HG612 Setup and Config

Hello
I got hold of an HG612 and replaced the firmware with the latest unlocked version with a Webui recommended by Kitz.

I want to use this as a FTTC/VDSL modem and connect it to my Google WiFi router for the WiFi and DHCP etc.

I plugged in the HG612 into the line and it seemed to connect however I have not yet found where I configure any username password combinations.
When I plugged my laptop into eth1 and eth2 I could not seem to get out to the outside world.

Given my setup plan, can anyone help with what setting I need, such as do I leave this in bridged mode or change it?

I would like to make use of both available ethernet ports, one into my WiFi router and one into the main homeplug, is this possible?

Do I need to set up my account info somewhere to get the PPPoE/A to connect?

I appreciate any help 😊

Ahhh ,I've found where I configure the PPPoE details on the Google Wifi and having set this, the connection works fine using the default settings on the Modem.

 

I've resolved this now.

Re: HG612 Setup and Config

Good to hear you got it working, I was going to reply to your first post but having very little knowledge of the Google Wifi I waited to see if anyone else responded. I had a quick look at Google wifi set up and saw no information about setting up the PPPoE info which is what is needed to work with the modem in its default bridge mode. Now you've cracked it.Smiley
