Ques. I have a Airtel 4g LTE wifi but due to less connectivity I purchased a Dlink DIR 505 all-in one router/repeater to use as repeater. The problem I am facing is if I manually give the IP add than DHCP is disabled but if I choose auto than there is no Internet Access in IPv4/IPv6 kindly help to resolve this problem. The signal strength is 100% and I have assigned Prefered DNS Server to 198.164.0.10.



Ans: First of all,  thanks for choosing tech tantrik and sorry for the delay.

        Part1 " The problem I am facing is if I manually give the IP add than DHCP is disabled but if I choose auto than there is no Internet Access in IPv4/IPv6 kindly help to resolve this problem."

Ok, here is what you have to do,  keep the I.P settings to DHCP Both on the Laptop/PC end as well on the Airtel 4G LTE wifi end. This will solve the DHCP Problem.

      Part 2The signal strength is 100% and I have assigned Preferred DNS Server to 198.164.0.10 "

Set the preferred DNS Server to 8.8.8.8 as first preference and 8.8.4.4 as second preference. 
These are google's DNS Servers at Airtel 4G LTE wifi end.

and

just use Dlink Dir 505 as a simple repeater.

just make these two changes and your internet problem will be solved.
