNS will not work.
    4. When DoS Prevention and Web Block are both enabled, TCP and UDP traffic will be blocked.
    5. PPTP (WAN connection type) will not work when the PPTP Server and the Gateway are different in the configuration.

    Well. The bug with "(GMT+01:00) Sarajevo, Skopie, Warsaw, Zagreb" timezone was not corrected in this firmware version.
    The "Automatically adjust clock for daylight savings changes" option does not work, still.
    However, the summer time +1 hour correction will not be needed in a few days. We are switching to winter time this sunday, and the router will be showing a proper time (for a few months).

    One of my routers is loosing about 20 minutes a day. The other one is much more accurate. Anyways, the automatic time setting seems to work only on a router reset. Time is not corrected in any way between resets. So, since the routers clock is loosing quite a lot of time, long periods of resetless working result in a very large inaccuracy of the router clock. This makes some features (like time bases access restrictions) useless.
