My DIR-827 can't connect via an optical router
« on: September 12, 2015, 09:40:26 PM »

Hi there

Recently my ISP changed the DSL router to an Optical Fiber one. With the previous, I used my DIR-827 router configured with PPPoE and the ISPs in bridge mode. The configuration was working fine. But after the change, I tried to get the same setup but the DIR-827 can't establish connection. I'm sure the PPPoE connection can be done, because I can set the dial option in Windows and it connects almost instantly.

After many attempts and modifications in the configuration of both routers, I can only assume that the difference between Windows and DIR-827 dialing is the speed in which the connection is made (with the DSL connection, the dialing in Windows was slower than the present, and in the D-Link is still slow). I've tried also lowering the default MTU in my router to a optimized one with no luck.

Please, I need some advice in this case, even if the (argumented) conclusion is to give up with my intentions. I have the latest firmware available (1.05B06) and my ISP forces me to choose only between normal (NATed) connection and the bridged connection.

  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

Internet Service Provider and Modem Configurations
  • What ISP Service do you have? Cable or DSL?
  • What ISP Modem Mfr. and model # do you have?

Try using DHCP under Conntacdtion Type instead of PPPoE. Fiber or Optical ISP are not PPPoE supporting.
