Still here ... FTL drives offline
Just my 2c here, I had a whole heap of problems when I first bought the D-Link 2500u, including line dropping.
I quickly came to the conclusion that it had to be a firmware issue, checked my hardware version, downloaded the latest firmware, did the whole hard reset process before and after flashing, and it's been quite stable since.
Just make sure that you're flashing it with the correct hardware version to avoid bricking it. Mine is BRU_D running RU_1.58 firmware.
Dont worry i have also lost faith in Dlink.
On our ADSL router, i can access the Dlink's config Web Gui via the internet dyn DNS even though its been disabled.
I only want to be able to log into it from the LAN, So the feature does not work it ignores my config.
So i had to enable it and only allow a specific IP, I figured Google wont hack me so i set it to only google may access it :-)
Luckily we are getting our IS Fiber tomorrow then i can chuck both Telkom and Dlink
ADSL routers are relatively inexpensive these days. I would just replace it instead of wasting all those frustrating hours.
These are Broadcom and Conexant chipsets
