TP-Link MR3020 - Couldn't Connect To Internet After Setting Up Wireless Security
Jan 18, 2013
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.

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!
I just bought DIR-655 yesterday and tried to set it up through the CD but without success. My problem at first was I couldn't get internet connect via router (but PC to DSL modem direct connection is always all right). Then I played around to turn on "Advanced DNS service" then I got internet connection via router to my PC. However sometimes the web site names couldn't be translated by DNS correctly and it resulted in "Not Found" and I am pretty sure those web sites are active and running (as I have no problem to access those if I connect DSL modem to my PC directly). Also I noticed wireless connection was very slow and some You Tube videos would stop playing after around 30 seconds and DSL modem had no further activity at all. Why couldn't I use 192.168.0.1 (default IP) as primary DNS (as I got no internet at all if I did so)? Is it really necessary to turn on "Advanced DNS service"? How can I get internet access if I turn "Advanced DNS service" off?
I have an Kasda router connected to my PC. I want to connect Wireless D-Link router to a Kasda router so I can have wireless internet on laptop and on my PC as it is now directly. But I can't seem to manage to get it work. I can catch the signal but it says "No Internet Access". Also I can't enter my wireless router when connected that way, only the normal one. I'm suspecting that I need to configure both routers somehow to get it working. I've tried some other things but no luck.
The first thing I done was this:
PC<->Router<->Wireless Router (Connected them on LAN ports)
Also I've tried:
Router<->Wireless Router(Connected LAN from router to an internet port on Wirless)<->PC(connected lan from wireless to PC). - This way I was able to acces both router from PC, but still couldn't connect to wireless on my laptop.
We have 6 brnaches configured with NAC Module in Cisco 2821 ISR router. The WAN link being used to connect all the branch to the HQ CAM is via WIMEX wireless Broadband. The bandwidth is 2MB.OOBVG is the mode used. All branches were working well last 1 year. Last month it is suddently disconnected from the CAM.I opened the TAC. Cisco history of TAC experience, We have total 6 TAC enginners tried one by one still the problem not resolved. The following are the findings
1. Timing is accurate between CAS-CAM 2. Shared secret key correct 3. SSL temp certificate ok also image being used it 4.6.1. 4.Tcpdump from both CAM and shows some initial packet drops of 10 sec with the below CAM log
I believe that NAC is not a matured products and the problem like this even by Cisco TAC can not solve.
I have put two different e4200 routers in my network and both of them have the same issue. I believe there are some major firmware bugs with this router. First of all I set up everything using the web interface. My laptops could connect to the network and internet but any of my devices that use wireless bridges (WET610N) to connect could only get local network access. They could not connect to the internet. After some troubleshooting I found the reason it was not working properly. I used DHCP reservations in my network because of port forwarding and such. Well when the devices connected to the bridges were in the reservation list they were unable to connect to the internet. After I removed them they now are able to get on the internet without a problem. So that is the first problem I've found so far...
The second is I can no longer connect from my Xbox 360 to my Media Center PC. I tried to set up a new connection but this did not work either.

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 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.
i was setting up my friends new router (Lynksys WRT54GL) and i figured out the ip address and it was DCHP(i think) enabled so i just enabled that on the router settings and then i tried to finish the setup with the disc that came in the box and it kept saying it couldnt connect to the internet.-SO-we disconnected the router and connected to the internet and suddenly, no connection to internet. it was working earlier today but for some reason now it no longer has connection. waited around for 3 hours and still no connection, through router or direct link.
I recently bought a DIR-655 on amazon com, got a good deal. Since I'm old and slo, had issues setting it up, but finally got er dun!I set up a Network all by myself turned on player, did WPS(PBC) on player, and on D-Link. The router and Blu-ray are now friends, however, they are not on speaking terms.Network status on ol Blu- tries to connect then says - Network setting is completed, but cannot connect to the internet, Contact ISP.
I have a desktop pc and bought the DIR-601 so I could use my IPod touch. Everything works good but I think one or two other people ,possibly neighbors are using my wifi. Today I used my iPod and checked under general settings and noticed a wireless name I did not set up but then it disappeared. Also on dlink account online a few months back I was trying to do something with account, security and noticed one or two connections I didn't set up. What are the steps securing router,wifi so others cannot access or use ?
This customer has 5 5508 WLC controllers, version 22.214.171.124 with several cisco 1142 and 3502e AP's. All in one mobility domain. Randomly some AP's don't accept clients to connect. Requesting for an IP-address by DHCP on the client (XP).
I just made ssh connection to the AP's, did some debugging. No information. Checked the logging, nothing I wanted to see. Even debug ip packet, give me the insufficient information I want to have.
When we reboot the AP, everything will work fine, but some several weeks later, this AP will have the same problem again. The capwap tunnel still exists, I could ping, telnet/ssh the AP. Even when a user tries to connect, I don't see any authentication debug messages.
This AP exists in a clean room environment, but is sometimes happens with an AP in a open office space.
Logging a tac case is not an option, due to the lack of debug output I receive.

