Third Party Router to replace Smart Hub on FTTP connection

Go to solution

Hello, 

 

Does anyone know the settings needed to replace the BT Smart Hub with a 3rd party router for an FTTP (Or Fibre to the Home as BT call it) connection.  The Smart Hub doesnt have bridge mode so I cant do that (and anyway I would prefer not to have an extra bit of kit thats not really needed)

 

Please note that this is for FTTP and not FTTC (I know how to do it with FTTC!!)

 

Would be grateful for some help.  I called the FTTH BT team and they dont know - silly me for thinking that the company that provide the connection might actually know how to connect to it.

 

Thanks!

As far as I'm aware it will be exactly the same for FTTP as FTTC, i.e a PPPoE connection with username bthomehub@btbroadband.com and password BT if router requires it.  You obviously need to connect to the router's WAN port rather than DSL port.
