Recently got my Actiontec 1000 replaced with the Home Hub 3000. I want to use my Asus RT-AC86U solely for my wireless networking. I was able to connect it to the Home Hub 300 using the Advanced DMZ settings but I cannot access the Asus router's interface (GUI) from any web address. I disabled WiFi on the Home Hub. Wireless is functioning via the Asus but I cannot get into the router settings. Help!! When I type in the address the Home Hub assigned to it, nothing displays. When I use the Asus app on my phone, the IP address for the router has a different IP address. How do I change it to work right? Any steps would be appreciated. Home Hub assigned 192.168.2.22 but the Asus app shows 192.168.50.1. What am I doing wrong?
Here are some possible solutions:
1. (Confirmed to work.)
a. Disconnect the PC from the LAN (unplug the ethernet cable.)
b. Connect the router to the PC using an internet cable.
c. Navigate to 192.168.50.1 in a browser. The PC may need to be rebooted first. Windows 10 should automatically configure to the new subnet.
d. Configure the router to an unused static address in the 192.168.2. subnet.
a. Using a wireless device, connect to the router in wifi settings.
b. Navigate to 192.168.50.1 in a browser.
c. Configure the router to an unused static address in the 192.168.2. subnet.
3. I believe the ASUS app has some router configuration options. Not sure if setting the router address is supported.
be careful. If you have a Nokia GPON in your HH3K, it won't work in any of those switches, and you need to do something else, like using a pfsense box with a modified broadcom card, or get Bell to swap it out for an alcatel of huawei.
I'm with Bell Aliant and I'm stuck with a nokia. They wouldn't use another brand. So I'm going down the path of pfsense since it's my only option.
Read the thread I posted in. But the advanced DMZ sort of works. But you can't turn off the wifi of the HH3K and a few other concerns make it not that great a solution. Plus if you're on a 1.5G plan, you'll only get 1G out of the port on the HH3K you're connected to.
