    Lightbulb Nest Thermostat and TL-MR6400 settings - any tips welcome!

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    Advice please.

    Can anyone assist or is there anyone on this forum who has successfully connected their TL-MR6400 to a Nest thermostat - I've been through all the port settings with Nest Customer support and turned off WPA2 but I still cannot connect - I can get the Nest to work if I use my iPhone's hot-spot but not through the MR6400 - anyone who has some success stories and tips - I am all ears!.

    Thanks in advance
    Justin

    Solution: set DNS addresses in DHCP settings

    After hours of trial and error, I finally found a solution.
    On the admin website of TP-LINK, go to DHCP > DHCP Settings, and set Primary and Secondary DNS. You can use Google's DNS for instance : 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4.
    Then go to System tools > Reboot and reboot the router.

    It worked for me :-)

    Thanks

    Thanks for the reply I'm going to try this at the weekend - do those google DNS work if that's what I were to use? I nearly put this router on eBay I'd got so fed up with it!
