His is working fine. Don't wanna mess it up. 8)

This is for a security fix but was curious if the NAT issue is there.

Ya, I won't be able to test. Router was handed off to my bro in law for his new place.

Why I'm hoping Twisted won't mind trying it for us.  :-\

Original plan was to give him the 878 however I had not been to his place to check it out until the day he had the cable internet guy come over and get his Internet setup. So the COVR was back up if I though the house as bigger than I expected. We placed the modem and 878 in the living room which is central to the house so he should have good coverage. I need to go back and test signal strength around the out side as he was some wifi outside.  ::)

I haven't heard any complaints from him.  ;D  Yet.  :-\

Furry, I have a beta firmware (1.20B03) if you wanna try it.

ftp://FTP2.DLINK.COM/SECURITY_ADVISEMENTS/DIR-878/REVA/DIR_878_FWV120B03_Beta_for_Security_20190223.zip

I'm tempted to try this. Ipv6 is funky with ISP in Canada (Rogers).

What does this have different than the regular 1.12b01?

I am not sure other than a security fix. I have not received the release notes.

You can give this a try and if nothing works for you, you can revert back.

I would keep in touch with D-Link Canada about your IPv6 issue.

Let us know in your other thread if this beta worked or not.

Thank you.

Hey FurryNutz & Greenbay
How are you guys doing? Sorry for the long long absence.
Just thought i'd share something with you. I had some time to kill today and just randomly thought of checking the router fw page for a new fw. It showed v1.2 as available to update.
I looked up the dlink fw downloads page Greenbay had posted in this thread somewhere and that repository doesn't list 1.2 at all...
Feeling adventurous i went ahead with the online update... no factory reset done post the update.. And at first only the xbox or the ps4 pro either one would hold on to Open nat. I was about to go back to v1.10 when i decided to give one last thing a try. Rebooted the modem (the isp supplied one) and kept the router powered down until the modem established the internet link to the isp. Then powered up the 878 and now both the ps4 and xbox seem to stay on Open nat.
Early days i know...knowing my luck with these fw upgrades. I'll check back tomorrow evening to see if 15-18 hours makes any difference.
Will post back :D

Glad to hear. My 878 last time I tested it was OPEN NAT. THought seem to be a process in testing it all out. The v1.10 was working for me before I handed it off ot my bro in law for his main router. He's happy however he's not a gamer. LOL.

Thank you for coming back and posting your experiences with v1.20. We need to know this. Sounds like the 878 is solid now. I think the 878 and 882 are good solid routers now for gaming. Though NAT kind will impact two or more game consoles being online at the same time playing the same online MP games.  ::)

Are you using the FW file from this location?

No I just let the router update from within the router web interface.
The new fw didn't show up on the fw downloads page greenbay had shared in this thread. So maybe 1.2 is specific for Asia or India maybe.
Some nice improvements I notice.. An option to auto update new fw once a available. Some user management settings as well.
You might want to add in your knowledgebase, the new fw shows buttons in the interface only in Edge browser. Firefox and IE have the buttons hiding in plain sight lol. :D

Can do http://dlinkrouter.local./version.txt or 192.168.0.1/version.txt and see the build number and date. Please post what you see here.

The new FW is for our region and I think any region as well.

Any you please capture what your seeing in the broser Edge vs other browser?
Adding Screenshots In A Post

Would be interesting to see what is hidden from other browsers. Also please post browser versions as well.

Update : 9 hours later, both consoles latch on to open nat just fine. The ps4 boots up from completely powered off mode. The xbox from instant on and no issues.   ;)

Sounds like we can mark this as "resolved".

Enjoy.  ;)
