Step4: Login and then click “Status” to check the connection status. If shows “You can access the Internet”, that means internet access is available.
When the Connection Status is “connecting”, please try these steps,
and don’t forget to tap “OK” after setting.
Tap “Administration”->“WAN Parameters”-> “Clone MAC”.
1. Some ISPs will bind your broadband account info with a specified MAC address. If you can only access the Internet with a specified MAC address, you can try to use “Cloning MAC address”. By default, it clones the factory MAC address (the MAC address of the router). If you want to clone the MAC address of the current attached computer, select “manual” and input the MAC address of the current attached computer on its right. Then tap “OK” to save this setting.
2. Tap “Administration”->“WAN Parameters”-> “WAN speed”.
In WAN Parameters, please choose WAN Speed in the drop-menu. Then click “OK” to save the settings.
By default, the WAN rate is set as “Auto”. Generally, it is not advisable to change the default value. When the cable length between your Router and the remote device (modem, Router) is relatively long, you can set WAN rate to 10M FDX or 10MHDX to enhance transmission rate.
