    I bought one of this some weeks ago. The advertising all says 'comes
    with SDK' - which it didn't. The dlink website says available on
    request, but there seems no way of requesting it. Their support contact
    is a choice of premium rate phone number, or a web page with significant
    'fiddle factor' (not least about supported browser versions and popup
    blockers: I get the definite feeling they're discouraging contact).

    Has anyone here actually obtained the SDK for this device?

    I just found what appears to be the latest source plus toolchain here:
    http://pmdap.dlink.com.tw/PMD/GetAg...160A1_FW141b01_FOSS.rar&fileSize=6.8784953E7;
    from this page
    http://tsd.dlink.com.tw/downloads2008list.asp?SourceType=download&OS=GPL

    Thanks for the links.

    Unfortunately, the second just seems to lead to a list of files with no
    download ability (if there's a link, I can't see it!!); the first (I
    can't see how you found it) starts to download the .rar file but doesn't
    seem to get far (after 10 minutes in and only 23kb downloaded, I've
    restarted on a spare machine using wget, so it can run as long as may
    be; wget has the download speed blanked out at present, so it's spending
    most time stalled).

    I've now contacted Amazon which is where I got the box. To their credit,
    I had an initial response within about an hour. Apparently they're going
    to check a box from the warehouse and get back to me. Not a lot really a
    vendor can do about this; but they might hopefully at least change their
    product description page. And maybe kick dlink for causing a problem. I
    wonder how many have actually asked for the SDK.

    Not doing too well here. After about 4hours download, I got less than
    half a megabyte, and that's all there is: the source rar file seems to
    be truncated.

    Amazon apologized for not including the 'setup cd'. Missing the entire
    point of my query.

    I'm retrying both.

    Are you running some sort of script blocker?
    It's 68MB, integrity checked OK - I'll see if I can stick it on the web
    or set up an FTP server later so you can download it.

    Not as far as I know. AdBlock+ and Ghostery, neither of which is
    affecting this page. That 2nd link gives me a page with 'GPL Source Code
    Support' near the top, a keyword search box, and a list of model numbers
    (all links). Clicking any of those takes me to a tables of files -
    'type' (all GPL src code), 'description' and 'size' (all around 50 to 70
    Mb). And a 'back' button.

    Ooooops... now I see. The lines are indeed links. When the cursor rolls
    over them they change colour to the faintest of faint off-white colours
    - didn't spot it. Although I'm /almost/ sure I tried clicking there
    earlier just on spec...... Oh well, face now a rather darker shade of
    pink :) Mind you, some of those links do point nowhere!! The latest
    version s still amazingly slow.


    ....
    Yes please. That would save me some agony. Thanks.
