All fixed.... (with a hatchet) Oh how i hate D-Link....
Reason for my troubleshooting, i was getting dropped packets left right and center browsing the net, listening to iTunes, VLC.... Reset, rebooted router, and nothing helped. So, i am using my backup non-wireless Linksys router until i buy something better than a pathetic DI-624 rev D in sheep's clothing.
Can be flashed with the alternative firmware from DD-WRT - very powerful, you can tweak everything, use as a bridge, AP, router only, whatever. I have four of them now all running DD-WRT rather than the stock firmware, providing a cheap WDS mesh around the house for wireless plus connecting wired devices like XMBC.
Looks like a nice router. I had a Linksys with DD-WRT and i will admit, before it fried, it worked like a charm. What i need now is a gigabit router with wifi (preferably N) and a USB downport for printer sharing. This one doesn't have what i need.
You're right - doesn't meet your needs. If you're a fan of DD-WRT, this one looks like a winner in terms of Gigabit, Wireless N and USB but it is pretty expensive compared to the cheap and cheerful WHR HP 54G, coming in at around £110 GBP.
