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?)
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?
yes, that's correct.
Hi sylver 123
how are you finding the 3300 its been a while since you got it. Ive been on infinity now for seven months and had nothing but trouble including six different hubs, but was wondering if one of these might help
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.
