    Wired HG256s?

    Hey all, I'm having difficulties trying to convert StarHub's HG256s to wired mode. I'm not sure how I should go about it. Here's what I've done so far:

    a) Purchased a Cat 5E ethernet cable and plugged it into my computer and the HG256s (not HG863)
    b) Tried to disable existing wireless connection, but still couldn't establish a connection.

    Could anyone provide me with some quick tips? Thank you.

    I'm on M1 Fibre using the HG256. Hope I can be of some help.

    I assume you are running Windows. What is your network status? Not connected/Limited Connectivity/etc?

    Is your DHCP enabled on your RG?

    If you are requesting static IPs, check that it matches your RG network settings (gateway and subnet)

    Thanks for your offer to help. I'm very grateful.

    No connectivity. DHCP is currently enabled as default, as I have no idea what settings I have to change. I'd like to have static IP but firstly, let's focus on getting the connection through. =)

    Hey sorry for my late response. Your network icon is red cross or yellow exclamation mark?

    Is your network adaptor disabled on your OS? Check your device manager.

    Let me know if you still need help with the HG256s. This RG can be use as normal router provided you have access to the superadmin password.
