Fibre 2 Broadband - Smart Hub 2 and Apple Time Capsule

Hi all,

Have been with BT for over 15 years for our broadband, yesterday we have renewed our broadband, and BT are sending out a Smart Hub 2, currently using the white open reach modem, into which i use an Apple Time Capsule (tall type 2TB) with various Apple Airport Extreme's dotted around the house for access points and Wifi coverage.

My question is that is the Smart Hub 2 able to replace our white open reach modem (which we have had since day 1) and have the Apple Time Capsule as our router as per our current set up?

Thanks in advance

Why change anything if it is working. The smart hub doesn't have a modem only mode so can't be used as a direct replacement for the Openreach modem.

The smart hub 2 cannot operate as a modem, so you will not be able to use your current arrangement, if the Apple Time Capsule requires a WAN connection, which it would, if its acting as a router.

So unless you have upgraded to Ultrafast, you will have to keep using your Openreach modem. The Openreach modem will not work on Ultrafast.
