I know Broadbandbuyer sell a range of modems and modem/routers so you could perhaps search Google for
broadbandbuyer vdsl modem/router
Took the plunge and brought this:Billion 8300NEL Wireless-N VDSL2 (ADSL2 ) Router (BT Infinity Compatible)
states its all in one.
So I got me a white open reach box and a Netgear WND3300
The internet works.
I'm hard wired into the router and my speeds have dropped.
I'm on infinity 2 - 76mbit down / 19mbit up
With the HH5 I was getting exactly that all day every day.
When I first ran speed test after replacing HH5 I got those speeds.
Now I'm getting 60mbit/11mbit (Inoticed steam was maxing out at 5.8MB/sec insead of the usal 9MB/sec
Is the White box to blame?
Is the old netgear to blame?
Is this just bad timing and I've swapped routers just when a load of new people have got infinty on the same exchange and are using it loads?
I've changed routers because the HH5 can't handle streaming 1080p. It has a good try but chokes after a while. No such problem with the old netgear I'm using which doesn't even have gigabit ports. Apparently it can only do 85mbit through the lan ports but that is enough.
I thought I'd ask here as I can't trouble shoot the white box and netgear seperately.
Help please and thankyou
In order to rule out the Netgear as potentially being the device responsible for your speed loss, you can connect the Openreach modem directly to the PC and see if the speed improves.
To do that follow these steps:
Step 1: Remove the Netgear from the modem cable
Step2: Connect your pc/laptop to the modem via the cable instead
Step3: Open network and sharing centre on windows and click set up a new connection or network
Step4: Connect to the internet then click make a new connection Broadband PPPoE
Step5: Username firstname.lastname@example.org and the password as BT
Step6: connect, If it doesn't,keep pressing try again until it does.
However, please note that this will stop any other access apart from the PC
