For example it might be insisting on Vectoring and/or G.INP actually operating and refusing connection to any other hardware.
When using the modem that syncs do you actually have an Internet connection?
Yes, I am using it now and the speed is better than I have ever had, here
i tried my old my old modem and the router plusnet sent me at my mates place and they both work fine. TBH, I am worried about telling plusnet in case they knock the speed down, maybe i should just get another modem the same as my neighbours.
But it is a strange thing and surly the old Huawai modem would not be able to cope with the newer tech like Vectoring or G.INP?
