I've just subscribed to a 200Mbps fiber plan with StarHub in Singapore. It comes with a Huawei HG256s Home Gateway. I'm told that I have to use this to terminate the service and some research suggests that just plugging my old router (LinkSys RV042) in its place won't work - even if I clone the MAC address.
Unfortunately I need to add one static route and the HG256s web configuration interface appears to have no way to allow this. What I need is a static route which directs traffic for 10.0.1.0/24 to 192.168.1.2 which is a port on a local Cisco router that is part of my home office network. The HG256s is at 192.168.1.1 as normal.
If anybody knows of a way please let me know!
I've explored one solution which is to put the RV042 behind the HG256s. I've set this up and it works OK but it slows things down (I'm getting 40Mbps download instead of 80Mbps using speedtest.sg) and I don't like having the extra box there.
I've also discovered that I can telnet into the HG256s and use the command "sh" to get to a linux-like shell (BusyBox vv1.9.1 built-in shell (ash)). Unfortunately I can't find any command reference that would help me to configure a static route. If anybody has any information which can help me here I'd be very grateful.
