    Has anyone had a chance to play with this unit? I am wondering if it's stable?

    It's not due for release until next month so I think it's unlikely anyone here will have one :wink1:

    Anyone know if the WRSV4400N will allow the following in the static DHCP table:

    System1 00-0A-0B-CC-16-32
    System1 00-0A-0B-CC-16-31
    System1 00-0A-0B-CC-16-30

    I need IP and system name setup as static for OS image reasons. Only one computer will be connected to the router at a time. And, yes all must be named System1.

    I'm getting a new router in the next month and I need vpn. I was thinking about getting the RVS4000, which is just wired gigabit 4 port. Then I was going to add an access point, but now, I'm thinking about getting this router, considering I can get it all in one.

    As far as I can tell it's pretty much the same build as the RVS4000, with the WAP4400N built into it. I'm guessing it's not totally stable based on other posts I've seen about the RVS4000, mostly due to early firmware I believe.

    Anyway, would be nice to hear from anyone that's played with this router, thanks in advance.

    It's still not out so the only people who could have tested it are beta testers, some of which may be lurking here :innocent:

    It's out now. Mine should arrive to my house tomorrow.

    I have this router and my computer that has the WMP300N will not connect to the internet with enrcyption enabled. When encryption is turned off it works fine. I have 2 other wireless computers (802.11G) which works fine with enryption. I thinks it an 802.11N issue. Looks like Linksys did another great job testing the product before release. Im begining to hate Linksys more and more with every product they release. What a shame because this router has a TON of nice features.

    Yea, everything draftn, from everyone seems to suck in some way. I think I'm going to avoid wireless n altogether for a while.

    I'm probably going to pick up the rvs4000, same features, gigabit, no integrated access point. The more and more I think about it anyway, I think it makes more sense to have your access point seperate from the router.
  9. I own WRSV4400N, it generate noticeable high-pitch noise when the switch is running gigabit mode. I don't know if my router is defected, but for sure it dissappointed me.

    I hear it also. It goes on and off at various times.

    I haven't noticed the noise. But, my computers nearby are pretty loud.

    It looks like you cannot pass netbios traffic through the VPN connection. I looked under the advanced settings and didn't see the option there like on my BEFVP41.

    I cannot do network browsing without setting up lmshost files.

    I too have this router. I have noticed a few things about it. It emits a high pitch squeal constantly. The router when running wireless encryption drops connections periodically. Another I dislike is if you run it for a long period of time it heats up like a toaster. I was hoping that when they designed this unit they would incoporate a way to automatically update the IDS signatures rather than downloading them from linksys every 2 weeks.

    I'll try recommending that option to linksys :thumbup:
  14. tarzanbigcity

    That would be a great addition. You might want to inquire about the high pitch squeal coming from the units as well. I know for some people it would be a deal pincher. :)