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 bought the E3200 to replace an older Linksys model. The older model worked but the signal was weak throughout the house. I installed the e3200 using the Cisco connect software but it told me that it wasn't sure I was connected to the internet. I wasn't. Showed a strong signal but could not connect via wireless devices or from the cable from the router to the desktop.
I have LUS Fiber service which does not use a modem. I have had them recycle the signal several times and have done tried many different variations of the MAC numbers from ipconfig or from cloning. Have also tried it with the MAC cloning disabled so the router's MAC number is used. I have reset, rebooted and done just about every possible option.
Spoke with my provider many times and they insist they are sending me a signal. They also recognized the router's MAC number on their end.I purchased one router and it wouldn't connect, so I exchanged it. All these shenanigans I have gone through are with the second router because I figured the hardware isn't the problem.
So, I've had my Linksys E2000 Router for awhile now (not a year old though), and I just discovered a problem with it.Just the other night, not even 8 hours ago, I was playing my 360, everything was fine. I then decided to go to bed, cause it was getting late. Here I am now, I boot my 360 up, and notice that my 360 couldn't connect to Live. At first I thought maybe the cable got unplugged somehow; nope. So I troubleshooted to fiind out that Ethernet Port one no longer works on my router, but switching the cable to port two, my 360 is able to go online.
Does this mean my beloved router, that I paid my hard earned cash for, has decided to start crapping out on me, or is there a fix for this? I take really good care of all my electronics, and my router sits in a spot by itself on my desk with plenty of air space. I have had no issues with this router in the past, until' now. I've always trusted Cisco, and Linksys products, and this really dissapoints me that my router might just be kicking the bucket, at not even a year old. What's the deal Cisco?

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'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.

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've recently purchased a Linksys EA4500 router. I've got home, I've used the installation guide CD thingy, connected 3 of my laptops wirelessly, no issue there.However when I tried to connect my 4th laptop problems came along. The problem I was dealing with was that I couldn't connect to the router. I mean I could see the network name appearing in the list, but when I tried to connect the network would just dissapear from the list, not connect, and wouldn't back on the list unless I've reset the laptop. Anyhow I've ignored that computer because I thought it was two years old and it might have had a wireless network adaptor issue, although it was conneting with no problem to my former router D-Link DIR 365.Anyway, just yesterday I've purchesed a brand new netbook (Evolio U9) and it doesn't see my router, although it sees all the other connection availables (my neighbors' wirless networks), I even connected to one of them just to test if anything was wrong with the netbook.
I also have problems when trying to connect with an Iphone 4. Well, it does connect, but the connection to the iphone just goes on and off making it impossible to use. It's really strange that all the 3 Iphones in my home have no issue connecting, not even my Glaxy S3, nor any of the Smart Tvs, nor the printer.Does the router have any number of limited connections available? The router configuration is the ones done from the CD. I've only assign a SSID and a WPA password.Please note that all the computers above are GENIUNE Windows

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.
Region : Germany Model : TL-MR3020 Hardware Version : V1
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).
I've recently bought a WRT54GL router, and I`m having some problems with it. The original firmware the router came with had a bug, and couldn`t even connect to a PPPOE network. I downloaded the latest firmware version for this model (4.30.14 build 5, Oct. 26, 2009). Now it can connect to PPPOE but the broadband speed is limited to ~ 30Mbits/s. My ISP normally provides a download speed up to 80-90MBits/s, and if I bypass the router, and connect the internet cable directly to my PC, it works.
The QoS is disabled, so this can`t be the problem, but I searched the internet, and I found that it can be because the router`s CPU is too slow and can`t handle connections up to 80-90Mbit/s download speed, but this sounds a little bit weird to me.Did any of you gus run into this problem? Is it a hardware problem, or a software one? Maybe there`s something I need to set up in the admin interface?
