On recommendation, I purchased a HG612 as my cabinet is Huawei and after hacking it and plugging it all up, I got...11/1.1. I've heard various suggestions about why this is happening from interleaving effects to fortnightly reset of the HH5 causing the MSAN to think fault. But surely this can't be right? The HH5 is BT's flagship home router/modem/gateway? The hack is just to gain access to the interface, it's not an updated firmware.
HH5: IP Profile 8.57mbps
HG612: IP Profile 11.03 mbps. ftp://pedrosmisctech.zapto.org/xdsl.JPG for detailed stats fromt elnet
Once again today, I decided to swap around the modems and the HH5 immediately started connecting at 9mbps max, with about 8 real, whereas the HG612 despite many many reboots by this point was still happy to connect at 14 max, 11 real.
