@ crispenheadaches

Welcome to the kitz forum, thanks for taking the time and effort to take some pics of your new router, I'am sure this will be greatly appreciated by forum members.
Looks to be a nice bit of kit, will be interesting to see how it performs.

Wonder if you are a BT G.Fast customer or is this kit being issued now for normal FTTC service ?

Most important, is Telnet/Busybox access available, ie., can the stat's be collected by DSLStats or such ?

Good luck with the new unit.

The disc looks almost identical to one of my BT Whole Home mesh WiFi discs, is it connected to the router via a LAN cable?


Silly me I can see it is when I look carefully. Looking a bit more at the images it does seem pretty much the same as my discs. Does the hubhave no WiFi in it so you have to use the disc?

Hi mate, thank you for all the pics!

The cable that you have plugged into the 'Broadband' socket, did that come supplied with the SmartHub? Just wondering as it is RJ45 not RJ11, however the socket appears happy to support both.

I also notice that you have a ferrite on this cable, does it make a difference to reliability/speed on your line?

Thanks,  :)
