Apologies if this has been covered but searches didn’t turn up a procedure.
Here’s what I’ve done:
Hooked a network cable from my laptop to the LAN port on the GL-MT300N-V2 (router), logged in via chrome as admin using 192.168.8.1 to access the router.
Hooked a USB cable from my Pixel 3A (Android 10, recent update) to the router. On the phone, went to settings > Network & Internet > Hotspot & tethering > turned on USB tethering.
When I do that, tethering window appears on the admin webpages for the router with USB0 as the device and I click on Connect - progress circle revolves and then the IP, NetMask, GW and DNS values appear - they are 192.168.42.38, 255.255.255.0, 192.168.42.129 and the 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 (the DNS settings I set up on the router).
This allows me to establish connections to the wireless network I’ve set up on the router but when I connect network cables to the LAN port, I don’t receive my network settings via DHCP and there’s no connectivity via the cable.
The Network Mode is set to Router.
What settings should I adjust to make the cabled connections behave as the wireless ones?
Thanks for your time.
