Re: TP-Link 3040 Identifies but won't connect
said by OiCU812:Glad to hear your problem was fixed. This is odd, it seems the latest firmware breaks compatibility. I will e-mail them again the logs and reference this page. Last time I did, the person talking to me could not understand my text, like you said. I recently bought a TP Link: TL-WR-1043ND and flashed it with DD-WRT firmware. For $50, the TP-Link router is a steal, with it's 8MB flash. I can put DD-WRT's latest builds on, and they include 3G support. Connected my U598, and it connected no problem. It destroys my MBR-1000 and I paid nearly $200 for it. I spend $50 on the TP-Link model, and with DD-WRT I get A LOT more performance than my MBR-1000. Features such as UPnP actually work 100% of the time, and can do things the MBR-1000 can't. Wifi is 100% in the entire house now . And I am getting faster speeds:
"Solved" .....thanks to Dexter.....I went in and flashed the older firmware I found at tp-link's site and it worked like a charm... Obviously the new firmware (march of this year) wasn't tested with a Verizon 760..
Note: Tech support at TP-Link is almost non-existant... 3 phone calls to people who were trying hard but can't speak english well enough to communicate... Web site was even worse... they just don't respond at all.. I registered with their forum and got no help at..... just telling me I had to fill in a APN and a correct dial#..
Thanks again, I do appreciate the help!
I also find that if I set my U598 to NDIS mode and to search for Sprint only networks I can achieve greater consistent speeds. Since the router uses a driver, NDIS mode gives it the most compatibility with the router.
