Model : TL-MR3020
Hardware Version : Not Clear
Firmware Version :
I have installed a mini router type MR3020.I have set it up to WISP mode in order to get wifi signal from my main router and be able to deliver wifi to other devices The main router is working fine and I can access internet with no problem.However, the mini router, which detects the main router, is unable to supply internet connectivity. The ip addresses in teh WAN part under network is zero. Though I tried many times to renew the ip address I was not able to get a valid IP address.

Possible to use a mobile via the usb connection on a TL-MR3020. The reason being is that my mobile data plan allows unlimited tethering through my phone...yet when I place the sim from the phone in the usb modem I get blocked by the provider stating that the sim can only be used in a mobile phone. Mobile data plans in the UK are very expensive and you get very little for your money.

I set my TL-MR3020 to AP to act as a repeater to boost my wifi signal in the living.My TL-MR3020 is able to ping the main router but there is no internet access (no Internet light) on the TL-MR3020 . The main router ip is 192.168.1.1 and TL-MR3020 IS 192.168.254.0I followed exactly the instructions on how to configure the TL-MR3020 from TP-Link website and everything seems ok except no internet

I'm a court reporter trying to set up a connection between my laptop and my court reporting machine, which has built in wifi capabilities. My court house has public wifi but there is always some interference which causes transmission between my laptop and machine to freeze. I was told I could create my "own wifi" between my machine and laptop if i bought a router. is this possible with this hardware?
set up my router. Trying to set up my 3G modem with TP-Link MR3020.
Tried troubleshooting to find out where it went wrong and just couldn't figure out. Just tried disabling the wireless security and *poof* I'm able to connect to the Internet. Right after setting up the Network Key, I can't connect to the Intertnet via my router.
Here are the datas.

is it at all possible to lock a 2G/3G-Stick to 2G or 3G with the TL-MR3020 (e.g. if the desired network (2G or 3G) strength is low)? If not, this would be a useful feature for upcoming firmware versions

I'm a court reporter trying to set up a connection between my laptop and my court reporting machine, which has built in wifi capabilities. My court house has public wifi but there is always some interference which causes transmission between my laptop and machine to freeze. I was told I could create my "own wifi" between my machine and laptop if i bought a router. is this possible with this hardware?I don't need the internet or want an internet connection. I have the internal modem in my laptop. I just want to provide a connection between my laptop and writing machine wirelessly. That is, data being sent back and forth between the two. (Like your headset and smartphone connected with Buetooth). I can use the Bluetooth method to connect the two, but I opted for wireless connection because Bluetooth still can have some interference when attorneys come in the courthouse building with a Blackberry smartphone. I heard this router will provide a secured, private wifi connection between my laptop and machine.It doesn't say anywhere in the instructions that how to do this or I just don't know which method to use this router for what I want to do. Is it WISP, AP or BRIDGE, etc...?
Region : Australia Model : TL-MR3420 Hardware Version : V2 ISP : Optus, Telstra
Whilst the MR3420 V2 is sold as a 4G usb router, it appears that it does not support many usb 4G devices.In Australia we currently have the Seirra 320u, ZTE MF821 (100Mbps Cat 3) and Huawei E3276 (150Mbps Cat 4)whilst the V2 supports the first two (not the E3276), it has one major failure!It does not work at full 4G speeds.
The V2 does not appear to allow download speeds in excess of 25Mbps or uploads much greater than 2Mbps. This occurs on fast 3G and 4G networks.The throttled speed is apparently due to slow modem protocols deployed in the router. High protocol overheads mean it cannot 'shuffle data' very fast.We have developed working solutions using the Openwork platform that overcome these issues and provides speeds in excess of 70mbps.

I have problem to get pptp working. I setup pptp VPN server on my home router and configured pptp dialup on my laptop. If my laptop connect to internet directly, I am able to connect to home router via PPTP VPN. However, if I connect TL-MR3020 to internet(wired) and then connect my laptop to TL-MR3020 wirelessly, I can browse internet without problem. The problem is I cannot connect to home router via PPTP VPN any more. I believe the problem is on TL-MR3020.
Region : UnitedStates Model : TL-MR3020 Hardware Version : V1 Firmware Version : ISP : Virgin Mobile with MC760 antenna
In remote areas, I use Virgin-Mobile's MC760 Broadband2Go antenna to provide Broadband to my netbook. This ISP service requires that you "sign in" with username and password to initialize the BB transmission. I would like to use my TL-MR3020 to host the Virgin-Mobile's Broadband2Go MC760 antenna to provide a wireless hotspot, instead of the hardwired direct-computer connection I have. I've gone thru the MR3020 quick setup with the MC760 but been unable to get it to connect. The 3020 is putting out the wireless signal...it's just not connected to my Virgin-Mobiles BB service...thus no www internet tie. how to use the MR3020 with Virgin-Mobile's MC760 (3G/4G) Broadband2Go antenna?

