His is working fine. Don't wanna mess it up. 8)

This is for a security fix but was curious if the NAT issue is there.

Ya, I won't be able to test. Router was handed off to my bro in law for his new place.

Why I'm hoping Twisted won't mind trying it for us.  :-\

Original plan was to give him the 878 however I had not been to his place to check it out until the day he had the cable internet guy come over and get his Internet setup. So the COVR was back up if I though the house as bigger than I expected. We placed the modem and 878 in the living room which is central to the house so he should have good coverage. I need to go back and test signal strength around the out side as he was some wifi outside.  ::)

I haven't heard any complaints from him.  ;D  Yet.  :-\

Furry, I have a beta firmware (1.20B03) if you wanna try it.

ftp://FTP2.DLINK.COM/SECURITY_ADVISEMENTS/DIR-878/REVA/DIR_878_FWV120B03_Beta_for_Security_20190223.zip

I'm tempted to try this. Ipv6 is funky with ISP in Canada (Rogers).

What does this have different than the regular 1.12b01?

I am not sure other than a security fix. I have not received the release notes.

You can give this a try and if nothing works for you, you can revert back.

I would keep in touch with D-Link Canada about your IPv6 issue.

Let us know in your other thread if this beta worked or not.

Thank you.
