I just received the MT3000 yesterday. Today, I plugged it in, plugged in the Cat5 cable to the LAN port and could not connect to the router setup page (192.168.8.1), as per the directions. I enabled wifi on my computer and saw the SSID GL-MT3000-09e and selected it. I prompted for the network security key. I entered the key exactly as shown on the bottom of the AX3000 router label. It displays verifying and connecting, then displays “Can’t connect to this network”.
I’ve tried a repair, no change. I’ve tried a factory reset, no change.
One thing I’m seeing is the blue light in front is not a solid white. It’s blinking blue. That never changes to solid white.
So, I’m staring at a grey brick sitting on my desk. Not a good start to a beta test!!!
I’ve attempted the debrick 6 times, all with the same result. Cannot bring up the screen at 192.168.1.1. I know it’s not the cat5 cable, as it works fine as soon as I connect to my regular router and access the internet.
The color and pattern are blinking blue light. As for DHCP, I set the IP as static to 192.168.1.2, as should be set for the debrick via Uboot.
I think I just got a bad router. I’m not sure who to contact directly for this.
I don’t have VPN software running on this computer.
Update: Ok, I actually did have an instance of WireGuard VPN running on the computer, that I use when I’m out of the country to allow me to connect to this computer. It allows me to use Youtube TV and any other Geo blocked services as if I were still in the USA. Shutting that down (not sure why this would matter, though) allowed me to connect to the router. Thanks for jogging my memory on this, bOcy!
