Hi. I would also like to use the HG8145v5 in bridge mode with my Asusrouter. So in this case, will I need to stop the DHCP server on the HG8145v5 and let my asus router hand out the DHCP addresses? Also, which port of the HG8145v5 do you connect to which port of the router? I am assuming that LAN1 on the HG8145v5 connects to WAN port on the asus router - would that be correct?
Also please correct me if I am wrong - I would need to put in the PPOE settings in my asus router and let that reach out to airtel servers to make a connection. In this case, the HG8145v5 just acts as a dumb ONU (just to convert fiber to copper). I will let my asus router handle and route all the traffic.
Are there any other settings I should take care of?
The wifi on HG is pretty bad that's the reason I want to go with the Asusrouter. Just last question about the DHCP - when I have the asus in router mode rather than AP mode (as it is currently) would'nt it be better for asus to handle the dhcp?
Hi...was wondering if you did anything with any other setting - like NAT (to avoid double nat) or just change to bridge mode and nothing else. I want to disable wlan and dhcp from HG so that everything is handled by Asusrouter.
happy to report back that everything works fine in bridge mode. Only issue where I got stuck was that it was not letting the default internet configuration go to bridge mode - so had to create a new one and disable the old one.
Thanks a lot for patiently answering all my questions
