- RADIUS via VPN: some upstream routers reject “intelligent” traffic. This can lead to filtering RADIUS UDP packets and thus prevent hotspot logins. As a workaround RADIUS packets can also be sent through the VPN tunnel.
- GRO disabled on all interfaces (may lead to poor throughput, depending on the connection)
- Preparation for HSVPN routing
- Reset button easier to use: if the button is pressed and held, the status LED starts blinking after 10 seconds. If the button is released during the blinking period, the router is being reset.
