Configuring your own router to be used with BT Infinity is pretty straight forward once you know what the basic settings should be, and that seems to be the problem most people are having… finding this out quickly and easily! This configuration is for the Draytek series of routers, so hopefully you can get up and running quickly now!
If you click on WAN / General Setup and select WAN1 you can configure the settings as shown above and below.
Display name can be anything you want it to be, DSL Mode: VDSL2 Only, DSL Modem Code: Default, VLAN Tag Insertion (VDSL2): Enabled, Tag Value 101.
Click OK when done.
If you go to WAN / Internet Access and select Details Page on the main screen you should configure the settings there as shown below.
The Blue Stars indicate the sections you should make the changes at. You will notice that the password for the ISP Access Setup is blank, this is correct and you should just ignore it. If you are trying this on a different brand of router, you may have to enter a password, and if that is the case, the word password should be used.
Once you have the settings in place, you should be online and no longer have to deal with a locked down BT Router!
As you can see, when I grabbed this image this router had been running for a few hours, and at the time of writing this, it has been absolutely rock solid with great speeds!
