We suggest downgrading to the 1.7 firmware. 1.8 was removed because of poor performance.

No.  They are going to leave the DGL-4100 owners in a lurch and not correct the v1.8 firmware to enhance the network performance b/c they are too damn busy making new products instead of supporting the ones folks already own.

Mine runs 1.7 just fine.  Infact Dlink should repost 1.7 as 1.9 to get all the knuckle heads still using 1.8 to "upgrade"

Lycan, can you elaborate on what the performance issues are?  I've been running v1.8 on my 4100 for over a year now without any problem.  Throughput is stellar.

We saw an increased number of users with poor wan performance, so the code was dropped. If it works for you, that is great.

Woo thread necro.

I've been running the 1.8 firmware for almost 3 years and just now I find out about 'poor performance' issues.  Awesome.

Jeff's question wasn't directly answered either.
