Title: Firmware 1.20B01 Released - SECURITY PATCH
Post by: GreenBay42 on October 06, 2017, 09:52:37 AM
The ZIP file will include 2 firmware files, release notes, and instructions.

Install v1.11B04 first, reboot, then install 1.20b01, reboot. It is recommended to perform a hard reset (paper clip in reset hole for 10 seconds) after updating.

DO NOT SKIP v1.11B04. Updating to 1.20B01 directly will not fix all issues.

When I do a hard reset can I use the old settings saved in .bin and load them into the new firmware?

I recommend setting up from scratch after doing one more factory reset after the router processes the file. There is a few versions between the last official release version and v1.20. So I would just set up from scratch again then save off a new config to file after everything is set up on v1.20.

I installed firefox here just to test, nothing too, it does not save anything in QOS.


I cleaned the cache in ie and chrome, the firefox installed only for the test, it was never used. QOS definitely died.

Another bug, connections in 2.4 ghz are being listed in the GUI as connections in 5ghz. Example: Chromecast

Ok, so I did the following on my Mac connected via LAN cable.
Factory reset.
Loaded v1.11B04 with Safari.
Loaded v1.20 with Safari.
Factory reset.
Manually set up from scratch.
Set my Mac and iPhone 6sP for reserved IP addresses. Both were seen by the router. Unknown Device was listed for my iPhone 6sP however may have been due to no host name for iphone being used or iOS 11.0.2. Mac (OSX 10.10.5) was seen as APPLE.

Configured QoS By Device. Set my Mac into Highest and iPhone into Medium and manually input my ISP speeds and saved settings. I got a 15 second please wait window. I let the web page expired and logged back in and QoS are still there.

Left the SSID name default for now with OPEN Security. Smart connect enabled. My Mac was showing on LAN PC connection before I changed to wireless. Now Mac and iPhone show as being connected to the 5Ghz wireless radio. However there is a wireless signal bar icon seen on the LAN PC cable connection tile for the mac that was initially connected on the LAN cable.

Did a save config to file. Safari it saves the file automatically for me my desktop which it did.

How long did you enter into QoS after you had loaded the FW and factory reset the router?
What version of Windows are you using?

I updated my FF version for mac and it's also showing correctly with the UI and QoS. I changed my iphone from medium to high section and saved the setting and QOS gave me the 15 second please wait window.

Post by: samukets on October 08, 2017, 03:14:55 PM
 made the first update, then did the second update. After the whole process I went to the reset button and reseated the equipment twice.

Soon after I tried to activate the qos but it does not activate.

I use windows 10, last update.

I tried with chrome, firefox and IE.

Dese the beginning is happening exactly as I show in the video, change and nothing happens.

EDIT:
I turned the power off for 10 minutes and changed the GUI to English. now QOS has saved. I do not know if it was the energy removal or the English GUI that solved it.

So, I configured by application, upload 16mb, download 155mb. my internet is 150mb download by 15mb upload.

In speed tests with active QOS I can not exceed 50mb in the notebook.

on android is only 4mb

Is this right?

Test the speed via LAN wire cable with a PC first.
Test with QoS disabled for any speed testing as QoS can and will effect some over head for itself.

Friend, I tried to shut down QOS but the GUI was not accepting to disconnect, then I took the router out of the socket and soon after I turned off the QOS when it came back. It seems to me a bug, here the QOS only accepts to be configured soon after the equipment initialization, then it does not accept any more commands.

Im from Brazil and i use portuguese language on GUI.

Possible that the QOS bug has returned for Windows users. I'll recommend you go back to v1.11 B02 or B04. I'll have D-Link take a look at this.

I just tested this and I'm not able to see what you've been experiencing. My update process started from 1.10 and then 1.11 and 1.20. It sounds like the router is not responding properly to the web interface's action functions. Try clicking through the rest of the GUI see if you are any missing  icons, labels, etc.

