Hey guys, wondering if I just flash the regular firmware of the DIR-890L in the dd-wrt upgrade section to go back to stock. DD-WRT for some reason has killed my 2.4ghz wireless connection. Every time I try to connect to it from my phone or computer, it doesn't issue an IP and just fails. I have to use my 5ghz connection.

The original firmware is found here: https://support.dlink.com/ProductInfo.aspx?m=DIR-890L%2fR

The DD-wrt firmware I tried to use is here:
https://dd-wrt.com/support/other-downloads/?path=betas%2F2019%2F03-11-2019-r39144%2Fdlink-dir890l%2F

I updated from a January build where the 2.4ghz channel was buggy and slow, and now it doesn't work at all. It seemed to relatively work on a November build before, but I have forgotten what build that was. This router seemed to run better on stock.

Got it, thanks. Shame I couldn't get the 2.4ghz band to work.

You should try Kong's builds (use the R8000 build for your DIR-890L).

Had similar issue on a different hardware with DD-WRT.
Below command played the trick and resolved the issue in my case:

Administration/Management/Commands Command Shell-->type
erase nvram

Is R8000 still the one to use for this router? I see that there is also an R8500.

Yes, still R8000.
R8500 should not be used for this model. It has totally different hardware.
