Normal packaging, overall design outlook normal like any other tranditional router, plastic material with some glossy feel on top area, doesn't feel heavy though, antenna flat shape design rather unusual not too bad looking, lots of ventilation holes especially at the back which can easily see the board smile

D-Link's new firmware design outlook is clean and easy to setup, just choose UniFi-PPPoE and setup accordingly, internet (Vlan500), IPTV (Vlan600) and IPv6 works out of the box without any issue.

However, the new firmware still need to improve further on some area like the QoS feature and the DDNS support, still no support for No-IP.com frown
