EE Fibre: OpenWrt reouter? Extra box required?


[link to this post]
 
Two queries pls:

1. Is there a decent router that works perfectly with EE Fibre (FTTC I think) that can take up-to-date verions of OpenWrt?
I can see e.g. on eBay this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/OpenWrt-BT-Home-Hub-5-VDS... - would that work?

Regular FTTC, not FTTP probably.

2. I've previously had TalkTalk Fibre and that required an extra box with single ethernet port that then connected to a router. Does EE Fibre have the same setup?

thanks,
Ash

Talktalk have no special requirements, with no extra boxes needed for any of their products.

That simply sounds like with FTTC with a separate modem and router, or FTTP with an ONT and router.

It's your choice whether you use a separate modem and router, or a combined unit.

There are very few routers that run Openwrt that also have a modem inside.
The BT HH 5 is 1 of those and will work with EE.

Ok thanks, so I'll buy that eBay one as flashing OpenWrt son the BT/EE Smarthub seems to require weilding a soldering iron or at least a serial cable.
