Looking for some assistance. I am moving home and the new house has Ultrafast Fibre 100 available so I have ordered that and will receive a new Smart Hub 2. I use an Asus Rt-AC86u as my router at the moment after privately buying Business Home Hub 6 as this had the ability change it to Bridging mode. Does the Smart Hub 2 that I am getting have the capability to change it to Bridging mode? Or am I going to need to look into buying my own modem and configuring it with the BT PPPoE username/password?
Sorry if this has been asked previously!
in your new home are you getting FTTP or G.Fast?
If FTTP then the ONT is the modem and connects to the router's WAN port
there is no bridging mode in the hubs
It is a new build and I believe it is FTTP. So should I be able to connect my Asus router to the ONT without any issue? That would be ideal if so.
Yes, if its FTTP, the ONT is the modem, just connect to your Asus WAN port. The normal PPPoE details need to be entered on the Asus.
