    Linksys just posted an updated version of the WRVS4400N firmware, finally...

    According to the change notes:

    Version: 1.00.13


    1. Allow WPA shared key to take 64 Hexadecimal digits.

    2. Display wireless MAC address under "Status->Wireless LAN" page.

    3. Enhance DHCP server to support hostname up to 63 characters
    (was limited to 15 chars).

    4. Update IPS signature file bundled inside the firmware to v1.25.

    5. Update expired SSL certificates

    6. Update "WPA Shared Key" GUI term on WPA PSK modes to be
    consistent with other products.

    7. Put port 443 in stealth mode if no VPN client configured.

    Bug fixes:

    1. Fix issue that port 443 cannot perform port forwarding
    (was reserved for QVPN).

    2. Fix issue that single port forwarding cannot work together
    with IP based ACL to limit external access.

    3. Enhance UPnP command checking to prevent illegal packet

    I'm upgrading and testing now that it looks like between the expired certificate fix and forwarded port 443 I can put this back into service. Doesn't look like any updates to performance, though.

    I installed it and the router didn't explode. That's about all I can say at this time.

    Reduced wirless coverage, to include issues with the router clearing itself after POST is what I've already mentioned :). I'm back to 1.0.12 until 1.0.14 comes out because 13 wasn't much of an improvement unfortunately :(

    Still suffering masses of netbios packet loss over wireless :(

    Still getting 3-5 mbp pc<->pc over wireless. (Using MWP300N cards... not sure what else can I do to help it!!)

    Exchanged emails with linksys support... they agree the wireless looks like the problem... then tell ask me to tweak my MTU! Not sure how that is going to fix a rubbish wireless connection. (I had already tweaked it anyway for my broadband)

    They suggested I tweaked my beacon interval (had already done this as I have neighbours on G on different channels)

    Why is the PC<->PC speed so utterly apalling? (I can get over 8mbps to the internet...)

    Been a dog since I got it. Starting to wonder if I should have bothered. More early aadopter tax :-/

    Are your issues reported and even more important, acknowledged by Linksys?

    btw. is there any way of requesting RFE:s from linksys?

    The "Tom's Hardware" review mentioned one thing that is annoying:
    - no way of setting the admin "login" idle timer, which is about 5 minutes

    Another thing would be to have a toggle for enable/disable -ing HTTP administration, if you just want HTTPS as method of administration.

    (of course, a feature toggle for enable/disable -ing sshd would be even better...:) )

    Being that you're new to the forum, the reporters/testers responsible for getting these errors to linksys are myself, toxic, kspare, and eric_stewart.

    Rest assured, linksys is aware :)

    Why I choose to buy a more "expensive" (Linksys) model, was partly because it was a so called "business" class model. Usually, those models (from most vendors) tends to be reliable and the fixes (and missing features) comes with higher priority than home user products.

    But the process of doing those fixes and release them seems to go a little bit slow with Linksys :confused: Many people on the forum seems to have been waiting a long time for those fixes and features, and some have already given up on Linksys. Is Linksys aware of that as well, or have they grown to big after Cisco bought them?!
