Windows 7: Have correct IP config but unable to access router/modem.

Having 2 subnets should not affect my connection stability. The reason I have it this way is because I am able to access both firmware's.

If the DLink runs off 192.168.0.1 and the sky hub acts as a modem I cannot then connect to it's configuration interface.

With two gateway's you are guaranteed to have problems and yes it will effect the connection stability.

I'm surprised it's working at all. The only configuration required is to turn off or bypass "bridge mode" the modem/router's router/gateway function as is standard procedure every time one of these combo units is used. The same advice has worked literally thousands of times in the past so I don't see why it wouldn't work this time as well.

This is yet another reason to never use one of those so called modem/router combo units. This is also why I mentioned in an earlier post that you would be far better served using a stand alone modem for this.

I feel like we're going round in circles man. I understand you feel my setup is sub optimal. However, the point still remains that this is a new problem on an old network. This has worked perfectly for the last 3 years without a single hiccup. I have not changed any settings, why, all of a sudden is it problematic?

You mentioned that the Dlink was handling DHCP so I was going thinking along those lines but considering the reliability problem it may work better the other way around. Leave the modem/router at default then turn off DHCP on the Dlink.

The Dlink will eventually pick up an IP in the correct subnet from the modem/router. You can then access the Dlink firmware page from it's newly acquired IP. The WPS button on the side can help it to pick up the IP as well.

Just plug them in LAN port to LAN port.
