BT Hone hub - 2 sorts- Not Techhelp discuss the wys and wherefires

During the past weekend a lightning strike killed my neighbours broad band

Strangely the land line phone was left working.

BT duly attended and deduced the modem was OK and the Home hub was dead.

So hcame back from his van with a replacement Router.

The engineer said the following, ........ ;This not a regular 'Home Hub' its a Business hub - so you might be getting stroppy E-mail for having it - but it'll keep you going until I come back with the proper replacement.'

So what do you all think the difference between routers is ?

A BT Homehub is a modem/router i.e. there is not seperate modem and router.

The business hub looks pretty much like a Homehub3 so it might just be branding.

I have BT Infinity, which does make use of a BT Modem and a separate Homehub, both supplied by BT.

The OP says it was a Homehub 2 hence my answer, however they may have made a mistake and it is as you say.

Yippee it works - up until now I have been feeling a bit lost without ImageShack in my armoury.

A strip of black electrical tape should be supplied to mask the three do-nothing LEDs on the front!

Do nothing LEDs? They indicate that the systems are connected and working! I certainly do not want to hide them.

I confirm Nontek

Those of us that have Infinity have two units - the Hub and a 'Modem'
