BT Openreach ECI Modem OpenWRT Query
« on: July 13, 2017, 04:55:29 PM »

Hi All

A newbie here hoping this is the right place to come for a query I have regarding my Openreach ECI modem running OpenWRT firmware. Be grateful if any of you guys can help me. Sorry if this is quite a basic question, I'm not the most technically minded person out there.

I have a B-FOCuS V-2FUb/r Rev.B BT Openreach ECI modem running OpenWrt Chaos Calmer r46559 firmware. I would like to use it for my fibre broadband connection, however I would prefer it to be able to handle the PPPoE details of my broadband connection, instead of getting the router to do it. I've been looking through the modems GUI and I can't find an option to input these details anywhere, if it is possible that is. I've also tried to do some research online myself, but finding it quite confusing, with no definitive answers out there. I know it's possible to do it on an unlocked HG612 modem, I was wondering if its possible on an unlocked ECI modem?

Is it possible for the ECI modem on OpenWRT firmware to be able to handle PPPoE details, and if so, how would I go about doing it?

Any help / advice would be greatly appreciated and many thanks in advance.
