Bugs Seen:
Copyright year needs updating? 2014
Still seeing a translate message in Chrome stating page is in chinese.
DIR-890L   HW:A1   FW:1.09 text is visually running into the D-LINK text graphic on the Home page.
After doing a reboot, Chrome browser connects to the dlinkrouter URL instead of 192.168.0.1 which was used during configuration. Is this a browser behavior or FW behavior?
Saw a web page not available, connection refused for a few seconds when manually re-registering the router with my MDL account. Then message disappeared and saw registered successful with MDL.

New Features:
I see some wireless graphics and status on the client icons. Nice. What does the 5G-2 mean? 5Ghz on radio 2? This is nice to see this. The DCS-933L showed a wireless icon however not which radio.

Editing device names and saving seems to be working. Users will love this.  ;D

Recommended update protocol followed (Factory Reset / Upload Firmware / Factory Reset)
Using iMac 27" - latest OS X - latest version of Safari

*I am not able to select the WI-FI channel - it always reverts back to AUTO
*I am STILL not able to edit device names / reserve IP addresses for devices after 890L has been up / running / configured for awhile

If you reboot the router, can you made any reservations or edit names?

I cannot make any reservations / edit names after a reboot HOWEVER, I AM ABLE TO EDIT DEVICE NAMES / CHANGE IP RESERVATIONS for the devices I manually added (unique name / specific IP address reservation) while setting up the 890L after the firmware upload.  It seems like the 890L is probably "timing out / locking out" any changes after a certain timeframe for additional / new devices that are added, but allowing initial devices to be edited.

EXAMPLE:  Upon setting up the router after the firmware upload, I manually added a 15" MacBook Pro Retina.  I gave it the following name: 15" Apple MacBook Pro Retina.  I have it the following IP address reservation: xxx.xxx.0.103.  As of now, I am able to edit both the name and IP reservation without any problems.

I've also noticed QoS doesn't allow newly detected devices to be added / saved.  It appears to "time out / lock out" any changes.

There are a few devices in my home network I want to have assigned / reserved IP addresses, and I'm hoping to "reserve" them using the 890L.  I'm planning to do a factory reset, allow the 890L to "detect" the devices connected to my home network, and try to re-assign / reserve the IP address and rename the device (instead of manually adding those devices (rename device / assign reserved IP address).

Hopefully D-Link can address this issue and work out the "kinks"  :)

Ok so checking with my Mac Mini loaded with OSX 10.10.5 and Safari v9 I'm able to place some devices in QoS priority sections and saved the setting. It rebooted and showed me the 80 sec time count down.

After the reboot I'm able to edit names. Both on Static and Reserved devices.

I hadn't added my iPhone 6P as a reserved IP so I went ahead and did that. I was successful there. After disconnecting and reconnecting, the Iphone got it's reserved IP address.

Hopefully D-Link can address this issue and work out the "kinks"  :)

I just wanted to update the status of the issue I reported above......

After discussing the above issues with Furry, it was decided that I should perform a FACTORY RESET and allow the 890L to "detect" my devices, rather than "manually" adding / editing device names / setting IP reservations.  After performing a factory reset last night, setting up the 890L using the SETUP WIZARD, and allowing the 890L to detect any / all devices connected, I'm happy to report I can edit device names AND make IP reservations without any issues. 

I'm also able to edit QoS devices however, I DID HAVE TO REBOOT the 890L prior to doing so, as it initially wouldn't "save" the devices I placed in the QoS boxes.

One ISSUE I did uncover, is that when trying to manually select the WI-FI channel in 2.4GHz / Primary 5GHz / Secondary 5GHz, it reboots for 30 seconds and REVERTS back to AUTO.  This issue WAS NOT present in the previous firmware release.  I did reboot the 890L, disabled all but one radio, and still can't get the 890L to save the WI-FI channel I manually select.  Can anyone else confirm this issue?  I'd be interested in hearing back from a few 890L users regarding this issue.

Please be aware that if you are using another router as an AP (access point), this may cause problems.  I'm using the 868L as an AP, and determined the 5GHz radio on the 890L (Primary 5Ghz) and the 868L (5GHz) were using same channel (149).  I did change the WIFI channel on the 868L and rechecked the WIFI channels for all radios (890L - Primary 5GHz / Secondary 5GHz, 868L - 5GHz).  None of the 5GHz channels overlapped / were the same.   

Furry has suggested I turn off the 868L for awhile and just use 890L.  Stay tuned.   :)

Yes I can confirm this as disabling SmartWiFi and setting manual channels and selecting Save. After the 30 second timeout, checking the settings again displays AUTO instead of the configured manual channels.

