Unstable connections and weird problems.(Malaysia)
« on: December 24, 2018, 09:11:59 PM »

Hello guys eversince i switch router to D-Link DIR-867 ive had intermittent disconnection while playing games (PUBG). Even more weird sometimes on app like discord (its like skype but made for gamer) my friends can hear me when i speak but i cant hear them in return, but i know they are talking cause the app will highlight anyones name when they speak is just that i cant hear them but they can still hear me.

Tried using back my old 8 years router (Innatech RG4332) thats provided by my ISP, all those problems dissapeared but that old router only support upto 100mbps and wifi range/speed are really bad, but stable at wired LAN connection and i need those because i play games competitively.

I've got a speed upgrade from 30MPBS to 300MBPS, and i didnt want to get the new router from my ISP to support this speed since its quite bad. That's why ive decided to get Dlink router on my own instead.

so far ive tried
- changing to a new cable that is cat 6
- firmware update and also revert it back to older firmware that are the only one on Dlink Malaysia link.

Did i left out any settings? or something? faulty? eversince i change my old tm router to the D-Link router its been giving me problems except that im having 300mbps speed but issues as above.

  • If the ISP modem has a built in router, it's best to bridge the modem. Having 2 routers on the same line can cause connection problems: Link>Double NAT and How NAT Works. Call the ISP and ask to see if the ISP modem can be bridged. To tell if the modem is bridged or not, look at the routers web page, Status/Device Info/Wan Section, if there is a 192.168.0.# address in the WAN IP address field, then the modem is not bridged. If the modem can't be bridged then see if the modem has a DMZ option and input the IP address the router gets from the modem and put that into the modems DMZ. Also check the routers DHCP IP address maybe conflicting with the ISP modems IP address of 192.168.0.1. Check to see if this is the same on the ISP modem, and if modem can't be bridged, change the DIR router to 192.168.1.1 or .0.254.

so this solution is to tackle the double nat problem? thats on modem and router at the same time?

i google about double nat and i read this http://inmethod.com/forum/posts/list/908.page;jsessionid=0402A91AB0161865BC8753F81C532C8D

1st solution is to Setup PPPoE connection between the wireless router and modem.

im on pppoe connection already.

also live chatted my isp, person said my modem doesnt have built in router and head off saying my equipment is modem and router.

Another way to check for double NAT is to connect to your routerís web-based GUI and see if the WAN (internet) IP address is private or public. It should be a public address. If itís a private address then you have double NAT.

how do i do this on dlink routers page?

Are you sure? Is this the modem you have?
https://support.huawei.com/enterprise/en/access-network/echolife-hg8240w-pid-8471292

I believe this has a built in router.

To tell if the modem is bridged or not, look at the DIR routers web page, Status/Device Info/Wan Section, if there is a 192.168.0 or 1.# or a 10.0.0.# or maybe a 172.something address in the WAN IP address field, then the modem is not bridged.

this is the box

i cant find Status/Device Info/Wan Section


Some on my isp forums user mention i dont have double nat, same as the malaysia dlink support rep.
ISP forum users ask me to port forward instead the Discord voice APP.

How do know if my modem has router built in? i cant seem to find it on manual.

Try setting DCHP instead of PPPoE.
Whats the IP address the DIR is getting from the ISP Modem?

The modem maybe a in bridge mode. Thats a modem with a built in router.
