BT Hub 2.0 - Can I use this with different ISP?

I use TalkTalk as my ISP and have recently had a BT engineer call-out due to my very low BB speed.  As my master socket is in the lounge dowstairs and I want the PC upstairs the BT man suggested I switch to wireless.


Bought the BT Hub 2.0 on recommendation, but have now read that it can only be used when BT is the ISP.


Is this correct and is there anyway around it?

Re: BT Hub 2.0 - Can I use this with different ISP?

The BT Homehub can only be used with BT Broadband, it is possible to "flash the firmware" to unlock it to other ISPs, but this is not really a simple task.

Why not contact talk talk and tell them you are thinking of leaving, I am sure they will do you a deal and send you a new wireless router, or you could always get one from that well known on line auction website.
