Oic, thanks for the update, so it show thar Dlink staff are sleeping, making a typo in the date but what about the fail update when we try to upgrade it from either v1.09SHC or v1.20 (beta), fail to upload v1.21SHC firmware. I think the file itself is corrupt.
Haha ... if they can make mistake in typo then there could be mistake in wrong file.

How many download site does Dlink have? Can't they consolidate into one standardized website that support firmware update, LOL. They are really a total mess compare to ASUS firmware download site.

1. http://www.dlink.com.sg/starhub/DIR-868L.html
2. http://www.dlink.com.sg/dir-868l/#firmware
3. http://support.dlink.com/ProductInfo.aspx?m=DIR-868L
4. ftp://ftp2.dlink.com/
Since they had given the link officially in the online conversation, then i would say the link #1 is the correct one.

As there was a previous link which was in the same format, that i had was broken and so this link could be the latest updated.

As according to link #3 above, that firmware is 1.20B01 BETA which dated 02/28/2018 which you had updated without any problem.

So i guess the version 1.21 is still pending.
More like in testing mode for their testers, if any, with some sort of instruction on how to update or any additional detail required.
This is base on what the mentioned as R&D team that may used that website for their own purpose.
As there could be due to bug or something they did not indicated.
Anyway it may not be ready for users to update yet, i guess...

Have just downloaded fully working "DIR868LA1_FW121SHC.zip" file, and tried the 2-steps updates: after applying the first file "DIR868LA1_FW110SHC.bin", my firmware still remains as my recently updated version "1.20 Tue 28 Nov 2017". Then i tried applying the second file "DIR868LA1_FW121SHC.bin", the message "Firmware Upload Fail" shows up.

i read the PDF documents carefully again, and realised that "Firmware: v1.20B01 BETA" dated "February 28, 2018" is actually newer than the one released for StarHub's "Firmware:FWv1.21SHC" dated "2017/12/19". Anyway, i have no problem with my router/network.

So I downloaded firmware ver 1.21 from http://www.dlink.com.sg/starhub/DIR-868L.html. Uploaded 1.10 and rebooted ok. Uploaded 1.21, message "firmware upload fail" shows up, no countdown clock... but the router rebooted and then the config page version showed 1.21SHC!!

Current Firmware Version : 1.21SHC
Current Firmware Time : 02/02/2018 15:25:00

Fingers became itchy - so tried to see if can downgrade firmware - when reboot still 1.21SHC
(earlier firmware versions can upgrade/downgrade as desired)
Wondering if it is really 1.21SHC - maybe the version number only got upgraded..
Anyway no problem surfing so far....
