DSR-250N - 3G failover
« on: April 15, 2012, 02:58:13 AM »

Hi, I couldnt find a forum for the DSR-250N but I purchased it because I have a requirement to have a lot of network ports but very small data usage over the 3g, but I do need the 3g

I wanted to not bother with the wan port and only use the 3G, I have filled in the box and the failover screen does say link up but its clearly not connected on the wan (3G modem polling but not solid light)

is there a way to force the router just to use the 3G connection and not bother with the WAN,

I had a ZOOM one which did this very easily and could replicate the same set up but less plugs and better wifi coverage is what I am looking for

I would recommend contacting your regional local DLink support office about this.

3G adapters are only supported on the DSR-1000/1000N.

Surely all those 3G failover options and reference on the website means its actually possible, the firmware that arrived with the unit had nothing but the FW I upadated to had lots of options

Consulting the manual: ftp://ftp.dlink.com/Gateway/dsr500N/Manual/dsr500N_manual_103.zip
Though this is from the DSR-500N page, it contains the manual for the DSR-250N/500/500N/1000/1000N.

Quote from: Page 10
The DSR-1000 / DSR-1000N supports Third Generation (3G) Networks via an extendable USB 3G dongle.
Quote from: Page 11
Support for the 3G wireless WAN USB dongle is only available for DSR-1000 and DSR-1000N.
Quote from: Page 49
...configuration for the 3G USB modem is available only on WAN2.
Quote from: Page 49
3G WAN support is available on the dual WAN products: DSR-1000 and DSR-1000N
Quote from: Page 50
Cellular 3G internet access is available on WAN2 via a 3G USB modem for DSR-1000 and DSR-1000N
Quote from: Page 113
The DSR Unified Services Router has a USB interface for printer access, file sharing and on the DSR-1000 / DSR-1000N models 3G modem support.

Note the absence of the DSR-250N/500/500N in the list. Also note that you must be able to configure WAN2, which is not available in the DSR-250N
