were you able to apply the update? What browser are you using? IE? Have you tried a different browser like Flock, FireFox? What happens when you click on the compatibility mode for IE?

Hmm...well, haven't used Windows 7 to update the router as of yet. Even using the compatibility mode and clearing the IE cache? Lets try that and see. If not then maybe IE in windows 7 doesn't like something. Might have to try a different browser.

Ah ya, we must give thanks to Bill huh? LOL well, glad you were able to get FF to work. Let us know if you need anything else. This is good info to know about Windows 7 and IE working with the router. Not sure if DLink can do anything about it, however good info for them to know and US.

I have win7 64-bit and both
32-bit and 64-bit IE work with the router pages.  I think I did the last fw update with it as well.

There can be an issue with xml that causes it to be afu.

I normally use Chrome right now on win7.

I can access it from Safari as well onmy Mac.

I do not have a Linux box up right not to test it.

Would be interesting to see if Linux does the same thing, however I bet not. Most linux distro's I've seen use Mozilla browsers. LOL. Will have to try my Windows 7 64 bit when I get home. I do most of my router stuff on my MacBook Pro and Safari.
