    What I am trying to achieve is:

    (a) Have a Nighthawk M1 as the connection to the internet
    (b) Have a DSL-AC68U as the secondary unit connected to the M1 by LAN cable
    (c) Connect the PC by LAN cable to the AC68U
    (d) Set up the Gigaset as a VOIP only system using the AC68U - we have no land line.

    I have completed (a), (b) and (c).

    (d) The base station works in as much as I can page the handset and I can get into the Web Configurator. I get a "Provider registration failed" message on the handset.

    I would have thought that there should be no change to the setup from when it was used in a NBN setup. The only difference then was that I did have a landline connection.

    I spent quite a long time with my VOIP provider who confirmed the Gigaset settings are correct.

    That would seem to leave only the Asus as the problem. What setting(s) need to be changed?

    It appears that I was correct.

    After inputting the correct information in the "Manually Assigned IP around the DHCP list"> Add>Apply

    it seems to be working.

    EDIT: Spoke too soon. Looks like I need a "Networks for Dummies" course.

    In the end it really seemed to be a networking issue:

    On the M1:
    1. Use mobile router as DHCP server: Disabled
    2. IP passthrough: Enabled

    On the Asus:
    1. DHCP server: Enabled
    2. IP pool starting address: 192.168.1.2
    3. WAN>WAN - dual WAN>Primary WAN>Ethernet WAN (and) LAN Port 1

    On the Gigaset:
    1. Changed from Static to Automatic

    and everything seems to be working,
    but, I cannot access the M1 using its usual login details
