Damo-K: I just tested this on the TG789vn and I am able to use the connection from one LAN port to another.  As we are talking about different models and we're now seeing different behavior I probably won't be much more use.  The only other suggestion I can make is to rummage around in the toolbox and see whether the Intrusion Detection or, more likely, the firewall sections have anything about isolating the LAN ports.

Good luck and just for our curiosity please post what you end up going with :)


Ok i dont know what happened, maybe it needed a hard reset or something but all is working now. I haven't changed any other settings apart from your original instructions. Thanks so much.

Great to hear!  And as kyhwana2 said earlier, make sure you set up WPA2.

One thing about this modem is it is already set up with WPA2 out of the box. The pass code printed on a separate sticker which makes it very user friendly. Im also guessing its good for telecom so customers cant complain about all their data being used because someone is stealing their wifi.

No! You need to change that passcode straight away. As for why, see http://underdev.org/penetrate/ and http://www.gnucitizen.org/blog/default-key-algorithm-in-thomson-and-bt-home-hub-routers/

(Long story short, they use an algorithm to generate those keys based on the SSID/serial number.)

There are several previous threads about using a wifi router as a bridge/switch. Basically you should be able to do it if you can turn of the LAN DHCP function. If your Thompson makes this difficult, then most other wifi routers should have that option.

Easy, write it down and hide it under the AP. :)
