Title: OS X Users
Post by: Howard2k on September 19, 2015, 01:15:24 PM
I bought this because I thought it might be useful in an OS X environment, but it appears not.   I even asked the guy at the store but he was probably more interested in the dollars.

H/W - B1
Firmware - 2.03

It appears that my options for using this in an OS X environment (10.10.5) are weak.   

Although it will route my traffic (good start!), it appears that there is:

* No support for Time Machine.
* Clumsy network mapping.


Has any had any success using this product with OS X?   
Can anyone recommend something that works?

I did find a questionable version of Shareport but it appears to be unsigned and there's no documentation or anything like that.  Is there a reliable and trustworthy version of Sharepoint for OS X that is worthwhile?

ok, called DLink and they said that the Version B device isn't suitable for use with OS X and I should return it. 

Shame, but hopefully that helps anyone else looking for a router to use in their Mac environment.

What are you attempting to do in a OSX environment?

I don't have this particular model however I have the 868L and other series routers and all work well. I don't have a Time Machine though. I use DNS-345 and Apple TV is about it.
