BT Infinity Home Hub Questions


[link to this post]
 
Hi guys, Iím thinking of going on Infinity, but whatís the actual router and other functions like? I have two key points I use with my O2 router:

1) Can I assign certain devices to stay on the same IP no matter if I turn them off/reset them?
2) Can I set the Homehubs Wireless SSID to the same as another access points SSID in the property (to get seamless roaming)??

Thanks!

BT Retail section might be better,

1. No idea, I assume you mean DHCP them the same IP based on MAC. Never done that I just set the IP manually.

2. Yes, you have control of SSID and channel used.

Yes, you can set the DHCP server to assign the same address to specific devices on the HH3 and you can change the SSID to whatever you like.

Yes to question 1; there's an option to change an IP address (which has been assigned by the DHCP server) and to also fix that IP address so it doesn't change.
Additionally; lease times can be set anywhere between 1 hour and 21 days.
All settings are in the advanced section of the web-interface.

Or you could just use your own router.

You can use any PPPoE (Ethernet) router with Infinity.
