Hi guys, can you please verify and update the firmware on my TPG provider DLink router. The time has not synced after daylight savings. This has messed up all the parental control settings. Would highly appreciate if you can look into this promptly. Thanks.

Hi @Blue_Sky ,

 

Thanks for sending us your details. We'd like to confirm if you have tried manually changing the modem/router's time setting to daylight savings.

Here is a troubleshooting came from TP-Link website that you may find helpful.

1. Access the TP-link's VR1600 modem/router's default gateway (192.168.1.1)

2. Go to Advanced > System Tools > Time Settings page.
3. Configure the system time using the following methods:

Manually: Select your time zone and enter your local time.
Get from PC: Click this button if you want to use the current managing PC’s time.

Get GMT: Click this button if you want to get time from the Internet. Make sure your modem router can access the Internet before you select this way to get system time.

4. Click Save.

5. After setting the system time, you can set Daylight Saving Time according to your needs. Tick the checkbox to enable Daylight Saving Time, set the start and end time and then click Save to make the settings effective.

Let us know how it will go.

 

Cheers!

Hi Shane, 

I have already tried what you have suggested. There is no option in the dropdown that has my local timezone of Melbourne AEST (which is GMT11). I have tried Get from PC and Get from the Internet both did not work. The daylight savings has been enabled but won't work due to the GMT issue.

Hi Blue_Sky.

For AEST, you can use Sydney (GMT +10).

For ADST, you can use Sydney (GMT+11).

If the router allows you to specify the start and end of daylight saving, it won't even matter if Sydney is not listed, just any city with the proper offset.

 If you have missed the changeover, try disabling daylight saving and just specify GMT+11 for now. You can still use NTP to maintain accurate time.
