Finally I can get FTTC in my house after many years of putting up with something that can only be described as broadband in the loosest possible sense.
Still I don't seem to have a great range of options - Plusnet and BT Infinity would appear to be the only game in town and I'm more tempted by plusnet than BT.
I've got a problem in that I need six ports minimum on any router due to the thickness of the walls in my house that do a pretty good job of killing any wifi signal that isn't in the same room.
Now I know that having the BT modem connected to the plusnet router connected to a switch will give me the required number of ports but I'd prefer to have something with fewer power socket requirements.
Plusnet won't support any modem other than the one they supply. So I have three questions.
How easy is it to get the configuration/password/user info off the plusnet router?
Is there any 8 port router out there that works well with plusnet fibre?
Are there any other options that I've missed?
Thanks in advance
