DNS320L will never have SMB2 (or higher), right?
« on: August 16, 2018, 03:11:29 AM »

I bought my DNS320L maybe two years ago.  Then I found that the product has already been discontinued by D-Link!

And then recently Microsoft will disable its support in future Win10.

So, what option does it leave to us?  I'm not willing to throw my DNS320L out of the windows!  I had paid about $400 (the device + two discs).

Correct, However MS said they were going to help solve the SMB1 in Windows 10:

Just enabling SMB1 in Windows 10 resolves connection issues...

I add this for documentation purposes if somebody else reads this post. You can get smbv2 with the alternative open source firmware ALT-F https://sourceforge.net/projects/alt-f/ that works on the DNS320L. I followed the instructions here: https://sourceforge.net/p/alt-f/wiki/How%20to%20Use/ and smbv2 works well on  my own DNS320L.
