Please add support for the D-Link DIR-868L. Dual core Arm cpu's in this thing. This router is amazing and would be even better with DD-WRT. Thanks.

I second that and have one that I'm willing to test any beta versions on. Hell of a router that's crippled by DLinks horrible firmware.

Been using the 868L for the past week. Happier with it than I was with my Asus N66U and WD N900. Range isn't as great as the Asus, but all of our iPhones and iPads work better (read: no constant disconnects) with the 868L.

I don't think it's going to get DD-WRT support unless someone sends in an 868L.

It is in the pipeline to get dd-wrt support.

I'm ordering one of these today. They've gotten good reviews w/o DD-WRT firmware - can't wait to see what this looks like once there is DD-WRT support.

Gave that build a shot. It's functional and reasonably stable for such early days at least.

Wireless signal isn't great (possibly because it seems to be forced on to Ch.36) and it claims the CPU is at 80°C (which I hope is inaccurate) but seemed to work fine.

I have not yet purchased a dir-868l router and I read on another post a brainslayer comment that 11ac works best "line of sight" and has problems even going through drywall walls in homes. Can someone who is using a dir-868l comment on this for me before my decision to purchase one. Thanks!

The reason for this is, that AC operates in 5Ghz, the higher the frequency the faster it gets absorbed, that why 5ghz is bad if you have any abject between two units (e.g. client and router). Thus if you need range you will use 2.4Ghz if you need fast speed within one room you can use 5Ghz

Any chance this firmware will support the DIR-868's cousin, the DIR-860L? The chipsets seem to be in the same series of Broadcom and the only difference between the two is the 860L is AC1200.

Thanks!

My application is this. I need to use a StarTech Ethernet VGA to IP adapter (IPUSB2VGA) to send computer video from one end of a church to the other to a large screen monitor. I can mount the DIR-868L's high enough to make it line-of-sight with humans not being in the way. Distance is about 35 meters. Do you think I can get close to gigabit speeds at that distance with dd-wrt build 22118 with one unit being an AP and the other unit as a client? Any ideas anyone?
