This network diagram illustrates how it was connected to function as a secondary router or WiFi extender.


Step 1: Connect the Primary router to the OLT Switches through a patch card and configure it. If you have TP-link, Netlink, Syrotech or any related routers, kindly refer our video.

Note: If you have already configured your primary or Main router then skip this step.


Step 2: Connect the secondary router (NETLINK HG323DAC) to PC/laptop via ethernet cable. One end on the PC/Laptop and the other end to the secondary router as shown in the below diagram:-

Step 3: Once connected to the device (laptop) then disconnect your network connection on the device. After disconnecting, enter the Secondary router’s IP Address as in the web browser (i.e. Same IP as the primary router you configured). Then enter the default username and password along with the verification code and click login.

For Netlink HG323DAC modem, the default Username is “Admin”, and the Password is “stdONU101”.
