I have repeated the tests and results are similar. The reverse test, from my home to the office with the RV082 firewall enabled, gives 0% loss accross the board, but on the "System Statistics" the "Error Packets Received" and "Dropped ..." count is pretty high (both show the same number).
I do need a couple of firewall rules, additional to the default ones, to work around the lack of a shared VLAN (the Cisco 1548 has a '*' VLAN that allows you to share say a printer between all VLANS).
Anyone has seen a problem like this? Is there a fix, workaround, any way to improve performance?
Answering my own question: false alarm, the RV082's firewall does drop packets with a test like the one I did, which is a standard test used for finding bad routers on a path, but it doesn't drop packets in the general case.
I did a different test, this time testing for throughput, and nothing was dropped.
There remains a bug with the "System Statistics" page, shows several bogus values which don't even make sense, if you keep refreshing the page values jump from zero to a very big number, both of those are obviously invalid. I didn't find where is that info comming from, the errors reported per port, on each port page, seem credible, but at the Linux level using ifconfig there are no errors reported.
