What is Dlink doing?
« on: July 07, 2017, 04:05:44 PM »

Its been about 17 months since the debut of this router and there have been 5 updates. This is an average of 1 update ever 3.5 months, when realistically the release schedule is like 6 months put out a update, one month later fix it with a new update, 6 months later put out a new update and a month later fix it.

This router is the top of the line for D-link and the firmware features suck compared to Asus AC5300, etc. Where is the DD-wrt support? The product page says DD-wrt support, a major reason I bought this router, and its still not supported. Why isn't d-link helping??? The dd-wrt team claim they don't have an AC5300 to test with... why can't D-link provide one, you freaking advertised support of DD-wrt to win people like me.

This router has been nothing but trouble. This is my first D-link purchase, which came highly recommended, but honestly... it'll probably be my last.

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under the router case.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

What problems are you having with it?

It's not D-Link responsible to send HW to 3rd party developers. D-Link only provides the OpenSource code (GPL) for 3rd party developers to build on. If 3rd party developers want to develop open source code and test, there the ones who have to buy the HW. Not all developers may want to  develop every model router. However looking at DD-WRT, there IS DD-WRT FW for the DIR-895L.
