I am planning to get myself an unlocked openreach modem because I
am also having issues with connection dropouts with the HH5
What model and version of the openreach modem is the most up to
date and the best and most stable and popular one to get?
Thank you in advance for the suggestions.
Thank you guys for responding with your suggestions.
I have just bought a Unlocked BT Openreach ECI modem model B-FOCuS V-2FUb/I Rev.B rather
than a BT Openreach HG612 modem because I have a ECI cabinet and according to many users,
your best matching your cabinet with a Openreach modem that is built from the same chipset etc.
Hopefully i'll see less dropouts and I will be able to stay connected for a lot longer and my connection
will be much more stable with the BT Openreach ECI modem and the Home Hub 5 as just a router.
I might go back to using the Home Hub 5 is an all in one modem+router if they manage to sort the
OpenRG and PPP IPCP issues with a updated firmware or etc.
this is exackly what i have done got the latest ECI modem to match my ECI cab. can confirm 3 days stable 80/20 fastpath
with the hh5 on its own i never managed more than 9 hrs and sometimes it was 1 or 2 hrs before it would drop the internet.
so far so good 🙂
On the Unlocked BT Openreach ECI modem, how do you access the web GUI that has your full line status?
Do you need to unplug the HH5 from your computer ethernet port and connect the BT Openreach
ECI modem directly to computer via ethernet port to access the web GUI or can you access the
web GUI of the BT Openreach ECI modem the normal way you have is set up with the HH5 plugged
into the ECI modem and then connected to the computer via the HH5 to access the internet?
I was in same position as you, was lucky to get a full day without HH5 resync, so i purchased both HG612 and ECI(latest version)
Tried the hg612 for a few days but connection was still dropping and my speeds were getting slower, switched over to ECI on friday and been connected ever since and i can see my speed starting to rise
I can do without GUI as long as i stay connected, HH5 now put away in cupboard
