Hello I hope someone has used this or is thinking about using this. I have a RVL200 and everything except the SSL VPN activex software. I can connect to my home network and access the computers on them but I cannot access anything via name but I can access via IP. I've tried a couple of things per Linksys tech support AKA install NWLINK NETBIOS and disable all security settings. The router is default except for admin PW, 1 QOS setting and adding user accounts for VPN access. I've tried to add a static rout for the router also but have had no luck. Thanks in advance, I'm sure some of you will have good ideas for me.

Not all VPN support Named Servers (DNS). My Netgear FVS338 has a option for it.

I can specify DNS IP's but on my network at home I've never had a reason to have one since everything is local and works from I'm assuming NETBIOS. Maybe it just doesn't work with the RVL200, I thought about creating a host or LMHOST file but since I will be accessing this from who knows where it would just be a pain to carry around the file when I can just look at the router. I think that I give up, I've tried everything I can think of, and even broke the config a couple of times. Linksys support was useless or I'll just deal with how it is and quit whining.

Hello, does anyone could tell me when the official version of 1.1 firmware will be released?
Does anyone is using this beta? Any problems?
I'm using 1,0,14 at the moment and I'm annoyed with the issue where the packet appears like coming from the router's LAN IP, when a packet is forwarded, in my Linux server logs everyting seems to have souce address 192.168.1.1 is this really working fine now?
Thanks for any help.

EDIT:
I've tried this one but forwarding seems not to be working fine.
The source addres is fine but the router isn't hosting my web site from inside on the port 80, all i see after typig my www name is my routers interface. :(
