You'll need an external modem.

Hi @Majidostadi,

Both manufacturer of Openreach modem are simple to set up, usually it is just a case of connecting the modem with the DSL cable and awaiting it gaining synchronisation with the exchange.

You can see more information on the difference in manufacturer here and looking through them, it appears the differences are minor (form factor and material.)

Thank you.

Whilst they are physically very similar I believe it's generally accepted that the Huawei HG612 3B is the better one. It supports G.INP and can more easily be unlocked to provide line stats if required.

You need to configure the WAN connection on the router for PPPoE with your PlusNet username ( with @plusdsl.net after it) and password.
