FORUM USER REQUESTS and BUGS
« on: August 02, 2013, 09:26:59 AM »

This thread is in regards to what users of the DGL-5500 would like to request DLink to review and consider adding features to the routers FW and operation. Also this thread includes any reports of bugs that arere-producible, that should be reviewed by DLink seen by us users. Please be detailed, concise and tactful when posting the requests and bug details.

Do not arbitrarily post defects or bugs here. Before reporting concerns about defects or bugs, please ensure that troubleshooting of the problem has been thoroughly completed before posting a problem about defects. Not all issues are a defect or bug related. Let other users help you troubleshoot the problem first before posting here. Non-related posts will be removed and moved to the correct forum.

Demanding anything will not get us anything. There are no guarantees.

Please keep other subjects, topics and questions to other threads and posts. This thread is just a central list of Features and Bugs for review by DLink.

If you like, you can PM me your list and details and I will had them to a list I've started here.  ;)


FEATURE REQUESTS:
Example: 1. Add router web page timeout options. (Would help to disable this when working with users in making operations in a slow manor or for those who like to keep the routers page open there browsers for a long period of time.)


DEFECTS:
Example: 1. At 24 MAC entries it said "You cannot add more rules because the table is full. " Need to find out if this is a defect if other rules are not set up in the pool or if there is an actual limitation on setting up the amount of MAC entries you can have.

FEATURE REQUESTS:

1. Wireless Status page (Status section). SSID   MAC Address   IP Address   Mode   Rate (Mbps) Signal (%)   Very helpful in seeing the wireless rate and signal information, but also helpful to see if any unwanted connections are active.


2. Advanced Wireless Page Additional tweaks, short gi, neighbor protection.

3. Larger logs page Very tiny window, DGL 4300/4500 was much longer + wider and easier to read.

4. Full Device Info Status page Super handy page with everything listed. Similar to DGL-4500

5. Special Applications page I used a few options here on my DGL-4300 + 4500

I have inquired about that MotherFo. We can also add to the list IPv6 suppprt. Not sure why or if it will.  ::)

Thanks for the list. Please be patient.

You pretty much requested everything I was looking for here.

I would add automatically filling in ports when an application is selected. On the 4500 when id select xbox live it would fill in the ports on this one you have to know what ports to open. Not a big deal but it was easier before.

Are these static host or dynamic?  Static hosts tend to show either "none" or the OS name Ex. "Windows" "Linux". This is due to the fact that StreamBoost captures the hostname of the connecting device from the DHCP request routine. You may create a DHCP reservation and have the host IP configuration change to DHCP to overcome this.

Great list to start, especially increasing 5ghz wireless range. Hopefully they will full fill the entire list.

Thus far as is with FW 1.01, router has been working great and really like it.

DLNA certification. It would come in handy.

13. Add router model, HW and FW rev information to the log in page please.

14. Add StreamBoost update information to D-Links DGL-5500 main web site page for users to get information and notification on when StreamBoost is updated.


Bugs:
1. Improve 5Ghz wireless range.

2. Improve StreamBoost operation with ISP modem and services. Down and Up link speeds are reduced when SB or Auto Estimation is enabled.

3. Logs don't seem to hold much if anything specially after DEBUG option is enabled. Logs clear out if router is rebooted. Not leaving any historical log history.

4. Rebooting DSL PPPoE modems and DGL-5500 causes network devices not to appear in My Networks or Priorities. Have to reboot the ISP DSL Modem once again to resolve.

5. In Mac OSX 10.7.5, after disabling ABE and rebooting the DGL-5500 while all devices are online, causes the routers web UI to hang and unable to gain access to the log in page. Tried Opera, FF and Safari and would not access the routers page. However all other internet services were accessible through the router. Router had to be rebooted to get to routers web page.

6. Notice that user experiences and operation of routers web page not as good when using IE, Safari and Opera. Odd behavior is seen when using these web browsers, Save functions don't seem to save correctly or web page loads are not complete, log in page fails to appear correct. Use of FF seems to be the best browser to manage the router. Other browsers should be the same I presume.

7. The use of ABE while gaming seems to lower the gaming signal in game and the game status signal on Xbox Live. For example, when ABE is enabled, users may see 3 Yellow signal bars in the games status information while playing the game. If ABE is disabled, users see 4 Green signal bars for the game status information which is preferred. This may effect other gaming platforms as well. Xbox was tested for this report.
http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=55119.0

8. Incorrect Identification
Device: Google Chromecast is recognized as Linux
Activity: SiriusXM audio streaming is recognized as Web Video

9. After the router reboots and the time runs out on the reboot status page, it takes another 10-15 seconds for a Mac Book Pro wireless to regain the WiFi connection. May effect other device platforms as well.
