A PS Vita using 2.4Ghz, mixed 802.11n/b/g mode, channel 11, 20Mhz, with HT20/40 coexistence enabled (and it's greyed out so I can't select disable anyway).  WPA2, AES encryption, still causes the router to delay traffic travelling over wired connections.  A desktop that is connected via ethernet has pings to Google.com go from 32ms to 800ms when the PSVita is using the WiFi connection.

To get HT20/40 coexistence feature, you have to select single mode N first. You will see slower performance until you get HT20/40 disabled.

You need to select Auto 20/40Mhz for better perfomance as well unless your devices don't support 40Mhz band width...

I don't think any Sony issues have been fixed in this build yet. There are some issues with Sony that D-Link is working on I guess...

A PS Vita using 2.4Ghz, mixed 802.11n/b/g mode, channel 11, 20Mhz, with HT20/40 coexistence enabled (and it's greyed out so I can't select disable anyway).  WPA2, AES encryption, still causes the router to delay traffic travelling over wired connections.  A desktop that is connected via ethernet has pings to Google.com go from 32ms to 800ms when the PSVita is using the WiFi connection.

If 2.4Ghz is disabled, the nVidia Shield now seems stable on 5Ghz.  The Shield can connect to WiFi, and not cause the large jump in pings for all wired traffic.  If 2.4Ghz is on however, the 5Ghz WiFi seems to cut out just long enough to cause the nVidia Shield to pop up that you've been disconnected every few minutes.

http://shield.nvidia.com/

Let's my desktop with it's power hungry GPU render the games, which I can then play on a portable handheld, or I can hook HDMI up to it and play on any TV in the house.  They're also working on an official way to play games from outside your home streamed from your desktop.

I see that this nVidia product is only certified with a NG router...it's possible that this feature may not be compatible with the 5500...yet.

Actually, one of the things that annoyed me most about it not working previously was that it's featured prominently on nVidia's page as one of the routers most recommended (Dlink did a cross promotion with nVidia  at the DGL-5500's release - are you a gamer?  Here's a gamer's router, the all new DGL-5500!).  Here's the page of routers now recommended:
http://shield.nvidia.com/accessories-hardware/

The DGL-5500 is still on there, second row, all the way to the right.  I guess it had to have worked with the original release (and it works with this release too as long as 2.4Ghz is off while it's connected to 5Ghz.)

Plus, look here: http://www.dlink.com/us/en/home-solutions/connect/routers/dgl-5500-gaming-router

Dlink's own page makes big mention underneath the Streamboost section and says this:
Optimized for NVIDIA GameStream™
Your router is about to have a lot more fun. That’s because it can now stream all your favorite PC games to the NVIDIA® SHIELD™ portable to play anywhere in the house using fast, ultra-reliable NVIDIA GameStream™ technology. The DGL-5500 delivers lag-free, high-performance game streaming from GeForce® GTX™-powered PCs or NVIDIA GRID™ cloud gaming systems.

AH, thanks for the links, very helpful.

Hmmm...well if the 5500 is compatible, I would presume there could be a configuration issue or something is going on in FW and this feature...

Were you able to test 2.4Ghz with single mode N, Auto 20/40Mhz, WPA2/AES only and HT20/40Mhz disabled?

Do you have all N supporting devices or do you have a mix of G and N?

Still no support for dlna. This is probably why ps3 media server is not working for me.

 I know it was posted a while ago about DLNA. Not sure if DLNA will ever be supported as this is a gaming router and not a media router...

I would phone contact D-Link support and ask to see what they say about it...

I've been using PS3 Media Server with this router since it was released.  Might need to check PS3 settings or router settings? 

The issue I've been having though is that when I'm using PS3 Media Server to stream a movie on the 5GHz AC band to a wireless AC bridge that connects to my PS3, the signal will sometimes just drop randomly and I have to start the movie again.

What wireless settings are you using for the 5Ghz?
What Mfr and model is this AC bridge?
