HG612 as a modem and BT HUB as an access point


[link to this post]
 
Hello,
I just have bought a HG612, which I would like to use with my BT HUB5. Basically I would the HG612 to work as a modem and then the BT HUB5 as an access point.
I could set the HG612 but I have no idea how to configure the BT HUB (dhcp etc).
Any help appreciated.
Best

Just plug the modem in as per, and make an ethernet connection between the modem and the wan port on the 5 ...... assuming your ISP is BT Broadband, then it'll do as you want. Easy.

Thanks. I tried but it did not work.
Basically, I just have set a new PPOE connection on the HG612 (http://www.photo-host.org/kwc)
Do I have to enable DHCP on the HG612 (I tried with and without and it not work) ?
Best,
W

You don't need to do anything on a HG612, it's meant to be a modem, not a router. You can use it as a DHCP server and have it do routing, but that's not what you're after.

Modem: Huawei HG612 3B -- Unlocked SP08 Firmware w/ BLOB A2pv6C038m.d24j
Router: TP-Link WR1043ND -- OpenWRT Chaos Calmer 15.05.1

Current Connection: Sky Fibre Max (80/20)
Previous Connections: BT Infinity 2 (80/20), BE Pro (24/2.5)

As the HG612 I have is unlocked it has some routing capabilities.
I might have done something wrong when configuring the HG612 (Image)

Who is the DNS provider, BT retail? and more to the point why are you selecting them to provide your DNS requests? Do you want restricted access to the WWW or something?

Just reset the HG612 to its default state.

Press and hold the reset button for more than ten seconds. Then leave the device alone for at least five minutes . . . go and make a mug of tea, for example.

After having left the HG612 in a quiescent state, now power cycle it. It will now be as originally configured . . . as a pure modem bridge.

I have Bt Infinity. I also have reset the HG612 to its default state. But then, it does not handle the connection (the BT HUB5) does.
I just would like the HG612 to work as a modem and the BT Hub as a router.

The modem isn't meant to do the routing, that's what the Hub 5 is for.

When the modem is in it's default config and you connect it to the Hub 5, they will work as intended. The Hub 5 will do routing, and the modem will modulate and demodulate.

Thanks. I understand. But then why people do setup the BT connection on the HG612 ?
