Engineer came around today and got my Infinity connection up and running and the speed is fantastic (38/1.7 Mbps), but I have a question. I don't want to use the Home Hub as I have a Linksys E3000, so what I need is the PPPoE information for my connection.
In the HH's settings, it just says firstname.lastname@example.org with no password, which I can't enter in the E3000 (it asks for a password). So I wonder, how can I set this up and where is the "correct" PPPoE information?
have you tried just using a space as the password?
Just did, it won't accept it. 😞 Perhaps Linksys didn't consider this scenario when they wrote the E3000's firmware. So there really is no password?
there is no password on the hub so anything as the password will be accepted as sign in. My netgear is the same but it does accept a space as the password
I got my Belkin router to work with PPPoA and PPPoE by using my @btinternet.com username and password so it might be worthwhile giving that a go as well.
I did exactly the same as daleski when I set up my Vigor 2820n for Infinity (well ,I did use my own username and password - not daleski's!) and it works just fine.
Alright chaps, I'll give my @btinternet.com details a try tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes. Cheers!
Thanks guys - just the infomation I was looking for. Now I know I can use my Billion 7800N once my Infinity is installed as I really prefer not to use the HH 🙂
