I will try that next but im not 100% sure how to do that, the laptop is running linux mint, while the desktop has windows 7 installed.

 



On the Linux laptop type ifconfig at a command prompt.

Re: 3rd party router not working anymore

ok typed ifconfig on laptop using both the bt home hub 5 and the asus router, they both gave the same info:

line encap:Ethernet
inet addr:192.168.1.69 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0



looking at the 192.168.1.254 settings pages on the Homehub 5 and desktop pc I managed to get this information:

Broadband network IP address:    (my ip address here)
Default gateway:    172.16.18.3    
Primary DNS:    31.55.186.78    
Secondary DNS:    31.55.185.46

Ethernet: ip address: 192.168.1.67

Hub IP Gateway Address
IP Address:    192.168.1.254
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

Re: 3rd party router not working anymore

You should get 192.168.1.1 as the Gateway when connected to the ASUS and 192.168.1.254 when connected to the Hub. Are you using DHCP everywhere or have you given anything static addresses?

Re: 3rd party router not working anymore

Maybe a daft question but when you installed the Asus did windows recognize that you are connected to a new network in the network and sharing center or is it using the same one?

Re: 3rd party router not working anymore

it tries to use the same one scott.  Keeps saying connecting... disconnected.. over and over. using the windows troubleshooting it then tells me that no cable is connected.

 

 

I'll do what you suggested now

Re: 3rd party router not working anymore

on the home hub:
Destination 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.0
Gateway 192.168.1.254 0.0.0.0
Genmask 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0
Flags UG U


on the asus router:
Destination 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.0
Gateway 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0
Genmask 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0
Flags UG U

 

I never setup any static IP addresses for anything on the network, I noticed DHCP is turned on on the Home Hub, im pretty sure it is on the Asus router as well.

 

edit: looking at the asus router settings now using the laptop:

LAN - LAN IP
IP address: 192.168.1.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

LAN - DHCP Server
Enable DHCP Server: Yes
RT-N56-U Domain name: (blank)
IP Pool starting address: 192.168.1.2
IP pool ending address: 192.168.1.254
Lease Time: 86400
Default Gateway: (blank)

DNS and WINS server setting
DNS Server: (blank)
WINS Server: (blank)


Enable Manual Assignment: No

WAN - Internet Connection
WAN Conbnection type: PPPoE
Enable WAN: yes
Enable NAT: yes
Enable UPNP : no

get the WAN IP automatically: yes
connect to DNS server automactially: yes

Special requirement from ISP
Enable VPN and DHCP connection : yes
Host name: blank
MAC address: blank
Extend trhe TTL value: no

 

 


anyone jumping out at you there? should I perhaps find out the MAC Address of the desktop and then try to manually assign it an IP address on the LAN ?


typed the below on the desktop to find my MAC address:

Re: 3rd party router not working anymore

Your local network looks fine, it looks as though your ASUS is not connecting at the PPP level. Have you entered the correct details since you did the factory reset? Username homehub@btbroadband.com, password bt. VLAN needs to be set to 101
