Title: Can't choose my own NTP-server on DIR-845L
Post by: svierkant on March 17, 2015, 05:39:50 AM
The DIR-845L isn't properly working when using it as an access point. The NTP-sync doesn't working because it thinks there isn't an internet connection. Please see this topic (http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=52794.msg251810#msg251810) for more details about this bug/missing feature.

Since you can't change the NTP-server (you can only select 2 domains), you can't select a local address. Since I've got multiple devices that have a NTP-server (my NAS, my other router), I don't need another device that connects to the internet to check what time it is.

Please make it possible to manually choose your NTP-server, so you can select a local IP (my NAS or router) or a server in you own country (I can only  select a server from Taiwan or US, while living in Europe). It makes the bug a mentioned before a little bit less irritating and adds another great feature as well.

BTW, why not using pool.ntp.org as default?

NTP and other router features are not supported on DIR series routers while in wired AP mode as they are designed to function and require the use of the WAN port. The DIR series class routers primary function is to be a main host router and not a 2ndary AP. Most of the features on the DIR series class routers are designed around being used with the WAN port in networking and technical specifications. If you need NTP services, then why not use the DIR-845 as a main host router? Or try this method:

D-Link chooses to only use there NTP services thus maybe no others are selectable or supported.

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

Good Luck.
