I haven't seen any beta for the EU region. I recommend that you phone contact your regional Dlink support office and ask.

If you want to, please post about your problems in the forums and maybe we can help find out whats going on.

 I can confirm this release breaks IPv6 when set up via the auto config wizard with Time Warner Cable.  Specifically DHCP-PD / does not serve IPv6 addresses to connected pc's. Also didn't seem to pull IPv6 DNS info from the modem. I had to set that manually.
 I reverted back to 1.01 and IPv6 now works. In fact, everything works quite well on 1.01 for me.

Thanks for sharing. I've passed this along to D-Link for review. I hope that they can do something for any future releases however since the Amplify line of routers is getting older now, they may not unless there is a security problem that prompts for a new release as these head into Phase out status. I'll do what I can to let them know about the issues.

If v1.01 is working for you, keep it loaded and enjoy.

I presume there won't be at this time as the router may have gone into EOL phase.  :-\
