Due to living in a cottage with 2 foot thick stone walls I have had to install a Linksys Velop mesh system. Now I have a 'Double NAT' issue.
I cannot disable NAT on my BT Smart Hub 6 so I have tried every which way to connect an ASUS AC68U but it will not see the internet for love nor money despite several posts I have read about this.
Is there a sure fired way of replacing the BT Smart Hub 6 with the ASUS or is there another router I could buy that will do the job?
I know there has been much on this topic but nothing quite seemed to fix it for me.
That asus is a router and what you need is a separate modem hence why no internet connection. You should have bought the modem/router version of asus
you could get a hg612 modem from auction
There are actually two versions of the Asus kit.
DSL-AC68U has a built in modem
Yes I did know about bridge mode but I am trying to avoid it as you loose quite a few features, may end up the only answer though!
Older versions of the firmware allowed you to access a web config page, bypassing the app, which does allow you to turn off DHCP on the Velop.
See here for an example:
