    1. Hi, if your connection is Al-Shamil, please make sure

      1. The connection mode is on Always On.
      2. Encapsulation is LLC
      3. The VPI/VCI is 0/50

      If your WAG120N works for PPPoE, please check the settings here

    3. Hi,

      Please check PPPoE setting first.
      1 Login to the router at 190.168.1.1 using username/password as admin.
      2 Go to Setup > Basic Setup.
      3 Select Encapsulation as RFC 2516 PPPoE
      4 Give PPPoE username and password
      5 Select Keep Alive instead of On Demand option
      6 Save your settings.

      Hope this works, don't forget to check the power source you are providing to ONT and the router.

    2. Dear Nabin,
      Greetings to you ..
      Will you be able to help me or send me the Configurations Steps for D-Link DIR- 850 L Firmware 2.8 - Etisalat E Life (Broadband) as i upgraded the the firmware of modem finding difficult to reconfigure it.

      Thanking you in advance..

      Delete
  7. I've been given a DIR-850L yesterday by ISP and they told me that this router should be configured/used and I should not use my router (so I cannot use my UTM that was used earlier with PPPoE, as a gateway).

    My question:

    (1) Is there anyway I can use my existing gateway, which is a Cyberoam Enterprise UTM, supporting PPPoE? I don't want to use my UTM in bridge mode behind Etisalat customized D-Link router. Is this allowed?

    (2) If above is not possible, how do I enable HTTPS on Etisalat router admin access. I can't find any option.

    (3) Also is there anyway I can disable Universal Plug-n-Play on DIR-850L without disrupting the service?

    Appreciate any help.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 850L is pnp enabled router where the pppoe connection is configured from Etisalat ACS (automatic configuration server). Thus you can use UTM as extension from the router LAN port (assign one local static ip to your UTM).

      If you are using dyndns, much better.


      There's no https feature for admin access

      and you can disable uPNP under : Settings > Advanced Settings
      (ftp://ftp2.dlink.com/PRODUCTS/DIR-850L/REVB/DIR-850L_REVB_MANUAL_2.00_EN_US.PDF)

    2. Please let me know the user name and password of 850L Modem

    3. Hi Peter,

      Please login to the router, go to WAN settings, the internet username will be visible, for the password, please check with your ISP (they should have provided you via card or sms). If you don't have password, call the call center to change it, if required only.

    1. Hi,

      You can request Etisalat to change your connection to normal rather than PnP, book a complaint to revert back on 101 or 800101.

  11. i shifted to elife lite 12 mpbs and an etisalat router Dlink was provided. i am unable to use my own linksys? now i am on PnP ? what is it? what is advantage and if need this cancelled , will i be penalized becoz i accepted to remain on contract for one year? thks for clarifying if possible?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi the advantage of having PnP service is that Etisalat can remotely support you for internet problems, even you can reset the router to restore your connectivity, you don't have to worry about internet username and password. The disadvantage is that you cannot use the router of your choice. Based on contract, you cannot switch to normal service and must use Etisalat provided router.

    2. Hi Nabin,

      I migrated from 10Mbps to 50Mbps. I have a Dir-890L that was working very well. I have a wired network with only tablets and phone on Wi-Fi. So all machines are on a static IP address. I was forced to use the Dir-850L, but failed to get it working with my network. My previous router although properly configured (same as before apart from a new password), cannot connect. I rang 101 and was told that it had nothing to do with PnP activation but only due to my router (which was perfectly working before the upgrade). I spend 30 min on the phone with no result, apart from a huge frustration. Any avice???

      Thx

      Delete
    3. Please login to the new router and change LAN IP address according to your previous setup. In case you need assistance, kindly call 101 and inform them to send technician to change LAN IP address.

      Delete
    4. You can't. Etisalat have totally gimped the router so you can't access any admin settings at all. It is configured to issue DHCP addresses in the 192.168.1.100-254 range, so you can use static IPs from 192.168.1.2-99.

  12. I just got the DIR850L and proceeded to upgrade the f/w ET-1.02 to the latest 2.06 and now it wont connect to the internet. I really don't know what has gone wrong. My PPPoE settings are also working in there.

    Replies
    1. Dear, please book a complaint by calling 101 and change the router. Your router is PnP enabled that means it will automatically pick configuration details from Etisalat ACS (automatic configuration server) machine. Don't ever upgrade PnP router unless permitted by Etisalat.

    3. Why can't Etisalat make the firmwares public? If we could get to download firmwares, we wouldn't have to go into so much trouble with this issue. Or atleast why cant Etisalat update their firmwares regularly and make it available to the public? Please explain, for I am really confused.

Till the time I have only option to connect another router or switch to have parental control.
    I am still waiting for the answer as it will help to whole community, bcz etisalat is now distributing this custom modem free of cost and getting all the consumers trapped.

    I had pass thru bad experience by upgrading the firmware of my Dlink 850l firmware. i am not able to connect to the internet anymore. please dont take the risk.

