How can the ethernet cable from the Fibre to Premises Open Reach Modem be connected to the BT-7X2C Router? The BT Hub-4/5/6 had a red WAN socket for this connection but this does not exist on the BR-7 Router. I can establish an internet connection via the filter on the conventional phone socket to the broadband socket on the BT-7 hub but this is only a copper connection (defeating the purpose of having the fibre line installed).
Solved! Go to Solution.
Don't have a lot of info on this router but I suggest you contact the FTTP team for help with this. 0800 587 4787.
EDIT From what I've been able to gather so far the Hub 7 only has 4 LAN ports as you have described. There is very little information available about this hub.
I thought that may be the case but they are the only ones who can help you. Worth bearing in mind if any future problems.
I think the Hub 7 is for G.Fast and may be this https://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.php/2018/01/uk-isp-bt-launch-new-smart-hub-x-router-g-fast-broadba...
No, thats a variant of the Hub 6, it was the reviewer that dubbed it the HH7.
So I got the replacement BTHub-6 router today complete with red WAN socket for Ethernet connection to the FTTP Openreach modem. The BTHub-7 that I received earlier must have been designed for Fibre to the Cabinet where I believe the hub /router is connected to the phone socket via filter. The BT FTTP team member sorted my problem very efficiently.
You are correct in your belief re HH7. Good result nevertheless.
