I recently purchased a Nighthawk MR60 Mesh network to replace the archer VR1600v due to it having poor range.
However, when I plug the MR60 into the NBN Arris CM8200B it doesn’t connect to the internet.
I have gone into the old archer VR1600v and copied the settings.
Does your Internet connection require a login? Yes
Internet Service Provider - PPPoE
Login - email@example.com
Password - mypassword
Service Name (If Required) (left this blank)
Connection Mode – Always on
Internet IP Address – get dynamically from ISP\
DNS address – get them automatically
Router MAC address – use default
I’ve set VLAN
I’ve tried enabling the VLAN / Bridge settings – adding VLAN ID 2
But still can’t get it to work.
I did manage to “kind of” get it to work if I connect the Nighthawk to the archer VR1600v… but it seems sometimes, devices wouldn’t connect, othertimes they would.. perhaps when I had a heap of devices connected to the nighthawk it stuffs something up??
Would greatly appreciate any help!!
Hi @krangy Do you have the cable from the Arris in the Internet port, not Ethernet port of the router unit?
This iiNet article describes setting VLAN ID=2 for the RAX80 but the menu system is similar to MR60.
