I have unlocked my HG612 Openreach router and can access the GUI fine but I am unable to connect to the internet via LAN1 or LAN2 when i plug my laptop directly into the HG612.
I have configured the HG612 to authenticate via PPPoE and it appears to be connected on the web GUI but i just cant seem to connect to the internet via LAN1 or LAN2.
Basically i want to have the HG612 as the PPPoE router, I will then use LAN2 to connect to my PS3 and LAN1 to connect to my HomeHub3 which i will setup as a wireless access point only (i have set HH3 and HH2 to work in AP mode before no problem). I have connected the HH3 to the HG612 and setup the HH3 succesfully as an AP which enables me to connect via wifi to the HH3 and then onward to the HG612 but the wifi connection icon on my laptop shows limited connectivity as well as when i connect directly into LAN1 or LAN2 on the HG612.
i have followed these instructions to no avail
Once unlocked, make sure you are plugged into the modem via LAN 2 not LAN 1
and login at http://192.168.1.1 with admin/admin as the username/password.
On the left, go to Basic > WAN
Under Port Binding untick LAN 1 and LAN 2
Connection Mode: Route
Connection Type: PPPoE
User name: Your FTTC username
Password: Your FTTC password
Click on Submit
The modem will now handle the PPPoE connection.
To have it give out IP address via DHCP, go to Basic > LAN on the left
and simply tick the Enable DHCP server box, then click on Submit.
does anyone have all the details i require to enable the HG612 to do the PPPoE authentication and to enable LAN1 and LAN2 as internet access ports as its driving me nuts!
