I'm just same as you, not sure how to do that...
Read somewhere, some users bridge their own router to DVG-N5402SP. So total 3 devices.
Not too sure if we can use own router, connect directly to ONT. No reply for my question previously...
Can i use ONT---> Asus RT-N56U?
As mentioned previously, we would recommend bridging your router to the Home Gateway.
Here are the steps.
1. Plug the router into port (1-4) of D-Link Home Gateway using a LAN connection. 2. Do a direct connection to D-Link Home Gateway with your PC/Laptop and enter (http://192.168.0.1) in your Internet Explorer. 3. Username : admin, Password : password (default). 4. Please Click on "SETUP" - > "Wireless Setup" - > "Wireless Basic" -> Uncheck on "Enable Wireless LAN Interface" -> "Apply". 5. Please Click on "ADVANCED" - > "Firewall and DMZ" - > "DMZ" -> Check on "Enable DMZ" to enable DMZ feature - > Select the WAN Port and input the IP Address of your router on "DMZ Host IP Address" -> Click on "Apply". 6. The process for Bridge Connection(DMZ) is completed.
Hi Kai Boon, thanks for the helpful reply and happy new year 2013.
One followup question. Just to check that I could go ahead and configure the bridge mode, using my old router? It's a Linksys WRT160N V3.
I followed your procedures, and at the end of it, I could not view the wireless network from my original D-link router anymore. instead, I can see the "Linksys" but it cannot be connected at all.
Happy New Year!
Most probably there should not be any issue using Linksys WRT160N.
Did you previously set any password for the wireless network on your old router?
can i know why cant we conect this way ?
ONT <-> ASUS <-> Wireless to Ipad
For customers who are using our Digital Voice service, it has to go through the Home Gateway. Furthermore, for customer who are using the Home Gateway that we have provided, it is easier to render assistance when they face any technical issues as we are able to see the connection status.
Yes, I had password set previously for my old router, but I have reset the router prior to following the procedures.
The observation is that after following the procedure, the D-link (existing router) disappears from the available network, instead only the Linksys (old router) appears-but cannot be connected.
When you say the Digital Voice service has to go through the Home Gateway, do you mean the DV must be terminated directly on the DVG-N5402SP? How about customers who are still using the motorola IADs? Does the IAD have to be directly connected to the LAN ports on the DVG-N5402SP? Can the IAD be connected on the LAN ports behind another router that is bridged with the DVG-N5402SP?
Have you enabled DMZ on your D-Link Home Gateway?
For Digital Voice Home service which the service has been tagged to the D-Link Home Gateway, the phone has to be connected to the Home Gateway. If you are using a IAD, most probably you are subscribing to our Digital Voice Global service. For this case, the IAD can be connected to the router that is behind the D-Link Home Gateway.
How can we improve?
