I've got my old Vodafone HG659 router which I want to plug into my lounge and use as a wifi extender.

 

I've read this (https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=66&topicid=201932)

 

What i've done so far is 

 

Installed New router and have Ethernet and wifi working.

 

Plugged HG659 into lounge via ethernat cable. Wall LAN socket to LAN socket in HG659.

 

What else do I need to do to get internet and make it WIFI?

 

I'm getting a wifi signal but 'No Internet'

make sure the Hg659 is set to obtain an IP address automatically from your router, or assign it a static IP address, and then turn the DHCP server off on it..

When i plug a laptop into the HG659 im having to use the IP 192.168.1.1 to access the interface, im also disconnecting wifi it cant connect to my primary router as it uses the same IP.

When i try change the IP of the HG659 i cant reconnect without doing a restore and using 192.168.1.1

disconnect the HG659 from everything else, connect it to a computer thats not on any network then login to it and change what you need to change, then connect it back up to your router

Might be an obvious and easy question but how do I do give this hardware it's own unique IP?

 

 

 

I've put airline mode on, plugged it into the router via Ethernet cable. Logged into the console via 192.168.1.1 and got the right HG659 router
