Did you get a chance to test this out?

Will do.  Thanks, Furry!

Sorry!  Not yet.  I am currently down in Virginia enjoying a couple of weeks in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  I will get around to testing it out once I get back.  As soon as I run if hard for a couple of days, I will report my experience.

I want to apologize for my very late reply on this topic.  However, I do have some good results to post.  I have been using this router with the QoS mod firmware solid for a few months now on my work internet connection at home.  The connection is a 50/10 DSL Fiber connection that I regularly hammer with uploads of larger files.  This is the most stable the router has been for me.  I do still have the heatsink installed in it and it still gets quite hot.  With it being stable though, my guess is the cap D-Link has implemented in the stock firmware is at least partially to fault for the instability.  One minor note about my experience with this router whether running on the modded or stock firmware.  It clearly doesn't have the processing power to keep up with multitasking over a network. 

Thanks, Furry, for passing that on to me and thank you to the creator of the modded firmware! 

By the way, I really am liking the new forum colors and style.   :)  I just wish the buttons were slightly larger.

Glad it's working well for you.

I recommend using a Laptop cooler under the router. I found out that the heat related problems come from the Canada region only as the USA wasn't able to reproduce or exhibit this issue. Which is still funny has the HW comes from one source. Crazy.  ::)

Ya, the cap was something that was limited to the 2Mb ISPs which not sure why D-Link allowed that since on average ISP uplink speeds are well beyond that now, even at the time this was released, uplinks where beyond 2Mb.

Forum theme is still being worked on and doing some tweeking. I'll ask about making the buttons bigger.

Enjoy. ;)

In defense of D-Link, most of the newer AC routers have heat issues.  My Asus RT-AC66U had to go back for replacement as the heat killed the two USB ports on it.  They were really quick to replace it though and their RMA center was only a half hour drive. 

On screens that are 2560X1440 and higher, the buttons are a little hard to see.   :P

Ya, D-Link seems to have taken some of our concerns to heart. The newer models are sporting better heat cooling sinks now.  ::)

That is excellent to hear!  I can honestly say, I miss the UI.

That looks nice.  Is the new fat look a result of some decent cooling?

There is a large heat sink plate on the top of the board...  ::)

I tested this firmware and it works.  But the problem that I have is that my FIOS is 60Mbps/60Mbps.  And turning on this feature drops my upload speed to ~20Mbps (limit of this firmware parameter).
