I'm using parental controls to block all devices in the house from using tumblr. I cannot do this at a device by device level as it is being used on iphones/androids, laptops and desktops.Unfortunately, the way that tumblr works is that it use many URLs for the different pages people set up so it is not just a case of blocking url... - so I'm struggling to work out if I can do this via URL blocking on the router settings. How to do this at router level.

How to successfully get VPN passthrough working with the W8960N?
I have the W8960N providing internet to local device. I want to setup a second router, TP-Link 1043ND with WW-DRT and PPTP set up to provide a separate access point for PPTP tunnelling to VPN servers outside of the UK. HideMyAss are providing VPN servers I wish to connect to.
I have followed instruction to set up both routers but would like to know if I am missing something. First router 192.168.1.1 is basically untouched but with ports under NAT added: ports 1723 and 47 for my second router at local IP 192.168.1.111 Second router is set up according to [URL].
I know VPN work via just my first router. I can tunnel through using an Android tablet and connect to any HMA VPN server without changing anything on the 8960N.

Just got myself a new Modem/Router (TD-W8960N), and it wasn't until I had it all up and running that I realised it didn't have USB port on the back.Anyways, I was wondering how I could go about fixing this? I stumbled upon this (TP-Link TD-8817) on Amazon and wasn't sure if I could attach this to it in bridged mode or something. This has the USB socket I need. If this was all I needed, how do they connect together? I have a BT connection btw.Also, I have a Justop Android 4.0 TV Box (media player). Would this be able to see the HDD for streaming movies.

First a bit of background. At the end of December, my centurylink modem finally had enough problems with disconnects(was 6 or 7 years old), and Centurylink sent out a new router/modem. The new modem/router, a Zyxel, worked great, and all was good in my house hold. Then I got the bill and found out that unlike the previous modem they had sent me, this one I was paying a lease payment for. At which point I returned the Zyxel which gave us the best service we'd ever had, and bought this TD-W8960N. The reviews were glowing, setup was easy, but we started rather quickly to have disconnects. A call was made to Centurylink and they confirmed service was working, and since the modem/router was not theirs, referred us back to you. I called and after considerable time on the phone, all I was basically told to do was a hard reset to the modem. When the unit finished booting back up, internet was restored. Of course it was restored everytime we reset it for a while. At that point I was told that since the unit was working, that there was nothing left to be done. Since that time, it has disconnected us from time to time, and then in the last 2 days, sometimes it won't stay connected for more than a couple of minutes. My wife is very unhappy-she is a gamer, and a disconnecting internet is very very bad for an online gamer.
It seems that the further it gets away from a hard reset,the more it disconnects. After 6 soft resets (unplugging) today, I had to do another hard reset to get back on to register here and post this message. Is this a known problem for this unit? Is there a fix for this unit? Or, do I just need to return it to Newegg and try another manufacturer?
Again, the "leased" Zyxel gave us no problems for the month or so that we used it.

I have setup 2 vpn tunnels from my TD-W8970 to places that use TD-8960N (Firmware Version: 1.4.0 Build 110921 Rel.17774n Hardware Version: TD-W8960N v3 0x00000002 )and I can ping and connect to any ip used at their end but they can only ping 192.168.1.1 which is my router and not 192.168.1.104 which is my Synology DS212J that they need to access.
Both tunnels are similarly configured:
Tunnel 1 on my TD-W8970 IPSec Connection Name: Tony1 Remote IPSec Gateway Address(URL): 89.240.xx.xx Tunnel access from local IP addresses: Subnet IP Address for VPN: 192.168.1.0 IP Subnetmask:255.255.255.0

How do I test my routers ddns? My computer went down. So, my adsl ip address changed. I caused the modem/router to reboot. But the new ip wasn't sent to the Host (dyndns.org). I had to update my ip manually on [URL].

I purchased this TD-W8960N cause I thought it was a powerful beast, but it is not unless mine it is defective. On my mobile phone it shows -25 to -30 dBm at less than 10 inches away from the router antennas. In some places at home my phone disconnects when the signal drops below -70bm, however my laptop it is always connected because of the better antenna.
That's fine BUT, I installed my old Linksys WRT54G and the phone shows -3dB at the same distance from the antennas. Or is it that I overvalued the TP-LINK?Does anyone have compared signals with other routers. Should I assume that mi router is defective? Any trick to squeeze more power other than replacing antennas?

I have a router supplied by my ISP which is effectively locked down, the wireless on that router give me a massive 35 Mbps (yes i know... awesome) so I wanted to get something that would allow me to stream movies wirelessly in the house. The setup I had before was Thompson DSL router downstairs (ISP router) running the DSL connection and Wireless, a TP-Link 200Mbps Power over Ethernet connecting upstairs to a Netgear ADSL Wireless router (somewhat flaky device). This router had DHCP disabled and a static IP address, I had configured wireless with the same SSID, password and channel as the ISP router and they were all happy and everything was working (most of the time except when the netgear would crash or the 35MB wifi was too slow to achieve what I wanted).
What I would like to do is this... ISP router downstairs with wifi disabled so it just handles DHCP and DSL connection, router upstairs (New TP-Link) running new WiFi, DHCP disabled (static IP address for Router) but connected to router downstairs through TP-Link Power over Ethernet.
I was hoping it was as simple as the Netgear router where disabling DHCP was enough for it to see the other router and just work but it isn't doing that
I can ping the ISP router but cannot get to the internet,

In the past everything was working fine (had same computer connected wireless + wire) never had this disconnection. Now, I have a laptop connected using wireless & desktop wired but this disconnection is becoming so irritating. It is not only that I lose the internet connection, I lose the DSL like (as if the modem is turned off then on) and all my files over the LAN are either lost during transmission or something else.

