If I remember correctly its just ssh/telnet in and
radio5_eeprom_mac XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX (click enter)
x= your mac address's so write those down first before loading firmwares.
If there are any shared mac's i just followed the sequence. if lan mac ended in say B then wan would end with c radio2 with d radio5 with e. Fairly simple and have had no issues.
Really have to thank @radmir for preparing padavan firmware for our d-link dir-860L B1! Router is now really really fast and 5Ghz WIFI is working as expected. Finally stable and capable software for this mighty device. I couldn't install padavan fw from dd-wrt so I recommend to use LADE (ex OpenWRT) as you can see below in the post.
I've packaged required files and uploaded them here:
1. Revert to stock D-LINK firmware via recovery firmware upgrade page
2. From stock firmware, upgrade to LADE 17.1 and then install usb support packages (opkg install /path/to/*ipk). Write down MAC addresses of LAN, WAN, WIFI_2G, WIFI_5G, you'll need it later.
3. Prepare USB flash drive with FAT32 partition (not exFAT, be careful) and copy @radmir padavan fw for dir-860l b1
4. Connect to telnet/ssh and mount usb flash drive and flash firmware:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/media
mtd -r write DIR-860L_22.214.171.124-099.trx firmware
5. Connect to console via telnet/ssh and flash mtd2.bin:
After reboot you will see ASUS wifi network, try to connect. At this stage firmware is very unstable, unit is slow and network is not working reliable. Default login is admin/admin and wifi pass is 1234567890 (check padavan fw pages for more info: https://bitbucket.org/padavan/rt-n56u/wiki/EN/FAQ). BE patient, get the console, mount /dev/sda1 and issue this command:
mtd_write write -r mtd2.bin "Factory"
6. Restore MAC addreses using lan_eeprom_mac, wan_eeprom_mac, radio2_eeprom_mac and radio5_eeprom_mac. Reboot
7. Done! Now everything should work smoothly.
Thank you very much for this. Pretty tough process but somehow I got through it. I had the same issue that others stated in seeing duplicate mac addresses in lede. I ended up grabbing the mac addresses from dd-wrt, then recover to stock Dlink to start the process.
One thing to note is the VPN client in Padavan has been impossible for me to configure and I gave up after a dozen or so tries. It's still a much more useful firmware, so I'll set up a different vpn router.
If anyone is interested I've compiled Padavan firmware for DIR-860L B1.
No warranty. Backup your factory partition before flashing! Until you will not restore mtd2 router works unstable.
