Where did you find this? This firmware is not in our global database.

I just installed ver 1.20 over the automatic update. The router said a new firmware is available when I signed in.

Thanks. The firmware is usually pushed through our global database a week before they publish it on the firmware server. I guess this one is an exception.  I will contact the router guys for the official release notes.

Checked mine today via router UI, v1.20 appeared and installed. I now have the 80+80Mhz support on 5Ghz.  ;D

I'll put this online this week and test it out.  ;)

Can someone explain to a non-expert network admin what 80+80Mhz gives me?

It means if you have a client devices that also supports 80+80Mhz channel width on 5Ghz, the connection rate between the 882 and this device will be 1700Mb instead of 1300Mb.  ;)

Setup a NetGear R7960P in wireless bridge mode connected to the DIR-882 v1.20 in router mode today. Looking good:  ;D
https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/d/ad255b44-dd5f-4f73-8f2a-a840de5f0890

The R7960P supports 160Mhz, however I can't tell if it's connected at 1700Mb. I'll connect my R7800 in wireless bridge mode and it will let me know if it's connected at 1700Mb.  8)

Well the R7800 reports 17333Gb/s in wireless bridge mode with the DIR-882:
WiFi0   ath0 ESSID:"Airport Extreme" , CH:153(P)+149(S), Frequency:5.805 GHz Rate:1.7333 Gb/s, Tx-Power (100%):29 dBm (794 mW), RSSI:-46 dBm

Speed test is good too.  ;)

Looks like they also added an auto firmware update feature with scheduled time option as well

Could someone else please check if my experience is unique or it can be reproduced .
Before the upgrade to v1.2  from v1.11 I used to get ~60-62 MB/s from my NAS ( wired of course )to my laptop ( Intel 7260 AC 2x2 wifi card ) but now it seems that it tops out at ~40 MB/s .
The 160 MHz channels do nothing for me right now since I have no compatible clients but the bug fixes to IPv6 Prefix Delegation issue (ISP RDS Romania ) and also the fix for the VPN Server / Firewall issue (which by the way is a little better @16 Mb/s speed both up/down from a max of 12-13 Mb/s on v1.11) are things for which I would like to keep using v1.2 but not at the expense of loosing 33% wireless bandwidth ( the link speed is still 867 Mb/s but the actual throughput is way worse ).

Was a factory reset and setup from scratch performed after loading v1.20?
