Hey guys, I haven't been on BC in so long. anyway, since the last time I've become a tech. Well, I've come across a problem that stumps me, and apparently a lot of other people around the country. My linksys BEFSR41 wired router has a problem with forwarded ports. I've done this hundreds of times before, and the routers always cooperate.. To the ports on the allworx system at work, to my old networkeverywhere router. The new linksys resets itself about every 30 seconds when uPNP, or Port forwarding is turned on. Infact, it seems if I use anything outside of the default settings, this thing goes haywire.. I've downgraded the firmware.. It didn't work, flashed the stock version back in and still had problems. People all around the country are having problems with it. Anyone here ever experienced it? Have a solution?

Make sure you have SPI turned off.
I used that same router for years on my network
with no problems forwarding ports to my server.

Though I thank you for the reply, SPI was removed with FW v1.41. I have 2.0.

No problem, thanks for your reply. I see its just a bad line of routers. Oh well, maybe next paycheck I'll get a different router.

One other thing came to mind, are you using DHCP or static IP's?
