DIR-665 firmware update?
« on: July 28, 2014, 06:34:38 AM »

Will there ever be a firmware update for the DIR-665? Besides any necessary bug fixes, I'd love to have a "Guest Zone" on mine as I did on my old 655/A2. Thanks for any consideration.

Link>Welcome!

Unfortunately this router has entered in to EOL status I believe and will no longer have any development done one it. I'm not sure why, however, this router never saw any FW updates over the years since it came out. I actually never have even seen one of these in person.

I recommend if the router is working, keep it going. If not, then upgrade to a more newer generation model router. If your looking for this same class router, I believe the DIR-835 has the same specs as the 665. Also the DIR-857/DIR-836L is as well. The 835 and 857 are still live however not sure for how much longer. There hasn't been any FW updates and from what I know, unless it's a major security flaw, there won't be any thing forth coming. I have the 835 and 857 routers and they are very stable and work very well.  ;D

The 665 seem to be a one off router for some reason that didn't seem to follow D-Links model vs spec marketing. We see that most 5 and 6 series models are all single 2.4Ghz band routers, while DIR 8 series are dual 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz band routers. This 665 didn't follow that for some reason. It's an odd ball for sure.  :-\

Sorry that I can't be of more help.

Thanks for the info, Furry. I really appreciate it. Mine does work well and hasn't had any issues as of yet. Being the odd ball that it is, it coulda turned out to be a good one had it taken off.

Ya, I agree, I presume that maybe it may have been ahead of it's time since client side HW was limited when it first appeared. I think D-Link was the first to have 450Mb on WiFi back then. I don't think it took off until just a few years ago...

I may have spoken too soon when I said I haven't had any issues... I'll start a new thread on this one  :-\
