Re: HH5 alternative modems...

 

Yes, the VDSL openreach modems is what the original infinity installs used connected to a router. So you had 2 devices. That was when infinity was engineer installed rather than a diy install.

Does it work with BT TV ?

According to a review on Amazon, yes. I can't confirm that as I don't have BT TV.

"....dont see any reason why i should go down that path."

 

Stabiliy is the main reason for using separate modem and router setup as the Guru's on here highlight often....

 

I still find it interesting that some of the more business oriented isp still pay openreach to install vdsl modems rather than supply all-in-ones . Even more surprisingly BTRetail's sister isp plusnet does as well :shock: 🙂

 

With the  Tplink if you not have already, have a look on  kitz as I believe it has a similar chip to the  eci/r.

 

I have the unlocked version of the eci/r and its excellent* so if the tplink is the same its a thumbs up from me....-

*might just be down to being on a green eci street box though?

 

That billion also seems a good option as it looks simular to the hg612 ? for the  mointoring progammes which  do graphs n' charts.

Re: HH5 alternative modems...

That's the only downside to the tp link, it only gives the basic line stats, attenuation,snr etc no error info. Also you can't use a router stats programme to graph the info as the login is web page rather than a pop-up box that the programme needs to be able to login to the router.
