4G Router DLINK DWR116

Have bought a Dlink Router in hope of getting ethernet from my Telstra 4g ZTE MF823 Modem Dongle


Dlink says this device is supported & have followed thier setup instructions


The Dlink control Panel says device is connected but I have no internet connection?


Anyone with similar problems?


Was this helpful?

Hopefully you have found the answer already, but just in case you haven't ...


You will no longer need to use the connection manager to connect to the internet, however you may need to make sure that the D-Link is configured with the correct APN setting:  telstra.internet

Please note: Proxy server and Proxy port are no longer required.
If the modem is showing as connected, but you are unable to access the internet, try connecting from another device. Are you able to access the D-Links interface?

The MF823 in Australia can be different to other markets.  So in which market do they (D-Link) say that they have MF823 supported?  Another choice is you could look into the Open source created firmware for a range routers that does have support for more modems then usually listed by the original manufacturers - read about this at
