So for some reason I can't get ADSL stable when trying to setup a HG659b but figured I'd connect from the WAN port of the 659 to a HG630 (where ADSL works fine).

 

 

 

Using the WAN port from the 659 to a LAN port on the 630 should work I figured, and even though the 659 shows internet is connected, I can't ping the 630 from the 659 and no internet works from LAN clients. Essentially I want to do the reverse of this: https://www.spark.co.nz/help/internet-data/equipment/huawei/hg659-gateway/setup-bridge-mode-huawei-hg659-hg659b/

 

 

 

clients (10.1.0.x) -> HG659 (10.1.0.254) -> WAN to LAN port -> HG630 (10.1.1.254) -> Internet.

 

 

 

I realise I should just get ADSL working on the 659 but don't really feel like being tethered to phone today :D

Change the ip address on the 659 to something other than .254. Then disable dhcp on the 659 and plug lan to lan between the two boxes and you should be away.

I did look at using the 630 as a gateway on the same network segment, however I need DHCP on the 659 for wifi clients (I think). Also there's no way to specify a different G/W on the 659.

Nope.. just disable dhcp on the 659 and plug lan from 630 to lan on the 659. And the dhcp server on 630 will issue IPs to the wifi clients attached to the 659.

Im using an HG659b as a Wifi AP. Done exactly as BarTender said. Except my router is an Ubiquity edge router on fibre. It has been working better than expected. I can't remember the last time it got restarted. All Wifi devices can see my whole lan, And all ethernet devices can see all wifi devices.
