Hey guys wondered if you could help me please?
Just moved to my new house down here in Yorkshire and my girlfriend has
fibre with BT. I dont want to use the Homehub5 as port forwarding is
BT inform me they cant install a traditional fibre, wall mounted openreach
modem on the wall as the homehub 5 has it built in.
I dont want to use the hh5 as I cant open ports so I can access my server
from outside. Even though the rules are set in port forwarding, they are
still locked/stealth on shields up.
Therefore this weekend, when I was moving furniture I brought my bt
openreach modem from Durham down and tried it. I flashed it with the new
SP10 modded firmware and I can access the web console on lan2. Its shows
its connected but is on completely different ips than what the homhub5 will
give and as such I have no internet access.
The modem will show that its connected with sync speeds of 120 down and 40
up, but completely different ip gateway and dns.
I think this is due to it being previously on Talktalk back in Durham.
Im therefore feeling a bit stuck.
Does anyone have any ideas about either getting the modem functioning
correctly? Or should I try buying one off ebay that has been connected to a
bt service rather than talktalk. Or can you recommend a different brand of
router that would work for me with the modem built in please? Cost has to
be kept as low as possible.
Finally - anyone else ever managed to get the homehub5 to port forward?
