I have got a Asus RT - AC88U and I want to attach it to my SH3. I have tried different options can just cant get it sorted. I just keep getting the "IPS DHCP does not function properly" I have it both SH3 Modem mode and not. When i put it in Modem mode everything crashes. I have got my cable plugged into the port nearest the fibre cable as well.
1) have i got the right Router to have it in Wireless Router Mode or does it have to be in AP Mode?
2) when setting up do i need the Virgin username and password? if so what is it?
3) Do i have to have it in Auto or Static IP mode?
I would love it in Wireless Router mode as i want to use all the functions.
You need it in Wireless Router mode and you don't need username and password DHCP set to auto.
With the hub in router mode connect only your Asus router WAN port to the hubs bottom port and your PC connected to the Asus you should have internet like that. Then change to modem mode and your Asus router gets the WAN IP by DHCP.
Hi, AFAIK You should have the router in wireless router mode, and also the hub in modem mode, The modem should be connected to the router using the Ethernet port nearest the co-ax cable (It says modem mode on my box)
In the wireless router settings, go to WAN and check teh WAN connection is set to Automatic
I dont use VMs DNS servers as I find them unreliable, they can be altered by changing the connect to DNS automatically setting, and using any public dns (I use cloudflare and google)
I have attached a pic of my settings, which I hope is helpful (I have an 87U so its similar, but may have slight differences)
