Setting up HH3 before Infinity switched on

I have just received my HH3 ready for an infinity install on Monday.  I am currently using a HH2a on ASDL with loads of changes - DHCP, Access control and SSID.  Can I set this all up on the new HH3 over the weekend to save doing it all on Monday night or will the engineer do a factory reset on Monday when it is installed?

 

Thanks for any advice.

Re: Setting up HH3 before Infinity switched on

Some person tried before but couldn't get it to work due to the Firmware, which updated when Infinity was switched over.

I set mine up prior to the engineer visit, he was happy not to have to get involved.

 

Worked out well 🙂

Same here, put it in place when i got it and moved all my wireless (all 4 of them lol) items to the hub and set up the fixed ip's for my wired devices ready, once the guy came it was just plug in the modem and away.

 

He said id saved him a good 10 mins work and thanked me for being so prepared

Re: Setting up HH3 before Infinity switched on

Install went well and as mentioned engineer was glad to have it all set up.  He seamed a bit surprised on the phone when he first rang.

 

In total he took about 30 minutes including fitting the warbler, going to the cabinet to switch over , then changing the face plate etc - great job.
