The basic are :

Connect your PC to the modem with an ethernet cable.

Create a PPPOE connection on your PC using the standard BT username. Password can be anything.

 

You are aware your PC will be 'directly' on the internet so a firewall would be useful Smiley Wink

Step 1: Remove the homehub from the modem

 

Step2: Connect your pc/laptop into the modem using LAN1 port (LAN2 is disabled and not in use)

 

Step3: Open network and sharing centre on windows and click set up a new connection or network

 

Step4:  Connect to the internet (the top option) then click make a new connection Broadband PPPoE

 

Step5:  Username Internet@btbroadband.com and the password as broadband

 

Step6: connect, for some reason it may say that it cannot connect, just keep pressing try again if this happens and it will eventually connect.

Thank you for your advise. I am now able to connect Internet through Modem, in stead of through BT Hom 3.0.

Actually, I would like to change router from BT Home Hub to Cisco, but I need to setup Cisco router through modem.

 

Again, thank you for your kind advise.
