I have read a lot of posts about issues with the HH6 and in most cases I can agree, I would love to use a third party router, but they fail to provide access to BT TV each time BT do maintenance on the Infinity circuits. This happens too often to use a third party router safely scheduled TV recordings are lost.
However I have just received a BT Smart Hub 6 and wanted to configure it like my BT Home Hub 5.
IP address 192.168.xxx.254 subnet 255.255.0.0
IP DHCP range 192.168.xxx.63 to 192.168.xxx.180
It accepts all this but when I want to assign an ip address to a printer, it lets me select the printer from the My Network list,
then when i click change settings and login again the screen ../000013200/gui/#/myNetwork/devices has no devices to edit!
Is there a a known issue with this kind of setting or a work around?
You cannot specify an IP address unless you set it on the printer itself. You cannot edit any settings from the "my Network" screen.
if you click the green icon it takes you to a screen to see settings and some are changeable including fixing the ip address by mac address:
if you click change settings it brings up the router login page and after login you end up at a page with 0 devices as per my original post
If you want your printer to have a particular IP address, then set it on the printer. Simples.
