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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
