Can I know what kind of switch u use?

Wah didnt know got such thread... thumbs up to TS and all contributors...

I have 1 questioned. i emailed tech support but still cant resolve.

I have been on my 2nd recontract and got another 868L modem. Was thinking of improving my home network.

So this is my set up based on a new BTO with patch converted to LAN.
Ont -> 868L -> Switch -> 4 (Living, 2 bedroom, Master)

Ive added another 868L into the 2nd bedroom as it is more centralized. Wifi and wired port all working no issue. Except i really want to use the USB panel of the 2nd 868L to connect to my printer so it can be 'wireless' as in can print from any device connected to the whole house network.

I googled on the making of a port and etc but still cannot. Seems the router cant detect my printer. Any gurus out there can help? Thanks in advance!

The 1.09SHC is like putting steriods on the DIR-868L.

Wifi signal is stronger , even when set to LOW.

LAN speed also faster. Previously only get 700+ mbps now 800+ mbps .
Thanks for sharing. Gonna update....

guys... my router died after 1+ years and now the replacement router is facing the intermittent connection (cannot resolve DNS) issue. Running on 1.09SHC.. anyone facing the same issue? quite pissed alr. wasting my time calling in to Dlink support 3 times.

Anyone knows if Starhub can do on-site router replacement for free? it is their problem and i dun wanna pay any delivery or service fee. also sick of going back to Dlink service centre

should i call SH instead?

Your Dir-868L comes with a 3 years warranty.
Write down the symptom on a big white sticker/post it note and paste is on the router
Bring it down to the Dlink Service Centre to do a 1-to-1 exchange.
No question asked.

Starhub won't delivery you a replacement for free lah. To them once the contract is sign, its your problem. You die die have to make a trip down to Synergy building.

Last time what I do for the intermitten disconnection issue is to perform the 3 steps below
1. hard reset (poke the reset button and hold until the globe LED turn AMBER)
2. router page -> tools -> system -> restore factory default
3. configure dns & mtu first. the rest later than do.

But nowadays don't face it anymore.

Hi Phumba, where you get this 1.02SHC. ?
I don't have this version.
So far, if i my memory didn't fail me, all the previous version I used before, they have the access point settings.

Tungsten 2 - my other half reports better 'performance' on her Note3. Less laggy and more reliable connection.

I still dont believe it... 😂😂

It looks like your issue and mine are the same. I RMA both my router. Now running smooth.

I suspect either firmware issue or starhub network engineer changes something. Else cannot be 1st router used for 2 years no issue , suddenly 2nd contract this kind of issue pops up.
eh sialat.. same as me.. 2 years with the router no issue.. after recontract start to have disconnecting issue.. call the customer service also useless.. end up change to new router that they give during the second year recontract and problem solved.

instead of using google dns.. I ran the namebench utilities to benchmark the nearest (auto-search) DNS servers..

It seems like the best DNS was the former Cyberway DNS.
And I select my fallback secondary DNS as google DNS.

I did not suffer any DNS or connection outages which many talking about..
