if coming from version 1.10 or higher, you need to flash down to 1.04 first.

this is included in the 1.10 firmware from D-Link's support website. the file name should be DIR878A1_FW104B05_Middle_FW_Unencrypt.bin


Hi,

where i can find DIR878A1_FW104B05_Middle_FW_Unencrypt?

You can click HERE

NB: That particular recovery method did not work in my case. Method that worked for me was to crash recover with the original shipped firmware.

Hi all.

I just installed the latest build 40559 from the download section on my newly acquired DIR-878 A1
It seems to be working really bad. Both 2.4G and 5G are constantly disconnecting on the end devices. I've looked through this and other threads, but it is not clear to me, which actual firmware version I should use and what are caveats for this specific HW. There are also multiple references to 882 "Broly" FW but it's not clear to me if it is better (and how) and can it be flashed directly on 878 device

Can someone be so kind and clarify what version should I use?

Thanks

All I am looking for is to get this device running as AP with DFS channels enabled on 5G

DIR-878/882 is actual still in happy testing state Laughing Last working and stable release seem to be r39296, the last one with kernel v3 Cool

Just give it a short new try on r40932 from ground with reset to factory default. My laptop with intel chipset seem to connect fine over WiFi, but IOS devices still have problems to connect. Better say, nearly no chance to connect! Rolling Eyes
