Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

I read about this fiasco at the Cisco forums weeks ago and people were fuming mad about it. Apparently the auto update feature was enabled by default which caught people off guard.

If D-link did this to me I'd be tossing my router in the trash but luckily D-link has no intentions of doing something so deliberately sinister like this.

This move to the cloud is nothing more than the government spying on We The People and goes way beyond unconstitutional and it's only going to get worse. Between this cloud BS and the thousands of drones that are set to go spy on everyone and everything in this country, this is far worse than anything that George Orwell envisioned.

I'm glad I have an Airlink and not a Linksys.
