Re: Sky DSL, HG612 and Netgear WNR 2000


[re: SteelArt] [link to this post]
 
You lose one LAN port on the WNR 2000 but there is a spare one on the HG612.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

I am grateful for the help proffered but posting screenshots of every combination I have tried would be both very time consuming and would yield no useful purpose
Except that it might help others

My original settings for the hg612 were exactly as posted in the thread you pointed to. I was thinking of playing with ddwrt but after reading that, I think I'll ebay the hg612 and go for a one box solution.

How? If it doesn't work? Using a modem+router combo (612 included) on any other service is very well documented but as it was a sky connection that was asked about and specifically mentioned in the thread header, there is no point whatsoever.

Interesting! How would that work? dhcp etc would need to be disabled on the 612 and I'm not sure whether both ports can be successfully tied.

You're not the only Sky customer you know.

What a strange reply?????
It matters not whether I am the only sky customer or whether there are 50000000000 more.
What I was attempting to do with the equipment I have cannot be done and that is that!!!

Concise instructions from anyone who can successfully prove otherwise would be welcome but otherwise there is little point in continuing this thread.

No. You disable the DHCP on the WNR 2000, as I said earlier. It becomes a switch + access point. The 612 becomes the modem/router. This is a very common type of setup.

If the HG612 has the IP address from Sky, it simply passes the IP address to the router using DHCP spoofing.
