I stopped using the Linksys WRV200, and am now using it as an access 
point hooked up onto my monowall-box. (disabled DHCP in WRV200, and 
connected LAN1 onto my Monowall)
Works much better ;)

My experiences with Linksys aren't that great, every (cheaper) Linksys I 
tried gives me somewhat troubles...
