Driver Assist performs an in-depth scan of your entire system and all devices attached to it and verifies that you have the latest and most compatible drivers installed.It determines which drivers are missing, corrupt or obsolete.
After initial setup it requires no attention and software migrated easily.
Router seems to be region-specific product so I have bit of trouble providing good official link.
Upon launching setup from CD it did three things: Fail. Only things I changed were: Firmware seemed pretty outdated so I tried to re-flash it with newer one from D-Link FTP but router had refused to update. By the way it is compatible with DD-WRT Linux based firmware so I may try to play with that some day. Phone refuses to see network but it isn’t high priority so I left it as is.
I threw CD over the shoulder, plugged router in and connected via web interface. Had slight trouble installing Skype on notebook and had to download full installer from File Hippo instead of usual online one.
UPDATE: Looks like this same bug was found earlier this year by Samuel Huntly, but only reported and patched for the DIR-645.
The patch looks pretty shitty though, so expect a follow-up post soon.
:(" I’ve tested both the v1.00 and v1.03 firmware (v1.03 being the latest at the time of this writing), and both are vulnerable.
But, as is true with most embedded vulnerabilities, this code has snuck its way into other devices as well.
I mean simple LAN plus proxy software and all is good, why bother with extra hardware lying around?
However, after purchasing notebook, ad-hoc Wi-Fi started to drive me insane fast and I gave up.
Analyzing “all the firmwares” is tedious, so I handed this bug over to our Centrifuge team at work, who have a great automated analysis system for this sort of thing.
