Would say the HG612 3B is far easier for keeping an eye on the line with the extra software.

 


Excuse the ignorance, but what software comes with each of these modems (standard locked)? Do you need an unlocked one to get at the kind of software referred to above? What will that software tell you about the line? (up/down speed? total data transfer? daily traffic? hourly traffic?)

This is some software that you can use to monitor your connection. The page I have linked to shows what the software can monitor http://www.s446074245.websitehome.co.uk/configuration.html

Re: planning to get myself an unlocked openreach modem

Very interesting, but I think a bit too confusing for me. I'm not sure I understand where the software sits and, if it sits on a PC, whether or not it is necessary for the PC to be switched on and connected to the router the whole time. Any ideas?

Re: planning to get myself an unlocked openreach modem

I also switched from a rebooting HH5 (had three of them!) to an unlocked Huawei 3B Openreach modem.

 

I don't use the additional software as I am OSX based and they all run on Windows - but to anyone thinking it's all too complicated - it's really not.

 

Deploying this modem gave me what I needed from BT - a rock solid connection. The problem was not the line - it was the modem software.

 

If you're tearing your hair out - and can't take any more time off work waiting for yet another Engineer visit - give one of these a try. What do you have to lose? if it doesn't work out - sell it on using an auction site.

 

Would not trade mine for gold.

No the feeling 10 engineers visits, and have been told recently there's nothing more they can do,    so I might bite the bullet and give one of thses a try.

Cheers..

Re: planning to get myself an unlocked openreach modem

After three months of discussions with some very helpful people - I was eventually told "that's the best it's going to be." And that was a connection where the HH5 rebooting 19 times in a period of twenty minutes.

Actually, the best it can be is running an unlocked OP modem with BTAgent disabled. Rock solid - couple of months uptime currently.

I did get the ball rolling by emailing the Chairman back in January. I would advise anyone else feeling frustrated to do the same. They have got some excellent people who are very willing to help you, and keep you updated, often on a daily basis.

If only emailing the Prime Minister would have a similar effect...
