Hey all - interesting situation here. I'm using an N300 (TL-WR841N) as a wireless access point. There is *no* internet access - this is on a closed network that is several IP cameras and a PC that acts as a digital recorder. With the N300, I'm able to view the cameras in realtime.

Or I was.

I got this set up perhaps two years ago, but something wasn't right. I was able to connect to the router itself by going to the router's IP address in a browser on the PC, but not through the router, for instance putting the same IP into a browser on a mobile device. I called tech support and after several attempts, they had me change something in the router settings and it WORKED!!

Unfortunately, something quit working and I reset the router trying to fix it, and I'm back to where I started. I've called tech support several times but no luck yet. I am able to see the router on a wireless device and connect to it - but then it says "Obtaining IP address" and I'm never able to get any further.

I'd be most grateful for help sorting this out!!

MANY thanks!!

Hey Kevsh - thanks so much for the reply and sorry it took me so long to try it! I did try enabling Internet Access Control and allowing packets, but I still had the same trouble.

I understand that in hindsight this might not be exactly the right piece of equipment, but it has been functioning perfectly for about two years! I know it's just some setting buried somewhere. Would be very grateful for any other ideas!

Many thanks!

Finally had an hour to be on the phone with tech support - and FIXED it!! DHCP was disabled, and as soon as it was enabled, it began working like it always had. Hurrah!
