BT Openzone and FON


[link to this post]
 
How is the BT Openzone and FON WiFi Access provided on a residential Customer's Router:

1) Do I have to use a BT Home Hub?

2) Is the FON Access provided on the OpenZone SSID? Will my Router show TWO SSIDs or THREE?

3) Can I use my 2-Wire 2700GHV which is OpenZone capable instead of the BT Home Hub?

Are there any gotchas that I should be aware of?

In reply to a post by radiomarko:
2. Yes, two.

My BT HH3 shows 3 SSIDs as follows

Private MAC 00:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

BTOpenzone 02:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

BTFON 12:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

I thought Fon was only available through the HH therefore the answer in light of the subject to 3 is No.
