    Question TL-MR3020: Cannot access particular websites

    Model: TL-MR3020
    Hardware Version: V1
    Firmware Version: TL-MR3020_V1_150921
    ISP: German Telekom


    Hello guys!

    Regarding above mentioned issue I would like ask for your assistance.

    I use exclusively a wired network (Ethernet port) in a hotel to go online. As there is currently no WI-FI available I have been using specifically the TL-MR3020 router to achieve the following:
    1. to share the wired network
    2. to bypass the restriction on the number of devices that can connect to the network

    If I hook up the cable to my laptop and go online using the wired connection there is no issue whatsoever.
    However, as soon as I go online using the TL-MR3020 setup I have trouble accessing websites such as
    http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/
    http://www.handelsblatt.com/
    http://www.focus.de/

    Either those websites cannot be accessed at all or it takes many attempts and a long time for them to load.

    What can I do to fix this?
    I would appreciate any assistance in this matter.

    you've configured in wireless router mode? you can change the DNS under DHCP to 8.8.8.8, and reduce the MTU size, sometimes it works.

    Hello Shield101!

    Thanks a lot for your reply.

    you've configured in wireless router mode?
    I have tried both 3G/4G and WISP mode. Both having the same issue.


    you can change the DNS under DHCP to 8.8.8.8, and reduce the MTU size, sometimes it works.
    I have followed your advice and changed the primary DNS server to 8.8.8.8. Also I have determined the ideal MTU size using the guide below and reduced it appropriately:

    Unfortunately, in my case it doesn't fix the issue.

    Maybe try MAC clone. Connect your laptop to the router by Ethernet, login the router, go to Network, clone MAC address
