TP-link VR2800 and Zyxel LTE7480 M804 outdoor router - cannot get to work together
I use the TP-link VR2800 as my main DSL router.
as my broadband is intermittent, I have bought a Zyxel LTE7480 outdoor router/antenna and want to connect this to the TP-LINK.
I want to keep the TP-Link as my main router and have therefor DHCP activated there and have switched it off on the Zyxel.
I have given the xyzel a fixed IP of 192.168.1.10 and switched on ip-passthrough (seems to be the equivalent of bridge mode in order to avoid a double nat issue when it is on router mode?)
Not sure what to do at the TP-Link side
no matter if i leave it in mode 1 (DSL router mode) or mode 2 Wifi router mode) or when I connect the zyxel to the WAN or LAN port on the TP-Link, i cannot get this to work.
Would anyone be willing to give my advice to get this going?
What I want is to be able to plug in my DSL when it works but have my zyxel as a back up. Even better would be if both could be connected and perhaps the DSL connection bound to a single lan port out. (as I have separate guest accommodation which would then be served by that).
I have now tried almost everything but have to stop fiddling each time my guests are back or when my wife goes online for work...
I did get the 4g router working through the tp-link a few times but for some odd reason not everything worked correctly over wifi (but ethernet connection -seemed to -worked ok)
summary of setup:
TP-link VR2800 in house connected to BT DSL
a couple of RE650 around the house to extend (shame no mesh)
Also a switch connected to ethernet sockets around the house.
In the guest accomodation I have an Archer C58 with a guest Wifi ssid setup.with a LAN cable connecting the wto archers via LAN ports
Hope some one can help, after hours of youtube and google, I am at a loss.
