Apart from that proviso, update your formware to the latest version, which is 1.45.7 for versions earlier than 3, and 1.04.17 for version 3. All available from http://www.linksys.com/.
My router is the BEFSR41 ver 3. I have upgraded the firmware to 1.04.17.
Will let you know if there are any more problems.
