Confirming my setup/configuration of own kit

Good morning,

I've just recently ordered a PN FTTC as my primary line and just want to confirm my setup will be correct as I won't be using the ISP provided hub.

I have a Huawei HG612 modem which will be left at reset factory defaults handing off to a MikroTIk RB3011 which I was planning on running a "simple" PPPoE client on.

I can't find anything definitive to say whether this will/won't work but have set up a BT FTTC service for my mother in this way which works well but wanted to ensure there were no PN specific settings I'd need.

Thanks in advance for any advice given.

Your proposed setup should work fine.

You'll just need to configure the PPPoE cleint with your Plusnet username/password. See here

Hope that helps
