DIR-824 - can't access settings page
« on: September 03, 2017, 04:48:22 PM »

Hello.

I have a primary router (Virgin Super Hub 3) and a secondary router (D-Link DIR-842).

I wish to use the DIR-842 as an access point.

I have set-up the routers as per these instructions here: http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?PHPSESSID=ljdptpruieb1hgjas9n6mpgc75&topic=40856.0

Everything works except I can no longer access the DIR-842 settings page in my browser.

It is normally accessed via http://dlinkrouter.local although even typing its IP address doesn't work.

Any ideas?

Many thanks.

Oliver.

Link>Welcome!

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under the router case.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

Look at the main host routers connected clients list as see what IP address the DIR router is getting from the main host router. Use this IP address to access the DIR web page.

Hello.

It turns out that this is a Google Chrome issue.

Error is ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED

I can access the router via another browser using http://dlinkrouter.local/.

I have tried all sorts of things like flushing DNS to fix Chrome but it still doesn't work.

IE and Firefox work fine.

I still however cannot access the router via it's IP address from any browser - it only works via http://dlinkrouter.local/

Also, interestingly, when I log into the router via Firefox, it says the Internet is disconnected when clearly it is working.

Location is UK.

Chrome doesn't like http://dlinkrouter.local. for some reason.

I assume your other router is distributing DHCP OK through the D-Link router to your clients? Did you turn off DHCP on the D-Link router?

Did you change the IP of the D-Link router (LAN) to an IP on the same subnet as your primary router?

Can you ping the D-Link router IP?

Did you plug anything into the WAN port on the D-Link router?

What version of FF are you using?

Does Chrome work if you input 192.168.0.1 in to the browser?

I assume your other router is distributing DHCP OK through the D-Link router to your clients? Did you turn off DHCP on the D-Link router?

Yes - DHCP works fine on my main router.

DHCP is turned off on the D-Link router.

Did you change the IP of the D-Link router (LAN) to an IP on the same subnet as your primary router?

Under Network settings, I have 'LAN IP' and 'Subnet Mask'. I have tried changing these - makes no different. What should they be set to? My main router IP is 192.168.0.1.

Also, the D-Link router is connected via a fixed IP to main Virgin Media router. Ie/ the Virgin Media Router is giving a fixed IP to the second router.

Can you ping the D-Link router IP?

No - 'Destination host unreachable'. This is the case if I am connected (via wi-fi) to my main router or the D-Link router.

Did you plug anything into the WAN port on the D-Link router?

Nothing is plugged into the WAN port on the D-Link router.

The only cable plugged in (except the power lead) is an Ethernet cable. This comes from the main router (Virgin Media) and plugs into the D-Link router Ethernet port 1

What version of FF are you using?

54.0.1 (32-bit)

Does Chrome work if you input 192.168.0.1 in to the browser?

Yes - but this is the IP for my Virgin router.

If your main router LAN iP is 192.168.0.1, then:

On the D-Link router, under Network, set the LAN IP address to 192.168.0.2. Subnet mask should match your main router (255.255.255.0). Management link = dlinkrouter. Leave local domain name blank. Disable DNS relay.

Click Advanced Settings.  Disable DHCP. Under Advanced Settings, turn off UPnP and the two multicast options. Click Save. 

Make sure the DHCP range on your main router does not include 192.168.0.2. You can use this IP to access the dlink router.

The D-Link router (LAN ports) cannot receive DHCP from your main router so you have to statically assign it, but it will pass DHCP data to the clients connected to the D-Link router.

Make sure your clients get a gateway IP address of 192.168.0.1 and are getting DNS server IP addresses.

EDIT: You stated earlier "Also, interestingly, when I log into the router via Firefox, it says the Internet is disconnected when clearly it is working." Are you talking about the WEB UI of the D-Link router saying it is not connected (red X)? This is correct since nothing is connected to your WAN port.

Thanks - all working now.

Yes - I did mean the web UI of the D-Link router with the red X. So can I just ignore this then? As you stated, due to nothing connected to the WAN port.

Glad it is working now.

Yes just ignore it. Your dlink router is now a switch and access point. All the router functions are not relevant.

I should have mentioned this sooner. You can use this for future reference next time:
 Turning a router into an AP.

Glad you got it working. Enjoy.  ;)
