I have D-LINK DWR-113 connected directly to the peplink 310 LAN port. The WiFi does not work very well and is erratic especially during morning hours. Both peplink310 and the DWR-113 have the latest firmware. We have a static IP based network. am i doing something wrong or i need a better router.
I assume that you have configured these two devices in the following way.
ISP — Balance310 — DLink ))))) or ---- LAN
Based on this configuration, I would like you to eliminate some basic configuration issues.
- Balance uses 192.168.1.0/24 IP address scheme for its LAN by default. What kind of IP address scheme does your DLink use? (It seems that this DLink router uses 192.168.0.0/24 IP address scheme by default). If they use the same IP address scheme or overlap, Please arrange them so that they can have a different network.
- What would happen when you connect non-WiFi machines directly to the LAN ports of the DLink? Do they function okay?
- What would happen when you bypass the Balance 310 and connect the DLink directly to the ISP modem. Then, test the WiFi connectivity from the DLink?
Since you have a static IP based network, there might be some IP conflict issues.
Please keep us updated.
My Dlink has 4lan ports and 1 wan port,at present i have connected the peplink with the Dlink through the LAN port.
The peplink has IP in the range 192.168.100.0/24 and the Dlink’s dhcp is turned off and its LAN IP is 192.168.100.103.
DLink router might not prefer this kind of configuration. Basically the DLink router is being used as a switch using only LAN ports.
What I would suggest is to connect the DLink WAN port to a Peplink Balance LAN port and create two networks.
Peplink Balance LAN can keep using 192.168.100.0/24. However, DLink LAN should use a different network such as 192.168.1.x/24
The following is the example:
ISP Modem—[WAN]Balance310[LAN-192.168.100.0/24 ]—[WAN]DLink[LAN-192.168.1.x/24] )))))) LAN Clients
You can still disable DHCP function in both Peplink Balance and DLink router. However, they should have different networks.
Please keep us posted. Thanks!
