I’ve just bought the GL iNET GL-MT300N-V2 and I’ve been following the instructions but when I try to enter 192.168.8.1 it doesn’t load.
I’ve read multiple threads of others having the same issues and the solutions presented didn’t work for me. Here’s what I’ve tried
On my mac, in both Safari and Chrome (both tried in Private/Incognito mode) I’ve tried going to:
I’ve rebooted the router by holding the button down for 4 seconds
I’ve reset it to factory settings by holding the button down for 10 seconds
I’ve tried it both ways the instructions suggest, connecting by LAN and connecting via Wi-Fi
I’ve done all of the above on my Mac and on my iPhone
None of these methods have worked.
If I try the Wi-Fi method, I can see the network, I can connect to it, but can’t access the settings.
If I try the LAN method, I can access the internet without issue, but I can’t access the settings.
I don’t know if this makes any difference but I have a static IP that I recently purchased from my ISP, but I access my ISP router settings on 192.168.1.1 so its not like its coincidentally the same IP
Ultimately what I’m trying to do is have this GL router connect to my existing router, I want it to produce a separate network that I can connect to where all traffic runs though a VPN via OpenVPN. So the end result will be my Mac could connect to WiFi network 1 which is my original setup and doesn’t route though a VPN, or my Mac could connect to WiFi network 2 which is the GL router and all traffic goes via the VPN.
Any ideas on how I can troubleshoot further?
