routing, pord fowarding


[link to this post]
 
I have two d6400 netgear routers in modem mode connected to a tl r470t+ for dns, dhcp.... I then have a velop mesh in bridge mode.

Currently one wan is online. Ssecond line not installed yet.

If i connect via lan all is fine but on wifi some app wont work on my phone or tv. Apps: netflix, amazon prime movies, ebay, halifax banking, amazon.

If i put the d6400 to router mode and connect the velop all works.

Its like a port or something block

It was all working fine till i changed some settings. Not sure what i done

Will all depend on what setting you changed.

Things like eBay apps do not need port forwarding.

Most likely you've done something that breaks SSL for some sites, or possibly enabled some form of parent controls that blocks a lot of stuff. Guessing you were playing in the firewall area.

Might be best to reset kit back to factory defaults and configure from scratch

Wrong mtu can cause all sorts of SSL issues i.e. can create fragmentation.

Double nat should not break apps on smartphones such as eBay or banking

Settimg the mtu to 1430 seems to have sorted it

Oh don't, you have given me half an hour pure mirth by saying that smile 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣

Whilst I was training with the Royal Signals we had a rack room, where a signal would come in, be encrypted and would go out again, and in the room next door, vice versa would happen!

Because everything was wired to everything, we had a false floor where all the wires would disappear, you know the type of thing.

It was a secure room, obviously, so some bright Corporal had the idea of putting half a dozen demijohns of red wine to brew under the floor! Those that remember, the summer of '76 was a tad warm anyway!!!

You have guessed the consequences, 1 x Corporal busted and posted to RMP Colchester Garrison, the army prison, now called "Military Corrective Training Centre, Colchester".

The sheer scale of damage from the sticky bright pink froth, goo, everything that came up forth from the grills in the floor had to be seen to be believed !!!

Sorry about that, I know it's the wrong forum, just burst into my head, but just picture it and chuckle!

Stay safe,
Regards,
Trevor
