DD-WRT
« on: December 14, 2017, 11:34:29 AM »

Has anyone installed DD-WRT on a DIR-890L?

What was your experience?

Thanks.

I was running DD-WRT for several months.   There are many firmwares which do not work properly.  They will load fine but many features will not work.  If you want to install it there is a thread on the DD-WRT forums with a discussion on which firmwares will work.   I am back to D-Links firmware now simply because it is working fine and I don't need all the extra DD-WRT features right now.  I can't remember which DD-WRT firmware I was running but it was stable and everything was working.  I am sure the version is in the thread over there.

Thanks for the feed back. I still have WRT loaded on my 890L. All information is included in the link provided. All versions are working included recent versions.
Users are encouraged to review information on the DD-WRT site and post on there forums as well.

Good Luck.

Right now with the last hacked garbage "anti DD-WRT firmware" from D-Link "1.20" it is impossible to load anything except the stock 1.20 firmware.

I tried several times to get into emergency firmware load page but nothing works, not even 30-30-30 method. Extremely frustrating that this untested garbage firmware is pushed onto us, blocking dd-wrt / any other firmware.

The only reason I was stupid enough to buy D-link routers is for the out of the box dd-wrt capability to fix the broken D-Link firmware problems.

I would review this:
http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=72749.msg292110#msg292110

I have WRT loaded on mine. Working great. You just have to downgrade from v1.20 to v1.11 is all. Then apply WRT.

WRT is not broken on the 890L. There was reported WRT FW issues which were documented over on there forum which is there domain. Those issues where fixed. If you need more help and information regarding DD-WRT, you'll need to post there.

Thank you kindly, I have tried over 18 times to downgrade to 1.11 but it refuses to accept this firmware, downloaded again and again it refused to upload and complete the process, IE, Chrome, Firefox, Palemoon, on win 10 / OSX same results. Always stays stuck on 1.20

After firmware upload of 1.11 it ends up on a empty page http://192.168.100.1/fwupload.cgi and 10 minutes later nothing, Emergency firmware mode refuses to open up on 192.168.0.1 / 192.168.1.1 and never shows up, not even as mentioned above with 30/30/30

Any idea if they uploaded garbage firmware versions after 30 Jan 2018 - today vs original last years firmware ?

Using DIR-890L_REVA_FIRMWARE_PATCH_v1.20B01orrignal inside zip file creation date 2017-10-06 possibly 6 Oct 2017 date ?

68 times factory reset, cable unplug up to 30 mins at a time ....

Stood on my head and chanted like a American Indian doing some Spiritual ritual, nothing worked.

Only did not get a priest to remove the demons form this dir-890l + 1.20 firmware :-(

Be sure to fully read the FAQ on Recovery mode. You need to set a static IP address ON a WIRED lan cable connected PC. I use 192.168.0.49.

Best browser to use is IE11 x32 for the Recovery mode. It's the 32bit version of IE. Can be found on Windows 10 as well. It's worked for me. Can try FF ESR x32bit version as well. I was able to revert back to v1.11 on mine then get WRT loaded successfully.

Do not use 30/30/30 as it's not supported on D-Link routers.

Then follow the DD-WRT FAQ I linked you to. It works.
