Huawei HG612 working as a router


[link to this post]
 
Has anyone got one working as a router? I think Openreach supply it as a modem, but it does have router functions.

BT lock them down with their own firmware but the device is capable of quite a lot of things. I've seen documentation on how to 'unlock' them but expect to endure the wrath of BT if you do and something goes wrong smile

We do this in our office.

Once unlocked, you can switch it from Bridge mode to Routed Mode and have the modem do the PPPoE authentication itself. You can also turn DHCP on and set up virtual servers etc, just like a normal router.

Simply plug the modem in to a switch and thats that smile No wireless of course, still need an access point etc.

Cool. Do I need to know any settings, or are they already in there?

Congrats on your new status btw smile

Thanks.

Once unlocked, make sure you are plugged in to the modem in LAN 2 not LAN 1, and login at http://192.168.1.1 with admin/admin as the username/password

On the left, go to Basic > WAN
Under Port Binding untick LAN 1 and LAN 2
Connection Mode: Route
Connection Type: PPPoE
User name: Your FTTC username
Password: Your FTTC password

Click Submit

The router will now handle the PPPoE connection. To have it give out IP address via DHCP, go to Basic > LAN on the left, and simply tick the Enable DHCP box, then Submit

You can now use both LAN 1 and LAN 2 ports for 2 devices or plug 1 in to a switch etc.

And you can change the internal IP range too if you want to move away from the common 192.168.xx.xx.

That all went very well, after I remembered to have the modem connected to the phoneline.

I now have got a modem/router which is:

handling the pppoe session,
the firewall is off,
QOS is off,
UPNP is on,
TR069 is off,
logging is on,
DHCP is handing out addresses,
and both lan ports are in use.

Next stage is statistics graphing and a bit of automation.

If memory sreves me right, you are using this modem on an ADSL connection.

Some parts of the Windows Graphing Scripts MIGHT work, but I think ADSL has different names for some of the data/information.

e.g. I believe ADSL's SF (SuperFrames) is named OHF (OverHeadFrames) for VDSL2 (FTTC) connections & the scripts are written for VDSL2.

If you access a terminal program (Putty seems to be a good one as you can easily set it up to store log files etc.), you could try running the "xdslcmd --help" command to see what stats/info would be available.

Then you could run the relevant commands to see what the output data looks like & maybe spot the differences that would need changing?

It MIGHT just be a simple case of Find/Replace the relevant VDSL2 terms/names with ADSL terms/names.

I ALMOST got RouterStats working with the HG612, but it gave spurious results.
It looked like some of the data from the modem's web page (http://192.168.1.1/html/status/xdslStatus.asp) moved around a little & confused RouterStats.
