Re: Openreach fibre modem IP address


[re: brianzion] [link to this post]
 
They go in the router. You should be getting a Home Hub 3 in the post I believe, and that is an automatic setup once it is connected to the modem.

The BT Infinity FTTP speed is 160Mbps.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 54.0/14.9Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

im in milton keynes MK10 9QR coming off bradwell abbey exchange

Bradwell Abbey was one of the area's used in Openreach's FTTP trial, so it's not surprising this person falls within FTTP coverage.

The OP isn't in MK and had FTTC installed in November, whereupon the thread went to sleep.

Quite what is has to do with the current query is a mystery, but we seem to have answered it smile.

I meant the poster I was replying to being in FTTP coverage, not the original poster (who I'd forgotten was someone different).

In reply to a post by brianzion:
thanks getting back to my question does the modem require a username and password? what the engineer installs
No, the fibre "modem" doesn't need a username and password.

However, the Homehub 3 needs a username and password for the PPPOE session, and the built-in ones are "bthomehub@btbroadband.com" with a blank password.

I believe if you use your own 3rd party router, you may find it runs a bit faster.

You should be fine with that username. You can use anything for the password as it's ignored.

That is a 'customer splice point' so the service is to be over fibre.

The ONTE fitted by the installing engineer is just set up so the the kit at the 'other' end knows what which ONTE is connecting through. Any PPP details will be generated by the router ..... so yes, once the engineer has gone, you can use your own router, as long as it has a configurable WAN port, you're laughing.
