BT Infinity equipment


[link to this post]
 
Hi,
I am hoping to sign up to BT Infinity within the next few weeks. What exactly is provided a separate modem and router or just Home Hub 3? Are there any alternatives? I currently have a Netgear DGND3300 and have gotten used to changing various settings and I have read that BT don't allow many changes.

seperate modem plus a HH3 I believe. Unsure about your current router, if its an ADSL router then probably a whole lot of hassle to configure for use on FTTC. If its a cable router then more straight forward.

Seems your router won't be compatible.

Only routers with an Ethernet WAN port will work with the Openreach VDSL2 modem, thus the dgnd3000 is surplus to requirements.

If you like the Netgear web interface look at their cable/DSL router range.

No, you do not need a modem. That is supplied.

Can you get a combined modem/router for use with Infinity?

think you can would certainly save on the number of power points etc but would imagine the cost if expensive as there aren`t many around. Checker the fibre forum as there was a thread on a particular model.

There's a few, but can be complex to set up or less than perfect.

As you are required by Openreach to use the supplied modem anyway, and cable routers including the HH3 work fine ....
