Beware of RV220W firmware 1.0.4.17

There are still some old and new issues. This should not be so at a previously highly rated router manufacturer as Cisco.

1) Please, observe, that after a firmware upgrade from 1.0.3.5 to 1.0.4.17 it was needed to delete all the access rules and create them again to make sure, they were all working   We had 40+ rules and were down for some several hours until this was detected. Outbound traffic was working.

Quite frankly: this has been seen before and why has Cisco not addressed this ? A smooth upgrade is expected by the customers.

2) The firmware is released with a reissued certificate with the same serial number.

This is bad practice and should simply not happen

It is preventing access to the router from e.g. the Firefox browser.

Old Certificate:

    Data:

        Version: 4 (0x3)

        Serial Number: 14872231 (0xe2eea7)

        Signature Algorithm: sha1WithRSAEncryption

        Issuer: CN=588D09E2EEA7, OU=RV220W, O=Cisco Systems, Inc., C=US

        Validity

            Not Before: Mar 13 02:40:08 2009 GMT

            Not After : Mar 11 02:40:08 2019 GMT

        Subject: CN=588D09E2EEA7, OU=RV220W, O=Cisco Systems, Inc., C=US

New Certificate:

    Data:

        Version: 3 (0x2)

        Serial Number: 14872231 (0xe2eea7)

        Signature Algorithm: sha1WithRSAEncryption

        Issuer: CN=588D09E2EEA7, OU=RV220W, O=Cisco Systems, Inc., C=US

        Validity

            Not Before: Jan  1 00:00:15 2011 GMT

            Not After : Dec 29 00:00:15 2020 GMT

        Subject: CN=588D09E2EEA7, OU=RV220W, O=Cisco Systems, Inc., C=US

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Certificate%20contains%20the%20same%20serial%20number%20as%20another%20certificate

3) The hair-pinning problem is still not solved saticfactorily.

All access from the LAN using public IP-adresses have the internal IP address of the router as the source address

I have not tested extensively yet, but at least now the IPv6 tunnel does not have to be restablished after a reboot and the NTP time settings seem to have been fixed.

Just some info for other users...

If you are deploying any update to a live system then you should either NOT upgrade untill all facts are known or you have run a test against some devices already. what happens if your router fails? do you have a spare? if so test the upgrade on that. if you dont have a spare then the live system is dead until a replacement is gained.

Personally the amount of changes on this firmware update should really make a full reset before/after the upgrade.

I'll list the known changes here in a moment.

Anyway just my two cents worth....

Yep, that's the right way to do it. Just blame the customer and assume no responsibility for bad craftmanship.

For example, right after logging.

Re: Beware of RV220W firmware 1.0.4.17

I really have to recreate all of my access rules ?

I still have 3 of those routers !

I aslo cant believe they still have hair-pinning problem !

Silver

Re: Beware of RV220W firmware 1.0.4.17

Am i correct in saying that the so called hairpining problem is just that Cisco have not added this as a feature?

Re: Beware of RV220W firmware 1.0.4.17

Any cheap router is supporting this, so it should rather be considered basic router functionality than an optional feature.

New Member

Re: Beware of RV220W firmware 1.0.4.17

at first, it didnt work, and then they let me use a beta version (last year, had to call them) and it worked well. And then a new official firmware came out and it didnt worked again.

I made the mistake to delete the beta version I had, of course...

So now all my users whith a laptop need to use different shortcuts to access our servers according to where they are (in or out the office).

Hair-pinning is a pretty basic feature, we shouldnt even talk about it IMO. I bought 4 of these routers, still using 3 but you can be sure I wont replace them with Ciscos.

Re: Beware of RV220W firmware 1.0.4.17

Well, actually it does work when you are having an access rule for each port used, but the weird thing is, that the source address of the request is the LAN router address making it impossible to act based on which IP-addresses the request is originating.

The DMZ feature is also basic router functionality, but apparently only present as a GUI checkbox, which I have not yet discovered the purpose of.

Anyway an access rule as

Always Allow      Any     Enabled      Inbound (WAN (Internet) > LAN (Local Network))      192.168.1.5 - 192.168.1.254

will open the LAN for access to any server port using the external IP. It seems to be working although it is not inbound WAN traffic.

However, as the external address is not mentioned in this rule, probably only sites with a single server can use it.
