Linksys BEFSX41 router / port 80 open by default

  1. Hi,

    I purchased a Linksys BEFSX41 router for a cable modem
    wan firewall to free up a PC for Sol 10.
    That box was previously the ``router'', RH9, iptables, etc. etc.

    A nmap scan showed port 80 was open on the BEFSX41 wan while
    remote access was disabled. The BEFSX41 is protected only
    with a password. There were quite a few hits to port 80 from
    ``all over the place''.

    On line tech support chat with Linksys on this...well...India?
    Tech support said port 80 cannot be disabled; it will disable my
    ``internet connection''.

    Anyone know if the BEFSX41 can be optioned to disable port 80?
    All other ports showed up closed.

    Also: anyone ever hear of a DoS issue betwen Linksys 4/8-port
    BEF*** routers? Was an issue with one telco's subscribers...

    Thanks in advance,
