DLink DIR-853 A3

flashed the encrypted file by kar200 and flashed the sysupgrade
why is the wifi only showing up to 9dBm(7mW)? is it a driver issue?
i have tried changing country codes to anything but still the same transmit power

@kar200 please answer my inquiries brother

anyone can provide the latest encrypted openwrt? all links in this thread seem expired. \

or please provide instructions how i can upgrade stock dir-853 A3 firmware to Openwrt (perhaps via ssh?)

thanks!

It seems like that's the reason, yes. Either way, I'm not sure if this router is capable is running a Node application.

@kar200 on a side note, I accidentally bricked my spare (same model) when trying to set it up as an access point. It is a soft-brick, as I seem to be able to boot into recovery mode and see the flashing blue power light. I set my client IP as 192.168.1.101, subnet mask as 255.255.255.0, and router gateway IP as 192.168.1.1. However, I can't seem to access the recovery UI or SSH.

Also, I noticed that your prior instructions differed from the OpenWrt wiki entry. Is there a special exception for this router?

Sorry guys a bit late with the replies

I have the same but I don't have the means (nor the knowledge) to check if it's really the power used by the router. It was talked about at some stage on github and there was a workaround to make it use the full rated power but I am not sure it made a difference).

Have you managed to find it? There is one on this thread you can then use the normal sysupgrade from the officail openwrt

Use the normal recovery methods and DO NOT use the mtd tool. If it's soft bricked you can hold the reset button AFTER the router has booted which should reset it to factory.

Otherwise there is a way to use SSH if you can login and I think the command is "first_boot"

You can read about it here. If you press the reset button while it's booting it should boot into failsafe. You need a static IP and connect to the first LAN port (try the others if it does not work).

Hi Could you also please send me the same. I have a4 and want to use it as wireless repeater

Hi There,
I own exo dir-1360 model, It seem this model as exactly dir-853 a3 model.
can i flash directly with openwrt firmware to this unit.
one more thing what is the console password this unit, i'am trying to access but no joy.
Here is the log for this unit

Never mind, I'm flashing dir-853 a3 openwrt rc6 firmware and it's work..
The wireless signal and bandwidth also good with this firmware.

One more thing.. USB led always light even no usb devices in usb port.. But for now I'm using for routing and AP only.

Update : Only 5GHZ work, 2.4GHZ not present..

FYI V22.03.0 Just out there is a wifi driver update

Is it? Will try new update... Thanks Lucky1

Hi @jan1677

Yeah the haddware is exactly the same so it should work with no issues.

For the wireless have a look at previous posts about how to setup the wireless cards correctly with DBDC. Also make sure you use the latest version (i have not tested myself).

For the USB i have to admit i did not notice the light and thought i defined the correcr gpio in the DTS (I probably didnt). I will try and find the router somehwere at home and test again with the latest version.

@Lucky1 thanks for the heads up. I didnt know the day finally arrived!

Hi @kar200,

Hope you are doing well. I also have DIR-853 A3 unit and downloaded the new release from openwrt but unfortunately unable to flash it using stock firmware GUI. Sorry for not going through whole thread but is there any limitaion for upgrade like encryption. So, what are my options here how do I flash openwrt ? any help regarding this would be highly appriciated. Thanks !

EDIT: I couldnt bear using stock firmware and decided to go through the thread and found encrypted openwrt image Thanks to @kar200 , after flashing with enc.bin I upgraded using new release and everything seems stable no issues so far except 5ghz radio is capped to only 9dBm but in 2.4G I am able to go as high as 25dBm.

Hi kar200, Thanks for the feedback. Yup everything seem stable with new 22.03.0 update in dir-1360 except those usb light.
Thanks for the firmware

Do you mind reposting the link you found please or upload it somewhere for future users here to find it quickly? Unfortunately I am not the main poster on this thread so I cannot change the first thread.

Also I don't know how to check if the 9dbm is just a printed value or if it is really capped at that power. It was already mentionned by someone on github but it seems it has not been fixed.

Good to hear it is working. I will try from my side and let you know how it goes.

Here is the link I used to download encryted image. I used this image for first time flash via stock GUI.
openwrt-21.02.0-rc2-ramips-mt7621-dlink_dir-853-a3-squashfs-factory-enc.bin

I just created an account to say THANK YOU and GOD BLESS YOU!
I had the same router (A3) from my previous ISP (Etisalat) from which my subscription had expired.
My next apartment neighbour was willing to share his WiFi but it would only ever connect in one spot in the kitchen of my Apartment.
Im complete newbie but did some thinking and then researched about whether i could use my not in use router as a Network card and then i learnt about bridging.
However due to the router being specifically assembled for my ISP they for some reason had the options hidden.
But after following your steps i was able to configure it and have a lot more peace lol.
Thanks a lot buddy.
(Btw im from Sharjah, UAE, and a friend or 2 seem to from around here too)

Hello Karim, is there any new update for the Padavan firmware, been using it for a while now it's working great but I guess the 5G network needs improvement also the USB feature causing the HDD to have some errors while attaching it to stream videos

Hi @hsaber ,

Unfortunately I don't think there will be any update to the padavan firmware. The source code I used has not been update for a long time so it wont produce a different firmware plus I do not use the device anymore.

I'm confused about a small thing. Latest release seem to be available or this device, so is it enough to use that image or is it necessary the .enc shared on this thread first? This device needs a wiki page.
