Thanks for the heads up, did the update earlier but haven't had a chance to check out the new features (if any). I did mess around with Shareport a bit from the previous firmware but never really found a use for it. I've actually got my eye on the DIR-825 (want the dual band wireless) but since my 655 has been rock solid I really have no immediate need to upgrade.

re: SharePort

I am curious, can you attach a usb hub and have multiple usb devices?

Honestly, I'm not certain. I use it with a standard (non ip) multifunction printer/fax/scanner and have a wired and 3 wireless laptops that share access to it with no issues. Well - I was until I did the new firmware and Shareport stopped working.


TRIBE Member
hmm things are working fine to be honest im just gonna leave it be.

THanks for the update though!

I upgraded to the new firmware on Monday and all is well here. Better actually with sme of the streaming I do.

I don't use Shareport though.

Flashed yesterday. A2 over here, no Shareport. Solid as always.

Vise, I want the new one too! But the damn thing is so solid, I don't have a reason to get rid of it......... yet :p

Yeah, unless some serious advantages to the upgrade arise, I'm going to leave my firmware as is. I've had zero issues with this thing.
