What version are you on? Where are you located?

I haven't seen too many complaints. What is there to fix?

Been only 3 months since last update. Not that long ago. This model has not reached EOL.

Probably not of any concern since he doesn't have the 890L anymore and is from the EU region. They are effected by this energy policy in that region  which reduces the power levels on the wifi.

Hi all,
while at the page
http://support.dlink.com/ProductInfo.aspx?m=DIR-890L%2FR
there's a "Security Patch Firmware" 1.11B01 dated 11/09/16, at the Croatian support page the latest firmware is 1.10 dated 29.7.2016.
Any reasonable explanation why after few months I still can't find "Security Patch Firmware" at the Croatian support page?

Each region handles there own development and release of FW. 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.

I emailed to D-Link Adria (ad-info@dlink.com)
http://www.dlink.com/hr/hr/contact-d-link
approximately one month ago, but I haven't received any response.
Bearing in mind that D-Link DIR-890L here cost 360,56 USD (2.608,94 Kn), if a company is a serious one it shouldn't matter if I contact them by phone or by email.

I already said that I'm worried about security because at the Croatian support page, "Security Patch Firmware" 1.11B01 (dated 11/09/16) is still missing. From the other side, I have to admit that all this time my D-Link DIR-890L functioned very ok using 1.09b14 and later 1.10 firmware (all default settings): 1 desktop PC (wired), 2 laptops (wireless) and 2 smartphones (wireless).
Circa 30 days I have a guest in my home with one Apple iPhone smartphone (wireless) and one Apple tablet iPad (wireless). Last 30 days I'm experiencing few times a day slowing/dropping of Internet connection - consequently, every time it happens I have to restart my D-Link DIR-890L.

Can you see if enabling Guest Zone for your guest to see if any behaviors change?

Is the ISP Modem fully bridged? Its recommended to use modems with built in routers in full bridge mode or if it can't be, use the modems DMZ for the DIR-890L routers WAN port IP address it gets from the modem/router.
  • Check ISP MTU requirements, Cable is usually 1500, DSL is around 1492 down to 1472. Call the ISP and ask. Link>Checking MTU Values
  • For DSL/PPPoE connections on the router, ensure that "Always ON" option is enabled.
  • If the ISP modem has a built in router, it's best to bridge the modem. Having 2 routers on the same line can cause connection problems: Link>Double NAT and How NAT Works. Call the ISP and ask to see if the ISP modem can be bridged. To tell if the modem is bridged or not, look at the routers web page, Status/Device Info/Wan Section, if there is a 192.168.0.# address in the WAN IP address field, then the modem is not bridged. If the modem can't be bridged then see if the modem has a DMZ option and input the IP address the router gets from the modem and put that into the modems DMZ. Also check the routers DHCP IP address maybe conflicting with the ISP modems IP address of 192.168.0.1. Check to see if this is the same on the ISP modem, and if modem can't be bridged, change the DIR router to 192.168.1.1 or .0.254.

Is this what the modem is set on? LAN IPv4 Address (Modem): 192.168.1.1

Is the 890L handling the PPPoE connection?

Let us know sometime next week.

All above infos are coppied from Sagemcom Fast 1704 settings - including LAN IPv4 address.
I don't know how can I check if 890L handles the PPPoE connection?
