V1.0 firmware Web administration did not display well on Firefox at all.
Figure this one out - after some interaction with the box's webserver
and Firefox, the performance would deteriorate to the point the thru put
was worse than a POTS dial up connection.  

V2.0 is an improvement in that respect but still buggy.  It has a lot
more features but who knows if they work at all when a basic rule like
"Web Server" Virtual Server does not port forward to the defined IP# on
the LAN and opens up the admin page on the WAN port leaving uninitiated
users vulnerable?   

I had even written a personal letter about 502t's QA to Mr. Naik, MD
DLink India (after a few frustrating sessions with their Tech. Support
in Malad) but guess what - never heard back from him let alone an
