Hello , we currently have a Network Management Center ticket open to address these concerns. This situation may effect some of our HN7000 users. As soon as we have an update I will post here in the community. I'm sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience. Sara
From all the posts looks like it affects more than just the HN7000s users but it is a start.
Just got back home about a hour ago and am now backing up all my steam games in case i loose those again for the hundredth time. I noticed this website was disabled, it showed a 504 gateway error and while that was occuring i seen that my skype went offline and then came back on every little bit so something is certainly up and not working too well. -- HT1000/ 1 watt/ Power Max plan/ 4 pc's on a D-Link wired router/ wireless D-Link router with password Support only the gaming company's that matter the most, pay for something that actually is worth buying or has a good reason for how much it's worth.