 Change the LAN IP of the router to 192.168.100.1/24  instead of 192.168.0.1, this will rule out any computer cache related issue.

From the DIR-890L Support site http://support.dlink.com/ProductInfo.aspx?m=DIR-890L%2fR (http://support.dlink.com/ProductInfo.aspx?m=DIR-890L%2fR)   

The FW updates go from v.1.10.B07 08/23/16 then the next is v.20B01 10/06/17.   There is Security Advisement (1.11B02 BETA01)   07/18/17 but I didn't see a 1.11B04.

When I used the bootloader to come back to out of the box software from DD-WRT - Used 1.10.B07 (Full Release) - Router rebooted and when I logged in it said FW update and took me to the manage update page where all I had to do was hit upgrade.  Router rebooted, same thing, new update, ran the update, rebooted and had another one or two updates and came to a stop with this Firmware Version: 1.20, Wed 27 Sep 2017  Current Firmware Date: 2017-09-27 15:40:00.

never saw the v1.11B04 and not sure if the 1.11B02 BETA01 installed as it looked like an afterthought for FW updates. Do I need to go back and flash the v1.11B04 - reset router - flash to v1.20b01 and then do a factory reset and configure from scratch?

The transition file is included the v1.20 zip file if you had gone that route.

If the router updated to 1.20 correctly and is working. You'll be fine.

set mtu to manual, 1492 and after 60secs reboot nothing, auto again.

Friend, you're right, testing for internet meters, I'm always slow on wifi and with good cable speed. When I download Ubuntu, I reach the maximum speed on both the wifi and the cable. It is only strange that I use these speedtest and they give a value in the cable and another in the wifi but in fact I am receiving all the potential of the network since in real situations of download everything is ok.

When I had the time and testing routers, I would set up a server PC connected with and test PC to the router alone. Set up wifi SSID so nobody would connect and run local tests with the router using LAN wired and wireless connections. Testing with large files placed on both PCs. Share out the folder on the server PC and did Read and Write tests with the large files back and forth on the test PC. Found this to be a good test and more towards what users would be doing on occasion for file xfers. Good way to exercise the LAN and wifi speeds.
 Can find sample of my test results for the 880L here:

In this way shot once for all the bottleneck points. I have noticed instabilities and after the exchange of one of the cables has improved enough, reflecting even in the wifi.

Did you install the transitional FW version file before you sent the v1.20 version file? There is two FW files in the zip file. You have to install the transitional version first before installing v1.20.

Fully read the FW update instructions for v1.20 before upgrading.

Funny you touch the subject. Yesterday I installed dd-wrt, many functions, wonderful but I could not put  wifi to work 100%, always with low speeds. Then I went back to the original firmware and it is 100% my wifi, I made all the updates through the GUI, starting directly from 1.09 to 1.20 and then I did the 30/30/30 reset, wifi working well.

Until then I used the router without the modem of the operator, used the VLAN 600 but now I am testing with the modem of the operator (POWEBOX SEAGECOM), apparently it is more stable.

Before the dir-890 was doing PPPOE on the VLAN 600. Now I'm testing with the modem of the internet carrier and the dlink receiving the signal through DHCP.

A pity that now who manages my network is sagencom 2764 (terrible equipment, blocked by the internet operator) but still, it seems to be more stable than the dlink doing the pppoe on vlan 600.


It would be wonderful if the original firmware had at least 1/3 of the dd-wrt functions. The fact that you can make vlans on each door is sensational. Advertising blocker and other wonderful functions. It would be great to have a high-end router for enthusiasts who already came with advanced features in the original firmware.

Sounds interesting.

I don't recommend doing any 30/30/30 resets on D-Link routers. Isn't needed. Just factory resets before and after Updates is all thats needed.

