DMZ - BT HH4


[link to this post]
 
I have just moved to BT from Sky and i would like to use my dd-wrt Buffalo router that i have had working in conjunction with sky router for the past few months. In theory, you were unable to use dd-wrt with the sky router, but some friendly geek wrote a guide on how to get them to work together. See Here and view the attached pdf file.

The problem that i currently have is with the DMZ. I think if i am able to resolve this issue, i will get my dd-wrt working again.

Currently i have several devices connected to my dd-wrt router, the TV and Sky Box etc. If i connect my dd-wrt router to the HH4 via ethernet and and go to the DMZ settings on the HH4, i am able to choose a device to add to the DMZ. I am able to choose the TV MAC address for instance.

Why am i able to choose devises that are connected to the DD-WRT router, whereas what i really need is the DD-WRT router itself to be added to the HH4 DMZ.

Is anyone able to advise?

edit - view the attached pdf file.

Are you on Fibre or ADSL ?

You should be able to ditch the HH and use your DDWRT as the only router - that is if you are on ADSL your DDWRT box has an ADSL modem.

For what it's worth and if anyone is interested, i managed to get dd-wrt working pretty much perfectly with my homehub 4.

The dd-wrt router suddenly appeared in the dmz, i applied the change to the config and it now works. I now have very flexible settings for making sure that the kids internet connected devices can go online at certain times of each day.

I thought the HH4 could control times certain devices are allowed to access the internet?

Do you understand that dd-wrt is on a different router, not the HH4 ?
