Re: Worth upgrading HH3 to other router or another HH ?


[re: hypertony] [link to this post]
 
Iím no longer on a vdsl2 service but until I was last year , I was always using the HG612 as a modem. Despite its age, itís still very solid. It might not give you the highest sync rate but stability wise itís great. If youíre looking for an alternative, then I would recommend something like the Draytek 130 but if it ainít broke..

same here.
looking to have the modem in the router, instead of the separate openreach modem.
power saving, and freeing a socket in my room, which is my music studio too.

will also take a look at the routers suggested.
thanks all.

Had problems with the Billion 8800 R2, kept loosing its settings for some reason, sent it back to the Amazon Seller for refund.
Went for TPLink VR900 instead and works a dream, ok it hasn't got all the bells and whistles of the Billion, but is does a good job none the less. iv6 works fine.

got the netgear d7800
had to return the one they sold me originally, as it was the r7800, which doesn't have a modem as part of it.
went for the expensive one, as I'll use it to host my files, which the computer that is my server will be retired.
and I need performance when I'm DJing online and loading tracks from the drive that will be connected to it.

any quirks I should know when setting it up?

thanks all for the input.

Just ensure the firmware on the D7800 is up to date, other than that you don't need to change anything else.

You're getting internet through wifi but not through any of the 5 LAN ports on the D7800? If so, try a router reboot and as a last resort a factory reset and router reconfig.

home hub 3 Wi-Fi was rubbish so I added an asus access point over Ethernet so the printer my dad has that has only Wi-Fi to connect.

once I removed the hh3 somehow the Ethernet connections were seeing the access point as the gateway. so I just got the access point's error page.
unplugged the access point to see if the printer could see the router directly (appears so and is connected but not tested)
now the access point isn't there all Ethernet see the router as the gateway now. and can access the internet.
