Hi BB, hope you dont mind me asking, but was it easy to connect a different router to your HH3? What is involved?

...it's also very powerful.
Really ? I had to add one of these to get half-decent wireless in my house... (agreed HH3 is better than HH2 tho...)

Yes, quite easy. All I did was I connected AirPort Extreme to BT HH3 to its gigabit Ethernet port, & switched HH3's wireless off. This was because AirPort Extreme doesn't have an ADSL modem. If using a wireless router with built-in ADSL modem, it's simply a matter of replacing HH3 with it.

So in theory, this would work with any router that doesn't have a modem? No messing about with settings? I want to do the same thing with an Asus RT-N66u but i'm not knowledeable to start messing with setting at least until i get it set up!
Yes. You can use your HH3 as a modem (although it would mean an extra box) by switching the wireless off.
You can use pretty much any old router (ADSL modem or not) as a Wireless AP.

- Connect any port on the HH to the WAN port of the ASUS.
- Set the ip address of the HH to be static - eg 192.168.0.1
- subnet mask stays 255.255.255.0
- turn off DHCP on the HH.
- Set the ip address of the ASUS to be static - eg 192.168.1.1
- Set the default gateway of the ASUS to be 192.168.0.1 ( the HH)
- Subnet mask stays 255.255.255.0
- Setup wireless AP on the Asus
- Turn off wireless on the HH.
- Reboot Asus, reboot HH.

Thanks Joe. Another question if i may? The Asus is only PPPoE, whereas the HomeHub3 is PPPoA (or should i say my provider is). Can i hook up the Asus like BB says, turn off the wireless and run a RJ45 cable to the Asus? Would that work? Dont want to spend over £100 on a router that will not work, and don't know enough about how to configure them. I could buy the DSL-N55u that would work out the box, but want to be future-proof and get the 66
As you are keeping the HH as your modem PPPOA/E is irrelevant.
Not quite as simple as just turning off the wifi and connecting them as they dont support wireless bridging.
You have to tell the ASUS to use the HH as the modem (done by settin the HH as the default gateway for the Asus as I described), and then turn off DHCP on the HH.
Follow the steps I've given and it should be straightforward.
Thanks will give it a go
Can anyone help me,will the Dir-645 improve the performance of Virgin broadband router(30mb)
The DIR-645 will have better wireless performance and range than the virgin. Whether its worth the extra money is hard to say - depends what sort of throughput you get at the moment,
A 645 should be able to maintain a wireless throughput around 80Mb/s at 2m and around 45Mb/s at a range of 10m through a wall according to reviews, which is very good.
Thanks, Another Joe.
