Dont think so 1.32FINAL was the final firmware for the DIR-655 device, 1.34 was only a minor bug fix of the securespot issue.

Incorrect as there was also 1.33 which:
1. Fixed:  Correct HNAP issue.
2. Fixed:  DNS relay issue ( WAN Slowdown )
3. Added:  Advanced DNS descriptions

If you upgrade to 1.34 you would also receive these fixes/additions.

Did 1.34 actually fix the securspot issue for everybody ?  Or mostly everybody ?

I have an issue with 1.34NA where the router will crash everyone once in a while.
Actually, not fully crash.
Just my VoIP will stop registering with there providers.
I have 2 separate VoIP lines each from a different provider.  Approximately, Once evey 2 weeks or so, they will go down.  and the only way I can get them to re-register is to reboot my DIR-655 router.
I think that downloading torrents my exaggerate the issue...

VoIP is using port 5060 possibly 5061 as well.

sounds like a BUG! no?

To correct your VOIP problem, another poster has suggested (successfully) to change your Advanced Firewall SIP setting to "unchecked."

I have the same problem and unchecking SIP setting does not help. Even putting the ATA in the DMZ does not help. Even in the DMZ it blocks outgoing ICMP packets from the ATA. Honestly so many of the features on this router simply do not work. I have an A4 which I reflashed to 1.34 to help with this issue... it was better but I still lose VOIP every 8 hours or so. Considering this router has been on the market for a few years this is really not impressive.

maybe its the A4 version that is problematic rather than the 655 in general....

It is possible, but I still cannot respect the company for bringing out a buggy product and then being very slow to update firmware.

No bugs here...

just because you have no problems does not mean your router has no bugs. You just have not used it in a way that reveals them. A bunch of features simply do not work on this router. DMZ and website filtering are rubbish. When I put a device in DMZ it still blocks OUTBOUND traffic... WTF

Trust me, I am using it quite intensively.
Those features should not be in use anyway  ;)

I would like to know when are they going to release a new firmware update to cause they can fix the wireless N range problem.

Is there a wireless N range issue? Or is it your environment that limits the wireless range/quality?

Doing N here, transmitter on north side of the house, passing through 30 feet indoor walls, concrete +brick walls outside walls and still able to get wifi with on the south side, up till 50 feet into the garden...

Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one that's had problems with the DMZ not working properly and issues with VoIP that no combination of settings appears to fix. This router has great features, but I'm always wondering why doesn't this stupid thing just work! >:(

DIR-655 has 802.11n coverage issue?

I haven't face any for the setup I have. The DIR-655 I have is set up in one corner of an executive apartment which is approximately >1700 sq ft in size and it is still able to provide decent connection at the other diagonal corner of the apartment.

The 3 antennas of my DIR-655 are strategically positioned in such a way that each is facing a different direction, based on my limited understanding of the 'field of coverage' of the antenna.

I also have great coverage with my DIR-655. I live in a 1500 sq ft house and the router is set up in one corner of the house and get a full signal all the way on the other end of the house.

That is a B revision router not an A.

What make me mad with d-link now is i have the rev A router and DLINK will not support ipv6 with that router only with the rev B routers. I really think DLINK needs to update the REV A routers with IPV6 update for A router users. if Dlink keeps the same model and then changes rev but does not add the same features as B has for A then this is poor support from DLINK. if this is DLINKS practices then i will never buy a dlink router if they continue this poor support practice. >:(

There is a hardware reason there is rev. B: IPv6 support requires more than the rev A can handle.
So not so much not wanting to support. You bought it without IPv6 support or the promise of it being upgraded, so don't be expecting features that weren't there (or promised) in the first place. That's just not realistic, you don't marry a 200 pound woman and then expect her to get perfect 90-60-90 size...

Maybe nail down exactily what ports your VOIP is using. I use Magicjacks and MagicJack plus and I had to configure them in Port Forwarding TCP and UDP Allow for ports 5060,5070  and another setting for 49152,65525. Perhaps this will help with VOIP at least.
