DIR-868L in AC mode
« on: September 24, 2014, 01:13:37 PM »

Hello,

i have the DIR-868L for a some time.  Till now I only used 2.4Ghz.  But now I have bought an USB ac wifi adapter for 2 laptops and also my new tablet uses ac.

Everything is fine when I have 1 laptop and the tablet connected, but when the 2nd laptop connects all devices have very slow or no connection.  When I shut down 1 laptop the 2 other devices have again maximum speed.  I know the bandwith is shared on all devices, but it's seems not normal with only 3 devices.

I have much more devices connected to 2.4Ghz and have no problem at all.

DIR-868L has FW 1.08

Link>Welcome!

  • What region are you located?
  • Was a Factory Reset performed before and after any firmware updates then set up from scratch?
FW Update Process
  • Was the router working before any firmware updates?

Wireless Configurations
Links>Wireless Installation Considerations and Managing Signal Congestion and Good Neighbour Policy
  • Ensure the default (dlink) SSID name is changed. Can be anything and not something that's already in use by any neighboring WiFi routers. Under Setup/Wireless/Manual.
  • What wireless modes are you using?
  • 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz routers: Try single mode G or N or mixed G and N on 2.4Ghz and single mode N or AC on 5Ghz?
  • Channel Width set for Auto 20/40/80Mhz
  • Try setting a manual Channel to a open or unused channel. 1, 6 or 11. 11 for single mode N if the channel is clear. 13 for EU regions. Try channel 48 or 149 on 5Ghz.
  • What security mode are you using? Preferred security is WPA-Personal. WPA2/AES Only. Some WiFi adapters don't support AES, so you might want to try TPIK only or Auto TPIK and AES.
  • What wireless devices do you have connected?
  • Ensure any devices with WiFi adapter drivers are updated.
  • Any 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz cordless house phones or WiFi APs near by?
  • Any other WiFi routers in the area? Link> Use InSSIDer to find out. How many? Use v3, its free.
  • If you have any of these options, Try turning OFF or ON Short GI, WLAN Partition, Extra Wireless Protection and HT 20/40 Co-existence if you have it. Also testing with HT20/40Mhz Co-existence enabled will impact results as well. I prefer to use this option OFF. Recommended settings are default. Under Advanced/Advanced Wireless.

What model and Mfr is the USB adapter?
What are the connection rates your seeing on the router under Status/Wireless?

I will test it first with another router, because I think the problem is situated at the wifi adapter and not the router.

If you can find other adapters or other devices that support AC mode as a test, will help narrow down the problem. Keep us posted.

Sorry, I should have looked to see your location.
Please update using this link:
http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=61003.0

The one I posted is for the NA region only. You need the EU region update which will be collected by the router using the auto update check feature.
