    Greetings! :)

    I was just wondering if any progress has been made toward getting the developers to look at the "need to reboot to get VoIP or FTP working again" issues (reported by several users on different threads) with the WRV200?

    me too

    I'm having this issue too. Let me know if you need anything from me to get this resolved, I'd be happy to provide more data.

    I dont use ftp much at all but have no issue with a stable voip connection, i am quite curious though and wondering if it could be an issue with the two being used in conjunction with one another and possibly PAT based if you are using alot of outgoing port for tons of ftp connections.

    Well, it's no secret the WRV200 chokes with a "plethora" of connections, so that's a valid theory...

    I don't think it is a combination of the two. I seem to have the FTP problem at one site that does not have VoIP, but at my house I don't see the problem and do have VoIP. I don't use FTP constantly with most of my traffic being HTTP. Go figure??

    ftp - reboot

    I have the same issue - ftp works for a few minutes / max 1 hour - after I have to reboot. i have a vpn with 3 routers and that not nice to work in this way - all 3 routers have this problem! :frown:

    I have been waiting for this router to mature for quite some time.

    Buggy firmware has been a plague since day one of broadband routers.

    Why don't Linksys (and other manufacturers) include:
    - a connection watchdog
    - reset timer
    as standard features in all their firmware?

    I certainly don't mind if a router needs rebooting every once in a while. But please make it automatic!

    Could all of you try turning off the firewall and see if that fixes this the ftp problem? I'm trying to verify this for linksys.

    Presently, it's hit and miss with the ftp functionality. FTP doesn't work for me "at all" whereas some (like yourselves) may get connectivity if even for a moment. Presently, I'm testing the WRV200 as an edge router; it's serving as my "gateway" router while I have my WRVS4400N on a different segment as my "protected" router. I'm forwarding ftp through the wrv200 to the wrvs4400n and I'm able to connect successfully to my ftp server from remote locations. This also includes conncecting to my home email server via webmail. However, if I use the wrv200 by itself, I can't connect to ftp at all except internally.

    Thank you for your input on this...

    Anyway, I would like my WRV200 to be the edge router in my home network, but the "VoIP issue" causes me to need a DI-604 on the edge of the network with the WRV200 and SIP unit connected to it.

    Anyway, even when VoIP is removed from the equation on the WRV200 the "reboot for ftp" issue still exists.

    What I've done is put the wrv200 on the perimeter, and then run cat5 from one of its LAN ports to the "WAN" port of my WRVS4400N while making sure the 4400n has a different LAN IP scheme from the 200 (200 is and 4400N is Here's the kicker; I turned wireless off on the 200 and I just control it "through" the connection I have with my internal router (4400n).This will happen by default based on your configuration between the two routers (no extra work required).

    What I have concluded is that the wireless chipset still requires some work because I've had "ZERO" problems losing the webgui since disabling wireless on the wrv200. I'm forwarding ports for a mail server, ftp server, and pptp vpn server from the wrv200 to the wrvs4400n and everything is working nicely. ).

    From there I have my VOIP router (RT31P2) connected to port 4 (this port has Qos enabled) of the wrv200. Additionally, I have another RT31P2 behind my first RT31P2. To do this, I just ran ethernet from an open LAN port on the first RT31P2 to the "WAN" port of the second RT31P2 router. Phone calls and faxing works!

    I was using 1.0.26 to do all of the above, but I've downgraded to 1.0.24 to test the ability of the wrv200 to accept router to router connections and then forward connections from the remote LAN through the WRV200 to the WRVS4400N via both routers vlan functions. This is still a work in progress.
