Re: using third party router

Go to solution

Thanks for the tip .. might have to think about it tho as some reviews on Amazon call in to question the stability of its 5Ghz wifi as well as an apparent tendancy to randomly assign DCHP IP addresses .. any other options much appreciated

@philbern 

I'd say that the Asus is about as stable & reliable as any modem/router you'll find on the market.

I use both the 2.4 & 5GHz frequencies without any perceived isses.

Also all my home devices are set as predefined ip addresses with only visitors - family members - picking up ip addresses from DHCP so I've not seen that issue either.

Of course I'll do my best to help.

Just a point about VPN. As a server you've only 2 options which are PPTP - now not supported by Apple 😞 - and OpenVPN. As a client again OpenVPN and PPTP & L2TP to any compatible server I think.

Re: using third party router

Go to solution

I have a third party router wired to my bt home hub, not a modem router, it's an asus rt-ac87u,.to set it up :-

set up bt hub:-

type into browser 192.168.1.254 to get to the hub homepage.

Advanced settings>ipv4 set up > change ip address to 192.168.2.1.save settings

Change ip start address to 192.168.2.64, Change ip end address to 192.168.2.253. save settings

Turn off wireless. save settings

now configure your router depending on make and model.

connect 3rd party router

in the browser go to the routers web page (example:-192.168.0.1)

set the 3rd party routers ip address to 192.168.1.40. save setting.

disable dhcp server. save setting.

connect the two routers via 1) the wan port on your 3rd party router > ethernet port 1 on bt hub. switch them both on wait for initialisation .it should work .

Re: using seperate router help please

Go to solution
I have bought and installed a DSL-AC68U and the internet is working well. The BT TV has internet connection via IPTV. I can see channel information but unfortunately these do not work when selected - blank screen. The YouView box then comes up with an error message. Have you got BT TV and successfully got this to work?
