D-Link DSL-G604T wireless ADSL router

At home, I use this D-Link DSL-G604T wireless ADSL router to access the Streamyx ADSL service and connect to the Internet. By the time I bought this ADSL router, the D-Link DSL-2640T model wasn't available in the market yet.

I heard that this DSL-G604T ADSL router with earlier version of firmware was having some connection stability problem, but I never encountered such problem, and I have upgraded its firmware to version V1.00B02T02.MA.20050303, which is pretty stable.

This is an all-in-one ADSL router, with the following built-in functions:

  • 4-port 100Mbps Ethernet switch
  • 54Mbps 802.11g wireless access point which supports both WEP and WPA encryption
  • DHCP server
  • NAT
  • UPnP
  • DMZ
  • Virtual server
  • basic firewall
  • NTP client
  • Dynamic DNS
  • SNMP
  • Web GUI interface and also text based SSH/telnet interface for administration

My PC is directly connected to its LAN port, and my laptop can get connected anywhere in the house via its wireless access. I protect this ADSL router from surge and lightning with the Belkin SurgeMaster.
