BT infinity Routers (yes subject edited)


[link to this post]
 
I already have the White box thing installed (ONT i think it is called) and install date for everthing else is the 26th, now from reading here i understand i will get router sent out so i get it on the 25th, the guy who comes round on the 26th is it a simple job of fire it up plug in all cables and away you go, if so why can't i do that myself when i get the router or is there alot more to it, then simple Joe Bloggs (me) understands.

Are you talking FTTP? The engineer might need to do work to fully fire up and test the ONT. The router itself is just a plug and go but with FTTP they are still engineer installs so the engineer would do it for you and test to see all is working.

There are quite a few different scenarios when it comes to FTTP provision, as I think you were inferring, the OP would need to provide a fair bit more detail to clarify anything.

Maybe best an engineer does come round and set up his ‘Infinistry’ wink

Openreach need to activate your ONT. Once this is done (PON light should be a solid green) you can plug ANY router into the lan port of the ONT to get a connection - no need for FTTP authentication on BT Retail.

A friendly but cautionary note...

Making fun of me and my typing mistakes, usually a result of brain thinking of the next sentence while fingers type the existing one, can I urge some restraint towards other posters, with long standing members where the level for them taking offence or just seeing the joke is well understood its fine.

Put another way - please be careful to not scare away new posters by giving the forums a 'populated by grammar police' reputation.

That might be hard as i know very little myself, had the guys come round and do the ONT and left a long black cable that i'm told will go into the router but that is about as much as i know, yes it's FTTP

BT will send you a router, and in the box will be instructions on how to connect to your FTTP connection.

Simple, or phone BT for support on the 26th.
