Hey, I have had a few issues with my HH5 so using a HG635 myself.

I wanted to post here to hopefully save you a future headache.

BT use a different MTU on Infinity, as such if you set 1492 as default, lots of issues occur such as
1) Inability to stream spotify on a PS4 - it will not even play, just pause immediately
2) Inability to stream some content without buffering
3) Devices such as Google Chromecast Audio and Chromecast not working on various applications
4) Gaming randomly cutting out

You need to setup as follows (hard labour into extracting settings from HH went into this)

Name: Internet_VDSL
Service Type: INTERNET, untick TR069
Connection Type: PPP_Routed
MRU: 1488 (this is where every guide goes wrong) Infinity does NOT use 1492 MTU
MSS: 1448 (every guide gets this wrong)

NAT Type: 1
Enable VLAN: ticked
VLAN ID: 101
802.1p: 2
PPP Authentication mode: AUTO
PPP Trigger Mode: Always Online
Internet Account: [email protected]
Internet Password: BT
IP Protocol Version: IPv4

Hope to help!!

Also you can setup QOS at the hidden menu if you wish:

Are you using an openreach modem, apparently that is set to 1492 and works fine... Not been able to validate that as I do not have a modem.

For the standard HH5 without modem.

You can verify this using a terminal on OSX,

Enter
ping -D -g <minsize> -G <maxsize> -h <sizeincr> <host> to run a ping sweep.

It will stop at "frag needed and DF set (MTU 1488)" demonstrating the MTU is 1488 when using BT Homehub 5. Well mine does anyways, this is how I identified it needed to be 1488, as that's what my HH was coming back at.

I'm not really saying 1492 is necessarily an issue across the board, but certainly with a HG635 there are issues.

With 1492 I cannot stream spotify on PS4 and chromecast audio fails to work. Also more issues but they're the big ones for me.

The link I posted does the check for you. You said "Infinity does NOT use 1492 MTU" but it does.

Infinity on the HomeHub 5A, not using an openreach modem reports MTU of 1488 at my end not 1492.

Using 1492 on another router causes me no end of issues.

For those setting up a HG635, as this post relates, set it to 1488.

I did not pluck 1488 out of nowhere, I did testing to diagnose my issues.

EDIT: Your tool is not for me, I work in penetration testing and hence I am against having ICMP exposed unnecessarily, especially when command line can do the job without the need.
