Sounds like the 880L is failing after a long period of time.  :-\

Yes, the 880L in bridge mode seems to work for a bunch of days before failing.  Unit is not hung even after downstream clients have been cut off from internet.
 Re-selecting the same 5GHz SSID via the webpage (from any client) will restore internet access to the clients for another bunch of days.  Mean time between failure is roughly 2-3 weeks.

This almost looks like a slow memory leak issue with the firmware ...  :-\

Only other test would be to try a different version of FW.

I'm having a similar issue with the DIR-880L (latest firmware).

Using this to connect to a DIR-895L as a bridge & after a day all clients connected to the DIR-880L will return an APIPA address. I then have to manually connect to the 880L & then if I scan the network I can reconnect & things start working again. A reboot tends to fix the issue as well.

I also have 2 other questions:

Once connected in bridge mode, due to having 2 dlink routers, I can no longer access the 880L's page. dlinkrouter.local opens my 895L page. Any way to access the 880L's page? I'm not seeing an IP address assigned in the 895L connected clients.

NTP doesn't appear to work while in bridge mode on the 880L either. Whether or not I use the dlink NTP server or input a manual NTP. Any suggestions?


Thanks!

What FW is loaded on the 895L?

I would try this, factory reset the 880L, downgrade to v1.08, factory reset once more then setup from scratch and configure Bridge mode.

The DIR-895L is at firmware 1.21

I cannot downgrade the 880L or it will become useless to me. I need the DLNA fix that was in v1.20B01 at minimum. The 880L is currently at v1.20B02.

I can try another factory reset on the 880L & reset it up, but do you know how to access the router after connecting via bridge mode? dlinkrouter.local will just route to the 895L after connecting.

Thanks!

DLNA was not working in v1.08?

After you set up the 880L in bridge mode and it's connected to the 895L, look at the 895Ls connected clients list to see the IP address of the 880L connected there. You can access the 880L's web page in bridge mode using the DHCP IP address for it in a browser.

Yep, if you look at the release notes for 1.20 build01 it shows a dlna fix. I originally bought the router to replace a DAP-1522. I had to stick with the 1522 because before the fix I could not see dlna from any clients connected to the 880L.

I have a laptop hardwired to the 880L right now, have full internet access via the bridge but the 895L does not show the IP of the 880L. So I have no idea what to try to connect to.

FYI, this was the thread I created when I first bought & couldn’t see DLNA

Hmmm, should show an IP address for the 880L.
Might try a FING app scan with a mobile device to see if that picks up the 880L and IP address.

Excellent call on Fing. That showed me the IP. I could only log in to the 880L hardwired into it. I got in & set up a daily reboot schedule to see if that fixes the issue.

I also just set the time manually instead of NTP since that wasn't working.

We'll see how it goes.

Glad you found it.

I guess that would be a good alternative work around to keep the 880L going. Set up a daily or weekly reboot.

NTP services works in bridge mode or ever did. That requires the use of the WAN port which is not supported in bridge mode.  ;)

Let us know how it goes..

Resetting the DIR-880L did not work, nor did the daily reboots.

My Xbox One X cannot see the DLNA server either anymore. It's all hit or miss which is really frustrating to say the least. When I initially set the 880L up, I was able to see the DLNA server. Now it's not working. Even after doing a "rescan" to connect to it.

I've gone back again to the trusty DAP-1522. Even though the download speeds were way better on the DIR-880L, I need reliability far more than the speeds at this point. Very frustrating. Does D-Link even make any other bridges? I may look into powerline adapters to see how those work but I'm not optimistic.

Thanks for the assist though.

Darn, was hoping.  :-\

I think the 885L and 895L were the last supported wireless bridge models.

One thing you could try, load up DD-WRT on the 880L to see if this help fix this with the 880L:

It's been a while since i've tired it with mine. I possibly could again...

Took your advice & tried DD-WRT. The DIR-880L is now 100% useless for me.

DD-WRT could not see the DLNA server at all. I searched & searched. Nothing. So I did a 30-30-30 reset of the router. Reinstalled FW1.07 from the emergency FW page. After that I went to the firmware 1.20B1 which has the DLNA fix. This worked fine before the installation of DD-WRT. I was confused as the router somehow remembered my settings once I got to that firmware.

Now I can't see the DLNA server at all on the DLink official firmware. I'm completely hosed.  :'(

I used the GUI to reset to factory defaults & re-set everything up. Still nothing. If I connect my laptop directly to the wifi of the DIR-895L I can see the server without issue. If I connect via the DIR-880L I can only see the smb share (which I don't have setup). The DLNA software (Serviio) can see the laptop, the Xbox X & my Blu-ray player as being active but the devices cannot see the server.

I am extremely frustrated that this issue continues to plague me. I wish there was a media bridge or router out there that would work. I cannot fathom why DLNA is consistently blocked.
