Is rebooting required when setting changed
« on: January 20, 2015, 09:07:32 PM »

I am planning to replace DIR-655 with a new router, hence this question:Does DIR-880L require rebooting when the configuration is changed as is the case with DIR-655?

Some features require a reboot. Some take a full reboot and some only take 20 seconds. Most D-Link routers need a reboot when changing certain features. Reserving IP addresses doesn't need a reboot on the 880L. Changing Wifi settings only takes 10 seconds.
