Access D-link Wi-Fi app through internet
« on: February 07, 2020, 03:27:35 AM »

Hello, I recently bought a Dir-2660 router. The D-link wi-fi app is working properly when I am connected directly to the router, however I cannot access it out of the house.

D-Link Cloud Service is registered, and I can see my device when I login to sso.dlink.com, but when opening the app outside the house I receive the following prompt:
Disable your cellural data and enable your mobile device's Wi-Fi until the device setup process is complete.

Is there something I can do, maybe forward a port, to access my D-link through the internet?

P.S. the D-link defend app properly sees which devices are online when I am out of the house.

I have some kind of experience using Netgear and Marcus. But I don't know much about D-Link router yet. During  a few days I am thinking to buy D-Link routher for me. What is your thought?
