I have just received a Bit Hub 2 (BT Fibre 2) and the WiFi at the back of the house is pretty bad where I use the iPad for an indoor bike trainer.
I have a Netgear Nighthawk X8 AC5300 WiFi Modem Router and I was wondering:
1) Can I use this instead of the BT Hub 2? If so is it just plug and play?
2) Will it be better?
If it is definitely a VDSL modem/ router and not just a router, then yes, you can use it as a direct replacement. You will need to enter the generic PPPoE username of firstname.lastname@example.org and password BT. It will probably be better than the hub, you won't know until you try
As I suspected, that device isn't a modem/router, it is just a router and can't be used as a direct replacement for a home hub. You either need to buy a separate modem or use it as an expensive WAP in conjunction with the Hub.
Hello! I tried to set this up but I don't have any internet connection. I tried the password both as BT and blank but no go! Any tips?
