Correct. This is still considered a BETA firmware which is not pushed through the auto update server.

I haven't heard of any issues with the beta. If it doesn't work you can always downgrade back to the older version.

any DIR-885L owner who was  braved enough to update to v1.21B03 ?   

I am still on v1.20 for more 18 months now and find it stable, if aint broke then dont fix motto. 
Anyway, yes I would like to have that KRACK fix.
But this 885L is my main router with 25 to 35 devices (e.g. repeater, AP, IP cams, IOT, smart devices, pcs, phones, etc). Downtime will be nightmare for households users, seems internet is a must thing now :)

I really love this 885L, the CPU is great and able to handle video calls with ease even with dozens of devices, qos off.

You could try it and see if it works for you. If not, revert back to prior version.  ;)  I would save off the current router configuration to file before upgrading FW.

D-Link used to say in their FAQ on Krack that the Beta firmware would be tested and changed to the latest official release a while ago. The latest FAQ says the patch has been released and the case is closed. So should we assume that there never will be an final release of this firmware?

This will be the last version of FW made available. Should be good to use.

I'm really sorry to hear that. I bought DIR885L last year and a few months later Dlink finished support for this device. Um.
Now an important security patch has been released and it is only available as beta?? Um.
Full support for Windows XP has been available over 10 years from the end-of-sales.
Without patches this router will be a relic soon and can be thrown away. It's ridiculous. I will never consider Dlink in the future.

So your not going to load the last FW beta and keep using the router? Why not?
4 years is about the normal support duration run for D-Link routers. If you want to extend the life of the router, you can always load up 3rd party FW if they support it.

Routers differ from PC OS platforms. There is no comparison. ::)

Good Luck.

Actually I don't want to install FW beta because it's beta. When buying DL-885 last year i was hoping to use this router for years. I'm disappointed now. If I knew that End-of-Support would take place a few months after buying this router I would definitely not have bought it. 3rd party FW is not an option for me. I don't have enough passion and technical knowledge to use this kind of FW.
Without any regular support from Dlink I'm considering other options.

it can't hurt anything by giving the beta a try. You can always revert back to non beta FW. I've never had problems with beta's. There offered to users who wish to use them. The only thing is that the beta file may have not fully been testing with D-Link labs or completed testing. The beta FW you see now would be tested and upon concluding of that test, the file name would just be changed. It's up to D-Link to make there support policies and implement them. They choose when they stop supporting there products. If users want to use them beyond there support dates, that's your choice. You can certainly do that.

Anyways. Up to you.

Good luck in your endeavors.

I've finally got around to installing Firmware v1.21B03 BETA. Didn't go through the suggested process of factory reset, install firmware, sacrifice goat under full moon, setup from scratch. I simply installed it over my current settings. No smoke. No sparks. No loud bang. Router rebooted when the firmware was done loading and has been working without issue. Will let you know if I notice anything.

If you seem to exhibit or continue to see problems, please factory reset and setup from scratch to confirm if problems continue or not.

Thank you.
