MF275R Turn off DHCP Server

 

I am attempting to turn off the router portion of the MF275R and use an external router for managing the household. Whenever I enter the area to do so a red circle with a line pops up in the selection and is inaccesible to me. Is this because I have not maunally set my PCs IP? TIA PS also interested in external antenna suggestions

Re: Mobile Internet MF275R Rocket Hub

 

Hello, @BBOK

 

Thank you for your post, @Breeze99 was able to connect the external router successfully and posted here the steps. For an external antenna, the discussion can be found in this thread.

 

Cheers,

RogersMoin

Thanks for moving my post to this thread, however, can you confirm that the firmware in the 271 is the same as my 275? I have followed the instructons given by Breeze99 (Thanks by the way)., however, the 2 (ZTE and TPLINK) router clash as both operate on the base 192.168.1XX range.

 

If I have missed something please ellaborate further.

 

Thanks

just change one of the ip ranges to something like 192.168.75.0, but you will still have double NAT which may or may not be an issue for you if all you need to do is access the internet.

Re: Mobile Internet MF275R Rocket Hub

Much easier solution.

 

1. Disable the WiFi on the ZTE.

2. Connect your router to the ethernet port on the ZTE

3. On the ZTE, forward all ports to the WAN interface address on your router.

4. Use your router to do a single NAT to any inside devices you require.

 

This removes double NAT. I would prefer bridge mode, but it looks like all the cheap LTE devices ISP's use now don't allow it.

I've been using the MF275R for a few months now and its been great except for some calls. Has anyone noticed an issue where you can barely hear the caller on the other end? Is this a known issue?

Thanks,

I have read of turbo stix, and older rocket hubs working but will the 275 work with a second router. I want to connect my Linksys WR54GS.

I've searched the manual and here no luck finding anything out about the MF275.

Any help would be appreciated

Re: Mobile Internet MF275R Rocket Hub

Hi @ResOps,

 

Thank you for your patience and welcome to the forums.

 

If you'd like to connect the Rogers Mobile Internet MF275R Rocket Hub to a Linksys WR54GS Wireless-G Broadband Router and have the Linksys manage your wired and wireless network. I would suggested disabling the MF275R Rocket Hub's Wi-Fi (and DHCP) as suggested earlier in this thread by @danpoleary.

 

• First log into the MF275R Rocket Hub.
• Disable Wi-Fi: Settings > Network Settings > Wi-Fi Settings > 2.4GHz / 5.0GHz / Basic Settings > Disable.
• Set port forwarding: Settings > Network Settings > Firewall > Port Forwarding > Enable the Virtual Server.
• Forward all ports to the Linksys router's assigned WAN address section: Ip Addess e.g 192.168.x.x, Port Range to start with is 80 - 80.
• Or another option is to use DMZ (De-Militarized Zone): Settings > Network Settings > Firewall > DMZ, allows full access and connectivity from outside traffic (optional).

• Turn off / disable the DHCP Server function: Settings > Network Settings > Router Settings > Disable DHCP Server.

 

Your Mobile Internet MF275R Rocket Hub will now act as a modem (only) and you'll be able to have the Linksys WR54GS Wireless-G Router manage your network. Smiley Happy

Hi there,

I tried this method but 'admin' does not work, how can I resent that password as well? I don't think I ever changed it but I dont remember. I really need to change the internet connect password. Thanks!

Re: Mobile Internet MF275R Rocket Hub

Hi @nduffy

 

Welcome to the Community Forums! Smiley Happy

 

Have you tried resetting your Rocket Hub? There should be a button on the side of the hub, which would reset all passwords to default, and then allow you to access the modem with password: "admin".

 

Let us know if that works out for you.

Hi, yes, that does not seem to work. it is the ZTE LTE, and button on the back but I tried that and no change. Thanks

Re: Mobile Internet MF275R Rocket Hub

Hi @nduffy,

 

Thank you for your patience, are you using the same ZTE MF275R Rocket Hub illustrated below:

If your device is different please let us know the model number. I can see you were trying to log in, are you still having issues? The default login password is admin, have you tried leaving the password field blank?

 

Regards,

RogersArthur

ZTE MF275R

 

Can someone confirm what I'm suspicious of???

 

That being that the ZTE MF275R is NOT bridgeable?

 

Not willing to have a double NAT

Not willing to use DMZ

Not willing to use the WIFI off DHCP off workaround.

 

I need a fully bridgeable lte/4G modem. I've already burned thru one rocket hub overloading its routing capabilites. I'd like to let my apple network takeover. I use a rogers static IP on this account and can't have a double NAT to get thru. All the work arounds I've found are unaccaptable.

 

Right now I'm looking at 3rd party 4G modems unlocked with support for Rogers SIMs. Just hoping someone at rogers can confirm this as my only NON-WORKAROUND solution. Also, would like to leave the feedback. MAKE ALL MODEMS BRIDGEABLE!!! Not everyone is a beginner, at least leave the rest of us some options.

Re: Mobile Internet MF275R Rocket Hub

 

Hello, @the41stside

 

Thank you for your inquiry, a direct bridge feature as available on cable gateway modems is not available on ZTE MF275R. Please see Message 12 which has step by step instructions to connect the external router, thank you for understanding.

 

Cheers,

RogersMoin

I followed the steps to turn my rocket hub into a modem only but when i go to router settings to set DHCP server to disabled, my curser changes to and red circle with a line through it.  How do I change this if I'm not authorized to?

Re: Mobile Internet MF275R Rocket Hub

how do you forward all ports to the wan interface?

Re: Mobile Internet MF275R Rocket Hub

In our country home, we live fairly close to a Rogers tower, and when we moved in four years ago the transmission was 3G.  So, I bought a Netcomm modem, which produced 3 MB/s if we were lucky, often less.  When I finally realized that Rogers had upgraded this tower to LTE, I bought a ZTE MF275, and without any external antenna, the download speed went from 3 MB/s to 59 MB/s when I first tried it.  I don't expect that speed all the time, but the difference was amazaing to me.
