Hi

I want to get a black one but can't find anyone that sells it. Challenger only has red.

Any advice?

lol weird. during the it show, they said all the red ones were sold out, which is why they were only selling the blacks even tho i was considering getting a red one

Was it D-Link themselves who sold at the IT show or was it through Challenger?

I got someone to check stock for me on the Challenger system and he only found 3 (all red).

Thanks

btw, their response if they will officially support vlan (without the use of dd-wrt):

Good day. We apologize for the inconvenience. The DIR-890L/R is designed for a home environment. We cannot say for certain if the 802.1Q Protocol (VLAN) will be an added feature to this device in the future. If you would like to use VLAN capable routers, youcan contact the Business Class Pre0-Sales department at 1-800-326-1688 ext 5495
