I just upgraded to Hub One router, primariliy because the old router I got two years ago didn't do port forwarding properly (and i spend two year swith BT SPort! :o( )
heard rumours that the Hub one should do port forwarding, found it did and was able to setup fine.
However, the linux box I had didn't show up as connected. I had it as Fixed IP address.
After trying a few things I made the linux box use DHCP. which gave the linux box a new IP address.
At this point when setting up port forwarding the linux box was now visible when you try and select a device.
I then set the linux box back to Static IP address and made Hub One set this IP address always for teh linux box.
and I now have BT Sport and entertainment channels. Hurrahh !
I hope it's still working in the morning.
just posted in case it helps anybody (of course this may already be posted elsewhere I did see some threads on the subject, if so, sorry for the bandwidth ;o) )
TP LINK TD-W8968 going spare ;o)
