Hi There,


I'm sure this has been answered elsewhere, but the threads I've been reading seem related to other model routers and the steps don't seem quite the same. 


Vodafone have supplied a vodafone ultrahub for our fibre connection. We don't want to use this and have our existing router set-up on the fibre connection and running fine. However, we want to use the vodafone voip connection, and so want to connect the ultrahub to our router to act as a phone connection only. 


I'm just wondering if someone has experience with this model and can post the settings that we should be changing to get this working through our exisiting router?


Appreciate any help here!

I managed to get it working at my work.


I had to setup a new internal VLAN on VLAN 10 with DHCP enabled, and make sure that port was tagged so it could send DHCP requests on VLAN 10. Then our office router NATed the traffic out and voice calls worked fine. It also first had to phone home to the ACS server to get it's TR069 config so that might take a while first.


I couldn't figure out how to reconfigure the WAN interface on the ultra hub to not have VLAN 10 tagging on the WAN interface and just talk untagged as the UI seems completely locked down.


The issue you might face with a home config is having VLAN10 on the internal side and making sure you don't bridge it to your WAN.

I put together a guide for the HG659 a while back, but don't have an Ultrahub at home, unfortunately.

To get this working, what you probably need to do is:
- disable VLAN tagging on the WAN
- remove all connections from the Ultrahub other than the phone service, then connected it to the network via the WAN port.

It would also makes sense to disable wireless.

Hopefully changing the settings is straightforward. If you get stuck, my in-laws have an Ultrahub and I could potentially have a look and give you some tips at some stage next week.
