Alright, sounds good.
You’ll need these PPPoE connection details if you’re doing that:
Password: [not required, but if it asks: BT]
Don’t usually need an Engineers appointment on FTTP New Builds.
Its possible there’s an ONT Mismatch and they need one to visit to correct it. That’s just a best guess though, without seeing the reason BT or Openreach want one to visit.
So looks like the 2nd engineer visit was created in error 🙂 might even have service by Friday but the person I spoke cast doubt on using my Apple airport as a router is WAN port instead of a super hub this sounds wrong to me!
The ONT has a WAN presentation, so unless your Apple device has a WAN port, it will not work.
It needs to convert the WAN into a LAN, with a private address range. It has to perform NAT (Network Address Translation) to do that.
works perfectly 🙂 bt phoned me in the middle of a carol service at my cathedral (I was sitting next to there organ)! to arrange and confirm activation by the time I got home my airport extreme had a connection as had all my devices job done eventually just in time for christmas.. amazing! much better service than virgin media who I was pleased to leave upon moving to my new build
