    The Linksys router BEFW11S4 and some other Linksys B products formerly were not securable (even with WEP encryption). Now Linksys has released new firmware to upgrade some of their equipment to WPA security status. Linksys users should go to the download page below to check for new firmware availability.

    The download page is here.

    I just installed a linksys befw11s4 and if I go to GRC and turn my eZTrust firewall off and run the test I still come up stealth except for port 113 which is classified as closed I cant close that port because it is the one my router uses. It must have a pretty good hardware firewall in that little black and blue box. That is the wireless router.

    Would like to point out this only applies to the newer BEFW11s4 ver.4. If like me you own one of the older versions this update is not for your router.
