Help with setup from HG256s to N66U or ONT to N66U Please.

Hi All,

 

I am currently on this connection.

Terminal Point (TP) -> Optical Network Terminal (ONT) -> Residential Gateway (RG) Huawei HG256s

 

I have purchased the asus AT-N66U.

 

Can someone assist me on the steps on connecting the asus directly to the ont instead of bridging from the RG?

Or can I only bridge from the RG but not directly from the ont?

 

I have to call starhub CSO to request for direct ONT yes? Please correct me and guide me.

 

Thanks in advance.

Direct ONT you have to call starhub and request or PM CSO. After that you wont be able to use your RG which means you cannot use Digital voice from RG. If you are subscribed to the service you have to use a VeCM for digital voice.

Hey RSN, thanks for replying.

 

I am not using digital voice from my RG. But after i call starhub to request. Is there some settings that I must make to the Asus or just plug and play will do? Thanks again!

Direct ONT no special settings. WAN IP will be automatically assigned

Ok thanks! Will give it a try tonight. Thanks RSN. Smiley Very Happy

 

On a side note, this is the most optimum setting i should be on right? Terminal Point (TP) -> Optical Network Terminal (ONT) -> ASUS RT-N66U ?

Yes. Remember it takes some time for StarHub to activate direct ONT. It is not an instant process.
