I am familiar with the Cheerios breakfast oats, but I do not understand.

I doubt that "supports Linux" is of interest to gullible MS users.

It would be safe to assume that those who reflash their routers are
looking for "works better" and more features. I am looking for
neither, though, I need this to work as it has worked in the past. It
is reasonable to assume that switching the device to Linux will have
other negative side effects and bugs as well.

I am aware of that, thank you, but I do not want to reflash my
router's operating system. I would sooner reinstall KDE 3.5.10 on this
machine to go back to that working configuration. However, I am very
happy with all the other aspects of KDE 4.2 and I would like to
continue using this desktop.

Please, I understand that you are trying to help, but stop trying to
convince me to reflash the router. Let's work on other solutions,
namely, which configuration files from KDE 3.x contain the address of
the print server, and the proper protocol to use.
