Hi, currently i'm using this MR200 router in two ways, as a 4G router, which works perfect. But most of the time I want to connect it to my cable fiber router and I dont want to use my 4G connection due to the restriction.

The main router has the IP 192.168.1.1, ok. So, in order to not conflict the main router IP I changed the local network IP of the MR200 to 1902.168.1.2, then, following the instructions, I set the operation mode to Wireles router mode. And finally, I plug the WAN port of the MR200 to the main router. 

The problem is that I can not get into the web interface of the 192.168.1.2 any more, either by cable o  through wireless. The only solution is to reset again the whole router, and then I can get the embeded web through the 192.168.1.1 IP. 

In adition to the wireles network I want to use ethernet ports available in the MR200.

 

DO I have to swich off the DHCP server built in the MR200 if there is already the DHCP server in the main router?

 

I have noticed that the router looses the time, everytime I go to advanced /tool /times the the date is setted in 1970. Is ther a kind of battery inside that I can replace?

 

Am I missing some step?

Kind regards, Daniel Gimeno.

Hi, thank you for the time and patience.

There is some information for your reference:

1. It does not have to turn off the DHCP server if there is already a DHCP server in the LAN, but you will have two different IP ranges in the network.

2. Since the main router has the IP 192.168.1.1, when MR200 is connected to the main router, the WAN IP on It would be 192.168.1.xxx, which is in the same range as LAN IP 192.168.1.2 and there will be an IP conflict. So it is suggested you could change the MR200’s LAN IP to be 192.168.2.xxx.

Or you could set up MR200 as an access point( LAN IP as 192.168.1.2 with DHCP server disabled.)

The detailed instruction is quite like this:

@TP-Link  Thank you for your time, but I bought a new router, I can't wait 3 weeks to get an answer. I guess you should take care of your customers and improve your after-sales service

Kind regards, Daniel.
