I have purchased a new smarthub that I am trying to install with infinity fibre to premises. The fibre cable comes through the wall into the open reach modem via a green connector which I assume is some kind of optical connector, I have tried connecting the smarthub from number 4 lan port to number 1 lan port on the modem without success so after reading the posts here, I assume I need to take out the modem from the equation but how can I interface the green optical connector to the number 4 lan port ?
your help will be appreciated
Solved! Go to Solution.
You have the wrong type of smart hub, you need a special one for FTTP, which is supplied by BT.
This smart hub has a red WAN connector on it, which connect to the fibre modem.
Under no circumstances interfere with the optical input to the Openreach modem, as you will create a fault condition.
