I've got an older Linksys router and lately when I change anything on it, it freezes. Tonight I added a new port forward and it completely crashed. All the led's when solid, I had to unplug it to reset the damned thing. They are fairly cheap these days (it wasn't when I got it) but I don't know if I need to change. I mean is this a sign of impending doom or just one of those things?

Even if it does have the latest firmware, try reflashing it anyway. I know this is going to sound weird, but sometimes flash memory loses a bit or two. Ive seen it happen on bioses as well. Acting all weird, boot errors, the whole nine yards. Flashed them with the same version bios again, perfect working condition.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
