DI-604 - Broadband Router
I’m curious to know whether you ever used mIRC with that router?, and experienced unusual anomaly regarding sending files via “/DCC send <Nickname>”, reason I ask because mine has a design flaw where it blocks final step in a TCP three-way handshake (Incoming TCP packet with ACK flag set).
I posted more information at http://www.fluxgfx.com/ssc/showthread.php?t=38
I’m hoping to find out if others have noticed problems of the sort…
Haven't used Mirc, sorry.
Wow, Good write up, very interesting, I've got it bookmarked for reference.
I do use mIRC, however I haven't ever sent file, So sorry I can't answer your question. ... <Snipped> by dog ~ I admit to nothing~ and as the message has been read, it has been removed.
I bookmarked it under life stories
This problem exists with other clients but it is so very noticeable with mIRC when File Send, when File Sender sends send request, this information goes over IRC server along with IP and Ports info so if the other accepts file the File Receiver client uses that information been giving to make the TCP initiation connection to the File Sender. The final step in TCP three-way handshake gets filtered, even though you set on DMZ which is suppose to not filter anything on DMZ, but even more you can have NAT firewall off, SPI off and any other filtering features on the Router OFF and this happens just the same…
If you or anyone does have the opportunity and are curious to know if your D-Link model is affected, I don’t mind assisting by receiving a file. I’m just as curious to know how many D-Link models has this design flaw so I can keep a record for public viewing…
DI-614+ Rev. B. Wireless Router
DI-604 - it never gave me a day of trouble.
I'm thinking of replacing it with a DI-824VUP because I now have a ThinkPad R50p that can handle wireless... AND I really want to be able to print without the bother of switching on the workstation. (Well, the security looks good too.) OH, right! I would like a USB connection for the printer, an HP Deskjet 6540.
Anybody have experience with this model router?
I'll be connecting two, sometimes three notebooks, two of them running XP Pro. The other notebook and the workstation run W2K. The TP R50p is the only one which will use a wireless connection.
One other comment: The location is a very old building with fairly thick (real) plaster and lathe walls with a tiled bathroomand a TV - not in the same room - between the location of the router and where I usually use the TP. The distance is about 20' feet.
DI-604..... i use it for xbox live
DI624, works perfect. I have installed many of them without a single issue and now that they have the DI624M it has even greater distance and performance.
If anyone is looking for a wireless router then definitely buy the M model with the latest MIMO technology, it's worth it.
