There is a new firmware relseased : Firmware Version : 1.07SHC
Though you cannot find it in dlink Singapore websites, however if you go to your router page, under Tools -> Firmware, click on the "Check Now" button and you be able to download it.

Good Luck and Merry Christmas
I thought the latest firmware is 1.10 liao, and it was released April 2015 already.

1.10 is the standard D-Link version.
those with SHC suffix are the ones that come with Starhub-provided routers.

Thank you for your kind heads up.

Whats the news on the new firmware version? Any report on improvements/benefits?

DLink Singapore should really learn how to provide release notes.

I ran a random google search and it came up with this....
http://www.dlink.com.sg/starhub/

I didn't even know there was a dedicated Dlink Starhub page.

In the ZIP download, there is a release note, which states;

Release Note FW 1.07

Enahanced Security on on admin login: WIFI default password as Router WEB GUI admin login password after factory reset


For FW 1.03 upgrade to FW 1.07, please do a factory reset after the upgrade. Take note that all configuration will be lost after factory reset

DLink Singapore should really learn how to provide release notes.
For some reason, DLink APAC doesn't want to provide Tech Updates wrt to security vulnerabilities in their routers and IP webcams, compared with the US and UK.

One of the biggest security issues with the DIR series is the implementation of HNAP. One short article here for background: Turn off remote admin, SOHOpeless D-Link owners.

On the bright side, after being flamed many times over the past years they finally have said this: "As part of ongoing efforts to enhance security for our customers, future D-Link products will not include the HNAP protocol stack."

Those who are on the standard/worldwide version, i.e. without the SHC suffix, you might want to check with DLink if ver 1.10 is vulnerable. FW ver 1.12 has been released in UK and US to patch the security hole.

Advisories:
DLink USA
DLink UK

Most likely BUT only StarHub can confirm... the updated firmware at http://www.dlink.com.sg/starhub/ indicates A1 in the filename so we can only deduce.

If really curious can call 1633 and ask but I predict frustration instead of an answer would come from there...

- Just came back from RMA CENTRE, saw that they roll back the revision from 1.07SGC back to 1.06SHC on a new set.
- I question them why aren't they updating it to the latest revision, was informed that there is some issue.
-So pls, **Do Not Update to 1.07SHC yet

Like you, I have not have any issue for the past 2 years plus.
Until lately................this issue starts to surface.
Its better to find out the root cause then blindly follow given a choice.
