If you're in an FTTC area then technically its VDSL and you need a modem or router that understands VDSL such as the routers Sky SR102 or the BT HomeHub 5 or a modem such as the Huawei HG612 or the ECI. The VDSL doesn't expose these settings.

If you're lucky enough to be in an FTTP area then BT also sell this as Infinity and you have to have a BT modem that you can connect any router to.

Sky's question is ADSL only related.

FTTC is advertised as fibre, but the actual signal into your home is over a copper wire using the VDSL protocol. The fibre stops at the big green box in the street. This is why many people dislike the term 'fibre' being used, except for FTTP. Virgin Media started this nonsense I believe and BT copied :-/

Any help with the LLC VC query on fibre (if I am) is it correct you have no LLC VC

As you have an openreach modem you have no LLC VC settings. Your only choice is to connect an ethernet device and use PPPoE with username/password.

Correct, there is no LLC VC on fibre. Put your router in PPPoE mode and enter your username/pw.

Sky have asked me
Is your ISP Sky or BT Retail?

If BT, Why are you talking to Sky?

If Sky, you are not on BT Infinity, which is only a trademark of BT Retail. Your fibre is FTTC provided by BT Openreach, via BT Wholesale. And why are you posting in this forum?

Also, if Sky, you will not have been offered a BT Hub which is only supplied by BT Retail.

I think you are confused between BT Retail's proprietary BT Infinity and the FTTC sold by all other ISPs.

Do a forced update on your sky box as the previous update may have become corrupt:

1) Turn off mains power to the sky box
2) Whilst holding the 'backup' button on top of the sky box, switch on the power
3) Keep the 'backup' button pressed until you see the 4 led's lit up (takes 5-10 sec)
4) Let go of the backup button and wait 10-15 mins whilst the box checks and upgrades fw if necessary

If this doesn't work try a wired ethernet connection from the sky box to your router. If On Demand works via ethernet it means your (sky?) wireless connector has gone tits up and you should ask Sky to replace it free of charge if still under warranty.
