Title: DIR-880l DHCP
Post by: Exchangy on July 26, 2014, 09:17:00 PM
Hi everyone,
I am hoping someone might have some insight into the issue I am having with my recently purchased DIR-880L. I'm having issues with getting any of my devices to connect to this router. No matter what method I used to connect, the device attempting to connect records itself as having an ip address of 169.xxx.xx.xxx (I am aware that this is a default ip address that devices assign themselves when the dhcp server fails to assign). At the moment I have the DHCP Server on the router enabled, its set to always broadcast and Enable DNS Relay is Enbled I have tried switching these off, but it doesn't help. This issue is affecting all of my devices including laptop, pc, iphones and ipad. I can get round this issue by assign a static ip address to all of these devices but it gets a bit frustrating having to do this with each and every device that I try to connect. I've tried upgrading to firmware 1.01 but its made no difference. Interestingly I have found that if I create a guest network my devices can connect to that network and DHCP has no problems assigning IP addresses. Any thoughts anyone on what might be causing issues on my main network that is stopping DHCP from working? Thanks

3-6' feet minimum safe distance between devices.
Placement on main level floor and central in the building and WELL ventilated is preferred. Not in basements or closets as building materials, or near by electronics devices could interfere or hinder good signal propagation.

Thanks FurryNutz for the reply and welcome.
I have the DIR-880L (A1 ver) which is linked to a Billion 7800N (set in full bridge mode so as just to use the modem). The 880L has been upgraded to firmware 1.01. I have a DAP-1650 (set in access point mode), 2 PCS, 1 laptop, iphone, ipad and a couple of Dlink cameras (DCS-2332L) connected with a mixture of wifi and Ethernet.
Ok after a lot more testing and isolating of potential issues, turns out the culprit was that I had changed the default DHCP IP Address Range. Once I returned that back to the default figures (100 to 199) the auto allocation of IP Addresses started working again properly on both my wired and wireless devices. I no longer need to manual set a static IP on each device for it to connect. I've never had a problem increasing the DHCP IP range on a router before, so is this something particular to this model?
Thanks

What DCHP Pool addressing had you been using before?

What channels are the router and the DAP running on? Besure they are not running on the same channels while using AP mode...

I had tried to set the address range as 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254. With regards to the wifi channels, on the 880L they have been set as 3 and 48 whilst on the DAP-1650 they have been set as 9 and 157. I do note that I was having the DHCP issues even without the DAP being connected to the system.

I'll have to ask, however I don't think using .2 thru .254 will be supported on this model router. Can you try .2 thru .100?

Recommended channel to manually set on 2.4Ghz are 1, 6, 11. 13 if your not in the NA region. Try 48 or 149 on 5Ghz. All other channels are over lapping channels used by the router and neighbors.

What region are you located in?

Just got my DIR-880L.

Having the same issue as Exchangy here :(

I believe the issue is to do with the DHCP Reservation slider (thats already been noted as a bug). Ive upgraded to the latest firmware and done multiple tests, seems adding 1 dhcp reservation is fine but anymore the DHCP throws a wobbly and stops working completely. I tried using the default DHCP scope and changing it to my preferred one but no difference :(

Do we know when this issue is likely to be sorted? I see in the patch notes for the latest firmware it states "Fix IP reserved issue" but that doesn't seem to be the case. No matter what I do the dhcp cuts out after reserving IP's

EDIT: So after some fiddling I decided to go back to my DIR655 until the issue is fixed, bit of a shame as the router is a great bit of kit let down by a silly bug (also noticed this happened with another one I had to take back)

Its a DIR880L HW:A1 FW:1.01

Not had any issues with the DIR 655 with this setup, basically just unplugged the 655 and plugged this in and configured.

The issue seems to be with the DHCP server itself after you assign a few reserved IP's.

Ive managed to install wireshark and watch the network for DHCP requests and for the first 6 or so IP's i see a constant release, Discover, Offer, Request, ACK and both devices (wired and wireless) pick IP's up. I then changed the IP's to something constant (192.168.100.111 - 114) and reserved them while adding my phone into the action and the DHCP server cr**s out. Devices send out discover packets and the DHCP server ignores them completly, only way to get it back is to factory reset.

