    1. Pls check with other wifi devices also, the frequent wifi disconnection is due to poor quality of power adaptor so please change the router if your wifi devices are okay

  13. My DLINK DSL 2750U was broken, so I bought Linksys X-1000 ADSL router. I set up with CD-ROM software, but I can not get the internet. I tryed to set up at http://192.168.1.1 by how to set up E900 on this page, but I can not connect the internet.
    Please tell me the way to set up Linksys x1000. masa

    1. - were you able to login to the router ? I've seen the manual for X-1000 it is almost same as E900.
      - retrieve the PPPoE username and password from your router or the card provided by Etisalat and apply same in new router.
      - call Etisalat customer care and check whether your internet account is configured as PnP (Plug and Play) or not, if your internet account is PnP, then you need to get new router from Etisalat only (Dlink 803 or Dlink 2750U updated firmware)

    2. Thank you so much,Nabin.
      I could login to the router.I enteed my username and password provided by Etisalat, but I can't get the internet.
      I will call Etisalat customer center and check whch my account is configured as PnP or not.Thank you. masa

  19. Hi,
    Can someone help me with the configuration for Linksys EA3500 router configuration. Everytime I try, it doesnt show any network connectivity between Cisco router and Internet from Linksys console.
    Any suggestions ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. please create PPPoE dial up connection and test it directly from PC to ONT, if it is working, then it should also work for EA3500. Please check patch cord condition, your username and password should be correct and all in small letters.

    1. Javed you can use one of the router to extend your network. For more info check these links. You better use the DHCP method.

    And connected , all set up finish , but showing no internet access , why ?

    ReplyDelete

    1. If your eLife has PnP Internet, you should use Etisalat PnP router as primary router and E900 as secondary router.

      - check if you are getting IP address from Internet port of ONT (use the WAN cable directly to your PC for testing)
      - check if ONT is stable
      - check the payment
      - check the patch cord connecting ONT and the primary router

    1. Hi,

      If you have Etisalat plugNplay, your private router wont work, kindly apply new router from Etisalat or else call Etisalat to remove PNP internet feature.

    2. Assalam Waleikum Nabin,
      I have PnP service active. I have called etisalat customer service and they say that it cannot be deactivated. I will have to cancel the account and get a new account without plug & play. Is that true. If not than how do i deactivate PnP. I have even been to the main etisalat office in Dubai & the rep at the office informed that there is no such thing as PnP that needs to be deactivated.
      Please help

      Delete
    3. Please complete your contract first - usually its one or two year. If you cancel earlier, they will made you pay huge money. Later on you can cancel and apply internet connection without router.

    2. Hi,

      Your service is PnP that means internet will work only on Etisalat router. However you can configure EA2700 to DHCP mode and extend your network to another room.

      EA2700 won't work on PnP enabled internet account.

    1. There are two options
      1. Call Etisalat and request to delete PnP Internet to get normal Internet service.
      2. Use Cisco as secondary router (through DHCP mode)
