DG834Gv3/4.01.27 - SMTP sending email / IM Ports (Click here for support Page)

  • There is a HIGHLY annoying bug in the 4.01.27 version of the DG834Gv3 firmware.

    The symptoms are a SMTP server that disconnects itself when sending large(-ish) files.

    Opening the IM ports fixes the problem.
