DD-WRT on plusnet hub one - questions galore

Hi,

Im looking to put the DD-WRT firmware on my PlusNet Hub One and I was wondering if anyone has achieved this and if there any negative aspects of doing this?

I cant seem to find the pins which require soldering to connect to a TTL and if anyone has experience of doing this can they offer up some advice please? I have capable soldering skills and shouldn't have issues TFTP'ing the firmware but some guidance is always appreciated. Thank you

Hi, 

The PN Hub One is reported to be the same device as the BT Home Hub 5 type A.

The wiki to install Openwrt can be found at https://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/bt/homehub_v5a

 I tried this on an old BT Home Hub 5 I had lying around. I failed :-( lost serial comms with the Home Hub.

Despite being not being a novice with a soldering iron, I found it difficult to attach the fires as the pads on the HH PCB are very small.

There is an existing thread over at:
