I’ve been trying to use SNMP to monitor throughput on my DSL-G604T router. Since moving house I’m interested to know how much bandwidth the kids are eating with MS(bloody)N Messenger.
The DSL-G604T supports SNMP, it says so in all the sales blurb. The reality is that whilst it has the functionality built in, it’s not possible to use it without the very latest firmware which it turns out is only available from the Australian Website. This firmware is a one-way upgrade and it’s very unclear whether it will work with ADSL in the UK. I’m not even going to risk trying it and I doubt anyone else of sound mind would either.
How do DLink get off with saying a product supports something like this when it clearly does not?