UPDATE1: Ok so went back to testing and factory reset and unplugged the modem from the router (so only local lan now) just to check if it was conflicting or something. Factory reset and could see the dhcp assigning IP's again (great!), so add about 4 devices (PC, Laptop, phone and TV), assign them reserved IP's and reboot the router (several times). I then start renewing the IP on the PC and laptop to watch the DHCP requests on wireshark... everything fine :)

So start adding all the extra devices (VM's, servers xbox etc) get to about 8 devices, still watching dhcp requests fly about and changing IP's to within the correct range 100 - 199 (just going up 1 every time to test). Suddenly constant DHCP Discover requests over and over :(

So in conclusion so far:
 - Nothing to do with the internet (configured for static IP on a different ip range just to have something there, also tried dhcp)
 - Seems to work fine without any dhcp reservation (haven't tried it for long as its not how I'm going to use it)
 - DHCP seems to work for 15minutes and then gives up :(

I remember having the same issue on a DIR-685 that I had to send back as well :(

Have submitted a support request to see what support say but may have to send it back and stick with the 655 till things are fixed.

I recommend that you phone contact your regional D-Link support office and ask for help and information regarding this. We find that phone contact has better immediate results over using email.
Let us know how it goes please.

Please detail us your device list. What are these Servers as well. You might retest and start from what the last device you added was to be sure and add that one first.

I'll pass this along to my local office here and see if they have any info. I'll have my buddy who has my 880L on loan to check on this for me as well.

Hi Furry,

Located in the UK, so region is EU.

I've raised a support ticket with Dlink who's escalated to 2nd line (not sure if that's any good or not?)

The servers are basically just VM's running on a HP Microserver (2 x Nas4Free and 1 x Win 7 box running media streamers etc).

Will wait to see what dlink support says and give them a call if I hear nothing by Friday, really don't want to send it back but could be a fault with the box. :(

So after having it for a few days seems that the DHCP issue is defiantly resolved in 1.2.

DHCP is assigning all the IP's to the various devices each time they connect :)

Only thing I would like is a list of the reserved IP's (like the lists for firewall rules), just so you dont have to click to check each one :)

I also am having big issues with the DHCP server on the DIR-880.  I sent the email below to DLink support on Sept 5th (one week ago) and have received no response at all.  This is unlike them since tech support for my old DIR-655 support has been great, even years after I bought it.  Maybe they simply have no answers yet?

Here is a copy of what I sent to support.  I've edited the message below for clarity since I sent it to them.  Is anyone else seeing the same things?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It seems impossible to reserve specific IP addresses for specific devices in the DHCP server in the DIR-880L, Rev: 1.01.

I have about 50 devices on my LAN.  Some (like IP cameras, printers, servers, access points, main router) are static.  My PC's and wireless devices are dynamic. My DHCP server range is limited from 192.168.xx.60 through .xx.160  I have a number of port forwarding rules that reference devices that are assigned dynamic IP addresses, but they obviously have to receive the same IP address each time they are connected.  So having DHCP reservations are essential to me.  My old DIR-655 did this, no problem.

The new method of trying to reserve DHCP addresses is truly awful and doesn't work.

Here are some issues I have noticed so far:

1) The "connected clients" list also shows devices outside of the DHCP range that are assigned static IP addresses. They look exactly the same as the dynamically assigned IP nodes.  They should be flagged as static IP, don't you think?

2) The clients almost all show up as "Unknown" with "Unknown Vendor".  The MAC address is not shown.  How can one possibly determine which device is which?  At least you should show the MAC address!
NOTE:  When I run FING on my LAN, it can determine the vendor of almost all my devices. If this free LAN discovery tool can display MAC addresses & vendors, shouldn't the DIR-880L be able to do so as well?

3) Some of the devices don't show up.  eg: on my LAN, 192.168.xx.146 has never appeared on the client list.  This IP address is within the DHCP range.  The node is alive and I can ping it and communicate with it.  It can send emails out through the WAN.  But it isn't on the DIR-880L client list.  So I have no hope of assigning a static IP to it. 

4) I can't change an existing dynamically assigned IP address to reserve a different one.  If I type in my desired IP address, it is overridden with the existing IP.  I can only reserve the IP that happens to be assigned to the device right now?

5) No KICK (Revoke) function to force a device to get a new IP address.

