I would suspect content filtering or similar if it's blocking http/s.

From your PC on the inside can you telnet to websites on 80 or use openssl client and "openssl s_client -connect www.google.co.nz:443" and see if that loads.

mentalinc:

 

Does the supplier of the review unit not provide support?

 

If it's not passing HTTPS I wouldn't be connecting to my network and would send it back saying broken, might want to test next unit before shipping.

 

 

They do provide support and usually pretty good - but it's a new model, not in the channels yet and Chinese New Year (Taiwan). I have already granted them access to the shell but this won't happen until after the holiday. I am just asking about other possibilities.

Along the samelines - telnet google.co.nz 443

 

if that goes through, at least you know firewall should be fine and probably is content filtering of some description.

 

 

 

EDIT:

 

 

 

You dont have some proxy server set in your browser by any chance? 

 

If you did and you replaced the router, the proxy server may have changed IP's if its running locally on DHCP.

Just another thought...

No proxy server. Will play more tomorrow - put the old router back as I do need the gigabit connection working this weekend - and since they won't connect until next week now...

 

By the way, MTU was already set to 1492 (browser UI). Will try a wget from my laptop during the weekend. Will also host a small page on my Surface, connected to another network and try to access from this connection - this will give me certainty that http request are going out or not and I a server sees.

Interesting to see how the review goes considering the knowledge you have and the difficulty of getting it working.

Surely this is lining up to be a major fail..

I'm keen to see if the same issue occurs without VLAN tagging. If you've still got the 3011 there MF you can set that up to handle the VLAN tagging for you.

This morning I changed its operation mode from "Router" to "Wireless AP (Bridge)", plugged it into the existing (working) router and I am posting from my laptop connected to this AP.

 

It doesn't look like it's filtering otherwise it wouldn't work in this mode either. So I can think it could be incorrect VLAN tagging.

 

I guess I could put a sniffer in the network in see what's in there. But might leave this to support now. It's not like my network is down and have other stuff to do...

It sounds a little like auto proxy discovery on the browser is failing - especially as you mentioned that you can curl OK. 

 

Windows 10 has "Automatically detect settings" in the Settings under Proxy.  Chrome on windows 10 seems to use the same settings.

 

The DHCP server could also be handing out an automatic proxy URL (it's option 252) Technet Article

Nope, no auto proxy discovery as I disable this in all machines.

 

But it's working now. Just before unplugging it, I reverted to router operation and changed the tagging - whereas in the previous model only the Internet port needed tagging I applied it to all ports on this one. And I'm now connected through it.

 

So something really did change in the OS configuration for this new model but there's no documentation about it. Funny thing is there's a series of profiles in the router including Spark, Vodafone, Slingshot and none worked either. Only the manual configuration did.

Try dropping the MTU lower, 1420 or even 1308. Also if it has any features to fragment packets for you turn them off.

 

 

 

Asia-Pacific is attrocious for black hole routers.

Do you mean VLAN tagged on the internal ports? If so that sounds a bit odd.

Yes, it's interesting because the only configuration difference between the old (RT1900AC) and the new (RT2600AC) is the tagging in LAN 3/4...

Ah so you have to use the LAN port as some sort of workaround? That is some mickey mouse stuff, do you have a switch configured to support the tagged VLAN traffic coming out?
