DSL 2780 Router Stats.


[link to this post]
 
I've just moved to TalkTalk and they have sent me a D-Link DSL 2780.
Everything is working fine - except I can't find where to access the router stats (looking particularly for the SNR).
The obvious place would be from the router software -> advanced -> status -> Statistics.
But there is nothing behind the statistics tab (protocol unknown, type unknown, URL javascript : st.stat(); )
I have firmware V1.13 and Hardware A2.

Am I making a basic schoolboy error and looking in the wrong place or do I have a problem ?
Any help would be much appreciated.

Sounds like a bug in the firmware code for the Web GUI. You shouldn't be seeing msgs like that.

You are accessing router via your browser?

Looks like it needs a re-flash of its firmware or a newer version.

EDIT: Do you mean a DSL-2740R? No 2780 listed in DLink site but a DSL-2740R that has a v 1.13 f/w and also a v 1.16 later one.

XRaySpeX -

OK, thanks for the response.

Your comment about browsers triggered a belated thought.

I use IE9 (don't laugh) and had tried every combination of compatibility mode with no luck.

I've just tried it in Firefox and guess what - I can now see all the stats.

Every picture tells a story !!

Thanks again.

Did you disable all the add-ons in IE?

Everything seems to be disabled.

I'll get in touch with TalkTalk and see if they have any bright ideas - and continue to use Firefox in the mean time.

Cheers.

It's a bit sad if TT supply a router and can't tell you which is the latest driver and where to get it.

Trouble is, ISP-supplied routers sometimes have non-standard firmwares. I don't know if that means non-standard drivers as well.

Have you tried this D-Link page?

cheers for the link, recommended that my drivers need updating but now the app wants payment before updating!

Main ones are

Atheros ar5007 wifi adapter
NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000mps

had a google and installed on or two of them but still no luck so far

If you want to get any sense out of TT, join their Customer Forums, they have a section for broadband problems that is monitored by their OCE's - very helpful.

TT's customer services help desk told my that 3.1 Mbps was the fastest I could go - working with the OCE's I got it up to 3.9 Mbps.

Why the need for drivers for a router? It only connects by Ethernet/Network Card which will have its own drivers. Router should only need up-to-date firmware.