6) No indication whether a reservation attempt was successful. Is an IP address on the client list actually reserved? or static? or subject to change at any time? There is no way to tell.  There is no DHCP reservation table that I can view.

7) Your support videos and FAQs for DIR series routers describe how to reserve DHCP addresses on all your previous routers.  But you have nothing for the DIR-880L.  (Maybe because this function simply doesn't work anymore?)

8)  The "Connected Client" screen rewrites itself every few seconds, which is expected.  I currently have 35 devices active on my LAN.  The nodes are solid and my network is stable.  However the client list varies each cycle, sometimes displaying  as few as 7 clients, sometimes 26.  And all number of nodes in between.  (But the router never actually manages to display all of my nodes!)  So the node you were about to try to edit may disappear or move somewhere else in the client list.  There is no discernable order to the list.

-----------------

Please generate a F/W revision ASAP that restores the old DHCP reservation functionality.  I had actually been hoping for a larger DHCP table in this new router.  It appears that I now have no useable reservation table at all.

OTHER ISSUES:
1) Accessing the GUI on this router does not always reset the "log off" timer.  Even when I am actively entering data into the router, it will log off periodically, wiping out any changes made on the current page.

2)  Why are there only 15  Port Forwarding and 15 Virtual Server rules on the DIR-880L ??  Even my old DIR-655 had 24 of each.  I don't happen to need all of them, but other users might.  Why cripple the new router, particularly since it (should) have so much more hardware resources available? 

I really feel like boxing this thing up and returning it, but I'm willing to wait if it looks like DLink is actually making an effort to fix this.

FW Update Process (http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=42457.0)

Lets try the following:
Factory reset the router. Turn OFF ALL devices accept for one wired LAN PC.
With out changing the default DHCP IP address pool, reserve the IP address for the PC. Then turn ON the next device and reserve it's IP address. Keep graduating adding and reserving devices.
Usually D-Links home class routers are reserved to only 25 reservations. I recommend that for some of your devices, like any NAS, cameras, printers, controllers, VoIP and phones, set them up on a static IP address on the device. Then set up reserved IP addresses for more high priority devices like PCs, Streamers and game consoles. This helps spread out the IP addressing application on our network with the router. Not all devices need a reservation especially for those that don't need high priority or heavy traffic access with the internet or be managed by the router.
>DHCP (http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=58017.0)


The UI differs from the older DIR series UI and thus features may differ as well or may not be seen or differ in design. Possible that sliding the reserve slider to unreserve the IP address now works as well to "revoke" IP addresses. Or the revoke function just may not be a feature with this new UI.

When reserving the IP address you should be able to edit the name and IP address that you want before using the slider. I believe that once the slider is moved, it should be recorded and populated to the device after the device is power cycle, the desired IP address should be seen on the device. The behavior of the reservation may differ from other DIR series since this is a new UI and design.

HW name identification may take longer than expected to correctly populate and display what the devices are. There maybe some FW issues which will be looked at by D-Link.

As for the log out timer, I think 3 minutes is all that D-Link allows due to there security policies, this is seen across most of the DIR series routers and will probably not be changed.

Support Suggestion:
I recommend that you phone contact your regional D-Link support office and ask for help and information regarding this. We find that phone contact has better immediate results over using email.

Hi Furry,
Here are the results of my latest tests.
FYI,
I am located in Canada.
 I tried one factory reset and complete reconfiguration from scratch using the original F/W (1.01).  This is a long and unpleasant process.  It made no difference.

It seems that there are three versions of the F/W out there.
1.01 12-Jun-2014  (Came with the router.)
1.01 07-Jul-2014   (On CA website.  What's with two different dates for the SAME F/W rev ?)
1.02 beta01   08-Aug-2014

When I tried the router's own UPGRADE F/W function, it said that I already had the latest installed .  (It had 1.01 12-Jun).

Since my original post, the beta showed up on the website so I upgraded the router with 1.02B01 before the latest tests.  I didn't do yet another Factory Reset after the upgrade to 1.02.  (Does this new router require a Factory Reset after every F/W upgrade?  )

The beta was a slightly different edit screen when trying to assign a reserved IP address.  BUT IT STILL DOESN'T WORK.

