I thought I would share how to use the TP-LINK TD-8817 ADSL2+ Modem Router as a Replacement for the home hub3
this is Ideal if you want to Have your own more advanced firewall behind the modem such as a ZENTYAL SERVER
Hope it helps save someone else some time
The Settings were all prety much detected by the Quick set up wizard Once I selected BT as the service provider from the Drop down
The username should be entered the same as the home hub 3 eg email@example.com
I found that the password should be a valid email pattern I used firstname.lastname@example.org
I did read in many places the password could be anything, however I found it needed to be a valid email pattern.
The settings at a detailed level if you want to input without the wizard are as follows
Virtual Circuit PVC0
ATM QoS UBR
IP Version IPv4
Encapsulation PPPoA VC-Mux
This ADSL2+ Modem Router only has One Lan Port So you will need a Switch to add further lan ports

That must be a quirk of the router, BT don't actually require a password at all as the authentication is against your phone number, hence generic login.
