I have BT FIBRE 2 Package with BT Smarthub.
Fibre to the Cabinet. 36-50Mbps.
I have a Mastersocket 5C on the wall (One connection port)
Plugged into the Mastersocket is a ADSL filter. There is a broadband RJ11 plugged in the modem port to the RJ11 connection point on the Smarthub (Broadband port).
I want to purchase an ASUS RT-AX88U. This router has a WAN port on the rear (RJ45).
How would i setup the new router? Will i need to purchase a Modem?
What is the additional cost?
You have heard wrong. The Openreach Huawei Hg612 modems are plug and play, don't pay extra for an unlocked one, it is not required.
The alternative is a Draytek Vigor modem, but there are mixed impressions of those.
I have merged your posts into this one thread to keep replies together. Best not to post the same thing on multiple threads.
You will need to configure the Asus with the generic PPPoE credentials of username firstname.lastname@example.org and password BT when prompted by the setup wizard