1) I turned off as many devices as possible.  (The only ones left on were STATIC IP's outside the range of the DHCP server. )

2) I rebooted my isy (the client device), forcing it to get a new IP from the router.  It finally showed up on the router's client list.
3) I toggled the Reserve IP slider and entered a new IP.  I saved it.
4) New IP didn't take.  So I rebooted the Router.  And the isy.  Several times.
5) Each time I look at the isy Client entry, the "Reserved" slider is off and the previous (automatically assigned) ip address is there again.  The SAVE doesn't work.
6) By the way, editing the client list is still a horrible chore since the number of clients still jumps wildly every screen update cycle. meaning that each entry can disappear and/or jump around.  It's like playing Whack-a-mole trying to find and hit EDIT on any client before it disappears and pops up somewhere else!

MY PROBLEM:  I have a large number of devices that expect my isy to be at xxx.xxx.xxx.146.  But I now have no way to reserve this IP.  So I shrunk the router's DHCP range and made my isy device STATIC.   I can get away doing this with this device, but I have lots of devices that need to move to other networks.

So, the router DHCP reservation feature wasn't working before the F/W update (1.01) and it still isn't working now under 1.02-B01.

I have never had to reboot any of my previous routers each time I assigned a DHCP reservation.  (It doesn't work anyway!)   

The part about this being a new UI with "new features" doesn't fly.  The fact that other users have been forced to use the DHCP servers on other devices on their LANs speaks volumes about the shortcomings  of the DIR-880L DHCP server.  It's bad.  Really bad.  Please use your influence to get it turned back into something useful.  Soon.

Thanks.
Frank

By the way ... all the bugs/shortcomings mentioned in my original posting still apply to 1.02.  I will call up telephone support to let them know how I feel about these problems.

We recommend doing a factory reset both before and after sending the FW file manually then setting up from scratch. I recommend following the FW update process as it ensures a good clean install of the v1.02 FW. I would do this process again and see if anything different happens.

Problem is some cameras can't connect because I can't assign static ip! (Need to know what ip certain cam connect to my router first before I can put in static ip).
Anyone tried to update to Canadian version FW 1.02? Any success?

I have loaded the v1.02 however still exhibits reservation issues. Setting all devices to Automatic and not static and using no reservations works for me.

You need to see if you can test another wired PC or LT if you can. Need to narrow down if the problem is the drivers, LAN adapter, wire or something on this PC. Maybe try PC with different router to confirm a different router works...

If you choose to load v1.02, please do a factory reset, load the FW file, factory reset and set up from scratch.
Do not use static IPs on the devices and test with auto and DHCP on devices. Just don't set any reservations on the router. D-Link knows of the problem and should be coming out with new FW soon to address this.

Thanks.
Definitely problem with the router.
I was using the same pc with DIR 826L WITHOUT any problem at all. (For 3 years now I think).
Try to upgrade to 880L because of the so called AC. May try to downgrade to 868L since it seems to have less problems.
Will try to update FW weekend and start from scratch. Or return the unit.

Try a reload of the FW after factor reset, then factor reset once again. Use Auto DHCP on the devices and don't set a reservation on the router. The PC should work and get an IP address from the router. Turn OFF all other devices while doing this.

Be sure LAN cable is a good working cable. Swap out to test.

Thanks Furry.
I updated FW to 1.02 and so far "all" DHCP worked (ipads, iphones, ip cameras, insteon, wemo).
Hope it will last!
Since you mentioned that reservation still not working so I am not going to try it yet until DLink fixed it.
(Spent so much time to reset all and don't want to screw it up again).
I can't register my router with DLink, it kept saying sending confirmation to my email then proceed but
I never get that email from DLink! Do you have any idea?
Thanks again.

Glad it's working.

Ya, D-Link should be coming out with new FW soon. I'll check on this. They know about the reservation problems. Ya, I just set the router up and avoided doing any reservations, for now.

Ya, I did notice that trying to register with MDL (mydlink), I got some error message. I haven't tried again since it's been off line and i'm currently testing on my 868L.

Thanks Furry.

Have you found a fix?

I have been experiencing the same with both DAP-1320 and now the DSP-W215. Both works fine when I e.g. use my LG G2 or an old DIR-655 as hotspot. I have the newest firmware on my DIR-880 and have reported the issue on both Facebook, tech-support and here in this forum (http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=61395.0).

Also EU-region (Denmark)

Kind regards,
Michael
