I've just updated my firmware on my linksys (now Firmware Version: v4.30.14) and I have a strange bug. I've always disabled my remote access feature for security reasons. but with this new firmware i've still got the Remote Router Access option disabled but it seems I can still access it through my external ip (http://82.xx.xx.243).

Anyone else have this problem with this router?

Well, it's probably not accessible from an alien network. The router might detect that you are trying to access it from within your network, since you're making a request to your own IP. Try accessing it from another internet connection.
