A peek at the D-Link DI-604

Updated 8/2/02

As I was updating this article, D-Link issued a firmware update for their new ultra-cheap DI-604. In addition to some needed bugfixes, version 2.0f firmware adds UPnP features, making the DI-604 the most inexpensive UPnP-enabled router available. But it looks like D-Link still has some work to do.

The My Network Places icon properties screen contains information about who really makes the DI-604, as shown in Figure 12.

Figure 13 shows that the DI-604 has added some pre-made services to its automatically generated NAT-Traversal selections.

But when I tried to use the pre-made services, I kept getting a pop-up that said that the router wouldn't accept the changes. You should also note that unlike the NAT-Traversal services, the pre-sets don't have the IP address filled in. So if you just checked the box for the service you want (which you'd expect that you could do since this interface is supposed to be the port-opening-for-Dummies one), you probably wouldn't get the service... if this feature worked.
