Got this router recently to play, since I'm already using DIR-865L as my primary router, so quite lazy to swap it at this stage. Since both are AC router, so I play the bridge mode to provide access to my computers, which is currently using Fast Ethernet (100Mbps - converted from very old phone lines).
Primary router: DIR-865L (firmware 1.06SHC)
Wireless bridge: DIR-868L (firmware 1.07), AC 5Ghz... roughly 2 walls & 15m apart
Starhub Fibre 300Mbps
Initial speedtest looks promising:
Download speed: Range from high 190Mbps to 250Mbps
Upload speed: Consistently above 290Mbps
P/S: A definite speed "upgrade" from my old setup on relying on my phone line (fast ethernet, capped at 100Mbps - more like 90+Mbps)
I have IPv6 enable, initially without introducing DIR-868L a few pages do freeze randomly (need to refresh browser, but the occurence has been reducing, I'd say fairly stable but not 100%.
But after using 868L, i noticed the old problem is back, pages freeze or images don't load. Tested with using my old setup on one computer (fast ethernet), and on 868L bridge mode. So I can fairly confirm the problem is with 868L. Will need to monitor a few more days to be conclusive (hopefully it get better over time, like the 865L)
