I want to be able to access my HG612 stats from any computer on my home network so don't really want to have to plug a laptop into LAN2 everytime I want to query the stats.
I knew the unlocked HG612 I purchased from a well known online auction site would have the default IP address 192.168.1.1
So in prepartion for this I configured my Netgear router to have a static IP address 192.168.1.2 and changed the DHCP range on the router to 192.168.1.3 - 192.168.1.254
With the HG612's LAN1 port connected to Netgear's (Cable/Fibre Broadband) port I thought I would be able to access the web interface from my wireless laptop.
I was wrong I can't!
The only way I can access the HG612's web interface is to plug the laptop directly into the LAN2 port and set a static IP address (192.168.1.100) on the laptop.
I'm sure I've read a post somewhere maybe on here where someone has managed to get access to the HG612 via a wireless connection.
I would appreciate any help.
