My setup is the same, but just thought you should know that this setup is not bridge mode.

Hmm, I don't know about that since I have my credentials for the acanac internet only on the Asus router.

Well, looks like you're right since port forwarding on my asus has no effect now and my voip is not working

That's exactly what I did when I recently had Bell Fibe TV installed. Right now I have a public IP of 184.147.58.x when my PC is connected to my Asus RT-N66U router, and an IP of 184.147.57.x when connected to a LAN port on the Home Hub. At one time my Asus router had an IP in the 74.x.y.z network while the Home Hub had an IP in the 184.x.y.z network.

I'd just like to say this is either wrong or outdated info. I found this thread googling on how to put the Home Hub 1000 in bridge mode, and I saw your post, and I called Bell tech support. They said there is nothing they can do on their end, and there never has been. However, they said that all you have to do to put it in bridge mode is turn off the wifi on the Home Hub's settings page. That's it. Once you shut off the wifi, your 2nd router should be able to connect to PPPoE thru the Home Hub. No LEDs changing colours, no secret settings they have to change on their end, nothing.mranjith wrote: ↑I have my Home hub 1000 in bridge mode right now. I called bell tech support and talk to the 2nd level support and they put that in bridge mode. Once its in Bridge mode the blue lights on the power and wan connection will be RED and internet will be blue (once your router do the pppeo authentication) and the wireless will be off. It's been working great over a month now. So no the guy above me correct before February and Bell implemented this from middle of February and this is only meant for business customers. But any home hub 1000 (white modem) will work.

Well I did specifically ask for and get a level 2 tech support. If there is some kind of other method of remotely enabling bridging mode that changes the LED colours, it's a redundant feature, because apparently just turning off the wifi achieves the same result - it puts the router in bridging mode. My 2nd router can now connect via PPPoE just fine, it gets a WAN IP and it is now accessible from the internet. And it makes sense for them to program it like that - you probably wouldn't be disabling your router's wifi unless you had a second router's wifi that you wanted to use. Maybe you can also do it remotely like you suggested.mranjith wrote: ↑This is not outdated info. The level 1 tech support that you talk with doesn't have basic info. You need to talk to someone in level 2 support, tell them to transfer you over to level 2 support and ask them to put the home hub 1000 to "bridge like mode" once they done, you will see the LED colours will change as I mention on my post. If there is a way I can upload a picture of my modem here in this post I will post it to prove my self. Again this is only applies to Business customers but anyone with Home hub 1000 should be able to make it work!