I bought this device yesterday, I am using this device with BSNL's EVDO (cdma network).It detects my modem fine, and it connects fine, and I can browse.Exactly at 50th min(few seconds difference), my net gets disconnected.I have tried all modes, connect manually, automatically, on demand -- nothing solves the concern.Changed idle timeout to 0.The device when connected directly works fine for more than 12 hours.Updated firmware to the latest 3.14.2 Build 120817 Rel.55520n.Tried Resetting the Router to factory defaults and configured again.Tried all troubleshooting steps from FAQ as in change it to WEP security, connect manually, idle timeout setting.Most importantly, tried creating a BIN file using USB sniffer and used it, even then its the same issue.

I am using the Router in 3G/4G mode, with WAN only (PPPOE) enabled. I have set a personal SSID in the Wireless > Wireless Settings > Wireless Network Name field.
I do not see the particular SSID on my computer, instead on every reboot / restart of the device a random SSID is generated. see attached screenshot. I can connect and everything works well, but I have to enter the WPA key after each reboot.

when visiting Switzerland and Italy with my German SIM card I noticed that roaming is not working very good with the TL-MR3020. The reason is that the internet provider needs to be set in the config, in my case to o2 Germany.When I travel with this SIM card to another country, I roam into other networks.As I cannot what provider is currently active (as o2 has contracts with almost every provider outside Germany) and even if I could see it I have to adjust the settings in the config if anything changes, the satisfaction effect on this trip was not very good.
Also I noticed that sometimes (only sometimes) the setting resetted itself to o2 Germany when unplugging the device, this added some extra negative satisfaction to everything.In my understanding the router should have an auto detection for the currently active network and auto setup for the dialin parameters and everything else. Like every smartphone on the planet. Maybe you can also add a setting where you can enable or disable data roaming to save people money if they do not have a international data option booked.
I'm using a 3020 to bridge 3/4G to the ethernet port on my computer. Things work fine until I also join wireless hosts (like an iPhone or iPad). The routing of traffic to both the ethernet and wireless hosts seems to cause the 3/4G router to lose the signal and disconnect all hosts. I'm using a Verizon LG USB wifi device that is on the compatible list of 3/4G devices. I'm using the latest version of the firmware on the 3020 (I believe the date is Sep 2012).
Region : Turkey Model : TL-MR3020 Hardware Version : Not Clear Firmware Version : (120817) ISP : turkcell
I have recently purchased the portable TP link 3020 which is a great solution for me in order to get wifi for multiple users till I get through the long process of getting ADSL in Turkey.The thing is that the 3G bundle Turkcell provided me with is not identified by the modem, so I looked it up on the internet and I found out that I needed to add the bin of the bundle, I searched within the list published on TPLINK website but without any luck.... finally I found the bin I was looking for in another country list... mine is Huawei E353 and the one I found is Huawei E353s2. Anyway I added the bin and still not luck identifying the bundle, I finally resorted to upgrade the firmware which I hate because I always worry of the bad consequence of failure, and unfortunately I was right! Once I upgraded the firmware, I couldn't get connected to the router, it keeps asking me for the key, but without any success! I tried hardware reset by holding the WPS button for 5 seconds as suggested in the manual, but any further success!