All working well except Net Radio on my Yamaha AV amp. When attempting to listen message receive 'access error' never had this with Linksys router. The amp has been setup with the internal lan gateway address and used dns from talk talk detail. IP has a static IP address . I have tried placing amp in dmz address which didn't work also tried port forwarding 8000 - 8001 which someone said was the port used for yam net radio. none of this works. Never had to do any of this before simply used local gateway address and local internal dns from the old router and always worked with tp - link just cannot get it to go.
Tried lots of variation gateway and dns addresses none which worked...

I just bought a v3 TD-W8960N and I'm trying to see what is the latest firmware available?On the modem it came with 1.4.0 Build 111130 Rel.56405n.When I look on the website the listed latest version is w8960nv1_un_1_4_0_111108R40398.up (that is the file inside the zip package/link TD-W8960N_V1_V3_111108)Which is the newer version? The revision number on the firmware that came installed kind of looks like it is actually newer. But if it is newer, why is not available for download from TP-Link?

Just installed my new 8960 and it's working fine. However, I'd like to disable admin access from wireless, and only have that available via the LAN. I can't find anything that looks like it'll do that in any of the setup pages, is it possible? All previous wireless routers I've had have been able to do this.

I am having a rather annoying problem. I run a small hotel (just 3 floors) and my modem gives a strong enough signal to provide wireless access to everybody in the house however I'm finding that a lot of people, whilst they can connect to the modem, cannot browse online. Connection just times out when they open their browsers.Recently a guest gave me his laptop and asked me if I could do anything with it. I'm by no means an expert when it comes to this kind of thing so I chanced my arm by putting his MAC address into the CP's Wireless/MAC Filter page. He connected immediately and was able to go online much to my relief.
Thing is, I don't want to have to do this for every guest that comes through my door! Is there any way everybody who has a laptop can connect without me manually entering their MAC addresses? MAC restrict mode is set to 'disabled' but I thought that would allow everybody unrestricted access?

I am replacing my qwest/centurylink actiontec q1000 with the td-w8960n. I have run all the different setups, with the different settings that I have found on the net but to no avail. The one thing I have noticed is that the light for the asdl on the td-w8960n does not come on, but yet when I plug it back into the actiontec it sees it and the internet works. Any reason why the td-w8960n is not recognizing the active dsl line?

I just set up DDNS for my home, and also set forwarding port 5000 for my NAS with an specific IP address 192.168.1.xx. Then, I use my office Internet to call DDNS xxx.dyndns.org:5000 to connect the NAS in my home, It is working OK (from outside to home) However, if I call xxx.dyndns.org:5000 by my home Internet, it is not working (from inside home to home). But if I directly call NAS' IP address 192.168.1.xx:5000, it is OK to reach it. So I think, DDNS used behind TD-8970 (inside home) is not working. TD-9870 is not forwarding port.
I don't know what do I miss in setup this WD-8970.
My previous Zyxel wireless router modem can allow me to us DDNS behind it with out any extra setting. Is it possible that there is still some bug in Firmware of this TD-8970?

The problem is that the voip is not working. I have 2 offices with adsl connection. A is the central office and B is the branch office. The installation is old with deferent ADSL modem-router(Zyxel). The zyxel at the A office was damaged so i had to change it with Tp-link. The potology with ip and cables is the same. I tested the port forward for voip (port 1720) with telnet from outside of the office and responds correct. When i try to call from the A office to B office it seems that i can not connect. When i call from B office to A office the phone is ringing and i can not hear office B but office B hear office A. When i use the old modem router at the office A everything is working fine but the modem-router works just for a while so i have to change it. I closed the firewall but the problem is still the same. I talked with the local distributor and they tolded me that i have to correct the configuration. At the interface setup is chosen the dynamic at the section get ip and not static as i should do. The is a problem there. The configuration asks me the subnet mask and gateway. I do not know the subnet mask and either the local distributor and the local internet provider cannot assist. The internet provider told me to use at the subnet mask 255.255.255.240 and at the gateway the ip of the router. I did that but when i did i lost the internet connection. I have to mention that i make some other port forwards to my SBS2003 server and like remote desktop, vpn connections and https that works fine. The only prolbem is with the vpn port forwarding.
I am trying to block port scans originating in the Russian Federation, thousands per day. I entered 22.214.171.124 as the Remote IP Start and 126.96.36.199 as the Remote IP End, setting the action to Deny. It shows in the inbound filter rules list but my linux server still receives thousands of scans daily from an ip address in that IP netblock. My DIR-655 is running hardware version A3 and firmware 1.34NA.

I've been having some issues with my BT Broadband for a while, so decided to switch to a new router, a TP TD-W8960N, however setting up QOS isn't as easy as I had anticipated (I'm fairly new to this!).
My main issue is that we have a fairly limited broadband connection, but I need to backup work using backblaze. This is a pain because as soon as it starts to backup it eats what bandwidth we have. What I want to know is can I just limit the range of ip-addresses which they use for their backup?Is there a simpler auto-QOS approach I could use? The router is currently running the latest firmware that isn't in beta. Also - do these routers auto-update firmware?
