Hi there,

I have this firmware installed and it works flawlessly.
The Krack fix i cannot check, but DLNA intermittent problems, which i had, seem to be fixed now.
I do not know if it was there in an earlier update, but you can now add an IP-reservation from the connected clients list. Before (at least untill V1.08B04) you had to wait until a device showed up there and then you could change it's credentials.

The fix consists of 2 seperate firmware updates, which have to be done after eachother, so read the readme first and....reset first.
You cannot return to earlier firmware after this update.

Good luck with it, Hugo

Hello,

I tried upgrading my DIR-880L from 1.08wwB06 to this firmware per the instructions, however, I receive an error when trying upload the first firmware file (1.10). I tried uploading the file via Chrome, Edge and Internet Explorer browsers, but none worked. I then tried uploading the second firmware file (1.20) and had no problem.

Is there any risk with not being able to install the first firmware file?

Skip the intermediate file, v1.10 and apply the v1.20 file...

Thank you. That is what I have done and have not noticed any issues so far by skipping the first firmware file (1.10). The router is running smoothly.

Months ago when I upgraded FW to 1.08 Build 06, the "Middle" software file installed fine.

Yesterday when I upgraded to FW 1.20 Build 01, the "Middle" software didn't work.  Based upon a prior post, I upgraded to 1.20 Build 01 anyways without the "Middle" software.

Just curious, what's the reason-purpose of the "Middle" firmware file, i.e. what does it do ? ? ?

The "middle" firmware basically adds encryption to the firmware. If you try updating the router with the middle file and it fails, it means the encryption has already been added so you can skip it and upload the 2nd firmware.

Thank you for that explanation about the "Middle" firmware.

I would like to move on from the 1.07 B08 firmware to the 1.20B02 (I am not having 'problems' per say, but patching out security vulnerabilities is important).

Flashing the firmware fails straight from 1.07B08, presumably because of the encryption in the firmware. Using the link
https://support.dlink.com/ProductInfo.aspx?m=DIR-880L there are no 'intermediate' versions between the 2 available for download. Is there any way to get the intermediate/encrypted FW ready binaries?

Please download and install the FW files for the following version: v1.20B01-01-i3se BETA
There will be two files included with in this .zip file.

Once you have these installed, then upgrade to the last v1.20 version available dated 12/2018.
