Why not try 1.21SHC.
All the 4 modes are there
1. Router mode
2. Wireless AP
3. Wireless Bridge
4. Wireless Repeater Extender

Yes, as Tungsten2 stated, go to recovery mode.

the recovery mode as follow:

1. Plug the Ethernet cable that connects your computer, that was plugged into one of the LAN ports,
2. Setup your PC with static IP - ex: 192.168.0.2 (different from 192.168.0.1)
3. Make sure the PC has the new firmware
4. Unplug the power
5. Hold the reset button for 3~5 seconds and re plug the power WITHOUT RELEASING THE RESET BUTTON.
6.Open a web browser to 192.168.0.1 and then you should see EMERGENCY FLASHING page then click browse/upload locate the file and click UPLOAD FIRMWARE NOW

7. You should see a SUCCSESS page, If you don’t then re do steps 2-6

When anyone does this procedure, one thing to take note.

One can literally flash any file as the firmware (unlike flashing via DLink firmware which however, is limited to newer version than the installed firmware, but it does do some verifying of the firmware), so make sure u select the proper firmware or there is the risk of bricking the router.

Thanks, All.

Tried the steps exactly and it works.

Previously didn't follow the steps exactly and didn't get into recovery mode.

Dear giants_lee sir (",) after having used both versions 1.21 (for StarHub users) and 1.20beta (for the rest of the world), would you review or recommend which version? Just would like to know how you feel about both versions. Thank ü.

The recommended version are either 1.21 or 1.09 for Starhub customer.

Please do download > DIR-868L Firmware

Do read the instruction carefully as there are steps to follow to update to 1.21 version.

Edit/ Note:
Version 1.21 is for all.
V1.20 BETA not recommended since 1.21 is out.

Hi, I used v1.21 cos I need to use it as a wireless AP. v1.20 does not have the configuration option to do it like v1.21 easily.
