I would presume that any feature development or other FW updates might be headed to EOL. Right now ALL Mfrs are focused on getting the WPS corruption fixed. So after that will probably be an Update for products effected by this issue.

I don't think there will be any fix for this router anymore and is unofficially EOS for bugs fix let alone new features.

No more development anymore. Support is probably limited and will eventually not be supported by DLink.
DIR-685 EOL

Last Official released FW is v2.00.

There is another site for setting FW thats not officially posted on D-Links main web site:
Review this:http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=48383.0

The forum will be here for after life support as needed for troubleshooting.
Time to move on. There are other DLink routers out there.

A suggested follow on router to the DIR-685:

Gook Luck.
