Re: Radius timeout - Ver 6.44

We have had the same issue where we installed a new router with 6.44, we had to roll back to 6.43. Actually we were trying to use an RB4011 that shipped with 6.44 and wouldn't downgrade, so we had to replace it with a CCR1009. I was just googling to see if there was a resolution yet.
