I just had the BTO engineer over to install/setup my FTTC connection.
Everything seemed to be going fine until he went to power on the PN router...
Dead. No power/No Lights.
Contacted PN support. Informed them about the issue and said they will send me out another modem 3-5 daytime.
Ok, I thought but what about now I said to the tech-support?
She said: "You can directly connect to the ECI modem to PC via PPPoE session."
Ahhh. I didn't know this so now I am connecting at a higher than predicted speed both my up and downstream speed is quick 38/17Mbps approx..
I am kind of happy that I have at least one connection for the time being until my router arrives (soon I hope).
** I just can see any line Stats from ECI modem as it has no internal LAN IP, I can only do Speedtests to confirm speeds.
Anyway, gutted I didn't have the whole package setup/tested/configured completely whilst the engineer was here although I am not completely disappointed with the result.
Plusnet Waiting for FTTC - My Router has arrived today !
