Linksys products are sold through a wide variety of venues as "Mac Products" but the company reponded to my email question by saying that they don't support Macintosh. Who is playing who for the fool here? Is Linksys presenting its products to vendors as Mac compatible simply in order to get more sales? If not, they should make it clear to 3rd party vendors that their products are not to be sold as Mac compatible. If Linksys is telling stories, the Feds should be investigating for false advertisng and/or fraud.
To install this firmware update via your Macintosh is to download the MacTFTP Client from MacTechnologies.com. You can then use the files. It would be better to have Macintosh native files... It is sometimes hard to have a superior machine! There was also a great write-up in Macworld a while back (http://www.macworld.com/2000/12/01/howto/router.html).
Installed this when I got my Linksys Router and it works just fine.
Prior to buying this product I was using the Sygate product to allow multiple computers to have internet access and have up to four VPN connections at a time. I never had any problems, but the downside was that I had to leave a PC on all of the time. I installed this product to remedy that, and it it is great for Internet access only, but has very poor support for multiple VPN clients, whereas the Sygate software did not. I am very disappointed. I am using a Cisco 5000 VPN client with a NAT transparency feature and can only maintain one stable connection at a time. Also, I am disappointed with the fact that on their website they claim to support multiple platforms, but will only support Windows users for tech support. WHat is up with that?
The CNET mac newsletter had a link to this download. However, when I downloaded the updater it turns out to be a Windows "exe" file which of course will not run on a Mac.
My Linksys router is working fine. Why on earth would I want to mess with it now?
The firmware updater is supposedly to be run on a Mac, and it's located in the Mac drivers section of this site, but when I downloaded it there was only a .exe file. Last time I checked, Macs didn't run .exe files without the use of a third part emulator. Fortunately I have Virtual PC and was able to update the firmware from 1.30 to 1.37. Maybe they'll upate this site soon with an actual Mac version.
So far, no luck getting linksys's site to respond. No download possible. And where's the Mac version guys?
