Doesn't the Du router act as a normal router on the LAN side?

This might be a silly question but are you trying to connect the Dlink to the Du routers when they both have the same IP address (192.168.1.1)? And DHCP server enabled?

The Du router will do DHCP and I presume the DLink will also be set to manage DHCP by default so you'd need to disconnect the DLink from the Du but connect your PC to it, log into it and change it's IP address from 192.168.1.1 and the range it allocates addresses in. I would change the DLink to 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.2.1, restart it, log back in (using the new IP address) and check that it's dishing out IP addresses in the new range (ie 192.168.0.x).

I don't have a Dlink but on my Asus router it's under LAN settings and then LAN IP and DHCP Server. I presume it'll be similar under the Dlink.

Can you change the PPPoE (in your earlier screenshot) to DHCP?

Du "installed" my internet connection yesterday.

In the entrance to my apartment there is a dropped ceiling (also known as a false ceiling) with some access hatches. The access hatch just in front of my front door (i.e. just inside the apartment) is the one which gives access to the du equipment.

Each room has some RJ45 ports fitted into the wall.

Du have some sort of router installed there and a patch panel which links to all the ports.

The du engineer connected 3 ports from the patch panel to the router - these correspond to the ports used for the TV set-top box (which I presume is "IP-based") and the 2 ports I said I wanted activated. He also attached the phone line (a loose grey cable in the same area above the hatch) to one of of the ports on the patch panel. Once he'd set-up the phone and the TV set-top box and I checked that the internet was accessible from my PC (connected to the port via a cable), he asked me to sign papers to confirm the work had been done and was off.

I placed my wireless router in the same space at the du router.
I disconnected the cable from the patch-panel to the du router and then connected that cable to my router.
I then connected my router to the same port on the du router.

The Du set-up in my apartment provides addresses automatically using a protocol called DHCP. (...basically, a device asks for an address and the other relevant information it needs.)

To configure my router, I must supply a user name and a password, but that's to be expected.

I've now extended the system by installing a hub and connected almost all of the patch-panel connections to it which means I can connect a computer/TV/printer/etc. in any room via the RJ45 connections in the rooms.
And of course, I can connect over the WiFi too.

@varunmsit: I hope the above helps. If not, please feel free to private message me and I'll see if I can help.

D.

My Du connection is due to be installed this week. I'll let you know how I got on with my router and du, if you'd like.

Hi,

Thanks for the link you provided. I will be trying the scenario which the gentlemen explained in the link.
I struggled whole day today on call with DU and especially D-LINK (wireless guys) but it didn't worked.
However, two things were cleared that DU won't be having anything to do with PPPoe (which ask for username and password)
Secondly, they are providing Dynamic IP (so that's DHCP)
But still, something is missing.
So, i will try configuring D-LINK IP to 192.168.0.1 and see if changing the pool works.
I am in urgent need to set it for wifi -hacking for the upcoming project and getting delayed because of this.
Please let me know once your wifi works.

Hi,

Thanks for your the description. i Did what you wrote. I changed D-LINK default login IP from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.0.1 and all checked in my command prompt that it is giving out IP address to my laptop. So now the only problem is lying with D-LINK router facing WAN interface.
I logged into the DU MODEM and copied the output of DU settings.
I can attach it. Please See if you can recommend anything.
In D-LINK , i am using "protocol as -dynamic IP" and encapsulation as "LLC"
VPI as 0 and VCI as 35 or 50

Just to clarify, are you planning on using both routers (the Du and the DLink), or are you looking to have the DLink replace the Du?

If you're looking to use it to replace a Du ADSL I think you'll need the username and password from Du (not the one to log into the router locally, the one that gives it access to their network - which it looks like they won't give you).

If you're using them both, the Dlink shouldn't need to be set with the ISP country and connection information. You should just be able to set the connection type to get an automatic IP address.

I just tried finding the manual for your router as I'm not familiar with DLink routers webUI but I can't find one that works, but you should be able to go into the WAN settings and get rid of all those settings and just set it to automatically get the IP address.

The Du router should do the connection on the Du side of things, so when you connect your DLink router (with it's IP address statically set to 192.168.0.1) to the Du it should automatically find it as the gateway and direct all internet traffic that way (there may be an option in the DLink to set the gateway - that'll be the IP address of the DLink, 192.168.1.1 if needed.)

If you're trying to duplicate the settings of the Du in the DLink you don't need to. The DLink will do all the local routing for anything connected to it (wired and wireless, and give it a 192.168.0.x IP address) and direct everything to the Du which will then direct it out.

