Can anybody recommend a third party router which will successfully run Bt tv (IPTV) and normal internet services through the same port?
i have all of my tv and games console related kit, including the bt uhd tv box, running from a switch from one port on the HH5.
With my archer c9 I could get IPTV working on the bt uhd box but that would break internet access for the other devices connected to the same switch.
If if I could I would run another cable but I can’t as this is in a recent extension which does not have a crawl space, and has oak flooring nailed on to the plywood base...
Solved! Go to Solution.
I think the only way to do it would be with a managed switch.
Excellent, thanks! Had no idea that a managed or smart switch would work. Found this article that addresses my issue from searching with the info you provided.
Now need to pick a decent 8 port managed or smart switch that my lack of networking talent can cope with!
Somebody marked this as solved but the question answered was not the original poster’s question?
No, but I split this off on to its own thread as it was a different question to the original problem. It is only this thread that is solved not the original.
One of the mods marked it as solved.
Ok, excellent. I just clicked the link and was concerned I’d gazumped the OP. Thanks again.
ps - managed switch should arrive tomorrow.
Managed switch here, set up and uhd tv working! Thanks again!
