We have installed tons of RV042 routers, including many of the new V3 hardware versions.
On at least a couple of the new V3 hardware RV042s, I have seen strange behaviour:
1. The router requires you to login in (username and password) way too often. Sometimes less than a minute after you log in. This happens repeatedly and makes it difficult to configure.
2. After a period of time - a week, weeks, or a month or so, the following happens:
A. I'm not able to log into the router with the web interface, and
B. The router stops giving out IPs via DHCP.
Despite the above, the router appears to continue to work properly in most regards. Usually it's when a user says their laptop won't connect that I know I need to reboot the router - then it operates normally (except for #1 above, which always happens).
Since this seems to be a consistent problem we are going to RMA them but I was surprised not to hear about anyone else seeing this problem.
Anyone else witnessed this, or are we just really unlucky or doing something wrong?
