Help with dual HomeHub setup?


[link to this post]
 
Hi Everyone,

First post for me, hope you can help.

I am running a HomeHub 2 and in another part of the house wanting to connect a HomeHub 3 (connected by ethernet).
Can anyone help me with the settings and configuration I would need to change to get this to work?
In an ideal world, I would like to be able to use ethernet and wireless from both hubs and share files from my NAS over both networks.

Thanks for any help,

Chris.

Merry Christmas!

On the HH3, disable its DHCP server, and ensure it does not have the same IP address for its LAN side as the HH2.

Then connect it via ethernet using one of the LAN ports.

Basically making it behave like a wireless access point.

When setting up the HH3, don't forget that the USB port on the HH2 resides, iirc, at 192.168.1.253. It's possible to use a USB drive as a (slow) NAS or a printer as a networked printer from this port.
