Huawei EchoLife HG612

Does anybody know if you can buy this box, or is it made for Openreach.

Hi there,

 

I'm pretty much certain that the OpenReach modem isn't available for purchase by customers, sorry.

 

I hope this info helps. :smileyvery-happy:

Thanks for the quick reply. Then I will get this VDSL device http://www.dabs.com/products/billion-wireless--n--firewall-vdsl2-router-7RKP.html?src=15, "Billion Wireless 'N' Firewall VDSL2 Router", as a replacement for my Infinity. Thanks Robin

Yep, though ideally you should be trying to get the latest version which has a white power lead. Earlier versions were prone to overheating.

Re: Huawei EchoLife HG612

Mines a model 3B. Reading various posts, can someone please clarify:
1. Is model 3B a later version than 2V?
2.Should I mount it on a vertical wall? Seems like easy enough to do so. There are mounting slots on the bottom, and screws/plugs in the package.

I havent had any problems whatsoever, but am keen to do the right thing to avoid any future problems when global warming causes temperature/sea levels to rise.
