I have just installed the version 4 on my GL-MT300N-V2 and now in router mode (192.168.8.1) and connected to WiFi network (192.168.1.1) I cannot connect to the admin interface using the IP address assigned by the WiFi network (https://192.168.1.30).
Apologies I was not clear. i have my router WLAN (192.168.1.0/24) and the WLAN of the GL.iNet router (192.168.8.0/24) .
The GL.iNet an IP address in the WLAN of my router (192.168.1.30).
When I connect with my client device to my router (not the GL.iNet router) I now cannot access the admin interface of the GL.iNet; I used to be able to when using version 3. So now with version 4 when i connect to https://192.168.1.30 I get a time out.
Apologies again - I can connect to the admin interface from the GL.iNet WLAN (e.g. when my device is connected to the WiFi of the GL.iNet I can access the admin interface @ 192.168.8.1). My issue is that when I am connected to the WLAN of my own router I cannot access the admin interface by typing the IP address of the GL.iNet router in that WLAN (192.168.1.30).
I used to be able to do do this (connect the device to my own router WLAN and then access the the GL.iNet admin interface via the IP address assigned to the GL.iNet by my other router) before but not since I installed version 4.
I also remember that in version 3 there was a setting to check if HTTP based access to the admin interface was to be allowed and another setting to have a static IP address - both settings seem to have gone from version 4: it may not have anything to do with my issue but it could be related.
You could make lan network range for gl router for example 192.168.20.1/255
Just not 0,1,8 because some conflict ip address from wan or WLAN.
For example my usb dongle 4G can not change static IP and lock only 192.168.0.1
Some guest lan network range, some other devices lan network range.
OP, I believe there is a mistake in terminology. 'WLAN" = “Wireless Local Area Network”. You indicate you connect to a different router. Presumably this is upstream from the GL device (eg: $upstreamRouterLAN → $glDeviceWAN).
Are you looking to be able to manage the GL device while you’re connected to your other router? If so the first thing is to set a DHCP Reservation/Static IP on the upstream router to the GL device.
Thank you @bring.fringe18 - yes that is exactify what I am trying to do. In my upstream router I already have a static IP. I used to be able to do this while the router was on version 3.x but now on version 4.x I cannot do this anymore as I get a time out.
It looks like it was cut after firmware 3.16 as far as I can tell.
If you know for certain the GL device will never be directly connected to Public Internet/ISP’s WAN I’d just open a Port Forward rule fr WAN to the default GL GUI IP 192.168.8.1:443. (GL GUI → Network → Firewall).
If you need higher security than that we can discuss setting up a WireGuard VPN solution provided your upstream router supports WG.
