At £100, I didnt.

Might have to wait a while longer.

Did you not negotiate the price if you recontracted? It is often better than the new customer deals.

You can get the hub on ebay for £35 also.

I bought a BT HH5B for £30

How do I connect it up to the phone line? When we had FTTC installed we had the extension kit installed to bring it closer to the computer desk. Do i plug a CAT5 cable into the extension port and the other end into the WAN port?

You need to get rid of absolutely all equipment you currently have, modems, routers etc.

The Homehub plugs straight into the telephone socket, no modem required. Ignore the WAN port, you do not need that, just plug the router into the telephone socket with a standard RJ11 cable.

If you have a modem at current, the cable which connects the modem to the phone socket, is the one you plug into the back of the homehub.
