hi all just got bt infinity in yesterday and its fine,if i leave my pc on it wont loss connection but as soon as i shut pc down then back on later i have to reboot the openreach box to get the internet on,all blue lights are on and all the 3 lights on the openreach box are on but still have to reboot it everytime any one got any ideas please
hi john46 thanks for the help but im wired,i just dont seem to get stable connection and im scared to switch my pc of now but the installer has put the homehub sitting on top of the openreach modem so i dont no if it could be that
I have had the exact same issue, I have a new homehub coming Monday from BT as I suspect this is the issue, over the last 3 days I have been directly connected to the Openreach white modem via Ethernet PPPOE connection and have had no issues. I suggest you try this out if you're confident enough to do so.
thanks UrbanGrunt im not that good with networking but if you could explain a bit more how to do this i wil give it a try please,and thanks to all for the help,ive moved the modem away from the hub and its on the wall now so will see how that goes till tomorrow,
Sure, I'm new to this too but this is how I got it to connect.
Step 1: Remove the homehub from the modem
Step2: Connect your pc/laptop into the modem using LAN1 port
Step3: Open network and sharing centre on windows and click set up a new connection or network
Step4: Connect to the internet (the top option) then click make a new connection Broadband PPPoE
Step5: Username Internet@btbroadband.com and the password as broadband
Step6: connect, for some reason it may say that it cannot connect, just keep pressing try again if this happens and it will eventually connect.
If you don’t get any problems while connected like this it’s likely that your homehub is causing stability issues as I think mine was, my best advice would be to contact the mods about this as they are very good at sorting problems.
I hope this helps.
