Default NEW Firmware 1.0.1.6

New firmware version 1.0.1.6 available on NetGear WNDR4500 support website. I flashed it a bit ago and have not found anything non-functional yet. Will continue to beat it up, but so far DDNS, Port Forwarding, etc. appear well. The issues addressed in this update is available on the site.
Speeds OK so far.

That's what my router believes too since it didn't pick it up automatically. Now we'll see if my disconnects from both WAN and LAN have been cured. They were unchanged initially with the last beta but somehow on their own they became less frequent.

It has been up here with no notable problems so far. I have been seeing 65-70 meg down on my Charter 100 mb connection. This is the best I have seen since 1.0.0.70. My VPN to work stayed up for over 30 hours until I decided to disconnect. I will continue to keep track and see if this one is stable. As reported before, DDNS, Port Forwarding, WPA2 Personal /AES, and I am maintaining a 300 mbs connection, two rooms and 40 feet from the router. It also appears that the wired switch is pushing files at a faster rate across the gigabit network here. I will validate that. It is encouraging to see NetGear continuing to improve this firmware.

It would be great if anyone has information about the USB speed.

I can't help with USB, I have two D-Link DNS-323s on the network. They have gigabit connections with dual terabyte 7200 rpm drives and those are flying. But, I only have about a five year old Western Digital USB drive that belongs to my wife....don't even know if this router supports it. I see there is a list of supported drives on the website, I will take a look.

As mentioned before, if the 4500 is anything like the 3700, for faster USB transfers you'll want to use FAT32 or Ext2/3 and as a last resort, NTFS.

Thanks I am going to try it this weekend.

Is there an explenation why the speed has to be so bad (7 Megabytes/s filetransfer, 4 MB/s sabnzb)?

I was thinking about buying an NAS (synologic) but in a forum they mention that you have to pay a lot to get a good download speed (sabnzb @ 15 megabytes/s).

The USB seems about the same as in the last beta - about 12 MB/s in my case.

This was a USB 1 TB WD drive 2.0 device.

If you are referring to poor NTFS speeds, it's my understanding that in order for the router to obtain faster speeds using the NTFS File System, Netgear would have to buy a license. What Netgear uses is basically the free, unoptimized, version.

I'm also considering purchasing my first NAS, a Synology DS411+II or similar. Right now the project is on hold as I'm waiting for hard drive prices to return to pre-flood levels. As for speed of the NAS, there are a lot of factors involved, price is definitely one of them.
