Model: Archer-C2300
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: Archer C2300(US)_V1_180611

Hello everyone,,

I have new C2300. It's updated to the latest firmware. It's configured as an Access Point, and is connected to a Hitron CGN3 which is the gateway router to the internet.

 

I have found three problems with the C2300:
- it is unable to connect to NTP server https://xvideos.onl/, so can't automatically update its internal time.
- using System Tools/Diagnostics, it can't perform PING or TRACEROUTE tests to internet hosts.
- it is unable to check for firmware upgrades https://xnxx.onl/ from TP-Link server, nor download new firmware.

 

All these problems are caused by the fact that it does not know the IP of the Hitron router to which it is connected (192.168.0.1).  When the C2300 is placed into Access Point mode, its Network configuration page gets https://chaturbate.onl/ dumbed down significantly.

On the LAN settings page, one can only specify its IP address and subnet. (I have assigned it 192.168.0.2 & 255.255.255.0).  But there is no place to specify the router and DNS addresses. These two settings are required for the C2300 to connect to the internet.

 

How does one specify the router and DNS addresses when a TP-Link router is in Access Point mode? Is it possible to SSH into the C2300 and set them there?
