Great find!!!  Seems to have worked for me as well.  Any other settings disabled or have you left everything else default?

KEWL, sounds like this could be a work around for some of the Wireless issue. Will check it out tonight when I get home.

Beta 08 is the best one in the 1.21 series so far.  When I first loaded it I got nightly disconnects while playing TF2.  That went on for about a week and then they just stopped.  Very strange.

No VoIP issues like beta 03 had.  No slowness or disconnects like the original 1.21NA had (after the first week of drops while gaming).

Though my wife took my DGL-4500 to FL to visit her parents and I've been using a FortiGate-60 in it's place.  I must say, the FG-60 is noticeably more responsive, but then it's a professional grade small office firewall so I would hope so.

What HW version are you using?  ??? I'm on A1 and only thing I had problems with was the WiFi N Mode only. Random disconnect there.

First off I would like to thank you guys for being out here to interact with the public while the firmware is being patched. I know it must be frustrating having things break in each release and having to listen to us. This wireless N animal has caused a lot of problems for all the manufacturers. But I think D-link is close.
  I received my RMA replacement a few months ago and never set it up because I didnít have a test environment and I was already running stable with a different replacement. I decided to give it a go with the A2 you sent me so that I didnít completely waste your time and efforts. My results are completely not what I expected.
  I booted up the router with the 1.12 firmware preloaded and I experienced the lock ups. And some of my server stuff was getting randomly blocked (UT 2004 was unusable, Rune would fall off the server lists do to UDP issues, UPnP was horrible, network discovery from windows 7 would crash the router, and I couldnít get to my proxy). At this point I also had a new ISP. For the 1.12 test it seemed to run slightly better with the A2. ISP side seemed a little better as well.
  I then loaded 1.21 beta 8 (I downloaded it as beta 8 and it shows on the firmware page as Ď1.21NA, 2009/11/23í). It ran flawlessly for 4 days. At that point I loaded some more settings, turned on all the servers, and enabled UPnP. The router was up for 28 days and then my MODEM rebooted because of an upgrade from my ISP. I didnít touch the router and it ran another 10 days. At this time I was configuring my modem for static IP addresses. I still did not touch the router.
  To this day it is still running. During this whole time the wife and I have been playing a LOT of MW2 on Xbox Live (both have OPEN NAT with only UPnP handling the requests), I have downloaded approximately 120 gigs of torrents, My servers have handed out roughly 90 gigs of FTP files, The web servers have been up 24 hours a day, My game servers have been up for about 20 days, I have been on VPN a handful of times, and My internal network has probably moved close to 3 Terabytes due to a re-org I am doing. All of the wireless devices have stayed connected in mixed mode and WPA2/WPA Personal (I have only tested speeds of 130 at this time but I am going to make the adjustments to get 300 on two laptops). I am still getting 50 ms response times on the servers and in game on Xbox Live. Also, I can still access the configuration pages internally and externally as quickly as the day I loaded the firmware.
  The only issue I am having is a slight latency issue in UT2004 and an IM proxy will not pass data through. I will try the new firmware and see what my results are. I will post in the thread for it. Again thank you and if there is anything you need from me, just shoot me a PM.

Tired of messing around with D-Link and all the broken promises?  Want to roll your
dgl-4500 firmware back to 1.15 right now?  The two links below have the fix. This
is not a joke.  It works.  Both sites are very reputable and people have tested it.

http://www.ispgeeks.com/wild/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=4224#15926

and

http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r23720820-downgrade-possible-DGL4500-12xNA115

Follow the simple instructions and tell d-link where to stuff it.

Christmas was a little late this year but better late than never!
