TP-Link ADSL2+ Wireless :: Using A TD-W8970 With A NAS?
Feb 28, 2013
Region : Australia
Model : TD-W8970
Hardware Version : V1
Firmware Version :
Im having issues setting up port forwarding with my Synology NAS.
My house is all connected via network cable, going to a main 24-port switch, which is connected to a Modem/Router (TP-LINK in this case). I can access the NAS from anywhere on my home network, send and receive is fine. I previously used a Billion modem/router in the same config and it all worked fine.
The problem is that when going through the Synology setup, it fails to see the tp-link. So therefore I cannot run its port forwarding program to setup all my ports. Which in turn the NAS can't access the internet. I have started going through the port-forward setting on the router interface, and manually entered the ports - i realized that I'm limited to the number of ports i'm allowed to open! I have also run a port testing program, some are successfully opened the others are not.
Is there some button i need to check or switch on the modem?

I just bought online a brand new TD-W8970 modem/router but I'm in trouble with getting ADSL working.I set up a PPPoE connection with the settings from my ISP but the ADSL Led on the device is solid OFF and in the Admin section it says DSL Status: Not Connected.

I've just replaced my aging ZyXel Wireless Router with a TD-W8970 which connects to the internet with no problems whatsoever. However, I have an ethernet connected Western Digital MyBookLive NAS which is happily allocated an IP addess but does not show up on my network on my PC (Windows Vista - fully patched). A usb connected pen drive and exactly the same. Am I missing something blindingly obvious? On the ZyXel the NAS worked with no problems whatsoever.
The problem with the NAS was my internet security Bitdefender. For some reason, on installing the TP-W8970, it switched my firewall status to public from home/office. Corrected that and the NAS can now be seen over the network. This does not fix the USB attached pen drive not being seen problem though.

My TD-W8970 freezes randomly, sometimes several times a day, sometimes less, but now the problem it's more frequent and I suppose it could be generated by some internal component that could have a abnormal behavior.Anyway, this happens in different situations, either using all the functionalist, or being only on and in idle state. Last time was few minutes ago, when all the system were shuttled down and only router was on.

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?

Two week ago I bought the TD-W8970 ADSL router model. Im using a canon pixma IP4700 printer connected to the router USB print server port and everything is working without any issues if I just look to the router functionalities.
However since that Ive installed TP-LINK USB Printer Controller, my both computers (desktop with windows 7 and laptop with windows 8) are getting very often some BSOD.
I was editing all files automatically generated by windows on this cases and if seems that the cause of this issue is the file TplinkUDSMBus.sys (installed by USB Printer Controller).
To check the impact of this, Ive uninstalled the TP-LINK USB Printer Controller software from my laptop and I dont have any BSOD since 5 days ago. In the desktop Im still have the same issue.
The router print server is a nice functionality and I really want to use 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

I have sent the following trouble ticket to TP Link Support hoping they can shine some light/fix a VPN issue I am experiencing with the TD-W8970 router.
Please see the text below.........
I have 2 tunnels set up on my TP Link TD-W8970 and although both of these work for a a while, they both drop out after 24-36 hours for no apparent reason. The tunnels still show as "up" in the router, but I lose PING and connectivity to my remote systems. The only thing that seems to fix this is to reboot the router.
I have tried the tunnels with and without "DPD" (Dead Peer Detection) enabled and the results are the same.
I have 2 other friends who have the exact router with the same firmware (latest version), and they too have the same issue.
There is nothing in the logs showing any disconnection of the VPN, and as I have mentioned, the tunnel still shows as "up" on both ends. Its almost as if the service has stopped running, but I cannot check this.

Just installed new W-8970 via centuryLink ADSL, connected two computers (hard wire) which work fine. I also have it connected by hard wire to my Direct T.V DVR Model HR 24 to run T.V app's such as Pandora music etc. It will only stay connected for 5-10 minutes then drops out, any suggestions other then buying a different brand modem/router.

However, when I initially connect to the router, either on the LAN or remotely via the internet, the router takes a long time to display the initial page (up to 1 minute) and then usually displays the page without any variable data included. Frequently it also fails to show the menu on the left either. By hitting Refresh several times, eventually it will load the page fully.

I am struggling to get a printer added through the print server. The printer is set up in the TP-Link USB Printer Controller and selected as the auto-connect printer. I can scan through the server, but can't add the printer in control panel or see it as a option when printing. The printer is a Samsung SCX-340F.

That's a wonderful router on the paper! Really it has some problems with the wireless connection and the dhcp server. After 2 days of i must forced to reset the router because it refuse any wireless connection while the internet browsing on the other pc connected via ethernet ARJ45 is very slow.To complete the scenario the router doesn't allow any acces to his console page ..so what's the problem?
I try to change any channel for the wireless without no positive result.I bought it on amazon but if this situation will continue without any solution from tp-link i will forced to send it back with a totally negative feedback on the product.
Router Model: TP-Link TD-W8970 port forwarding my modem/router. I previously was able to successfully port forward a Valve Source Server and had other people join on the internet so...(It worked) I recently reformatted and since have had issues.
I'm currently setup with PPPOA and I've added various ports for different programs (a Teamspeak 3 Server and Minecraft) either dont work. I used a port checker program and they either say the port is closed or the connection is refused...I've tried using a static IP but I think i configured it wrong becuase i was barely able to get the internet while using it, either way..the ports didn't open.
DCHP is disabled (Tried enabling, didn't work) The above ports are enabled with Windows firewall (inbound+outbound) and Im not using any Anti-virus software to block the ports. Windows 7 64bit, fresh format and ports that wont go through.

I am trying to set up port forwarding on this router but it seems I need to use virtual servers but in all the guides there is a menu for this under the advance settings nat menu.I do not have that option, I have downloaded the latest firmware but still nothing.

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.

problem with filtering
Region : Syria Model : TD-W8901G ver 6.0 54Mbps wireless G ADSL2+:
I used the url filter utility inside the router program. I put some url for example www.google.com, I wanted to try the filtering cababilty, Later I deleted all these adresses , but unfortunatley it keeps telling me the following message: "The system returned: (110) Connection timed out The remote host or network may be down. Your cache administrator is webmaster@proxy1."
I use a wired network connection to my neighbours Vodafone Modem (We share his monthly cost). I also have a TP-LINK 54M Wireless ADSL2+ Router from a previous broadband contract with a landline phone company. Is it possible to reset and configure the TP-LINK Router to act as a relay unit, connected to the network cable, so I can then use my laptop elsewhere in the house?

The product manual of TD-W8951ND V4 states that it's supports MAC spoofing. But in the product itself, it is nowhere to be found. I tried contacting the customer care via email but they are too lazy to respond. If they disabled this feature then why in the world they mentioned in the manual. I double checked the manual before buying this model. Now I stuck with it.

I Bought this w8968 a month back.. It was working alright till a few days back. When i connect and start browsing or downloading, it goes OK.. but after a few hours(sometimes 2, sometimes 1), It stops responding and I couldn`t ping 192.168.1.1 either through WiFi/Ethernet. Status indicators for DSL/WIFI/Internet/LAN all glowing as though nothing wrong with them..? The router is not that much hot when this happens.. When i switch off the router and then on, The Prob gets solved only to reappear again in 1/2/3 hrs..