My Huawei E3231 dongle gives me a strong signal and stable connection and rarely loses connecton when plugged directly into my laptop. In the router, connection duration only lasts, fairly consistently, about 30 minutes. 3 UK base station is in sight and only about 90metres away. I have to power off/on the router and turn off/on the wireless button on the laptop to restore connection. i've tried setting idle times etc and other things in the router settings but no joy. The OS is W7 Home Premium SP1.
When installing the DIR-615, router installs, but error msg that there is no internet connection. SmartConnect is plugged into the WAN and I have tried the ethernet cable to the computer in spots 1 & 2. Good connection when SmartConnect modem is connected to computer directly.615's Internet indicator will turn green for a while, usually less than a minute or two, then flashes, then may actually cause the routers status indicator to flash off, then back on. Like a reset.

i just bought this router and upgraded the firmware. but i cant seem to get Internet connection up and running. it says connected but its not. tried both 121106 and 121226 firmware, still the same. when i checked the connection it says DNS server not responding.
When i remove the login local from the line console i connect to console port and press enter it shows router prompt 2691Router> but i am unable to go to enable mode.If i telnet to router then i put username and pw then it goes straight to enable mode.
vty config is
line vty 0 4 exec-timeout 600 0 logging synchronous login local length 500 transport input telnet ssh escape-character 3
Any reasons why i can not go to enable mode by console?
I was provided with a new wireless modem from our internet service provider (the old modem was antiquated and needed updating). After this, i have been unable to connect to the internet on my laptop on a wireless basis. I can search for the modem via the usual means and seemingly connect, but when i am connected it states that i have 'Local Access' only and i am unable to access the internet at all. I am also unable to connect to the internet on a wireless basis when in safe mode.I am however, able to connect using a Ethernet cable from the modem.My laptop is fairly old but it is fine for our needs and thus i do not really want to change it unless totally necessary. I just wonder if it is something relatively simple that i am overlooking?My son also has a more modern laptop, and he tells me that he can use the internet via our new modem without any problems. Which would suggest there is nothing wrong with the modem.The operating system is Windows Vista, if that makes any difference.
I have just upgraded my network to the 802.11n standard, or at least am trying to do that. Im using a DIR-615 as Access Point and a DAP-1522 as bridge to cover the entire area.After having some trouble figuring out how to set up and connect the devices, i figure out that it might some other problem than my setup of the devices (The symptom was that the connection was ok, but then it seemed to be dropped, even though the DAP-1522 still displayed connected in the status page).
After reading what I could find about the DIR-615 and DAP-1522 in this forum and on the internet, I found a suggestion about changing the Wireless Mode from 802.11b/g/n to 802.11b/g, and after doing that everything works fine, its just not an upgrade anymore.I have fixed the channel to 10, just to check that it wasnt noise from other equipment. The symptoms are very reproducable, trying to connect wiin n-mode and bridge only works for 30-60 secs. Switching back to b/G mode and all is fine.
I am trying to setup a DIR-601 wireless router (Hardware Version: A1 Firmware Version : 1.00NA ) with my connection from Astound.I am able to connect to the internet from the cable modem (Motorola SURFboard SB5101) but I am unable to get it to work through the router. All the lights on the router look ok.When I look at the WAN status from the router setup page I see :
WAN Connection Type : DHCP Client Cable Status : Connected Network Status : Disconnected Connection Up Time : N/A
* I noted that the router did not show me the correct time. Is that normal ?I have even copied my laptop's MAC address but it did not work. I restarted the modem and the router a number of times but to no avail.
I currently have a DAP1522 in Bridge mode with a DIR655. I am only using the 2.4GHz G mode on my 655. In a few days I will be replacing the 655 with an 825. When I log into the 1522 I don't see any settings for Mode, Frequency or Width (while in Bridge mode). The page for wireless setup is blank except for the "Save Settings" button. When I look at the 655, it appears that the 1522 is connected (bridged) at 2.4 GHz G like I would expect. So, when I install the 825 how do I make it connect at 5GHz N or will that be automatic if my SSID on the N mode of the 825 matches SSID on the 1522?
I am not able to connect to any webpages in normal mode, even after restarting i still have the same problem [However it works in safe mode with networking]. The network connections show that it is connected and the signal strength is excellent. I then have to keep restarting the laptop like 3 to 4 times and it works. Its kind of frustrating to keep doing this all the time and besides i am scared by restarting the laptop so many time can harm it.
i recently signed up with a WISP, due to the fact that i now live in a rural area. the installation guy showed me how fast i would download at with a speakeasy.net test, that day i was getting 875KB/sec transfer rate, and i was happy. That only lasted for a few days after i agreed he install the Motorola wireless radio. now for the last week i have only gotten speeds up to 104KBsec. note: this is also a burstable connection. my main problem is that when downloading torrents i m only getting around 1KBsec down, during late nights i will get sometimes up to 400KBsec. does this sound like throttling, because he told me that he never throttles his connection and that i should never go below a 3 Mb/sec, or a i m have a issue on my end?
