Hi all! I have a problem with TP-LINK mr3020 rev 1.9 portable router and its default gateway. I was configured it with static default gateway 192.168.0.1 but I didnt wait till the end of saving that configuration and plug the power off. I have used it before for picking internet connection from my mobile phone hotspot and that works like before but I cannot access to router settings over default gateway 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1. If I connect it with ethernet to my pc and type ipconfig I get the screen where it says it dont read default gateway IP adress. There is ipv4 adress which isnt accessible through internet browser, subnet mask is 255.255.0.0 I dont know what to do now?
What do you mean I dont have ethernet port in the LAN? The router is connected to PC over ethernet cable and I cannot enter in its settings. None of default gateway IP adresses are working. Im looking for a way to reset it. IPconfig in CMD isnt reading the default gateway IP.
I will give you info you want to know just tell me which info exactly do you need?
How to setup the router when it is impossible (for me) to enter in router settings? I can enter to failsafe mode with pressing router wps/reset key but cannot get in. I tried to get in by Putty telnet and SSH but I cant. If I put the IP adress 192.168.0.1 in web browser there is LuCI - Lua Configuration Interface showing for a second and dissapears ant I get message that it is unreachable or cant open.
First I changed accidently the settings to DHCP client mode and after that I couldnt get into router untill I connected it to home router ethernet port which assigned him IP adress which I used to enter settings. After that I changed back from dhcp client mode to static ipv4 and put default gateway to 192.168.0.1 and now router is hanging obviously not letting me in.
No I did not
I performed it exactly as I said before and I removed power because router was saving new settings for a long time 2-3 minutes which wasnt the case before so I thought that new settings are applied and I dont have to wait anymore.
Then, you'll need to borrow a router and plug a OpenWrt LAN port to it, use another LAN port on the Windows PC to access it at the IP assigned by the borrowed router. Then change LAN back to Statically Addressed.
You don't need a default gateway for the experiment. I clearly noted:
I'm not sure why you're fixated on the concept a "default gateway IP" before you even setup your router - you can't go to a WAN until you can reach LAN.
Can I use my home router for that? I have some SpeedPort router. In fact I have do that at first, my home router assigned IP to TP-link and I accessed it through that IP adress and set back to static and the rest you know what happened.
Ok, one more thing about ethernet settings, I've connected TP-LINK with ethernet on PC and changed IP to those two IP adresses you suggested and I could not access to TP-LINK via internet browser. Now I will try to connect my notebook and TP-link to home router and see if it is getting IP adress,
Do I have to connect my notebook to home router over ethernet or I can keep it connected over WLAN? Thats how I gain access at first, TP-link was connected to LAN port in home router by wire and notebook was connected by wifi, I went to home network connected device list found the TP-link and used its IP adress to access it.
Not sure about your question. This seems like a wireless configuration inquiry. If so, make another (properly titled) post. If you reset the OpenWrt to defaults, you will have to reconfigure your WiFi.
If your problem is solved, feel free to mark the relevant post as the solution; and edit the title to add "[SOLVED]" to the beginning (click the pencil behind the topic).
you missunderstood me I didnt solved the problem yet. I plugged TP-link to LAN 1 port, and my notebook to LAN 2 port. TP-link is shown on device list connected with network cable with assigned IP 192.168.1.8 (I confirmed that by clicking on that device and see its MAC adress) but it is not accessible. If I try to access it with that IP ower internet browser it says that IP isnt reachable. What to do now?
No, I cant SSH to it (tried with putty) neither can ping it. The router isnt showed on the list when I connect it with cable he appears when I plug it off and on and after 2 seconds his IP adress is grayed out and I cant access it by any way.
