Trying to setup my HG659 and some problems/questions:

1. When I add a new WAN connection by click the "Internet -> New WAN Connection", it only give me the DSL option, no VDSL or Ethernet options (I was guessing if I use the WAN port for a fiber connection it should be Ethernet?), Is this right for HG659?

2. I was trying to setup some internal sub-netting on my LAN, HG659 LAN is, I have a Draytek router ( and behind the HG659 and using subnet The Draytek can do routing correctly. The network is like this:


So I setup a static routing rule in HG659 in "Internet -> Routing Rules -> Static Routing" as below:

Destination gateway (Did not specify source net/mask)

HG659 accepted the rule but the routing did not work. If I specify source net source net mask the HG659 will not accept it, said it is wrong.

So how do I setup the correct routing rule source net/mask in HG659?

I tried the above settings in an old modem/router and it worked. I only needed to set the destination network/mask and gateway in the old modem/router, no need to setup the source net/mask because I want to route any source net/mask if destination is then just send it to Draytek which will route the traffic to the correct destination on the network.

Any help appreciated.

For Vodafone UFB:

Create a new WAN connection, Access type = Ethernet
