[Networking] Gen4 Known Router Incompatibilities?

Are there any known issues with the HT1000 and any brands or models of routers? Fixing to replace my very old D-Link DWL-900ap+ and trying to head issues off at the pass, so to speak.

Any newer router should work fine....

Keep in the mind the default IP on the HN1000 is 192.168.0.1 which is the default on a lot of routers out of the box.

Just change the default to something like 192.168.1.1 and all should be good.

I had issues both with a cheap T-Link router and an expensive Cradlepoint router. The problem was that the modem wouldn't work from the modem ports but worked from the switch ports on the router as well a wired ethernet switch. I finally got the Cradlepoint working by adjusting the DNS addresses. The poster above already explained that you will likely have to change the IP address of your router. I put mine on 192.168.0.3 and it works fine.

Thanks, all. I'm looking at this ASUS or this D-Link.

D-Link is one of the ones that default to 192.168.0.1 I don't know about the Asus.

Incidentally, putting a router designed for Hughes on 192.168.0.3 is a *terrible* idea. Perhaps explains why the poster could not get it to work except as a switch!

You have to put it on something outside the 192.168.0.x block. Linksys for example default to 192.168.1.1 which is fine.

Because you now have two routers on the same network segment (the hughes modem is a router also). Routers are designed to join two different network segments, not to compete for the same space. When the LAN side and WAN side of a router have the same space (and 192.168.0.1/192.168.0.3 share the same space) it literally *cannot* route packets between the two.

Switches, on the other hand, are designed to move packets within a network segment.
