Hi all,

Happy New Year first of all..

I am a bit of a novice when it comes to router set-up, so please be gentle..

I have just connected and set up this router (Asus-RT68U) but I cannot connect to the router itself via wifi, only via ethernet.

Once connected via ethernet, there is no internet access available on the connected laptop.

I can still connect to the Spark Hauwei modem (HG659B) via wifi.

Any help would be appreciated!

I followed the manual and have the Huawei connected to the ONT and the Asus connected to the Huawei..

Do I need the Huawei at all?

I just want an connection with better wifi that is better and more stable than what I have with the Huawei, plus I want to use OpenVPN.

I want to remove it... I just read that I don't even need it and can connect my Asus straight into the ONT (Facepalm moment!)

*click*

 

you need to setup the internet connection the the asus and remove the hg659 from the system

 

also helps if you include all the information in the first post as it was rather cryptic :)

All is working as it should. Had a few days of hassles, but managed to get it working as I had set out to do.
