D-Link DIR-816L  (Ver.B1)

After the previous DIR-820L-A1DIR-850L-A1 test units, I was commenting/suggesting certain things to D-Link Malaysia sales person with regards to routers for UniFi.  I was surprised recently they wrote UniFi custom firmware (3 digits VLANs @ ports) on another RealTek SoC, the DIR-816L-B1--> this time a budget DualBand AC750 small size mydlink Cloud Router with 2 external antenna, even comes with a USB2 port, nice Smile

Thanks to D-Link Malaysia again for the test unit, glad to see D-Link is getting more aggressive to provide more after-market routers optoin for UniFi users Laughing

UniFi Connection - OK!!

Custom FW works well on both Vlan 500 (internet) & 600 (IPTV), in fact this is the 2nd FW released already, nice job D-Link Smile

 IPv6 works right out of the box Kiss
