Re: Home Hub 5 and Apple Airport Extreme/Time Capsule

You don't need the Hub 5, return it. As stated previously, the modem does nothing as far as wifi is concerned, no point in replacing it. If you move the Time Capsule upstairs, just connect the sky box directly to the Apple Extreme. No extra kit required, just juggling cables around.

Re: Home Hub 5 and Apple Airport Extreme/Time Capsule

Setting up the various Apple airport products is fairly straightforward. Take a look at Apples guides for the best detailed description http://www.apple.com/uk/support/airport/basestations/

I have an older Time Capsule with a new Airport Express providing an extended connection point to use the 5Ghz signal thus effectively giving me two separate networks. Two older MacBooks, a Macmini, Apple TV, iPads and iPhones connect without any problems.

The Time Capsule is using the HH5 as its modem. The HH5 also gives two separate wifi connections and wired Ethernet connections to various TV boxes and the MacMini. All work seamlessly together. Maybe I'm just lucky but so far have had no problems with the HH5.

As has been said if you already have a VDSL modem you don't really need a HH5 too.

Re: Home Hub 5 and Apple Airport Extreme/Time Capsule

I am trying to set up my Home Hub 5 to work with my Apple Time Capsule (2011).

 

Which ports do I plug the ethernet cables into?

 

On the Home Hub there are ethernet ports and also a Broadband WAN port.

 

On the Time Capsule there are ethernet ports and a port with a dotted circle.

 

I've tried all the combinations but nothing happens.

 

Do I also then need to chaneg any settings on my HH5?

 

Thank you

I don`t think you can do that with the HH5, you would need a standalone Openreach VDSL modem.

I think it's what Richy170 had originally configured?

Re: Home Hub 5 and Apple Airport Extreme/Time Capsule

No he was using an Openreach modem. There isn't a modem only option for the HH but it can be configured to act as a pseudo modem by turning off wireless and DHCP. Give the AE an address of 192.168.1.10 and connect one of its LAN ports to one of the HH's LAN ports. You will still be double natting, but as long as you are not trying to do any port forwarding, you should be ok.

Re: Home Hub 5 and Apple Airport Extreme/Time Capsule

By LAN ports do you mean the yellow ones that are labelled Ethernet?
