Firmware Release version 1.23NA Feedback
« on: August 06, 2010, 10:26:38 AM »

I see DLink has released a new version of FW for the 4500. Kewl.

I would recommend if your 4500 is working well for you at this time with what is currently loaded, not to update.

Not all issues seen on the 4500 are FW related and should be fully investigated with factory resets and minor configurations, help from the forums and until you can really deem the situation reason for an update.

Check out the forums, ask questions, SEARCH is your friend, read the stickys. There is great information out here and were all willing to help each other to find the answers and fix the problems.

This is what you need to make sure of. Do a factory reset of the router 1st. Then make sure that the zip file you got from DLINK is extracted and there should be a .bin file that your pointing the web page of the 4500 too. It should be uploaded and it should restart the 4500. Do another factory reset again. After it reboots, then go in and configure the router as needed. remember to save off your config file after you make changes. Helps in later use.

Good to hear....what was the problem? Take a look at the gaming and gamefuel sticky in the main forum. Has some good info for setting up systems even if you don't game, wired and wireless settings will work for any thing. You don't need to use them for printers though. Hope it works well.

Yep....22 and 23 still kept failing for me.  So, I flashed back to 1.15 and all is good again.  Not sure why it fails the way it does.  It's been that way for a while with any firmware past.  I wish they could definitely fix the problems and the rebooting.

SOunds like it could be HW related too, I'm working with 22 and 23 and both are working great here. Makes me wonder why yours isn't.

I've been testing 1.23NA for about 2 hours now. I've updated from FW 1.15 -> 1.23NA. I have to say it is running stabler for me. Only complaint I have is that, even though the LAN connection is rock solid so far, wireless is still getting a lot of packet drops and errors.  Also this 1.23NA fixed the port forwarding problems I've been having.

Ya, wireless isn't the best however its pretty good..I recommend a mixed mode of G and N only at 2.4Ghz If you don't have any N supported devices then use G mode only @ 2.4Ghz.

Hmm I just changed to your recommended settings. And I made my ssid not visible. Still see a lot of packet drops on wifi and a little bit on lan. O well atleast 1.23NA is stable to a point.

Here is my stats after I went from FW 1.15 -> 1.23NA:

LAN Statistics
Sent :168368
TX Packets Dropped :0
Collisions :0
Received :121179
RX Packets Dropped :0
Errors :0

WAN Statistics
Sent :153122
TX Packets Dropped :0

RX Packets Dropped :0

Wireless Statistics
Sent :29693
TX Packets Dropped :447
Received :24488
RX Packets Dropped :112
Errors :108

I hope the next FW will fix the wifi packet drops =/

those are acceptable packet losses. If you can't see your SSID means you might have disabled the broadcast of it. Other than this it should show up unless one of your devices does not support G or N mode. IF it supports N, then going to G mode only, the device should still see it and be backwards compatible.