Heard many issues in recent WRT versions. Not sure whats going on over there.  ::) Wireless drivers are the same and what D-Link uses since it's in the GPL core coming from D-Link.  ;)

Strange, I did everything for the wifi to work and the 5ghz radio was slower than the 2.4ghz. I followed the recommended settings from the forums but I was not successful. I am currently using the native firmware.

Do you know what is funniest? Now, after installing ddwrt and getting back to the original firmware, my wifi is 100% even on the smart connection.

Strange things happen ...

Edit: Some people are reporting connectivity problem with chromecast and ddwrt.

Interesting. Makes me wonder what the WRT devs are doing with the GPL and wireless drivers there. Seen posts about WRT not working at all on the 895L and 890L. I recently loaded up my 868L and couldn't get the recent build loaded. I had to be all the way back to initial release then upgrade to "Quarysg" build. He's been actively working on the 868L and 880L version there. So far not impressed with WRT on some of these routers...Wondering if theres been a spattering of bad builds.

Curious, have you tried the new 33772 version over there?

One thing I noticed with my 868L, I had to install the very first initial release, factory to WRT, then the save version of the webupgrade file on top of it, then upgraded to most current version of WRT. Wonder if that would provide any other experiences.

A word to the wise. DO NOT attempt to upgrade to 1.20 until they fix their QoS config issues. I spent two days and hour on the phone tech support today and they basically said that I would need purchase a new device. Also, I was finally able to downgrade to 1.10 and get my QoS settings back but when you use the config file to reload your settings, it clears your password. In my case, I use CAPTCHA so i finally figured out that I needed to leave my password entry blank but I still needed to add the CAPTCH entry as displayed. DLINK - please fix your problems instead of saying we need to purchase another device because the one we have is defective. The device is not defective, you are in the manor you releasing and supporting firmware updates. SHAME ON YOU!

Did you first apply the transitional v1.15 FW before applying the v1.20 FW.
Also did you do a factory reset and set up the v1.20 FW from scratch and NOT load any saved configuration files and set up QoS from scratch?

The FW update process is detailed and out lined.

What problems are you experiencing with QoS?

Hi furrynutz,

I did the 1.11 update per dlink instructions. i have never seen any 1.15 updates available.

I also did the factory resets as you described earlier in these posts. However, I was not able to update to 1.20 successfully (tech support even tried with me for about an hour today), only 1.11 was successful but even in 1.11 the QoS configs are not functional (i.e. you can not change the QoS settings and save them). You cant even turn off the QoS settings.

I am using windows 10 and I dont have a MAC to try it with. I noticed you were successful using a MAC/Safari from your earlier posts.

Oops, I had wrong version, v1.11b04 is the transitional version used before v1.20 which is included in the .zip file for v1.20.

I would give the process a try again, doing a factory reset and apply v1.11B04 then apply v1.20 using FF browser for Windows. Then do a factory reset. While the router resets, clear the FF browser caches, exit the browser then relaunch and set up the router from scratch. Do not load any saved config files.

Let us know how it goes...

Thank you. This process worked with exception that I had to load 1.20 in recovery mode in stead of standard router GUI. I now have 1.20 successfully installed and QoS settings are operational.

Awesome. Interesting about recovery mode.

Was there a message in the UI when you attempted to load v1.20 after v1.11?

What browser are you using currently?

Post by: GreenBay42 on November 22, 2017, 12:45:22 PM
Furry,
After the 1.11 firmware is installed, the UI detects the 1.20 firmware but if loaded through the interface it can sometimes mess up the router and they have to recover it.

The instructions in the file package were updated today to update v1.20 using the supplied file, not the interface.
Title: Re: Firmware 1.20B01 Released - SECURITY PATCH
Post by: FurryNutz on November 22, 2017, 12:51:25 PM
Interesting that I got mine thru the UI.

So if the recovery mode is used, can't they go from say v1.10 directly to v1.20? Or does the v1.11B04 still needed?
Title: Re: Firmware 1.20B01 Released - SECURITY PATCH
Post by: GreenBay42 on November 22, 2017, 12:56:13 PM
In most cases it works.

