All Set Up!

Well I'm all set up, with the Openreach /r version 2 modem and NETGEAR R7000 along with the MK2 faceplate.

I put the username to bthomehub@btbroadband.com

 

And the password to bt, then updated the routers fireware. I'm using a 1M cat6 ethernet cable from the modem to the router and a 2M cat6 cable from the router to my laptop. I'll post some speed tests in a couple of weeks so it can get used to the Openreach modem from the HH5.

Looking good so far, bud. 🙂

 

What are your initial impressions of the router?

That is good news. 🙂

Mind you, with the R7000 having a dual core processor, it does have a but more "omph" than your average router, so it's unlikely to be stressed as easily under heavy loads. 🙂

Re: All Set Up!

The R7000 keeps disconnecting from the internet when know one is using it by the looks from the router logs, if I change the connection mode from idle 5 minutes to ALWAYS ON should I have this issue?

Hi mate,

 

Change the connection mode to Always on - That's what I have with mine and no probs whatsoever, here. 🙂

If you have it set to 5 mins idle then it will DC after that amount of inactivity, which could affect your IP profile, if there are too many connects/disconnects.

 

See below for a screenie of the settings I use. 🙂

Re: All Set Up!

The router disconnecting will not affect the IP Profile as long as the modem maintains connection.

No, but sometimes the reconnect forces a resynch.

I know that with my other router, the WNR3500L, if you changed some settings in the web UI, then that would force a reconnect of the PPPoE connection.

 

Not going to try it now, to prove/disprove my theory, as I have no need to tinker. 😛
