Re: But ultrafast 2 with RT-AC88u

So I definitely don't need a dsl modem of any type?

This is a RT-AC88u no dsl. Because I'm struggling to get it to connect.

Other option is to use BT smart hub 2 as primary and plug the Asus into a lan port and set default gateway to the BT hub.

Re: But ultrafast 2 with RT-AC88u

No there is no need for a DSL Modem, as FTTP is not delivered over DSL and the ONT is your modem.
Does it give an error?
I wouldn't really recommend doing that, but someone posted a guide on disabling all of its functions not needed here: https://community.bt.com/t5/Home-setup-Wi-Fi-network/Smart-Hub-2-as-a-Modem/td-p/1922978

Re: But ultrafast 2 with RT-AC88u

There is no error. 

Just no internet. Most of the time I get a red light for the internet. A couple of times it's white. But still no net.

I'm using bthomehub@btbroadband.com and BT.

Are there any others to try? 

The ont has 3 solid lights on it Los is unlit and the telephone one.

I have restarted the ont with no router plugged in, the plugged it into router and started that.

Thanks for your time

Thanks for all your help.

I got it to work. Turns out, the port trunking on lan1 and 2 was stopping it. Or maybe the Netgear switch it was plugged into.

All up and running.

Thanks again

Re: But ultrafast 2 with RT-AC88u

Regarding the WiFi discs.

I will use the smart hub 2 as wireless access point. I have a wire upstairs. Then I can connect the discs to that and spread them around.

It's a shame the Asus can't see them as meshing devices. But hey ho.

I tend to have my wifi bands labeled differently, like bt-2g and bt-5g, so I know that I'm connected to the fastest one.

But I don't think I can do that on the BT SH2. So will have to make changes to that.

Anyway, thanks for all the help

OK, can't comment if that works, wouldn't see why not. 
It is different systems, Asus does have a Mesh System and that wouldn't work with Complete WiFi.

You are able to split the bands on the Smart Hub 2.
