I have had EE Fibre for over 18 months, and it just works and have never really looked at the technical stuff.
But have recently acquired a new Laptop & NAS, So have decided to "upgrade" from ECI Modem/Brightbox.
I have an "Unlocked" HG612 and shortly a Asus RT-N66 Wireless Router.
I have a few questions, maybe my search statements have not been correct.?
The N66 router default address is 192.168.1.1, If I have read correctly the HG612 is also 192.168.1.1 by default,
>> so I need to change that by connecting a PC to LAN2 and change it.?
Again if I have read correctly the HG612 by default is a modem/bridge,
>> Do I need to turn off DHCP in HG612, I would prefer to use the N66 DHCP.
At present my Username/Password are in the "Brightbox",
I have read various things about entering Username/Password in to the HG612 it'self, but I think that is when used as Router.?
>> or do I need to enter my EE Username/Password in there, or just still in the Router
Are there any other settings I need to adjust in the HG612/N66U
I have seen references to PPoE.? , QoS , MTP.?
It's been a long time since I last posted, and I feel rather rusty....
Many Thanks for any help/guidance/pointers
