What sort of broadband do you have? If you have the Home Hub3 do you have a separate Openreach modem or is the hub connected directly to the line?

If you have connected the Archer to a modem (it won't work without one as it is just a router), have you configured the PPPoE login details correctly?

Username is bthomehub@btbroadband.com and password is BT

Re: Archer a7 router installation

Hi .

I am in a new build and have just the one lead coming out of a large

wall cabinet to the home hub.

I was hoping the new router would be installed the same way. 

I don't know about the login details.

And thanks for taking the time to reply

Ok, so its not a Hub3 as they are very old. Is it SH2 hub with a red WAN port connected to a Fibre ONT?

If so, just configure the Archer with the PPPoE details as previously posted.

Post a picture of what is in the wall cabinet.

Ok, factory reset the Archer to get a clean start. Then just run the auto setup wizard and enter the PPPoE login details as previously posted when prompted to do so.

I assume the BT hub works OK and it is just the Archer that you are having problems with.

No need for picture, you have confirmed you have FTTP. Just follow what I posted last.
