    Just as I was about to order a DSL-504 I find it's been
    replaced with a DSL-504T.
    Being a newbie I am now even more confused comparing the
    specs of the 2 units. The 'T' is cheaper but anyone know how
    it compares with the older model ?
    At the moment there are stocks of both units.

    As far as I can see it has more or less the same capabilities of the old
    DSL-504, which I have.

    Last I heard (a few weeks ago) there was an issue with the 504T whereby it
    could only handle a maximum of 32chars for the connection username.
    Apparently, this is/was causing a lot of problems for Virgin net users
    (amongst others) who had really long usernames (>40chars).
    I'd expect that D-Link would release a fix for this sharpish, as it's rather
    a show-stopper!
    Can't believe they never found that in testing. Shame on them.

    Other than that, it's an updated 504.

  5. Hmmm...

    Helpful, but a bit late in the day on 25-Apr-04. See for example:
    <http://www.expansys.com/forumthread.asp?code=110629&thread=1&man=D-
    LIN>

    And yes there is new firmware. According to the (v. brief!) release
    notes it fixes the problem. Download it from:
    <ftp://ftp.dlink.co.uk/dsl_routers_modems/dsl-504t/>

    Hope this helps

    Well, my username and password aren't longer than 32 characters... :)

  7. There's updated firmware on the D-Link ftp site for both the DSL-
    G604T and DSL-504T (and the DSL-300T ADSL modem - seems like they
    released updated firmware for several T series products at the same
    time). Find it via:
    <ftp://ftp.dlink.co.uk/dsl_routers_modems/>

    Hope this helps
