Do I have to use the BT Homehub 3 with BT Infinity?

Is it possible to use a different router with BT Infinity? I am seeing some issues which I want to test with an alternative router.

 

Thanks Much!

No, there are some alternatives here.

There are some useful help pages here, for BT Broadband customers only, on my personal website.

If you just want to test to check out what the issues might be, you can plug a standard PC directly into the modem and do a pppoe connection from the PC.
