I have several-HP-G54 units. I'm trying to use one with a Motorola Model U10C018 cable modem on Charter Communication cable internet. (system config data follows)
WHR-HP-G54 has been set up using opendns.com
DNS1(Primary) 188.8.131.52 (Manual) DNS2(Secondary) 184.108.40.206 (Manual)
Somehow the system (which part I don't know) is defaulting to the Charter DNS
DNS3 220.127.116.11 (Via DHCP) DNS4 18.104.22.168 (Via DHCP)
I've used these with Charter systems before with success but not with the U10C018 cable modem.
Contacted Buffalo support and while they have been very helpful in the past they are unable to explain what's happening or how to address the problem.
I should mention that we had to manually set the MAC Address00:04:5A:75:D3:5B of the modem in the WHR-HP-G54 set up process otherwise the connection to the internet was flaky.
This would not be a problem but I have my grand kids using the net work and want the added protection I can get from opendns.com.
I currently have the system set up as 'open' and will lock down access once the DNS problem is fixed.
FWIW I'm in the 'toy' mode and can try most anything this group thinks might help.
