Best Infinity Compatible router/modem for mac?

Go to solution

Hello,

 

so I have been sufferring the annoying problem of 'self assigned IP' with my mac devices.

 

Simply put the BT hub3 refuses to recognise these devices (apple tv, time capsule, imac) and allocate IPS, with my direct ethernet connection. Ive tested everything; cables are good, data runs along between devices. As for the hub, I get perfect wifi etc. So I pretty much know its to do with the router.

 

Anyway Im not a techy and dont really know what to do, so have given up the ghost, and want to replace the homehub3 (which I think is at fault) with something else, so...

 

Has anyone else had this problem and found that a different router sort this problem out??

 

If so which piece f kit did you buy?

 

THX!

You've got the piece of kit you need already. Simply turn your time capsule into your primary router and ditch the hub.
