      Sagem dhcp reservation/wifi issue? ubuntu

      Firstly, loving fibre. Can't believe how seemless the internets have become. I'm in work now, we've only got a dedicated 10meg circuit and that could have 300 people on it at any given time. It's gonna be a sloooowwww day in the office

      Anyway, We've been playing with getting some n to an openelec install of xbmc (acer revo r3610) which proved unsuccessful. We quickly moved onto xbmcbuntu to get a better view of what was going on. We had it all working. Could browse the internet etc but when it came to mapping shares on the NAS things got a bit tricky. At first we thought the sky router was only letting wifi traffic through on 80 but a quick test of some windows devices showed that the NAS was accessible.

      I usually do all our networking using dhcp and reservations so had made two reservations in the sky router for the NAS and my PC. These are the two devices we were trying to access from ubuntu. Removing the reservations restored all network connectivity. Any ideas people. I might just drop the sagem dhcp and get it up and running on the NAS. Might be noting that our ios devices could not be pinged either while those reservations were in place.

      Once we had everything working we tested some streaming and found that it was possible to stream full 1080p 15gig mkv's across the sagem n network. However it was a bit hit and miss in XBMC. Sometimes the movie would hang just as it started and nothing but a reboot would bring xbmc back to life. shame.

      Dont really trust the Sagem router, had problems with the DMZ function, so just just did a forward of 1-65535 to the same pointing at my Billion router, it all worked!

      Anyway, suggest you leave the DHCP to something you KNOW will do it and can handle reservations. If your NAS can do it then fine, my QNap can, although I leave the DHCP to the Billion.

      As soon as I know the Billion can handle the MER on vdsl, then the Sagem goes back in the box for emergency use only.