You can also try in Chrome reloading the page using  ALT+F5 shortcut to reload the (page + refresh all other local store data like the CSS file) which is the culprit of displaying incorrect information. The CSS file has been updated on the new firmware as more elements have been added to the web UI.

I think I found an issue regarding QoS and devices with "changed" IP addresses. 

Example:  Initially, upon setting up the 890L after the recent beta firmware update, I noticed my son's Xbox One was given an IP address of xxx.xxx.xxx.126.  I changed the IP address to xxx.xxx.xxx.121 (Reserved).  When in QoS, it still shows the initial IP address (xxx.xxx.xxx.126), and not the reserved IP address given to the Xbox One.  I did check the Xbox One and it shows the IP address to be xxx.xxx.xxx.121 (AUTO IP / AUTO DNS).

I've performed a Reboot however, when in QoS it still displays the old IP address of the Xbox One (xxx.xxx.xxx.126), and fails to show the new IP address of the Xbox One.

Has anyone else had this issue?  Is anyone able to duplicate this issues (maybe with another device / or Xbox One)?

I'll have a look and see if I notice anything. I'm not at home till Monday.

Is the xbox IP address in a priority section while you notice this or just listed as one of the available devices in the row?

Might try changing the IP address on the reservation again and check the IP address after a reboot. Make sure the device is to placed in the priority section.

Checking my router from remote web page access:

Hopper reserved at .116. QoS shows .103
XB1 reserved at .198. QoS shows .140
MagikJack reserved at .182, QoS shows .104

Other devices are reserved correctly and displayed correctly in QoS.

I have not devices placed in the priority sections.

"Connected Clients" on QoS Engine Page

I'm using FW 1.09 on a DIR-890L (HW: A1), and the list of "Connected Clients" on the QoS lists incorrect IP addresses for clients with an IP reservation.  Is there a way to refresh the list of connected clients on the QoS management page?

As an unrelated observation, enabling the "Enable Anti-Spoof Checking" setting on the Firewall page results in intermittent outages on my local DNS (bind9).

Thanks for the additional confirmation on this issue. I've notified D-Link about it. I presume it will be fixed.

Please explain in more detail about the "Enable Anti-Spoof Checking" setting on the Firewall page results in intermittent outages on my local DNS (bind9)? Was this being experienced before the FW update? Did you factory reset before and after applying the FW update then set up from scratch?

Thanks, FN, for your reply.  Unfortunately, the details mitigate the usefulness of the observation a bit. 

I did follow the full FW update process provided on the beta download page, which involved factory resets before and after the FW update.  I did not, however, setup from scratch but uploaded a saved config.  I also had not enabled "Enable Anti-Spoof Checking" prior to the update, so I do not know if the issue was present before the FW update to 1.09.8.  Finally, I also had an error in my BIND (v. 9.9.5) configuration that denied recursion and cached queries to the router.

All I can really say is that switching off Anti-Spoof corresponded to an immediate correction of the local dns server's sporadic (but very frequent) failure resolve local device names.  Since the intermittent nature of the issue was pretty new and unusual to me, I didn't really know what else to pin it on.  Initially I investigated a possible hardware powering issue (local DNS is a Raspberry Pi), but as far as I can tell that wasn't the culprit.

I recommend not loading any saved config files and doing a factory reset and setting up from scratch. Loading a saved config file could introduce a corruption or mis-configuration of the router and give false positives. I recommend testing the router with out any additional DNS servers as these routers are designed for use with connecting to ISP DNS and do not support any loopback features where some queries may need loopback for correct operation.

Okay I'll do a scratch config over the holiday and see how it goes.

I know that the right answer is "when its ready", but since I am new to D-Link, when can/should we see the final version of this 1.09 firmware leaving beta and going into FINAL?     There are sure a lot of fixes that would be helpful to my situation, but I don't like running experimental firmware.

We don't know when FW is released so "when it's ready" sums it up pretty good. There is better operation in v1.09 however mostly for router mode.

Yes I can confirm this as disabling SmartWiFi and setting manual channels and selecting Save. After the 30 second timeout, checking the settings again displays AUTO instead of the configured manual channels.

One ISSUE I did uncover, is that when trying to manually select the WI-FI channel in 2.4GHz / Primary 5GHz / Secondary 5GHz, it reboots for 30 seconds and REVERTS back to AUTO.  This issue WAS NOT present in the previous firmware release.  I did reboot the 890L, disabled all but one radio, and still can't get the 890L to save the WI-FI channel I manually select.  Can anyone else confirm this issue?  I'd be interested in hearing back from a few 890L users regarding this issue.

