Re: WPS / Reaver
Still waiting on a firmware update for my WRT610N...

said by Bill_MI:Your snapshot looks different that that of Laramar below and seems to be missing the option that was added to disable WPS. Something seems very odd there.
Here's a screen shot and a revelation...
That spreadsheet, unfortunately, does not make any note of whether or not WPS can be disabled or whether the attempt was made while it was set to 'disabled'. It is difficult to put much weight on a doc only populated by unsubstantiated user feedback, particularly when it is missing a key piece of information. In the forum thread noted by Laramar below one poster confirms he was instructed how to properly disable WPS, but that when enabled the lockdown is not working. That would seem to hint that you can disable WPS with the new firmware, but it may not be clear how to do so.
It's the GUI that looks confusing, but when you toggle between 'Manual' and 'Wi-Fi Protected Setup', it will bring up a different page.
To disable WPS, you first have to click on 'Wi-Fi Protected Setup', then click 'Disabled'. Then click on Manual to bring you back to the wireless settings. It took me a couple minutes to figure that out on my e4200 v1.
Cisco should redesign that page. It comes back to how people thought clicking on Manual automatically turned off WPS, but it really does not.
So far, no firmware update for the Linksys E1000..latest firmware dated August 2011.
