DIR-895L FORUM USER REQUESTS and BUGS
« on: January 25, 2016, 06:58:56 PM »

This thread is in regards to what users would like to request DLink to review and consider adding features to the routers FW and operation. Also this thread includes any reports of bugs that are re-producible, that should be reviewed by DLink seen bythat should be reviewed by DLink seen by us users. Please be detailed, concise and tactful when posting the requests and bug details.

Do not arbitrarily post defects or bugs here. Before reporting concerns about defects or bugs, please ensure that troubleshooting of the problem has been thoroughly completed before posting a problem about defects. Not all issues are a defect or bug related. Let other users help you troubleshoot the problem first before posting here. Post your initial concerns or problems in the forums first before posting here. Many issues seen are not bugs. Inappropriate content will be removed.

Demanding anything will not get us anything. There are no guarantees.

Please keep other subjects, topics and questions to other threads and posts. This thread is just a central list of Features and Bugs for review by DLink.

If you like, you can PM me your list and details and I will add them to a list I've started here.  ;)


FEATURE REQUESTS:
Example: 1. Add router web page timeout options. (Would help to disable this when working with users in making operations in a slow manor or for those who like to keep the routers page open there browsers for a long period of time.)

BUGS:
Example: 1. At 24 MAC entries it said "You cannot add more rules because the table is full. " Need to find out if this is a defect if other rules are not set up in the pool or if there is an actual limitation on setting up the amount of MAC entries you can have.

FYI, for now AP mode is only supported on the 895L. Actual Extender mode will be forth coming in a future FW release.
Same thing for the 885L model router.

Please be patient.  D-Link is working on it.

I was unaware the DIR-895L (firmware 1.00) supported AP mode. I know it can be in router mode, but I haven't been able to put it in AP (only) mode. Regarding the repeater, I just wanted to make sure it was on the list of things to be added (aka requested functionality).

Is there a drop down menu for modes under Internet Settings?

Yes, D-Link is aware of the extender mode feature problems and is working on it.

There is not a drop down to switch modes, a la other dir (890l) models. I've verified this is, unfortunately, the same for firmware beta 1.02 build 4.

Ok so the extender switch is the mode selector then. So use wired AP mode method for now. D-Link is working on the fix. Please be patient.  ;)

The physical selector switch is only to toggle from router to repeater modes (when supported by firmware). What I'm requesting is a separate AP mode where no SPI/DHCP are being run, just the WiFi endpoints, the LAN ports are available; similar to functionality provided by the DIR-890L. I already have a pfSense firewall, I need the DIR\-895L to act as an AP only. Unless I'm mistaken and that's what the "Repeater" switch toggle will do--which seems like an incorrect name, but I digress. :-)

I don't think the 895 will have actual AP mode since it's headed to supporting extender mode.

For now, use this method: Turning a router into an AP.

BUGS: v1.11 B04
1. Reservation Limit warning still displays after disabling some reservations under the limit of 24 devices. Renaming device names still fails.
"The issue is the same on Microsoft Edge (ver 25 on Windows 10), Firefox (just downloaded current version), and Chrome (ver 52).
All three browsers report 25 total devices connected, 13 of which have IP RESERVATION enabled.  On certain devices (one Samsung tab, one Samsung phone, and a NIXPLAY device (shows pictures from the NIXPLAY cloud) I cannot rename them, enable IP RESERVATION, or even take the one out of PARENTAL CONTROL enabled status and activate it again.  In every case--trying to rename, set IP RESERVATION, or disable PARENTAL CONTROL, I get the same message: "The maximum number of permitted DHCP reservations has been exceeded."  Maybe related to having exceeded the the magic number 24 -- total devices connected, not IP reserved (which is only 13)"
http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=65312.msg272656#msg272656

2. Extender mode feature not working as intended:
http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=64304.msg265517#msg265517

3. Guest Zone not working correctly:
"One more quirk. I set up a GUEST ZONE network then disabled it.  The router continued to advertise the SSID on 5GHz, so I tried to select it from my cellphone which said it was disabled.  I resolved that issue by renaming the GUEST ZONE network, but leaving it disabled (without enabling it even for a short while.)

4. UPDATE: 10/12/2016
Seems that a wireless issue seen is due to a defect in the Broadcom chipset. Issue effects D-Link and other router Mfrs as well. All newer DIR series routers using Broadcom chip sets are effected. D-Link is working with Broadcom on this issue to correct it.

Please be patient.

FEATURE REQUESTS:
1. Wireless Repeater/Bridge mode (not just ethernet bridge)   i.e.: My primary & secondary router both are 3 band.  I would like to use one of the two 5GHz bands as a dedicated wireless repeater & then use the other two bands to transmit the normal 2.4 & 5G signals.  I currently have my primary connected to an older 1750 class router set up in media mode & sending a LAN line to my 895L in repeater mode which then transmits the wifi signal.  I would like to remove the 1750 class router from my structure.

2. AFP & NFS support (OS X users still struggle with apple's poor support of SMB)

3. Allow more IPs to be assigned with DHCP.  I have 36 network devices with smart devices included now.  Currently, another router has to manage the IPs.
