Dear D-link!

Unfortunately, the latest firmware (v1.05WWb05) doesn't working good. :-(
Connection via PPPoE: ok
Ping for any valid address: ok
Traceroute for any valid address: ok
Web pages: not working, except some (for example: www.facebook.com)
WiFi connection working, but the internet service on it also not working.
I think it will be a kind of DNS problem.
Backward to fw_103b01 everything working good.
What will be the problem? After I updated the newest fw, should I set the factory default on the 879?
After the factory default the newest fw will working properly?
Please analyze this problem?

Thanks,
Laslo

Dear FurryNutz!

I’m live in Hungary.
I’m wired connected to the DIR-897 (HW version: A1).
I did a factory reset with 1.0.3, and then updated to 1.0.5.
After update I did also a factory reset, but the problem also exist.
My browser: Firefox 55.0.3 (64 bit)

My ISP is RCD&RDS (in Hungary: Digi), and I connected to the internet with GPON (FFTH).
The DIR-897 directly connected with Cat5E cable to the ZTE ONT (modem).
I use PPPoE connection, and I get dynamic public IP.
Connection speed: 1000M down, 200M up.

I tried every settings that you wrote to me, but none of that solve the problem.
I thing this fw not working properly in EU (for example www.facebook.com, www.instagram.com and www.youtube.com working, but most of the sites haven't downloaded. One of the Hungarian pages has not been downloaded!
Web surface: Management/Upgrade/Check New Firmware -> This firmware is the latest version
At his moment I use 1.0.3. and the new fw checking doesn’t find any newer fw.

Are you using FW from your regional D-Link support site or from dlink.com?

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.

Dear Support,

The problem is still exists, I have bought a DIR-879 router today and after I tried updated from US and German site, they are caused the same issue as lacika76 said. On regional site(Hungary) there is just only datasheet what you can download, no firmware option. When will be it fixed? Because this is my first D-Link router, but it really might be the last one also.

Title: Re: Firmware 1.05B05 Released!
Post by: otisz on November 24, 2017, 07:32:54 PM
Yes it does, with DHCP the router could not connect to the internet, because with this type of connection there is no user authentication.

I presume this maybe an ISP/Router issue. We find that phone contact has better immediate results over using email.

It just only can be firmware issue, because without router(direct connection with machine) everything working well, so it could not be ISP issue. It could not be router as well, because if I downgradeing the fw everything is working again.

I don't get answer from the support yet. I tried DIR-879 with new firmware as switch and it works so the software has PPPOE bug.
Conclusion:
- I bought a not cheap router and new firmware of this router  has PPPOE bug
- I can't defend my network from the security gaps via this router
- D-Link support can't give answer to my ticket

Hi,
Upgrade the router with 1.05B05.
After setup ipv4 please also set the ipv6 internet section as:
- PPPoE,
- Share ipv4,
- Dynamic IP,
- Address Auto Configuration Settings set as Disabled
With DIGI 1Gb/s PPPoE connection it works!

the problem is with ipv4 vs ipv6 on the WAN port and also with Auto settings.

Hi all,

I'm having the same issue with my dlink dir-879.
With firmware 1.05B05 some sites work (facebook, gmail) but others don't.
I'm using PPPOE, from ISP RCS&RDS. I'm located in Timisoara, Romania. In this part of Europe RCS&RDS is the biggest ISP provider.
Also keep in mind that because of this issue many customers are giving many negative reviews on all retail sites, regarding this product.
I don't understand how such a big brand like DLINK did not yet solved an issue with a firmware released more than 6 months ago and which affects thousands of users.

FYI, the FW link posted by mtztraktoros, is for the eastern EU region only. All other regions, do not use this FW version on your DIR-879 model router.

Hi,
This is not the best review I've ever wished to post.
Bought this nice 200Eur Wifi router, quite impressed by the specs.
Worked quite fine under FW1.03 for ~6months. Minor disconnections that can be on the provider side.
Missing a lot the detailed logging and any cli . Only visual or wizzard based limited but very easy setups and configurations.
Today I opened the country specific DLINK official page, Romania, being determined to upgrade the FW. Notes stated ~30bug fixes and 6 enhancements. GREAT!
The only FW on the official dlink page was 1.05. After installation, of course, got the exact same problem like other colleagues before.
Upgd to 1.06beta and so far is good.

Just lost 4h for debugging and troubleshooting, and, ironically, still operating on a beta version..
In my view this is not the right way for a global company to support a high/premium product.   :-[
Real thanks to the engineers for their help!
Vali.

Internet Service Provider and Modem Configurations

Did you use the version of Beta FW linked at the head of this thread post or from the link that mtztraktoros linked too?

Yes. I used the above link. My problem, so far, was solved by upgd to FW 1.06beta.
