SKY ER110 to Billion 7800N

Post by Snowrp » Wed Jul 29, 2020 5:15 pm

Hi,
Getting SKY fibre broadband enabled tomorrow and have been sent their ER110 Q Hub router.
I have been using my 7800N for the best part of a decade connected to SKY ADSL with no problems at all.
I will want to use the Sky hub as a modem only and use the EWAN port on the 7800N as the wireless/LAN router.
If anyone has made the above connection successfully please could you let me have the step-by-step instructions or point me to a previous post in the forum?
I have my SKY username and password already should I need it.
The SKY Hub admin uses 192.168.0.1, the 7800N uses 192.168.1.254 as is standard.

Thanks in advance.

For a proper setup you need to check to see if the ER110 Q Hub router can be changed into modem only mode, then you can set the 7800N for EWAN connection using the client ID section to enter your Sky username and password

The ER110 cannot be switched to modem only.

It's clarification of the setup steps required to get the EWAN port working I need.

I've seen various different methods on the internet. Just need to work out the best one to use.

Do need to make any changes to IP addresses, DHCP or DMZ, etc?

Thanks again for any help you can give.
