DD-WRT router behind DSL Router not connecting?


Best Answer wuffles, 24 July 2015 - 04:46 PM

Success, I think. Well, it's connected, so it was a simple case of 1. forgot to add a cert, 2. forgot to add an ntp server after the factory reset, 3. broke it completely and 4. unbroke it and reset it up again.

 

So, now I know it works I can take out the subscription, and with just 15 mins of life left in th 3 day trial too.

 

Do I just use the firmware update facility through the GUI? In which case is there a specific thing I should be looking for on the DD-WRT site. Presumably just seach for the correct model and take it from there?

 

Thanks for your help DJ77.

I haven't done it yet because it went against my ethos of trust anyone on the Internet (no offence) but according to this: http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Netgear_WNR2000V2 that firmware won't work?

Nope. Nothing. How do you get this back to anything usable do you think? Model is WNR 2000v2

 

I've not said it was an R7000, you did kind of mention that model number before but I assumed (as with many Netgear cr@p) it has a few names.

 

It's always been a WNR2000v2

No it's cool. So, I think the newest firmware is the one I have. I may go about getting hold of a newer router once I know this all works. Is there a preferred model these days?

 

I have a number of access points around the property all feeding into the TP Link router which is the DSL router, and it all gets a bit funny when things change.

Right on. Well, I'll stick with this £25 off eBay one for a bit now it appears settled.

 

Do you mind me picking your brains on how to point various clients (wired and wireless) through the VPN? Which btw is still working even though it was supposed to run out of free trial at 6pm. Oh well.

I've decided to go down this route (see below)...no idea what problems it will throw up but it would be better for my particular scenario.

 

Ideally I would like to continue using non vpn route for most things, seems to cause a slight lag sometimes but it could be our slow rural broadband causing the issue, also I have all the other APs knocking about the property playing nicely with each other through router A. But I have a need to force a NAS box through the vpn and if required connect clients on an adhoc basis to the VPN router (router B).

If you can see any huge flaws in this please do step up and shoot me down.
