DIR-825 B1 Port 0 and 1 show as closed, not stealth!

  1. Greetings all!!

    I have a question to pose.

    Beyond 3rd party firmware,
    is there a way to stealth port 0-1 on a
    DIR-825 B1 Port 0 and 1.
    I have owned a number of Dlink gateways,
    and I could always get the settings to stealth.
    Port 0-1 is and issue with this router for stealthing.
    any ideas?

    have owned:
    DI-634M Wireless 108G MIMO Router
    DIR-825 A1 F/W 1.01

    All have been stealthed.

    Dlink per fourms claims this is a non-issue due to
    device is not a TRUE FIREWALL.

    If a port can be found, closed or not, sooner or later
    some one is coming in on another port. :(

    Welcome to the forum with you very first post! :)

    Did you just purchased this router?
    What are you using to test to see if the port is stealth, closed, or open?

    Yes I belong to that form also. I haven't been there since my DIR-655 A3 and it's crappy firmware hasn't been the same. I also own prior DI-704 series never had issues. I had also DIR-615 A1 faster router with 500MHz Marvel NPU 32MB of RAM, but that had issues so much that Dlink India Support said we don't support A1. DIR-655 A3 not even a year before the new firmware had screwed up the router. I had enough with Dlink with routers, I use their printer servers and no issues. I own two Belkin N Plus Gig/USB Storage Wireless Routers. The specs on the Belkin is better they use the same Gig Controller Chipset with 832KB packet buffer, Belkin use Ralink N/WPU 266MHz and 32MB for RAM. I use two of these devices to manage 802.11n in an older home. WAN is very fast. I've tested it against the DIR-615 A1, DIR-655 A3 results in the WAN side is 20% quicker.

    If I was you, I would ditch (return it) the DIR-825 B1 as you know there is an issue DLINK is suppose to help you not be unhelpful. You either get Belkin N Plus or Netgear WNDR3700. Call it a day.

    I know, But I actually purchased this for IPv6

    I'm trying to see if I can to Beta for My ISP and get
    them to bond more channels to my SB6120 for
    beta testing of DOCSIS 3.0 in my area as well.

    Any other suggestions on IPv6 capable wireless

    Are the items you mentioned IPv6 capable?

    Thank you in advance.

    Same here IPV6 is what I use only on the Belkin N Plus support that right out of the box. Belkin just release 3 new wireless routers with built-in ANT. They're new so I haven't go any data on what's making them run inside. The best one has BT downloader feature that's about it.

    If you find hardware V1xx you'll have some really good to work with. V2 is all-in-on Same on the Chip deal Supposly faster, but I stuck with V1 hardware. V3 suppose to be like what Cisco L-WRT610N uses for chipset. I only see V2 now.

    Is this the new stuff?

    Play Max Wireless Router

    Looks good except no GB Cat6 ports indicated,
    but all data is not accurate or complete.
    Look at the range (0-100Mbps) lack of detail
    Does not state IPv6 support.
    Needs to be reviewed.

    Could have potential.

    Yes that's brand spanking new! Range is shorter than the prior Belkin N Plus is 1,200 square feet. Since the never released in the USA the Double Belkin N Plus (dual band version on N Plus) now you have these newer models. Before I would buy one of these newer routers I going to dig to see what on the PCB.

    Does the Play Max Wireless Router support IPv6 on the WAN side, LAN side or both.

    Repeated post, but good to know before you buy. They still sell the Belkin N+. I leaning at the Cisco Linksys E3000, but I am not leaning at the price tag of $179 for it. WAN to LAN to WAN should be 600-700mbps as that is where Gig performance is usually is. Some might hit 800mbps at a price though. 802.11n should be roughly 100mbps to 150mbps out the 300mbps chipset. Most today are 65mbps. Lots of connections cause speed to vary in that department.
