I had a router that I had flashed with dd-wrt, but the wifi died, so now I ordered an 890L. There are a few questions I have before I flash it. What is the best dd-wrt version to put on it. I looked in the hardware section for my router, but couldn't find it, so what is the procedure to flash this particular model.


Any help would be appreciated,

For stable versions, try 28211 or 27858.

As for flashing procedure, power off router, press and hold down reset button while powering on. The power LED should blink slowly. The router should now be in the cfe miniweb recovery.
Configure static IP 192.168.0.2 for your computer and connect to router LAN port with cable.
Ping the router at 192.168.0.1. You should get ttl=100.
Point browser (chrome is good) to 192.168.0.1 and upload the factory-to-ddwrt file you downloaded earlier. When the firmware has finished uploading, router will reboot and your browser will lose connection to the 192.168.0.1 site. It's OK because dd-wrt default IP is 192.168.1.1. Change IP of PC back to dhcp and point browser to 192.168.1.1. Should see the dd-wrt set password page.

In general, use the stock IP GUI access and reset defaults via GUI then flash:
ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/betas/2015/11-16-2015-r28211/dlink-dir890l/factory-to-ddwrt.bin

Then wait, and wait longer; after 10min (watch the LED actions to gauge later updates completion), go to 192.168.1.1 and you should get a DD-wrt splash screen to set a password. Do that, then go to Administration -> Factory Defaults -> Restore Factory Defaults...and reset again, then flash the dir890-webflash.bin file. Finally, set up everything as desired (Save saves the setting across pages; Apply applies the saved changes; crazy I know Smile.

For subsequent updates, read the 'New Build' threads to check for others' issues, and if you decide to update, use the 'After flashing, reset to' -Don't Reset- option, and use 'dir890-webflash.bin' in the desired build's dlink-dir890l directory.

Or listen to Ah-Pin-Kor, as they have that specific model.

Thanks for your help. Smile What's the difference between them, and when should I use one over the other?

There's some driver changes between them. If you want to see more detailed changelog, there's a sticky thread by KrypteX at the top of this forum.
Try 28211 first. If you encounter some problem, then try 27858 to see if they go away.

Thanks again. Wink I'll have the router by tomorrow night and will let you know how it turns out (by Wednesday if not sooner).

Didn't go very well. Sad Flashed 28211 a few times but never could get WAN connectivity. I had taken screenshots of my old settings, but it was confusing going from a Linksys WRT54G/GL/GS running dd-wrt v24-sp2 (08/12/10) std To the D-Link DIR 890L. Running on stock firmware for now until I can get this figured out.

Kind of in the same boat. Got the 890L on the Black Friday sale here. Will do the flashing to DD-WRT later today or maybe tomorrow.
Read somewhere that it is best to use the version listed in the database (26653) first and once that is done update to one of the newer versions. I might go for that approach. Will post here once I'm done for future reference to others.

Well that worked just fine. Smile I now have build 28397 in mine. Might move on to a newer one later. Anyone have ideas on how high one can go on the TX Power and still be safe from cooking the router? I am not having the best reception in all of my flat Sad

It's the same for me.
The 2 USB LEDs at the bottom do work if you enable USB core and sharing so it's just the wireless LEDs that don't turn on. They do work if you manually issue gpio commands though.

From my own trial-and-error:

Code:

For power & wan LED, need 2 ports to set the colour
e.g. to turn power LED white:
gpio disable 0
gpio enable  2

----------------------------------------

0/2 - Power LED

               2 enable     2 disable
0 enable         off          red
0 disable       white        orange

----------------------------------------

1/3 - WAN LED

               3 enable     3 disable
1 enable         off          red
1 disable       white        orange

----------------------------------------

13 - 2.4GHz

gpio enable  13 - off
gpio disable 13 - white

----------------------------------------

14 - 5 GHz

gpio enable  14 - off
gpio disable 14 - white

----------------------------------------

15 - USB 2.0

gpio enable  15 - off
gpio disable 15 - white

----------------------------------------

8 - USB 3.0

gpio enable  8 - off
gpio disable 8 - white
