These are the options that the router offers and is supported by D-Link.

QoS Engine - Feature Requests

The QoS engine used with my previous D-Link router (DIR-655) had considerably more control than the new one found on the DIR-868L.  Quite frankly, the new QoS engine appears to have made several steps in the wrong direction; limiting/removing functionality in the name of simplicity.  It would be nice if the QoS on the DIR-868L had the same features found on older models, including:

  • QoS Rules for Port Ranges - The QoS engine on the DIR-655 had the ability to create QoS rules based on single ports and port ranges.  The new system only allows rules for single ports.  The old functionality should be reimplemented as it allowed for much more control.
  • More Priority Ranks - Instead of a simple 1-4 priority system bring back the 1-255 system.
  • Automatic Uplink Speed - The old QoS engine had the ability to automatically determine your upload speed.  I have no idea why they would remove this.  It would be nice if the new QoS engine had the ability to determine download as well.

For reference, this was the interface on the DIR-655 QoS Engine: http://support.dlink.com/emulators/dir655/133NA/Traffic_Shaping.html

I've forwarded this on to D-Link for review.

Regarding the Automatic Uplink , there was certain limitations of the Uplink on the older gen QoS that limited the uplinks to 2Mb and was not compatible with any higher uplinks beyond that. After numerous threads, complaints and information sent to D-Link, they decided to give the users more granular control and higher uplink values in the newer gen QoS engine. So they did away with the automatic detection and went with letting the user select. I prefer having this over the old way as the new way allows for better options in todays higher UP link ISP services that are well beyond the 2Mb limit now days. I've had Zero issues with the new gen QoS engine.

This will be reviewed by D-Link however I can't say when or if it will be approved. Usually it takes months for some things to be approved and released in to FW. If your looking for a quick turn around, I'd recommend that you find a different model router that fits your immediate needs.

D-Link may or may not be including some of these features as probably the majority of home and small business user don't need this kind of feature, if much or anymore, and thus why D-Link maybe moving to more simplified use UI's on there routers. My 2 cents.

Thank you for your feedback.

I noticed a request for better NTP support, a field where you can enter ntp servers and for this to be used as configuration instead of ones supplied, I find the ones supplied get the timezone wrong!

So I'd like to 0.ntp.pool.org, 1.ntp.pool.org and 2.ntp.pool.org from NTP Pool project instead, but if option to supply a list of comma separated NTP servers could be accepted that would be ideal for all custom scenarios.

D-Link has only given the two optional NTP servers on this router. No custom NTP servers are supported.

Re: Seperate accounts for SMB
« Reply #20 on: November 14, 2014, 07:12:16 AM »

Oh, sorry for multiple posts but in this particular topic it seems to be legit.

In the storage section of the setup it's possible to set up multiple accounts for SharePort Web Access while in order to access connected storage media using SMB or simple windows share I need to access it using router's admin credentials. As far as I can see, using SharePort application on Windows doesn't require any form of identification although I might be wrong with this one. Anyway since there's already some kind of user control within the 868L I would love to map network media using those accounts. Second of all it would add some kind of privacy to network users but what is more important - safety. Some less experienced user can accidently remove data from disk and admin credentials start to fly around which is not desired at all.

Cheers!

That would be a important feature see also http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=61027.0

Besides, manual selection of the uplink speed does not allow to choose anything over 20 Mbps. The old DIR-655 auto-determine allowed QOS to be used with much higher uplink speeds. I'd like not to have to choose between QOS and my uplink speed of 100 Mbps.

Checked with my Windows 7 PC connected to the 868L v1.09FW (released web site) connected to my 890L in it's DMZ. All LAN wired
QoS disabled:


QoS enabled Strict Weighted and presets set to 5 and 100:



Upon checking other web pages, they fail to load in Opera and IE. However speedtest.net tests are working.  ???
Disabling QoS on the 868L results in web site access in all browsers.
Enabled QoS and disabling DNS Relay, web pages loaded. However, my 868L testing is with the 868L connected to the DIR-890L and in it's DMZ. Having BiggShooter retest with his 868L as main host router and disable DNS Relay and check web pages.

This issue is only seen with ISP down link speeds of 100mb or greater.

After several failed attempts to contact FuryNutz to confirm the status of a firmware fix (all of which were ignored) I decided to contacted DLINK support directly.  They are aware of the issue, however, they are not working on a firmware update to fix it

Looks like we are out of luck.

You updated your post two weeks after I asked you for confirmation.  By that point I had given up trying to reach you and contacted DLINK support directly.

I have tried all firmware versions and each is having the QoS problem.  The customer support rep. I talked to at DLINK said they are aware of the problem, but that they are not working on a fix for it.
