Orange LLU to O2 LLU
« on: August 29, 2009, 05:34:16 PM »

Hi all,

My neighbour currently has Orange 2meg Broadband, paying 23 a month for it!!!!!! >:(

I found that o2 works out a lot cheaper for her and am just wondering how to get her off Orange LLU (broadband only).

She connects with ADSL2+ so must be on LLU. Attenuation is 23.3 on ADSL2+ so has a much better line than me!

The O2 phone checker finds her number no problem but will she need an LLU Mac code from orange?


Kind Regards

Jamie

Tbh Jamie I thought it was just a case of moving the line from one lot of equipment to the other in the exchange providing that the isp's in question are both LLU in that exchange.
Is O2 LLU at her exchange,if not it will be on their 'access' package,which is more expensive.

Moving from LLU to IP stream is another matter and not all isp's do this.

Hi Jid
quote  She connects with ADSL2+ so must be on LLU

Is that true I thought that whether you got ADSL2+ or not was dependant on whether the exchange was enabled or not ?.
I thought  you could  have adsl2+ 21cn  or adsl2+ LLU

I might be wrong  :-\

O2 will need a MAC which she should get from Orange.

Make sure that shes out of contract and that theres not any other services tied in such as phone etc.

One question, can I just login to the o2 router to set it up or do I have to install all the other stuff of the CD to set it up?

I've no personal experience of that particular router, but the info on the frogstats page will be the right way to do it. But without installing the other software the http://o2wirelessbox.lan URL probably won't work, so use the IP address 192.168.1.254 instead.

The O2 box may come preconfigured.  Its usually a TG585v7.

If you ever want to use another router with O2 (or Be)..  set up is a little different than all the other ISPs.

I am taking note of all this O2 info as your friend Jamie looks as though they will be moving to O2 before me.   :)
