BT Infinity monitoring


[link to this post]
 
Has anyone managed to get either RouterStats or DMT to work with BT's Infinity Modem ?

It would have to work with the modem (not the router).

Yes, of course it would, not used to having them seperate - question still stands though

The modem is locked so you can't do much with it in terms of getting at stats etc ...

Lots of people have flashed these modems with new firmware and unlocked them to get at all the stats and other wonderful things you can do with these modems, if you so wish.

Search out info on this forum ...

Not that I advocate doing this, but it can be a bit annoying not being able to get at line stats etc.

Thanks for the link, I'll have a look at that, but I'm not too keen on touching the modem, I might also take a look at the new Draytek vRouter to replace the modem & HomeHub 3 or even better for me wait until Netgear bring one out, seeing as I'm used to Netgear Routers.

Looks like getting a new modem/router is a good idea. The netgears seem to have a good reputation and can hang onto the Infinity lines OK (again from the BTCare forum postings). The Draytek does seem to be the modem/router of choice.

Many have found that just a new Netgear router to replace the HH3 has given much more stable connections and good speeds- a number of favourable posts around.

Many have seen the "slow down" problem (myself included). You start off with a good speed e.g. 37 megs on a 40 line, and over maybe a day or so it drops to single figures. A HH3 restart, with a new IP, seems to solve it in many cases. It seems to be a generic problem, and no-one at BT wants to own the issue. That said, now I am on 80/20, and have installed homeplugs for my machines, I see 56-64 megs without fail and stable with no restarts required (IPP 66.2). The only difference being the new speed and NOT using the HH3 wireless.

Good luck with the new kit when you get it!

Cheers,

Rob

I have been looking at the Draytek 2750n and the 2850n &Vn, they all look good but pricey, I also looked at the Fritz! 7390 which looks very nice, think I'll wait a couple of months and see whether the prices come down.

Netgear at the moment doesn't appear to do a Router/modem only Routers but hopefully that will change

Ta for this ... but this person in the ref was using a Linksys router not an HH3.

But, I do wonder if there's a similar problem with the HH3 ...
