Firmware V 2.06
« on: August 04, 2011, 07:07:40 AM »

Latest Firmware Version   02.06
Latest Firmware Date   2011-8-4

Checked today and saw that this is now out but there is no info on what the changes are. Does anyone have any information or know when it will be posted on the site as to what this new version addresses?

Just checked the two sites I know of:

http://tsd.dlink.com.tw/

http://www.dlink.com/

and neither site offers a F/W Ver 2.06 for DIR-825.

Perhaps you are referring to a different router?

This is the DIR-825 forum.

Nope, I have the Dir 825. I got the v 2.06 download from the router itself under the firmware. I haven't found it anywhere else but I wont do anything with it until I know what changes it makes. I have inquired with customer support but they haven't even replied as of yet. If you have the Dir 825 router you can go to your firmware section under tools and check for updates. This is how I came across this.

This is the exact info I got from my router after I checked for the latest update:

FIRMWARE INFORMATION
Current Firmware Version :   2.05NA
Current Firmware Date :   15, Feb, 2011
Check Online Now for Latest Firmware Version :

CHECK LATEST FIRMWARE VERSION
Latest Firmware Version    02.06
Latest Firmware Date    2011-8-4
Available Download Site - Global

I tried your method and I also see a 2.06 but nothing on the website. Mistake maybe?

OK, now we are on the same page.

I always like to see the release notes
before running up a new firmware.

Confident D-Link support will figure
this out - they always do. Hey, it's
why we use the "good stuff" - right
Ladies and Gentlemen?

Kudos to Vesh for being observant.

I finally got a reply from Cust Sup. Here is a quote from their response.

"This firmware has not been released yet. Once it becomes official we will have release notes for it. However where did you download the firmware from?"

Just goes to show they don't know squat about their own products. Sort of sad.

So we will just have to wait and see what its all about. Thanks for the confirmation guys. Guess our routers are smarter then Customer Support.    ::)

It's always not recommended to update to the latest and greatest anyways. Are you having problems with your router?

Take it easy on 'em Vesh! Just stop and consider
how many products they support. Put yourself in their
place and imagine what it must be like to keep up
with every change on each product. AND the R&D Dept.
is constantly adding new ones.

Sheeeesh! It's no job I would want to tackle.

Just went into my D-Link Dir-825 and checked the latest firmware and v2.06 appeared and downloaded too.

[EDIT] Works flawlessly. IPv6 seems to be enabled by default, but I could be wrong on that.

I'll see when I get home today. I asked DLink about it. Will see if they say anything.  ;)

I did get a reply back from C/S in regards to 2.06. They did confirm that it did in fact exist but did not have the info themselves. I was told by the person that if they didn't post anything on the site by this week, they would send me the info about the latest version. In which case if I get it before its on the site, I will share it here for all as well.

Just had my B1 router itself check for FW updates and it reported this:
Current Firmware Version : 2.05NA  
Current Firmware Date : 15, Feb, 2011  
Check Online Now for Latest Firmware Version :        
This firmware is the latest version.

Wonder if I missed it.   :-\

This was availible through the update on the router itself, not on the Dlink sight yet.
I did download, but will wait for more results before doing the dirty deed. ;D

I recommend leaving the router at it's current FW version on less it's experiencing problems then only after you trouble shoot the problems. Not all FW can fix problems.
