R6300v2 time and date issue

Hi there.

I have incorrect date and time set on my R6300v2 router. I selected the correct Time Zone under Security/Schedule but it has not helped at all. I am using my R6300v2 mainly in Access Point mode, but I also used it for one month as a typical router. Since new it never had the wright date and time set. It seems also impossible to set it manually. Is there any way around this?

The router has constant connection with the internet, so it should auto-update date and time...

If you look at the router log just after power-up do you see any NTP related messages? Does the time stamp of log messages change from the default? Can you post an extract from that log here please?

Re: R6300v2 time and date issue

Thank you for response. There are no NTP messages within the logs at all after boot-up or reboot. It is also not sending the NTP request at all...

I do actually know what you mean by NTP request and logs, as my old DG834Gv3 behaves like this (I still use it as one my AP's). After reboot it will default to a factory date, send NTP request and then update date and time. Unfortunately the new R6300v2 is not doing it. Might it be a firmware issue? I am on V1.0.3.30_10.0.73.

Yes, that’s what I was looking for.

 

I don’t have an R6300, but do have an R6400 set up as an Access Point, its log shows almost nothing but NTP messages. I don’t see NTP requests, just the result.

 

Since you have the R6300 set up as an AP, is it possible that your router is blocking NTP requests / responses? Does it have a log that you can check? What is the brand / model number of the router?
