Dlink 803 Router Setup



Dlink 803 Router Setup


Dlink 803 router can be used as both ordinary broadband router or PnP router (Plug and play device where settings are automatically configured from ISP side ACS Server i.e. Automatic Configuration Server). If your Internet service is defined as PnP, then no need to configure this router. For PnP service, your ISP will automatically allocate default wifi name (could be your username) and wifi password (could be your mobile number). However, you can change the default wifi name and password according to your choice. So here's the steps for manual configuration of DLINK 803 Router. 




========================================================

========================================================

Let's start 


  1. Connect Internet port of the router to the Ethernet port specified for Internet in the ONT
  2. Connect your laptop to the LAN port (any) of the router
  3. Type 192.168.1.1 (or 192.168.0.1) in any Internet browser
  4. If the router page is asking for login credentials for address 192.168.1.1, enter username as admin and password as admin then click on Enter button. For 192.168.0.1, press Enter button without giving any username and password. Or directly go to 192.168.1.1/home.htm or 192.168.0.1/home.htm
  5. You will get following Setup Wizard Screen, click Next


  6. Select Gateway on Operation Mode page then Click Next

  7. Click Next on Time Zone Setting page

  8. Click Next on LAN Interface Setup

  9. Put ISP provided username and password for Internet and Click Next on WAN Interface Setup page

  10. Select 2.4G+5G Concurrent option and click Next on Select Wireless Band page

  11. Give wifi name in SSID field and Click Next on Wireless 5Ghz Basic Settings page

  12. Select Encryption as WPA2 Mixed, give wifi password and Click Next on Wireless 5Ghz Security Setup page

  13. Give wifi name (use same as before, no issues) in SSID field and Click Next on Wireless 2.4 Ghz Basic Settings page

  14. Select Encryption as WPA2 Mixed, give wifi password (same as before, no issues) and Click Finished on Wireless 2.4Ghz Security Setup page

  15. The router will restart and after few seconds you will be connected to the Internet

ENJOY !

    1. Option 1: Cancel and re-apply only Internet account without router

      Option 2: Register you complaint and request the technical guy to call ISO dept. to delete the PnP service.

  5. You can add an additional router after the etisalat router.
    Change the default ip of eitsalat router to 192.168.2.1
    Disable DHCP
    Disable wifi
    Add another router with LAN ip 192.168.1.1
    for Wan Connection select static ip
    enter ip address as 192.168.2.2 / 255.255.255.0
    default gateway as 192.168.1.1
    Enable DHCP
    Enter DNS address in new router as 192.168.2.1

    Take a network cable connect one end to the ethernet port of etisalat router and another end to the new router wan port.

    thats it
    it should work.
