BT Home Hub 4 on O2?


[link to this post]
 
I have acquired a Home Hub 4 and want to use it on O2 Broadband. I currently have the Thompson router. I understand BT are to market the HH4 for use on other Isps so I assume it should be possible to connect. I can get sync on the line but how do I change the settings to suit O2? my O2 user name and passwords are blank but the HH will not accept this.

I have connected as a access point but would prefer to use the HH as a router too. Any thoughts?

Is it worth the bother, seeing as you won't be on O2 for much longer?

You need to set VPI/VCI to 0/101 and Encapsulation LLC. I think the name and password fields disappear then.

There is no option to set these values.

Can't use it on O2 then, I'm afraid.
