    Knew that this would happen ever since the security team discovered that Cisco products had a defect in them.
    Besides, Linksys is a Cisco brand (for those who didn't know).

    I have the MR814v2 wireless router. Just tried out that username/password combination. Doesn't seem to affect this particular model.

    New Firmware befsr41 v1 v2

    There is a new firmware for the befsr41 v1 & v2 got it installed without much hassle, After upgrade all settings were still there.
    Small problem with Dhcp, it does not load when boot comp, so i have to untick
    Dhcp then tick again and apply to config page and then its ok.
    But this is only because i switch comp and all psu's at end of night.
    Maybe someone could shed light on why this might happen?
    Thanks
    dee

    Was checking out dslreports forum (as I always do before updating my router firmware) and read that some ppl are having to refresh there WAN IP like everyday (some every 1-2 hrs) and then a few are also unable to do any online gaming with disconnect.

    BEFSR11 update 6-4-2004 - INCLUDES a BOOTP vulnerability fix.

    Check for recent updates for your linksys routers! They finally addressed the vulnerability.

    It's about time... I don't know how they can keep customers with this type of support.
