    Default Connecting SmartAX MT882 to TP-Link WR642G

    Hello,

    I bought the TP-Link WR642G wireless router to connect it to my existing Huawei SmartAX MT882 modem.

    I wired up the connections okay, but can not get the router to connect to the internet.

    Some of the things I did while connecting the router:

    I chose PPPoE as connection type, keyed in the login & password provided by the ISP.

    I assigned the router IP address at 192.168.1.3

    I tried setting TCP/IP settings to "detect automatically" as well as with specific gateway and DNS settings (as provided by BSNL).

    But with none of these methods could i successfully connect to the internet.

    Note that I never tried the wireless yet. I am still trying the wired (LAN)connections.

    thanks in advance for some help.

    best regards
    Nagendra

    Firstly decide which one device u need to connect to the internet. Either the wireless router or the wired router.

    U can configure the wired router to connect to the internet, just like u used to do in pppoe mode. Connect the wired and wireless devices using a cable.Then disable DHCP on the wireless router. The wireless router will act like a hub in such cases and u can connect multiple pcs.

    Note that the cable connecting both devices should be crossover cable.

    Hi again,

    thank you for the information.

    I am trying to assimilate the info at all the links but struggling with a few basic pieces of configuration i need to get right.

    let me ask you all the questions:

    1. On the modem (MT 882), do i need to change any settings to make it work with the router?
    - first. do i need to change the WAN type? (presently it is PPP and Connection type PPPoE)? Do i need to change it to RFC2684Bridged or RFC2684Routed?

    - second. the DHCP settings on my modem are:
    DHCP Server Enabled
    Starting IP Address 192 . 168 . 1 .
    Ending IP Address 192 . 168 . 1 .

    Does any of this need a change? Esp do i leave DHCP enabled on the router?

    2. On the Wireless router (WR642G), do i need to change the below settings?
    - Do I disable or enable DHCP?
    - What is a good IP address to assign to it? (say 192.168.2.1)?

    Thanks
    Nagendra

    The WAN type present in 882 is showing the technical details of your BSNL connection. No need to tamper with it as your connectivity to BSNL will be affected.

    If u want to connect the wireless router to the wired router and to make the wireless router act as a hub, u need to disable DHCP on the wireless router. IP address should be assigned manually to each and everyone of the PCs connected to the wireless router.

    If the DHCP is disabled on wireless router the third question doesnt crop up.

    IP address of 882 must be 192.168.1.1
    IP address of WR must be 192.168.1.2
    IP address(es) of PCs connected to WR must be 192.168.1.3, 192.168.1.4 etc etc

    Please post if the doubts are still present.

    Hello again,

    I haven't fixed it yet.

    Let me present to you the settings I observe and let you review them and find any trouble with them.

    The WR settings are as below:
    DHCP Settings
    DHCP Server: Disable
    Start IP Address: 192.168.1.3
    End IP Address: 192.168.1.199
    Default Gateway: (optional)
    Default Domain: (optional)
    Primary DNS: (optional)
    Secondary DNS: (optional)

    Router Status
    Firmware Version: 3.7.2 Build 071123 Rel.38867n
    Hardware Version: WR641G/642G v3 08118989

    LAN
    IP Address: 192.168.1.2
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

    Wireless
    Wireless Radio: Enabled
    Name (SSID): TP-LINK
    Channel: 6
    Mode: 108Mbps (Dynamic)
    MAC Address: 00-1D-0F-CC-55-DC
    IP Address: 192.168.1.2

    WAN
    IP Address: 0.0.0.0 PPPoE
    Subnet Mask: 0.0.0.0
    Default Gateway: 0.0.0.0
    DNS Server: 0.0.0.0 , 0.0.0.0

    Does this point to any configuration errors?

    Thanks again.

    No, all the mentioned values are from the WR. In fact, if I connect the WR, I am no longer able to ping the MT. that is, i can not ping 192.168.1.1 anymore.

    The MT 882 if connected directly to the laptop, the laptop is connecting to the internet.

    Which settings of the MT 882 would you like to observe?

    i can post them right away.

    Sorry for the delay in replay, power failure in here. Please answer the following queries.

    1) What is the purpose of WR? U want to access net utilizing wifi in laptop?

    2) How many PCs or laptops are involved?
