BT Openreach modem Hauwei hg612 unlocked set up

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am running DUMA OS and I have been told in the past that if possible i should input my PPPOE login details into my modem which is what I am trying to do.

I have an UNLOCKED BT OPENREACH Hauwei hg612 and I am on BT infinity from my ISP.

I can access the interface just fine, but i am struggling to set it up correctly to get internet access.

Any and all help is appreciated!

The XR500 handles pppoe absolutely fine, it would be alot easier for you to use the pppoe on the XR500.

 

If you really really want to your login for bt is [email protected] for your username and your password can be anything but not blank.

 

Here is the setup post.

I have the xr500 and I WOULD prefer to use it but the problem there is my upnp table does not populate , i am on the latest firmware and I have had Fraser do a 1 on 1 for that issue but no luck so far. 

Also thanks for the link...exactly what I was looking for!!

Even though the table does not populate it should be actually opening the correct ports, this was confirmed with a user. It also may be fixed by now compared to when you used it before.

Hi, Due to Big Dogs response on Saturday i decided to plug the XR500 back in,  There has been no new update since i last tried (I am on firmware 2.3.2.40) and with upnp ticked, all port forwarding rules deleted, I get a moderate nat on BO4 &no rules show up in the upnp table. Which is the same as when we did the 1 on 1 a fair few months ago. ( UPNP on DUMA OS R1 works fine )

Thinking about getting a new modem anyway possibly the draytek vigor 130 so anybody who reads this if you have any insight on the modem it would be appreciated, i.e can i input my pppoe details directly into the modem and leave the xr500 to do all qos and routing.....?
