Hi @shondkee1,

 

You do not have to change any settings on the Huawei HG659 to connect a different router.

 

If you wish to connect a 3rd party router on your Huawei HG659.

 

the router configuration setting/connection setting must be on 'DHCP mode'

 

Let me know how it will go.

 

Note: We do not have any reference/information to any 3rd party modem/router.

Hi ShaneA,

Thanks for getting to me so quick.  Unfortunately the "DHCP" Mode is set to on.  I have attached  screen shots of my A88U WAN, LAN DHCP settings.

What I have noticed is that they both have the same address 192.168.1.1 could this be a conflict problem, I don't know as I am not that cluey when it comes to modems.

The other thing that I have notice is the colour change of the Led lights on the front of the A88U.  Usually when it is disconnected it is Red and when connect it is a bluey white, a the momment  it is showing a pink colour, god knows what that means as my user manual dosn't meant the meaning of the LED lights.

Any help is greatly appreciated

Thanks for the details, @shondkee1,

 

I'd like to know what option do you have on 'WAN Connection type' aside from PPPoE.

Hi ShaneA,

My basic config selection are: Automatic IP, Static IP, PPPoE, PPTP, L2TP.  I have attached a screen shot.

Thanks, @shondkee1,

Can you try to select Automatic IP and see how it will go.

Note: We do not have any reference/information to any 3rd party modem/router.

In case it will not work. I may suggest to contact the Manufacturer for further assistance.

Hi ShaneA,

 

That did the trick, Auto IP setting worked.  Thanks for all the help, I really appreciate it.  I guess the auto IP is something to remember with these Asus Wireless routers.  Once again thanks for all the help

 

Kind regards