I believe the techs have had them recover to 1.11 and then upload 1.20 (file, not interface) and it works.

I'm able to save the QoS settings on Firefox ESR, but on Chrome it does not load the GUI properly. Same behavior with IE11, it will not load the GUI properly.

I changed the default IP address to 192.168.0.2 and the GUI displayed all the options and the QoS started to work and settings were saved on IE11 and Chrome.

Everything is working fine on my side now. Before I was having all kinds of GUI issue after the firmware update but it was partly fixable by changing the router's default IP address to a ".2". It is very odd but I tried it on a different computer with a fresh install of Windows 7 and do not see the issue. So clear your web browser's cache.

Clearing the cache did nothing for me. I also downgraded back to 1.11 to see if that worked. It did not help. Is there true way to hard reset to the router? The reason ask is because before I downgraded, I changed the default to .2 as suggested and the .2 remained even after a hard reset. make sense? I f could just clear the QoS settings, that would be great but I cant just turn it off because browser settings wont take.

It is strange to me that no browser is working. I use chrome and IE on mine and it works fine. Something on your computer is probably interfering (or the router is defective).

Have you tried a different computer?

Also, to reset hold a paperclip in the reset hole for 10 seconds and release. This will erase all your settings. IP = 192.168.0.1  username - admin  pw - leave blank.

Do all the other pages in the router save normally? Is it only the QoS page?

On the QoS page, press  CTRL-F5 to refresh and try again.

When you reset the router last, you said it was still at .2?  If this is the case the router did not reset properly.

The save button should be the same javascript script. Being isolated to QoS something may be glitched on the firmware.

I would try an emergency firmware recovery. This will completely overwrite the firmware.  I would use 1.11 firmware file. Also you will need to statically assign your computer its IP settings (if not already) - 192.168.0.20 or something other than 1    255.255.255.0   gateway and dns dont worry about.

Hold the reset button down with a paperclip, unplug the power from the router and plug back in while still holding the reset button in. Wait about 5-7 seconds and release. Once it boots, go to 192.168.0.1 and it will ask to upload a firmware file.  Load it and try again.

And I have exactly the same problem, nothing on QOS-page saves. I cannot turn QOS off or anything. I'll try factory resetting it, when I get the line connected and will inform about my findings...
Strange thing is, if I click for it to test the bandwidth itself the numbers seem to stick (though they are not correct...), but in reality they do not stick. Reboot and there are the same numbers I put there, when I enabled QOS. There surely is something fishy here ;)

Emptied both browsers caches (though haven't used them to set router-settings earlier) and forced page update with Ctrl+F5, but no. Nothing saves on QOS-page (and there even flashes the window "Saving changes").

Ok, I'll have D-Link review this. Seems there is still an issue with this that needs to be resolved.

Thanks for your detailed info.

Are you able to provide remote access to your router? Or I can provide you access to my 890 to test?
We can chat privately for this.

Sounds like you may need to contact your regional D-Link support office and ask them for an RMA. If you don't have a back up router. Ask the for a cross shipment RMA if that option is available.

Let us know how it goes.

Yes, we had a testing and chat session with Gattsu and arrived at the same conclusion ;)
I'm trying to do the emergency recovery zeroing and updating it back from there. And if it persists, I'll be contacting them for RMA. I'll keep you folks up-to-date with how it's going :)

OK. I'm back with going through the procedure.
Installed 1.09 and then 1.10
At this point I tested the changing the QOS-settings and they worked properly. BTW I didn't reset factory defaults in any state and it remembered my old passwords etc. Well, anyway...
I then proceeded to update to the latest FW so 1.11 and then 1.20.
Tested QOS-settings and it was same as before. They didn't work. I then decided to reset to factory settings and got through initial settings. After this, QOS-settings were at their default and I tried to set them again and it saved them properly... Strange...

