WAN (Wide area network) to Tp-link router

настройка роутера tp-link

WAN (Wide Area Network) – a connection with the ISP.

Before you start configuring the router, it is advisable to find out the necessary information. We need to know what kind of connection with the Internet technology used by your Internet Service Provider, you must have the necessary parameters that need to be set in the router’s settings (depending on the connection technology).

What used to configure WAN settings tab, select “Network” – sub-tab “WAN”  on the left side.

Dynamic IP-address – the type of connection which allows computers to automatically receive IP-address and other parameters required to operate in a TCP / IP network. Network settings (IP-address, subnet mask, default gateway) change when you restart the router migration.

Static IP-address – the type of connection when the provider gives the network settings (IP-address, subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS, DNS can be used, and not the provider) to connect, they are fixed and do not change. If you do not know them, you can call your provider to clarify or watch on your computer or router that is working.

  • IP Address:  * * * * Specify “the IP-address” provided to you by your ISP in dotted decimal points. (Issued by the provider when connecting an example 10.0.23.34).
  • Subnet Mask: * * * * Enter the “Subnet Mask” provided by your ISP in dotted decimal points. (Issued by the provider when connecting an example 255.255.255.0).
  • Default Gateway: * * * * Enter the “Default Gateway”, given to you by your ISP in dotted decimal points. (Issued by the provider when connecting an example 10.0.23.1).
  • MTU Size in bytes – usually the MTU (maximum packet size) for most Ethernet networks is 1500 bytes. This procedure is rarely necessary, and it should be taken only in the event that such a change is necessary to set up a connection via your ISP.
  • Primary DNS: * * * * Specify the “Preferred the DNS-server”, given to you by your ISP in dotted decimal points. (Issued by the provider when you connect or you can register any DNS-server, an example of the DNS-server of Google 8.8.8.8).
  • Secondary DNS: * * * * Enter the “Alternate the DNS-server”, given to you by your ISP in dotted decimal points. (Issued by the provider when you connect or you can register any DNS-server, an example of the DNS-server of Google 8.8.4.4).

  • Disable – The secondary connection is disabled by default, is only used to connect via PPPoE. This option is recommended.
  • Dynamic IP – Use dynamic the IP-address from the ISP to connect to a LAN.
  • Static IP – Use static the IP-address from the ISP to connect to a LAN. The IP-address – Enter the IP-address provided by your Internet service provider for the secondary connection. This address is only used to connect to a LAN. Subnet Mask – Enter the subnet mask from the internet service provider for the secondary connection.
  • Connect on Demand – In the settings you can specify the router to automatically connect to the Internet dropped after a certain period of time (Max Idle Time). If such a connection has been broken due to inactivity, Connect on Demand to automatically restore it as soon as you go to the Internet resource. If you wish to activate Connect on demand, click the appropriate radio button. If you want to connect to the Internet has been active continuously, select 0 in the Maximum idle time.

Note: Sometimes the connection can not be stopped, even if the Max Idle Time you specify a specific value (0 ~ 99 min), unnecessarily. Some applications are constantly turning to the Internet in the background.

  • Connect Automatically – The router automatically restores the connection as soon as it has been disconnected. To enable this feature, select the appropriate radio button.
  • Time-Based Connecting – In the router settings, you can specify that it establishes a connection to the Internet or ripping it at set times. Specify the start time in HH-MM format for connecting and end time in HH-MM format to turn off in the Period of Time.
  • Connect Manually – In the router settings, you can choose to connect / disconnect manually. After the expiration of the specified period (Max Idle Time), the router stops a connection to the Internet, while, if you go to an Internet resource again, the connection will not be automatically restored. To activate this feature, click the appropriate radio button. If you want to connect to the Internet has been active at all times, enter 0 in the Max Idle Time. You can also specify the time period in minutes, during which the Internet connection will be active until a request for a new connection.

Note: Time-Based Connecting will only work if you have configured the system time on the page of the System Tools -> Set time.

  • MTU Size – The default MTU size (maximum packet size) is 1480 bytes. Typically, this value is sufficient. Do not change it until you are not sure that this is required by your ISP.
  • Service Name / AC Name – The service name and the name of the access concentrator. This value should be reported only if it is necessary to your ISP.
  • ISP Specified IP Address – if you know that your ISP does not automatically assign the IP-address of the router when you log in, select the cell, “Use IP Address Specified by ISP” and enter the IP-address, received from the ISP in dotted decimal.
  • Detect Online Interval – 0. It is also possible to specify a value between 0 and 120. The router will search access concentrator at the specified interval. When set to “0,” the search will not be conducted.
  • Use The Following DNS Servers – If your ISP gives you the DNS server, the IP-address, check the box and fill in the following field preferred the DNS-server and the DNS-server alternative. Alternative DNS-server is specified by choice. Otherwise, the addresses of DNS-servers will be assigned dynamically by your ISP.
  • Primary DNS –  Enter the DNS server, the IP-address is in dotted decimal points provided by your ISP.
  • Secondary DNS – Specify a different server, the DNS-the IP-address is in dotted decimal points provided by your ISP.

Note: The new settings made in the “Advanced Settings PPPoE” will be used after re-connection.

PPTP / PPTP Russia (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol) – tunneling protocol such as Point-to-point, which allows a computer to establish a secure connection to the server by creating a special tunnel to the standard, insecure network. PPTP places (encapsulates) PPP frames in IP-packets for transmission over a global IP-based network such as the Internet. PPTP can also be used for the tunnel between the two LANs. PPTP uses the additional TCP-connection for tunnel maintenance.
