EE 4 Gee Home Router and Billion Router

Hi. 

 

I'm about to take receipt of a new EE 4 Gee Home Router but for ease of not having to reset all the devices on my network (NAS, phones, Nest, Sky Q et al) I would prefer to continue using my Billion BiPAC 8900AX R2 purely as a home network router.

 

Is it possible to just plug the EE Home Router (as a modem) into the Billion router without having to reset all my devices?

 

Thanks.

It should be by using the Ethernet port of 4GEE Home router.

Re: EE 4 Gee Home Router and Billion Router

Great news, thanks. 

 

Is there any way to change the IP address on the 4 Gee router (to 192.168.1.2) or will I have to do that on the Billion router (bit of a pain but manageable as regards attached devices).  

 

Also is there a setting to turn off WiFi on the 4 Gee router?

 

Thanks again.

Yes, you can change the 4GEE router's own IP but it will also have its own IP in the BB router, which needn't be the same.
