I think it can but I've not swapped it back since putting in the V2 when I got one for a neighbour* and wanted to have experience of it for support.I notice the v1 isn't supported by RouterStats Lite, but I presume the CF for it can be configured to capture that sort of info anyway?
It was. It's usual practice for subsequent versions to be cheapened - look at the Linksys WRT54G series for exampleNo FTTC* here, nor any likelihood of it in the foreseeable future, but I was worried the v2 superseded the v1 technically... apparently not - the v2 actually looks like a cost reduction.
Sorry to keep banging on about it but why not try putting the BT kit on it's own subnet to deal with the ADSL/VDSL stuff including line logs then connecting your router of choice to it? I'll admit that I'm not doing anything clever like VPN here.Question: Is the v1+CF going to give me all the bells and whistles I am likely to want, or would I be better off splashing the cash on a fully open router with community supported firmware?
The aussies use FTTC as fibre to the curb too.I have seen a reference on the web (maybe an American page) that "FTTC" means "fiber to the curb".
They doDo they have cable in your road?
How do I get line logs out of a BT-HH4? I can't even find a noise margin figure. Even if I could get RouterStats Lite to access the HH4, how would I do that with the HH4 on its own subnet?Sorry to keep banging on about it but why not try putting the BT kit on it's own subnet to deal with the ADSL/VDSL stuff including line logs
You can still see the HH4 or whatever on its own subnet. As for RouterStats the earliest HH I've had was the HH5 and the special version for the Type A worked fine.How do I get line logs out of a BT-HH4? I can't even find a noise margin figure. Even if I could get RouterStats Lite to access the HH4, how would I do that with the HH4 on its own subnet?
In my case it was a carry-over from when VM only offered a modem so you had to supply your own router.I don't understand why I would bother. Had the HH4 gave me a significantly better line rate, it might have been worth considering.
Graph from recent power cut(s):Most of my loss of about 2Mb over the last 5 years is down to interference from the bl@@dy neighbours.
When there's a power cut, their stuff goes off, mine doesn't and the noise margin has a large step up. I was at home once and happened to catch it. As all their kit restarted when the power came back, the noise margin gradually stepped back down.
Sod's Law innit. The openWRT "supported" list includes BT HomeHub3 and BT HomeHub5... but not BT HomeHub4 (which I have)If I can assure myself I know how to return to standard, I might have a little look at the v2 CF and see if I can get it to do what I want. If it doesn't, or still feels too restrictive, I will then have to decide whether to take up ETH's offer of a 3700v1 or go for an openWRT supported router.
