Re: [southwest] Replaced D-link Router VOD Timeout
Well, I tried all the different IP address setting (192.168.1.1nn and also 192.168.0.1nn) and there was no change. I also checked the dynamic IP assinged by the DI-604 which has always worked and it was in the 192.168.0.1nn range. All the other functions requiring the STB box to communicate with the internet still worked, but VOD timed out.
I finally pulled my head out and took a look at the log on the router and saw that I was receiving the following each time VOD tried to start playing something:
[INFO] Sun Feb 01 11:14:38 2009 RTSP ALG rejected packet from ... to ....
I did some searches on this error and the recommendation was to disable the Real Time Streaming Protocol Application Level Gateway (RTSP ALG) setting in the FIREWALL. I changed the setting and now it appears that everything is working.
It appears that this may be a issue with various D-LINK Wireless N routers (DIR-615, DIR-655, DIR-825, etc) and also other types of video streaming.
Thanks to all of you who took the time to view and respond to this post.
P.S. Router is DIR-615 revB FIRMWARE version 2.25.

Thanks for posting your findings. I'm about to implement a DIR-655 and will keep this in mind.
So put me on a highway, and show me a sign.
And take it to the limit one more time...
