Yes I am back. We're going to ramp up the forums again. Thanks to all the users that have been holding it down while we were away.

I'm not sure if the DIR-857 has a spec embargo on it. I'll find out and if I can I'll give you guys the hardware specs.

Well Im pretty sure the general specs would have to be public record to get the FCC stamp. Its the firmware I am interested in. Also its on the main Dlink site (ftp://ftp10.dlink.com/pdfs/products/DIR-857/DIR-857_ds.pdf). Hehe
