Unpacked my GL-MT1300, connected the power, connected via wi-fi to GL-MT1300-ba1. Tried to connect to http://192.168.8.1, got " 192.168.8.1 took too long to respond" error. Tried a direct LAN connection - same thing. Disabled my security software on Windows - same error. Tried resetting the router to factory defaults, same error. I must be overlooking something.
If it says took to long to respound means it is still starting up so give it 5min I would say. It if is connected to a WAN it should setup pretty quickly and you get a solid White light. If it is not connected will flash blue and tack a little bit because of no dhcp.
If it says took to long to respound means it is still starting up so give it 5min
Once the error message comes up after about 2 minutes of trying, the browser stops trying to connect. I can wait an hour and nothing further will happen. The unit is flashing a slow blue. I don’t know what “tack a little bit” means.
The private browser window doesn’t redirect to anywhere. It just comes back with a message that the ip address took too long to respond after about 1 minute.
The ipconfig for the LAN adapter shows a blank DHCP address. - even after I do the flushdns
The solution was much simpler. I had my ethernet cable plugged into the WAN port on the device instead of a LAN port. Once I corrected that I was able to connect to the set up screen and get logged in to my main wireless network.
Then on my laptop I was able to connect with the MT1300 wireless SSID with no problem. I have been running on it for about an hour now with no issues.
However, on my desktop, when I try to connect to the same MT1300 SSID that is working on my laptop, I got connected, but the status in Windows says No Internet. Why is the same SSID working on one computer but not on the other?
