I thought I knew what i was doing!
Ok so I was with BT on Infinity 2, using a Homehub5 plugged into a mk3 socket.
Wife decided we should shift over to UW. They provide a [censored] modem/router in one.
As I never really like the HH5 I decided to buy a seperate router ASUS AC87U and a openreach modem off ebay.
current situation is my HH5 still works (even though I am now with UW) but if I plug the DSL connection into the bt openreach modem it just sits there flashing.
I set up a PPPoE connection on the router and it just keeps saying it cannot detect my connection type.
my understanding was the OR modem is just dumb plug and play, and the techbit is getting the router working between the LAN and WAN?
Have I missed something or have I got a faulty modem? I have a ECI focus B, was thinking of buying a huawei version of the modem and see if that worked.
Any help would be much appreciated.
