    TL-R480T+ Access question

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    Hello guys,

    I bought the router last week and I already set everything according to my network needs. I'm using one main ISP and one as a fail-over. The last LAN port 5 is going downstairs and is connected to a switch. The thing is that I want to separate the network so I've set different VLAN to this port. The main problem I'm facing is that the client PCs connected to this port (VLAN2) are also able to access the router management page. I want to block their access to it, but I couldn't find a way to do so. Normally some routers have access control that you can filter which port may connect to the router, but with this one it's a bit different. So is there a way to block the users connected to a certain LAN port or all LAN ports except one to access the router management page on 192.168.0.1? I want to be able to access it only from my main PC for example.

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    Best Regards!

    What's the hardware version? 480T+ indeed has the Access Control feature and it worth a try.

    Hello fearthebeard the hardware verison of the router is V8. I was very surpriced because cheaper routers have these very simple options to filter the access to the router, but with this one I couldn't manage to make it work. I've tryed various settings through the access menu, but it didn't worked.

    Firewall---->Access Control----->Access Rules to configure. You could post the screenshot and the requirement and maybe I can help.

    Here is the screenshot. My goal is to make the router unreachable through the web interface from every other computer in the network except the main one. The current IP is 192.168.0.1 and the main computer is set to 0.2

    You set nothing...

    In short, you should configure 2 rules: the first entry is ALLOW and the second is DENY. Interface both are LAN.
    Source: the first is 192.168.0.2/32 the second is 0.0.0.0/32
    Destination: both are 192.168.0.1/32
    Effective time both are all, of course. That's all.

    I've tryed something like this, but it resulted in compleate deny of access to the hosts (Internet, lan connection etc.) I've even tryied different services. However I'll try to configure it again as you suggested.

    Thank you for your help.

    Hello guys,

    I've tried everything and I can't accomplish my goal. Even with Access control I've managed to restrict a PC to access everything except the router main page on 192.168.0.1. In the mean time a router that cost 15$ has an option to restrict the access to its page by MAC. This is getting ridiculous.

    I made a mistake. the configuration should be

    the first entry is ALLOW and the second is DENY. Interface both are LAN.
    Source: the first is 192.168.0.2/32 the second is 0.0.0.0/0
    Destination: both are 192.168.0.1/32
    Effective time both are all, of course.

    Would it make some progress?