That was from UI. I have to say, that I don't actually remember, if I did the factory reset when I updated FW (ever)... But I will have to change the  QOS-bandwidth tomorrow, when they connect the VDSL-line. We shall see...

Finally the new speeds came up properly (had to call ISP and ask why I am still on 2 megs speed, though!)
Checked the real speed (something like 94ish down and 30ish up... Happy with the down, not so on up... 100/50 ordered) and went to insert new numbers to QOS. Lo and behold, it again doesn't save the settings >:(

Well, I opened the case at D-Link. Let's see how long I have to fight with them  ;)

Factory reset the machine (again), though and inserted the new numbers as that still works  :o

"We are pleased to confirm we shall shortly be despatching your replacement product to you at the customer address shown below."
And
"The prepaid return label and instructions for returning the product will be sent to the email address registered to your customer number."

So, this was quick and it seems that I will be able to use this one until the new arrives. And then send this one back.

Interesting, I have the same issue with QoS setting being impossible to set. Opening in HTTPS, get a 'Router not found' when attempting to save. Restarting box does not help. Using HTTP then I can 'save' the setting but when the page refresh it is still OFF. Same rebooting DIR890L does not resolve the issue. Wish I could use this functionality to ensure 2 of my high priority but low bandwidth required get ahead of anything gobling everything.

Then there's the issue of QuickVPN that just want to use 192.168.100.2 instead of allocating an IP that is actually within the range of what the DHCP server is set for. Because you know if I VPN to my network under that IP, I get nowhere.

Then there's the issue with 'The maximum number of permitted DHCP reservations has been exceeded.' that even if you go back to other devices and deassign IP reservation, let say even up to 10. The box still refuse to reserve anymore. Reboot don't fix that either, only fix is a full blown reset.

The DIR890L has good performance but the configuration are sub-par, are wonky under HTTPS constantly timing out, or giving router not found. HTTP works a bit better but still get time out when you take too long to make you setting you hit SAVE and get to the login page.

I never been able to run QoS, can I also get an RMA setup?

Rebooting didn't help me with getting the QOS to save, I had to reset the router and then it worked for a while (about 3 days, maybe).
I don't use QuickVPN or DHCP-reservation, so cannot say anything about that.
One thing I found, was that earlier I was forced to set router to reset itself every day (I have SmartConnect enabled). Because, at least, my Note 3 started to drop out of WiFi constantly, under 2 days of being connected. I had always used ipv4/6 multicast streams on, for some reason I though that I would need them (no, I don't have any IPTV or such). When I was configuring the "new" router, I decided to test and turn those off. I don't know if it's those settings OR the "new" router, but my Note 3 doesn't drop out of network anymore. And I don't have the router set to reboot every day anymore...

Btw. I have never seen an A2-hardware revision of 890l, didn't know there was one made :)

Yes, seem it is an A2. Thanks for the extra information, I never been able to get QoS setting stick which is my major pain. The other issue are just either poorly written software or due a bad unit. Because having to restart and/or reset regularly to get setting to stick is no fun, especially when you have time sensitive device that need to access the Net 24/7. This unit was bought to replace a router that I loved but died after many years of heavy duty services.:)

As someone suggested, I'll try to get in touch with regional Dlink see what they make of this.

As an update, I changed my VDSL-modem and decided to test throughput again.
Well, the result is the same as on my earlier 890l, QOS-page again is not saving the changes xD
The settings are ok for me at the time, though. So I don't believe I'm bothered to do a new RMA-run. If I need to change them, I just reset the whole machine and setup it again  :o

I'm wired, RMA-router was 1.09 when it came and I updated it straight from UI until it was the latest version.
The earlier one I updated manually from latest (1.10?) to intermittent 1.11 and from there to 1.20.
And as a few people has said, QOS-page stops to save after about 3 days, with "Saving"-window just quickly flashing on screen, without the proper countdown as it does when saving properly...