**UPDATE**

The above issue seems to have "resolved" itself (somehow).  After discussing the issue with FurryNutz recently, he was able to "manually select a wifi channel" without it reverting back to "AUTO" like in previous troubleshooting back in November.   ;D   The recent troubleshooting attempts were conducted using the Firefox web browser.  If anyone else is experiencing the above described issue(s), please use the Firefox web browser to manually select the desired wifi channels for each of the wifi radios (2.4GHz / Primary 5GHz / Secondary 5GHz).

Hope this helps  ;D (and thanks FurryNutz for helping me out, and potentially other 890L owners).

This maybe an issue in OSX and Safari. I can't remember the exact testing I did at the time however I presume it was in OSX when I reproduced it and I didn't check in Windows. My testing yesterday was in Windows 7x64 using IE11.

At least we have a work around for OSX and Safari.

Users can enable developer mode in Safari then change the User Agent in Safari to FF or something else to see if this changes the behavior for use who like to use Safari browser in OSX. Or use FF.

Just like what GolfDude reported, Chrome tells me the router is not online and has only 1 client, even though it is actually working fine. Clearing the cache and refreshing the page does nothing. MS Edge (the successor to IE) works fine and shows all of the information correctly. Oddly, I installed it using Chrome and had no problems with the upgrade. Guess one o' them internets tubes or pipes got clogged up in Chrome.

Sorry for the delay in replying; had a sudden (and very welcome) rush of client work. Weirdly, it now is working in Chrome. Edge/IE always worked, FF worked, but I don't have Opera installed and forgot to check iOS Safari on my wife's iPad. But the unexplained part is that Chrome didn't work, and now it does. I had not turned off Norton Internet Security and was planning to do that just now, when I discovered there was no problem left to deal with, at least as far as Chrome is concerned. Perhaps NIS did its own heuristic analysis and opened the ports to Chrome. Dunno and don't know how to check anymore.

On the other hand, something new did happen, and I'll report that in a separate post.

Forgot to add that I had upgraded the firmware to try and address a problem with intermittent Internet disconnects. Happened about every 2 to 3 days. Setting the router to reboot every morning didn't fix it, but rebooting EITHER the modem OR the router seemed to work. Thought the new firmware resolved it, but right as I was writing my reply, it disconnected. I now believe it is confined to the modem, so no more on that topic. I will post separately on something new that may, or may not, be related to the firmware.

Email IMAP problem since upgrading.

Cannot say if this is related to the new firmware or not, but it happened about 1 day after upgrading to it, and there are no other reasons I can determine so far. I have been using Bluehost for my hosting and email on my named domain. I have 8 different email accounts on that domain, all configured as IMAP via secure access. I use Outlook on 2 PCs and have 2 Android devices that all access it. I've had zero problems until right after upgrading the router firmware. A day or so after doing so, I could no longer log into my primary IMAP email account because of a [Too many IP addresses [20] accessing account] error; webmail worked fine, so the account was still up. Error occurring on all of my devices with email clients, and could not resolve through any settings changes. No errors or blocks reported by Norton. Also, confined to my primary email account, not all of the email accounts on my domain; but then I poll my primary account more often than any other.

I have configured the router to save the system log to my main PC, using its IP address, but either it does not do so or I just can't find it, so I can't say if the router is reporting any errors or bounce-backs. A week after filing a trouble ticket, Bluehost responded by saying that I had a bunch of blacklisted IP addresses now, and that it looked like I may have been sending out large numbers of emails or spam, but I have not and nobody has sent me an email saying they were getting spam from me. Unfortunately, I cannot access the logs on Bluehost to see what IP addresses they are referring to, and they've not yet responded.

I fully realize that there are still many possible reasons for this problem suddenly appearing, including a hosting service that has gone to,,,, well, you know where. I only report it here because it began a day after upgrading the firmware. Don't know how long it will take to resolve it, so I can't say much more at the moment.

I think if it were FW related tou would have noticed immediately. If it was a day later after, I would presume it would be some in ur email system.

Yeah, I think it's the same thing. I only reported it because of the timing, and how mobile device email clients sometimes access email accounts too often even when they are set to poll on a schedule. My twisted reasoning for putting those two things together was that perhaps somehow the router, which is set for DHCP, was sending different IP addresses each time. But that was a long shot to begin with. I will now stop clogging the thread with this topic.

Thx

It seems that after the 890L has been set up and online for an extended period of time, I am unable to change a device name NOR reserve an IP address.  I've tried both Safari web browser and Firefox web browser.  I'm using the BETA FW v1.09 Build 08.  When I initially loaded the beta FW version, I was able to rename devices AND reserve IP addresses.

Hoping a few 890L owners might be able to test and report back.

Thanks  ;)
