IPv4 rules?  ???Please explain...


Under the firewall section IPv4 rules, there is an option to set rules you give the rule a name (no spaces in name allowed in 1.03 and above), set the LAN ip range that you want to control access of and the WAN ip or range you want to allow or deny access to. Set the port range then select the schedule, the default schedule is Always Enable unless you have set up others in the Time & Schedule section. In FW1.02 all Time Schedules have to follow 1,2,3,4...etc naming, in 1.03 and above you  can use real names like school, holidays etc. In FW 1.02 you can only have 2 on/off times per day, in FW 1.03 and above you can have up to 12 on/off per day (on for an hour off for an hour repeated). In FW 1.02 when I setup said rule to allow access twice a day for a certain range of ips it functions correctly by allowing access then denying it when it should. Example, I have this setup so when the kids friends come over all they need is the password, they have the same access as the kids. So for sleep overs etc they won't have access when they are meant to be sleeping the router does this automatically without me having to do a thing. In FW 1.03 and above I have to go into the router and use Parental Controls once that child has connected and assign the schedule I want them to have access by, the firewall rules no longer have any effect.

So there have been improvements in the creating of schedules but these schedules (except Always Allow) no longer work with the IPv4 (firewall) rules but they do work for individual nodes via Parental Controls

OK worked this one out myself, simple fix, don't know why I didn't try it earlier, recreate all your firewall rules in reverse, so instead of LAN address 1st do WAN then put the LAN address in the 2nd box instead of the 1st. I would say the code for this function must of been "tweaked" maybe it was incorrect in the earlier fw's but it looks like it is working as it should now...:P

Glad you figured it out.

Can you post a screen capture of what your rules look like for future users?

Thank you for the information.  ;)

I will throw something together when I get a chance... ;)

lol...had some spare time now...

Fairly self explanatory..In this example of an IPv4 rule it is disabling internet access to the LAN ips listed (including WiFi) all other LAN ips still have access to the internet. The blocked ips will have internet access as defined by the schedule "School" 



This is the schedule that is applied to that rule, the white areas are the times access is allowed

Is everything this is not port-forwarded blocked by default?

I have a new 880L on order. I don't know what firmware version it will contain so in case I need to update it I was looking at the available updates. I am a little confused about the designations for firmware updates.

1. There appears to be two types of firmware updates: security "patches" and "regular updates".  Is the "patch" not a full firmware update but just an overlay of part of the existing firmware? In this case if you have old firmware, you would have to update the full firmware with the regular update first and then update that with the "patch"?

2. A "WW" area patch applies to everyone but the "full" update is specific to a particular area (in my case it would be North America)?

3. This site has referenced a v1.03 security patch. This appears to have been superseded by v1.04 which came out a few days later?

Thanks,

WW is for World Wide and can be applicable to the NA region if D-Link didn't post a specific FW file for the NA region. WW is safe to use.

3. This site has referenced a v1.03 security patch. This appears to have been superseded by v1.04 which came out a few days later?
Yes, please use the most recent version of FW.

Thanks FurryNutz,

  I have used D-Link Routers for many years. I have had my current DIR-655 for about 7 years. I had an old DI-604 for I can't remember how long. They never gave me a bit of trouble. I hope the DIR-880L will follow in the footsteps of these two.

I hope you will enjoy it as mush as I do. Just be aware that the UI is different from the 655 and some of the additional advanced features you see on the 655 will not be on the 880L.  ::)

Let us know how it goes when you get it.  ;)

 I have been reading a lot of the complaints people have had regarding the new UI and was a little leery of going to it as it seemed to have eliminated some nice features. But I have very few special settings in my current router. In comparing what I have to what the new UI will give you, I think I will be ok. Maybe in future firmware updates some of the previous functions will be restored.

OK.

What features to I lose by "upgrading" from my 655 to the 880L ?

Some logging, adavanced configurations of WiFi and networking and some advanced features that were now being handled automatically.

You can upgrade to any "patch" FW. Security FW is full FW releases with just immediate security fixes. They may or may not included any feature fixes. Mainly just security fixes.
2. WW is for World Wide ...  WW is safe to use.
3. Yes, please use the most recent version of FW.
Just confirming,

Aus firmware is 1.01b90 which is WAY out of date.
http://support.dlink.com.au/Download/download.aspx?product=DIR-880L&type=Firmware

Main site shows 1.04b01 WW
http://support.dlink.com/ProductInfo.aspx?m=DIR-880L
DIR-880_REVA_FIRMWARE_PATCH_1.04.B01_WW.ZIP

Providing I can un-brick my 880L (suggestions welcomed, it's deader than a flat cat on a road), I can flash to 1.04b01 WW ?
