Full Fibre 500 installation - Replace Smart Hub 2 with Linksys MR8300

Go to solution

Hi, I have recently been connected to Full Fibre 500 (FTTP) and issued with a Smart Hub 2 which I want to replace with a Linksys MR8300 mesh router.

The Linksys app did not manage to make an internet connection and suggested I may need to input some ISP settings! I have no idea how the Openreach ONT identifies itself to the ISP, and what settings should be input. The options are an IP address, PPPoE and something to do with a VLAN.

Can anyone assist me with how to crack this particular nut please?

You just need connection type of PPPoE and enter user ID bthomehub@btbroadband.com with password BT.
