Can I use a BT hub if I'm not with BT as my isp?

just wondered if I could use next door's spare one to rule out my router as the fault click here

Yes, as long as you set it up using the setup page in the router using Internet Explorer, not a BT disc

You will need to use your ISP and User Name in the setup page

Do you know what the address is?

I assume it's admin admin to access?

On my 3Com its yours may differ but you could try mine also before the numbers above for mine it as http:// in front, but I did not put it in front as PCA would have changed it to a click hear link

BT Homehub address is In general a home hub is locked to BT as BT use a generic logon, and identify the user by their telephone number.

Normally the BT Hub will only work with BT Broadband its locked, It will not even work on BT Buisness broadband The only way is to unlock it and this has only been done on the version 1 Hub.
