Cheap and easy!
on 23 December 2013
Had to move to an area without BT Infinity, but wanted to continue to use my Asus RT-N56U Router, so thought I'd give this a try.
Setup was not too tricky for standard BT Broadband, thanks to previous reviewers. Set it to Bridge Mode, selected PPoE, turned DHCP off, changed the VPI to 0 and the VCI to 38, used the user name firstname.lastname@example.org, and used the password 'bt'. Finally changed the IP to 192.168.2.1. (Don't change this until the end, as otherwise you might find it tricky to reconnect to it without using the reset switch). Then plugged it in to the wall and the Asus Router, and off it went.
I've had no problems with it that I'm aware of, and I am getting the same speeds I was with the BT hub. I've now got it connected to a powerline converter, with my router in a more useful room, and there has been no speed drop or other trouble, which perhaps says more about the powerline converters than anything else.
All in all, very pleased!