    I am not able to revert back to etisalat firmware since it is not available to download. luckly i still have my old Asus RT-56U router which is working as sharm. and support parent control in terms of setting to the time to browse the internet. take in mind that my router is around 5 years old.

    it took me some time to connect my old router to etisalat since now they are using vlan tagging. the use vlan 21.

    I highly recommend to use Asus Routers the new series are expensive but it give you excellent wifi coverage.

    you can drop me an email at eali1900@gmail.com if you need any help.

    So now I don't know the username and the password
    I tried reseting the router ( held the WSP button for 10 seconds, then waited for the LED to stop blinking ), but still when I enter the router webpage and write admin form username and password it shows "ERROR: Username or Password error."

  46. Hi.. I am trying to configure Buffalo G300NH.. Etisalat mentioned that I will need the userid and password (which thankfully I have) and from your Dec 2015 instruction, I see that PPPoE setting is required.

    Apart from username and password, there is another tab for IP address. What should be the IP address here?

  50. Hi. Etisalat changed my router to DIR 850L. I want to buy and setup Seagate personal cloud. I am not sure that etisalat configured router will support it. Can anyone confirm? Also if it does not support can u suggest an alternative router which will?

    1. you have pnp service from etisalat now, that means you cannot do port forwarding except the dyndns. Give a try, its all about luck now.

    2. Thanks! dydns is now paid and I don’t want to shell out 40USD per year to use the service.
      I bought an ASUS AC-3100 router and set it up as an access point keeping the 850L pnp router as it is. I then connected my 2TB HDD to the router and now I have a personal cloud. However, it is a local cloud and I cannot access it from outside my network.
      I can run my new router in wireless router mode and can have ddns function which is inbuilt to the router firmware and is free to its users. But the router keeps asking me to add WAN IP address and port. I don’t know how to do that. Can you help please?

  54. @Khalifa: this is not an option any more as ISP only offers PnP package. You can use your own firewall/UTM behind Etisalat router in bridge mode. You can do NAT and port forwarding.

  60. I am planning on using my free DIR-850L router as an Access point as I have 2 of these routers from Etisalat, one as the base router and the other as an AP. I have setup the 2nd as and AP - but I want to use the D Link firmware and not the Etisalat firmware for the Access point. In case something goes wrong, I want to have the Etisalat firmware to revert. Does anyone have a link for the Etisalat firmware? Please confirm or share. Thanks!

  63. I have replaced the Etisalat DIR-850L router with my own Linksys WRT1900AC router and it works but need to configure the VLAN tagged ID which can be obtained from Etisalat provided router. However, I noticed the internet download speed is still my old 10Mbps and not 20 Mbps. Upload speed however has increased to 5 Mbps as expected.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Found the issue why the download speed was limited under 10Mbps inspite of having 20Mbps. There is a setting under media prioritization which needs to be set correctly for the download bandwidth. Mine was set to 10Mbps which limited the download speed but not the upload speed.

  78. Hello Everyone:

    I have the elife basic package with the DIR-850L, with one computer, 2 phones & 5 cameras all connected wireless. I also have a TP link range extender in between.

    The wireless network is slow and quite often drops the connections hence taking the camera's offline. There is no other network traffic, so nothing is making the connection slow. Also if connected directly by cable to the router, internet speed is good.

    Some solutions i have:
    1 - Split the 2 & 5GHz wifi signals and put devices specifically on to each them. (5 for cameras & 2 for phones & computer)
    2 - Replace the router with a DIR 890L
    3 - Pull cables and connect the cameras and the computer (old building - has wireless crimped in ceiling panels without a central network switch)

    What is the best advice.

    Also how can I check if my elife internet is PnP or not so as not to waste money on a new router.

    Thanks
    Shawn

  91. Hi
    I have the Etisalat DIR 850L Router, everything was working fine for a while but now it is always dropping the connection both in Wi-fi and internet cable connection.
    Etisalat have rebooted the router but it still continues to drop connection upto 8 times per day.
    I have called them a few times but all they do is reboot the router and say it will work fine now, 2hrs later no connection again.
    I have requested for a new Router to Etisalat, but was told my existing router is working fine, which it is clearly not.
    I was wondering could I change the Router to a DIR 868L and apply the Etisalat settings?

    Many Thanks
    John

  92. I also upgraded the firmware in my DIR-850L and internet stopped working.

    SOLUTION:

    Call D-Link support - 04 880 9033. Ask them for help. They offer through normal retail channels 5 routers now which support PnP and work with Etisalat, you can buy them in any shop. They have their own custom firmware with additional preconfigured options to allow connections with Etisalat over PnP.
    They share it with you along with a short instruction how to configure router after loading the new firmware. Basically you need to change the VLAN to 30, however in my case I had to change it 21 and now it works like a charm. That way I recovered my Etisalat router and I have more modern/up to date firmware.
    The list of PNP routers they have their custom firmware to offer is: DIR 850L B1, DIR 880L A1, 885L A1, DIR 879, DIR 895L A1, so there is quite a bunch of options to choose from.
    Just call them and ask for it, D-Link guys are very helpful in this matter. Hope it help you guys who "lost" your routers after upgrading firmware.
