Firmware for 160Mhz?
« on: January 27, 2019, 03:13:50 PM »

Hi, I am from Holland amd want to replace my DIR-880L.

This router is advertised as having 160Mhz connections. I read here that it does not have it.
I just wanted to buy it to fully exploit my Intel AC 9260.
Any sign of a firmware-update for that?

Weird reason : DFS is holding it up. A good router should just switch down when important DFS-signals are in reach ???.

So no buy for me, as it does not bring me much more than my DIR-880L.

Its a process. I presume the DFS needs to be tested, set and certified first before other factors get setup. 160Mhz isn't main stream yet so not a high priority I presume. Hopefully they will get it going. I'd rather have a good feature that was done right then a rather that was rushed to market and not done well.  ::)

I agree fully, but then D-Link should not market it as such!

I honestly think at this point D-Link is not going to support it.  ::) I am asking about our new router line (ie DIR-2660) to see if they will get these certified to support 160.

As of now DD-WRT for the DIR-882 does add 160MHz support.

LOL just got a response to my email:

DIR-882 is supposed to support it in the next FW scheduled to be released March 2019.
