TP link N600 with BT Fibre

Go to solution

Hi Guys

I switched over to BT Fibre today. But BT have messed up my order and not sent the Home Hub out to me! I called Customer services and they've updated the order and are sending a new router out, with the bank holiday that won't arrive until Tuesday!

I have an TP Link N600. Can I use this until the Home Hub arrives? Any links to what I need to change in the settings?

I'd really like to get connected if possible as me and my wife are working from home so both having to hotspot our mobiles!

Thanks

Pete

is that not just a router not a modem/router?  if so you would also need a vdsl modem

No, that is just a router, it doesn't have a built in modem.

On my settings page it's described as an adsl2+ modem router?

The N600 is a router, it may be a different model you have. Either way it matters not, an ADSL2+ modem router won't connect to BT Fibre either as that is VDSL.

Thanks, was just looking at that. I've put a shout out on Facebook to see if anybody has a spare one lying around. If not it's a trip to Argos!

It works just fine. I use on on ADSL and my daughter uses one on VDSL at her house.

I do have some setup info if you get stuck.

Its also useful as a spare, in case the home hub fails.
