DD-WRT vs Factory default ROM on D-link DIR-880L

I bought D-Link DIR-880L last year. One of the features of it is DD-WRT compatible.

The version I downloaded is DD-WRT v3.0-r30432 std.

Based on the forum, it said 30432 is the working version for DIR-880L.

D-Link DIR-880L Router

DIR-880L Content

I bought a new Router from Costco two months ago. D-Link DIR-880L Dual Band Router AC1900. It replaced my old DIR-850L.

The most important reason, which makes me decide to buy it, is the price, $99.97. The current market price of it is $159.99 at NCIX or $189.99 at Dell.ca today.

The second important reason is that it is AC1900.

Let me show you the difference between AC1200 and AC1900

AC1200: 300 + 867

AC1900: 600 + 1300

There is a chart compared DIR-850L with DIR-880L side by side.
