Shortly before Infinity 1 became available to me I bought a TP-Link TD-W8970 "Modem Router" Now this appears to have like my HH3 a "Lan4/WAN" socket - so is there any way I can use it either to replace only the HH3 BT router, or even both the HH3 and the HG612 modem ?
If anyone has experience or suggestions of how to use it as a router instead of the HH3, do please comment. It had great wifi coverage due to the three aerials when I was using it as a BB router/modem.
User Guide here http://www.tp-link.com/Resources/document/TD-W8970_V1_User_Guide.pdf
Page 20 shows you can set it up as a router. Page 6 then suggests you need to enable EWAN to allow you to connect to VDSL \ FTTC. Not sure how you do that! (EDIT, it might just be a case of using the correct WAN port on the back!)
The index shows support contact details. Alternatively search google to see if anything turns up.
That is useful. I think that I need to duplicate on the TP-Link the settings which are BT's in the HH3, so that the BT modem sees the TP-Link in the same way as it sees the HH3.
I am right now trying to set up the TP-link as a replacement to the HH3
The HH3 has these settings --
Wheras the TP-Link has, under "LAN settings --
Secondary DNS Server
Now how do the 2 sets of settings correspond ?, and thus which HH3 settings are to be transferred - all 4 ?
Well it works, the TP-link TD-W8970 set as a "wireless router" --
This on Infinity 1, about 300 meters from the Cabinet
Using a scanner the signal strength, formerly around -70 dBm at my computer , is now showing -63 dBm, while the S/N ratio has also increased from 29 to around 36.
I entered on the TP-Link the 2 DNS addresses taken from the HH3's settings, but not the other 2 HH3 addresses noted above - on the TP-Link I left these address lines blank.
