Hi @Candghicks7 

 

As long as you set it up correctly, you can use any router you want.

 

Thanks

Hi @Candghicks7,

 

Welcome to the EE Community. 🙂

 

You can find the settings you need in How do I use my own router for home broadband?

 

Hope this helps.

You can't use a BT router on EE BB as the BB username format is incompatible. You can use any compatible DSL modem / router. Do you have ADSL BB or Fibre?

 

In Home Broadband settings you'll find almost everything you need to set up your own router. What's missing for Fibre is:

  • VLAN ID = 101
