Hi All,
I am trying to help a friend who has upgraded to the BT Infinity service. The house has been fully renovated and cat5 networked throughout. The master socket is located in the basement with the Openreach modem and setup in the standard  way :
The aim is to replace the Home Hub 3 with the CISCO RV180 wired router which has full GigaE capability which will link to a 8 port CISCO switch (SG100D-08) and then each port patched into the panel. The Home Hub 3 will then be moved onto the first floor to gain better reception as it is low from within the basement.
I have been trawling around online and I have ascertained that the settings should be as follows :
WAN Internet Connection - Changed to PPPoE
Username - [email protected]  (not your unique personal username ?)
Password - BT or PASSWORD (unable to leave blank in this field) 
Well, after trying for hours with this setup and config I have been unsuccessful in getting an Internet connection. Can anyone give me any suggestions and hints in resolving this problem. It's really pulling my hair out !
I do not not know whether changing the DOMAIN name and the Routers IP Address to that of the Home Hub 3 (192.168.1.254) will make any difference ? What should be the MTU value ? 
Does anyone know if this CISCO RV180 model will work and has had any experiences of it with BT Infinity. The chap from Broadbandbuyer.com said it should be fine !
Any hints and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance people !

I have seen that thread but wasn't sure if that applies to more 'advanced' CISCO Routers plus I am confused as to how you install that config to the Router ? How do you telnet to it ? Can it be done through a browser ?

It's odd that settings can be changed on other brands of Routers in the GUI but you have to install some kind of config on a CISCO Router ?
