So what is your problem?
The poster in that post is happy with the connection, what can't you do?
Why don't you post your settings?
That method uses the hg612 as a modem/router and the attached equipment as a switch/wap. That loses me a lan port on the netgear which I cant afford to lose. Another box to give me that port back is really a no-no due to space and well, that's 3 boxes for one connection.
You stated that the two ports of the 612 can be tied together giving me the desired 4 lan ports. While I'm willing to try this when I get an hour spare, from what Ive read this wont work as expected. When I tried it before by binding lan1/2 to the "internet" service, I lost all access to the 612 via http. By then it was late and I hadn't thought about the cli interface.
I had to hard reset it and doing this lost the firmware update. I'm dubious that this will work but perhaps I'd overlooked something so I'll give it another go.
Except for the lost lan port, it would have been ok although not really what I wanted. However, what I want does not seem possible. A very
knowledgeable tech from within sky told me this a couple of weeks ago and it was him that suggested the vigor. Further reading seems to support him 100%.
I was hoping that there was some undocumented cli command that someone here may have known about.
When I get back to it and tie those ports, I'll take a few screenshots then. Is there anything in particular that you want to look at?
I am not a stranger to this world. In fact I worked extensively on unlocking the voyager 220. That was a long time ago.
