Title: DIR-878 Firmware v1.10B05 Released (Official KRACK release)
Post by: GreenBay42 on March 14, 2018, 07:29:51 AM
There are 2 firmware files to update. You must update to v1.04 (included in ZIP file), and then to 1.10. This will add encryption to the firmware file. This will prevent downgrading the firmware. If you need to downgrade, you will have to hold the reset button down, power off and then on while still holding the button down. Hold for 10 seconds after you power on the router. Log in and you will be prompted to upgrade firmware.

This version of FW is recommended for any gamers using the DIR-878. v1.11 and v1.12 are causing NAT and uPnP problems on game consoles. Any one with a DIR-878 and game on Play Station or Xbox Live, I recommend downgrading to v1.10.

Users with the DIR-878 that have not updated to v1.10 or beyond and using older FW versions, you'll need to apply the v1.04 intermediate file version first before applying v1.10. v1.04 file is included in the v1.10.zip file.

D-Link is aware of the issue and is under review for a fix. Please be patient.

Thank you.  ;)
