Title: stuck on version 1.0.2
Post by: Orhay on September 25, 2019, 11:37:02 AM
Hi
i just bought a DIR-882 and every where i look online the gui is different from mine.
when i look at my firmware version it says 1.0.2 which i cannot find under the download section of my router.
i would like to have the same interface that i see on the forum and also be able to setup a vpn

if it helps this is my gui

What country are you in/did you buy this router from?

Once you log in can you type http://dlinkrouter.local./version.txt and tell me the exact firmware version.

I have never seen that interface. 

Try the LAN IP address of the router (the IP you use to log into it with version.txt) - 192.168.0.1/version.txt

Is this a retail bought router or something you got from an ISP?
This UI is not the same as we see here in the USA as seen here:

I recommend that you phone contact your regional D-Link support office and ask for help and information regarding this. Each region of D-Link does things differently and maybe handling your region differently from others.  I would talk to someone there first to find out.

We find that phone contact has better immediate results over using email.
Let us know how it goes please.

I believe the FW is different from here in the USA.

Please make contact with your regional D-Link office and check on this. Let us know how it goes.

well no luck
they send me a bin file that i used to update it did update my router to 1.0.3 but the interface is the same and i cannot find a way to enable vpn.
i would love to ditch that interface so i can get rid of a lot of stuff like the yandex dns that i do not need

i also found the specs of my router in the regional site

Is VPN something they support on this router? Something to talk to them about.

well under the specs it does say VPN

VPN
IPsec/PPTP/L2TP/PPPoE pass-through
IPsec tunnels

I would talk to the regional support office to see if they can help you with VPN. Maybe just a configuration with the router to make it work.

It seems that this earlier possibly client specific version of the firmware does have some additional features not present in the global firmware version :

If it is indeed the A1 hardware revision of the hardware you should be able to brute force (at your own risc of course) the firmware upgrade by going into the recovery boot-loader and uploading the .bin file from there or going through a DDWRT firmware and back to official DLink firmware if the first option doesn't work (you'll find instructions threads on both options in this forum).

Revision R1 is a Russian sku and will have it's own firmware. The US (North America) or WW (world wide) firmware most likely will not work even when performing a crash recovery / emergency recovery.
