Yes - it is as easy as the instructions say! Dont even need to have it connected to the VDSL line. The only pre-requisite is that the computer accessing the LAN port MUST
be 192.168.1.100. The BT defaults are retained.
I am not sure about changing the IP address of the Huwae but the GUI is such that it is probably possible.
It seems to be luck of the draw which you get although it seems that the selection, in theory, depends on the make of the CAB but either will work. I obtained a brand new Huwaei version 3b off ebay while waiting for my exchange to be enabled.
The Huwaei is acting as a modem - it is the router that would have to do IPv6 but the ISP would have to as well.
