Just had BT infinity installed at my home in UK, but I have a ASUS RT-AC68U Dual Band Router whcih I used to use in Australia.
Can someone please explain exactly how I can re use this great bit of ASUS kit with BT Infinity KIT
I am not technical so will need very basic instruction if I am to get this right.
thanks in advance
Do you have an openreach modem ? If so it should be just a case of pluging the wire from the modem into the asus wan port.
Then entering your bt username into the asus internet settings.
Found a picture on another thread ...... 1000 words ect :))
The Asus is a router and does not have a VDSL modem built in so you would need to buy an Openreach modem for about £20 from an auction site. Once you have that remove the Homehub from the phone socket and connect the modem to your phone socket, just as the Homehub was connected and then connect the Asus to the modem via the WAN port.
You will need to set it up via the router management page. there will be a set up guide with the router or you can find it online
You will then need to set it up with a PPPoE connection. The username is email@example.com A password is not needed but the router may require one so just enter BT or anything else you want.
thanks , its been a long time since I posted. I will buy an open reach modem and see howI get on.
can I ask, Why the Help 4 Heroes logo?
The Help for Heroes logo is to promote what I believe to be a worth while military charity who support injured service personnel. Hopefully anybody who sees the collection tins may recall the logo and the help the got from here and make a donation.
Thanks gg30340, I have my open reach modem , i wlll let you know how I get on , I work for Help for Heroes and they are very worthwhile!
I have it all set up now, was very simple after I managed to log into the ASUS router. For some reason it wouldnt reset, but I dredged up the password from my memory!
Now we have WIFI in all 4 corners of our home, where as before with just BT Infinity we didnt
Glad to hear you eventually got it all set up and working. As a bonus if you have a Homehub 5 you can now use it for something useful such as a paperweight because it is rubbish as a router.
