Setup Draytek 2830n to receive DMZ traffic from BT BUsiness Hub 5

Hi, i have a BT Business Hub setup for DMZ - it is forwarding all traffic to the Draytek router.
I cant seem to get internet working through this setup to the clients though.
On the Draytek in the WAN section, under General Setup i have WAN 2 enabled (thats the port the BT box is plugged into), under the Internet Access section, WAN2 is set to Ethernet and enabled but this is where I am not sure what i need to put in. I have options for 'enable ping to keep alive', 'WAN connection detection (currently set to ARP detect), WAN IP alias, specify an IP address and DNS server IP address.
I havent filled any of these in, apart from 'Obtain IP address automatically' which I thought would do it but it doesnt.
If I go to the Online Status section, WAN2 is in green and showing packets sent and received but no IP address details.
If anyone has setup a similar configuration and could give me any help, it would be gratefully received.
Thanks
Andy

should not be difficult.

first make sure you are getting internet on the BT box. If yes then proceed on to login to BT box and disable DHCP on it and make note of IP adderss. so lets presume the IP is of BT box is set to:

192.168.1.1
255.255.255.0
192.168.1.254
DNS: 8.8.8.

plug the cable from BT into WAN2 of the DRAYTEK and assign the draytek the following IP

192.168.1.2
255.255.255.0
192.168.1.1 <<< gateway is the IP of BT box

make sure draytek is set to different IP range for LAN and run DHCP on it.
You should be able to get internet through draytek now.



if that don't work, I have had a similar setup with virgin media business.
with VM Business, they gave you a static external IP which you have to in put the hub in business broadband area, This is the external IP address you put in and then on your draytek you link them up and assign the external IP to the interface on the draytek with the gateway pointing to VM Hub and it works.

hope this helps
