New UI is way too basic
« on: June 20, 2014, 12:16:11 PM »

I've had my DIR-880L for about a week now. It works great but I don't like the way D-Link have removed some features from their new UI. Many pages have an "Advanced Settings" button they could put...advanced settings under.

There is no way to disable WPS or WPA1. I copied this from another D-Link router UI:

Quote
For best security, use WPA2 Only mode. This mode uses AES(CCMP) cipher and legacy stations are not allowed access with WPA security.
[...]
To achieve better wireless performance use WPA2 Only security mode (or in other words AES cipher).

So in D-Links own words, the 880L is less secure and performs worse than their previous routers.

- WLAN status with signal levels.
- In-UI logging.
- Allow short passwords, not just blank or >=6 characters.
- Setting to increase or disable UI session timeout.
- Setting to always show advanced settings.
- Setting to show time in 24h format.

The software is still 1.0 so I'm hopeful D-Link will improve.

Thanks for your input and feed back. Yes, D-Link seems to be moving to a more less complex router UI with this router, as I've seen in other Mfr routers. I do miss the availability and advanced features of the other DIR series router UI and I do hope that D-Link will add too this nice router.

Please feel free to post here and will let D-Link know of your desires:

Thank you.

Is there a 80MHz only on the 5GHz wireless settings?

What region are you located?  ???

If no 80MHz only what do you set it at to get AC speeds?

Yes, have to use Auto Channel width to get the nigher AC speeds. You can run 20/40 on AC however the connection speeds will be lower between the router and devies.

Auto 20/40/80 I guess.
