According to a account by D-Link, firmware updates for its DIR-635 (HW-Revision B), DIR-655 (HW-Revision A1-A4) and DIR-855 (HW-Revision A2) router models are now accessible to download to abutting the recently discovered hole in the Home Network Administration Protocol (HNAP) of these devices.


D-Link say they have also discovered issues with the discontinued DIR-615 (HW-Revision B1-B3), DI-634M (HW-Revision B1) and DIR-635 (HW-Revision A) models. A firmware update for the DIR-615 has been released, with updates for the DI-653-M and DIR-635 to follow in the coming weeks.


The updated firmware is available from www.dlink.de currently and will be available on the www.dlink.co.uk site within the next few days.


Last week, the SourceSec website reported that, aside from offering regular administrator access, the DI-524, DIR-628, DIR-655 and potentially further D-Link router models have a permanent HNAP connection which can be exploited by attackers.


According to a statement (german language link) from D-Link Germany, the router models DI-304, DI-524, DI-604, DI-624, DI-724GU, DI-804HV, DIR-100, DIR-300, DIR-301, DIR-320, DIR-600, DIR-615, DIR-685, DIR-825, DSL-2543B, DSL-2641B, DSL-2740B, DSL-2741B, DVA-G3342SD and DVA-G3342SB are not affected because they either don’t use HNAP or testing showed this protocol wasn’t accessible.

The Touch supports true dual-band capabilities, working in 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands at the simultaneously. Three data streams offer throughput speeds of up to 450Mbps when used with the same standard wireless clients. Like all Wireless-N routers, it’s also backward compatible with earlier standards (802.11a/b/g).

If the Touch is a high-end router for the savvy user, the D-Link Wireless N Pocket Router is designed as a travel companion for people on the go, and features multimode functionality. It can be used either as a wireless router to create an 802.11n Wi-Fi network anywhere one is needed, or as an access point (AP) to add Wi-Fi to an existing wired network. The device can also be used to add wireless capability to an Ethernet-ready device, such as a desktop PC or an Xbox 360.

Despite its small size, the Pocket Router also comes with a USB port and supports D-Link’s SharePort technology, which allows the router to work as an extension of a networked computer’s USB port.

Neither of the new routers from D-Link will be available until mid 2010. Their prices and other details will be revealed then.

D-Link releases new switches DES-7200

The multi-layer chassis-based Switches were successfully trialled at the Charles Darwin School in Kent, where they were praised for their high performance, support and eco-efficiency, and are now being made available on the market.

The company says that the system is ideal for schools and educational institutions as it provides core network coverage and no downtime. The manufacturers also describe it as “affordable” and “suited to the needs of larger campus locations”.

Industry standard compliance and a flexible modular architecture means the product, which can deploy Gigabit and 10-Gigabit switching, provides scalable expansion and value for money.

D-Link has previously been praised for its green credentials, and was a Venture Green exhibitor at the HealthAchieve 2009 Conference and Exhibition.

The Networking Equipment firm’s Green Ethernet Switches, aimed at schools, also seek to help them reduce their carbon footprints.
