Thanks Imre,

I have just upgraded it with your firmware. Works fine so far for most 
of things. Actually some stuff is better than before.

I will proceed with more tests, specially the ones I had been doing and 
reported back to Belkin a while ago to make sure they are gone.

Is there any GitHub or anywhere to report the findings to ?