If you connect anything to the Du router directly it'll get given an IP address by the DU in the 192.168.1.x range (mine is set to give out addresses from 192.168.1.33 for some reason - most default to 192.168.x.2).

In our place we have two Du routers in a service hatch. I've not been able to get at them yet as I need a ladder, but they seem to manage the one TV connection and two designated ethernet wall ports. My router is connected to one of the wall ports so everything that I connect to that (wired and wireless) gets a 192.168.0.x IP address, as specified in my Asus router), but if I connect anything to the second wall ethernet port it will get an IP address from the Du box in the 192.168.1.x range - I have a switch connected to it so my HTPC and Xbox 360 both connect to that. I can still access them from my laptop, I just need to know they have a 192.168.1.x address when trying to connect to them.

I'm hoping that when I get a ladder I can get my router connected up directly to whichever Du router has the internet connection and then connect the two wall ports up through that like Chestnet has don his - I want to see if the cabling works with a gigabit connection. It'd be handy to have those ports as gigabit as at the moment I'm having to transfer files manually across to the HTPC as my TV shows and movies are on another PC and the 100mbit connection isn't quick enough to stream them, but until I get up there I don't know how it's set up and how good the cabling it, and if I can get more wall ports active that would be even better. I may not be able to do it, but it's worth a try!

Here's mine - presumably you have two Du routers? I guess one is for IPTV and the other for the internet (and I presume the phone system is VOIP?)

I've looked up the OP's router on D-Link's web site (I could only find it on their India web site) and it does not seem to have a WAN port, just a DSL port, so the OP won't be able to hook it into the du router. And if Du won't give him the user name and password for the DSL connection, he won't be able to use it, in my opinion.

If all that varunmsit wants is wifi, he could use an access point but I can't seem to find one online (I'm not really sure what web-sites to try as I'm still a newbie here) but a wifi router like this one: https://carrefouruae.com/webstore/Pr...roductid=60812 would do the trick. It would need to be configured to a different ip address range to the existing du router.

As an afterthought: The above router is an "N" only. Not all devices can connect to N only access points.

Another option which does G and N is this one: https://carrefouruae.com/webstore/Pr...85#description

Thanks emanef and chestnut for trying to figure it out.
I was trying to replace DU router with my D-LINK. In my home, i am provided with 2 DU router, 1 is for IP TV ,that is in another room and 1 for internet via ethernet.

If you want to have a look at the config guide, i can send it via mail as dis forum has limitation of sending file more than 1 mb. If that works for you, you can drop your email id in private message.
i can mail the screenshot of step by step of setting.
Or presently, the best option would be is, suggestion for any wireless router available in dubai that is just "PLUG AND PLAY".
So, i can just replace DU router with that wireless router,Connect it from wall and from laptop. Insert CD, and hit next, next, without bothering for any credentials or ISP based information.
Getting information from DU is really hard nut to crack.

OK, so I've got a ladder so I could get up into the hatch and have a look at the routers and the block that's up there, and I'm struggling to be able to do what I was hoping.

What I wanted to do was put my Asus router up there in between the Du Router that does the broadband and the cable that goes into the switch block, so both rooms (lounge and office) are connected to the Asus by gigabit, and then the Asus is connected to the internet going out.

Unfortunaly, it's cabled up in a pretty confusing way. As far as I can tell there is one ADSL connection coming in, which goes into one Du router, and then that is wired through to the other - does everyone else have just the one coming in or do you have two? I'm wondering if that might be why I can only record one HD channel on my Du IPTV box (as it's sharing the ADSL line between TV and broadband)?

Anyway, it doesn't seem as simple as one router services the TV and the other the broadband; the office seems to be cabled up directly to the switch block and then there is a kind of wide cross-connect cable (there was a small installation leaflet by Brand-Rex showing how to install it up there, must have been left by the Du engineer), but the lounge ethernet port seems to be cross wired with the TV port, with cables going from the TV router to the switch, and then another cable coming out of the switch and into the broadband router, so I can get the office connected to my Asus in the hatch, but the lounge has already gone through the other router so limiting it to 100mb/s and also putting it on the Du router's IP range through DHCP on that.

I just can't work out how to rewire the lounge BB and TV ports seperately, and I've not seen those wide ethernet cross-connect cables before (can't find any on google images either!)


Not a very tidy piece of cabling, is it!
