Hello I'm having some trouble with my companies RV042 rev3, (Firmware version v4.2.1.02),being used as an internet gateway. Access to the internet slows right down and eventually freezes, (blocking access to the internet), once or twice per week. Rebooting fixes it (for a while.) I’ve noticed lots and lots of “connection refused – policy violations” in the log. I get hundreds, thousands of these policy violations every day. I’m thinking that the router eventually just gets overwhelmed by them and crashes. I have included a jpg showing a small portion of the system log. See "RV042 System Log1.jpg" I’m confused about what these policy violations are. The packets are all from internal, (LAN), IP address to external IP addresses. I have included a jpg of my firewall settings. See "RV042 Firewall general.jpg" I tried disabling SPI and “Block WAN Request” but it did not change anything. I have not created any rules to disallow anything so the default rule allowing all LAN traffic from any IP address to any IP address should allow these packets to pass should it not? I have included jpg's of my firewall access rules and port forwarding. See "RV042 Firewall access rules.jpg" and "RV042 Setup forwarding.jpg". What policies are being violated? Is it because all the refused connections are for non-standard ports? I understand the forbidden domain entries in the log because I've blocked access to Facebook.com and myspace.com using content filter in the firewall. I’ve tried resetting to factory default and then re-configuring from scratch but it makes no difference.
