Count yourself lucky that the issue was found before the actual EOS date, or otherwise you would have gotten the usual Cisco response for these cases ("Won't fix, recommend switching hardware").

Thanks for posting this - had missed this update. Have been asking on the Cisco Forum about opinions for replacements for RV-34X - most seem to think Cisco has abandoned the Small Business line and that there will not actually be a "CBR" direct replacement. A shame - this has been a rock solid router for me but will likely look to replace once Oct rolls around.

Yes, thanks for posting.

My pet peeve, explained:
Once again I get the popup message about new firmware upon logging in to the router LAN interface.
Once again I click on the link in the popup message states the release notes are available here.
Once again the notes for the new release are not on the linked page, the latest listed in the previous release.
Once again have to hack the URL to see the release notes, change the "v1_0_03_26" to "v1_0_03_28":

Once again means have had to do this for every one of the last 6 or 8 releases.
End of pet peeve.

Overall I'm glad to see Cisco in on the ball still supporting this model line.

I have no problems with Cisco small business software. I just type Cisco RV340 firmware in google as I have a Cisco RV340 router and the Cisco web pages comes up with firmware and release notes. I don't hack anything.

It is true Cisco support is scheduled and they live buy their schedule. But while you have it, it is very good. I kind of doubt any small business router companies are even testing for things like this.
