Google Wi-fi into home hub 6

Hi, I hope someone can help!  I’ve had my google Wi-fi plugged into my my home hub 6 (fttp connection) but the home hub produces an IP address and so does the google Wi-fi so this is creating an unstable Wi-fi connection (as two competing IP addresses). How do i rectify this? Can I do away with the home hub and essentially connect the google Wi-fi directly via Ethernet cable to the fibre connection? Or do I need to by a separate bridge only modem to replace the home hub first?? Thanks ... !

Google wifi has its own router so you don't need the hub. Connect it directly to the ONT (which is a modem).

Re: Google Wi-fi into home hub 6

Thank you! Now I’ve connected the google Wi-fi to the ONT it’s asking me to select:

DHCP

Static IP

PPPoE

which option is it? I tried PPPoE

and then called bt to get username and password which is bthomehub@btbroadband.com and password is BT .. but this gives an error message .. is this the right option? Or do I select DHCP? Thanks again .. 😉

Re: Google Wi-fi into home hub 6

  • Hi, I’ve connected my google Wi-fi directly to the ONT but the ONT also produces an IP address? Which is strange as I thought the ONT was a modem .. how do I remove this IP address so it doesn’t interfere with the google Wi-fi one? Should it still be in PPPoE setting or something else?

Any advice greatly appreciated! Thx

PPPoE and the username and password you have been given are the correct options.

The ONT can't generate an IP address, it's a modem. The Google WiFi will be generating the addresses
