Have an unlocked BT modem here from my last stint on FTTC, but I cannot remember the IP address to monitor it. Reset has not put it back to 192.168.1.1 and port two does not seem to be working for monitoring. That said, it works, either with the ZyXel or one of my other routers here.
You are spot on with the ZyXel racing to stupid high speeds and creating problems. It has got to the point of re-syncs again. With or without the BT modem, my TP-Link TD-W9980 VDSL2+ modem router runs lower at 52Mbps and stays there rock solid. I have put the ZyXel back in line after struggling on my own over the weekend, in the hope it will help AAISP sort my problem, though I feel the ZyXel is not going to keep this line stable - Horses for courses and routers for ISPs lol For instance, I tried my retail HomeHub4R behind the BT modem and the blue average laency was off the top of the TBB BQM and totally unusable. Just have to wait for the Fritzbox to arrive.
