ECI modem question


[link to this post]
 
Having moved to BT Infinity from virgin (and really not wanting to change my router) I purchased a refurbished openreach ECI modem online. I am now just waiting for my service to start.

But after reading all the issues with G.INP (since I don't know if the firmware has been updated) will it even connect or should I just return it and eat the P&P?

Feeling pretty stupid at the moment....

It will connect but won't support G.INP

G.INP is only available if your cabinet is a Huawei anyway.

Send it back as unsuitable. You want an HG612, as that will give you full access to line stats for diagnostic purposes.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

I thought downstream G.INP, which is currently all that OR provide, was now being rolled out on ECI cabinets. I could very well be wrong.

Finding out who manufactures your Fibre Cabinet is the first thing required here... do you know what cabinet & exchange you are connected too... you can find this at the following link by entering your address (Not Postcode, As its no reliable)

BT Wholesale Checker

If your cabinet is manufactured by ECI then you've no need to worry, if your cabinet is manufactured by Huawei, you still have little need to worry but may find better performance by using the correct hardware to match the cabinets hardware.

Don't!

It's a very messy and complex subject.

After using the BT Checker link given, my FTTC broadband is served by BT Cabinet 1 from Exchange Basildon. I am using an ECI Open-Reach Modem and how do I know where about is my Cabinet 1, and wherever it is, is ECI or HC cabinet, such as individual features ?? Do I need to physically "locate" them at all and how???

Many thanks

Intel E4300 OC with 2GB RAMs,Speedtouch 585 Modem/Router and Windows 7 Pro !
