      Moving to Sky Fibre Max

      Ok, I've just had Sky Q installed and I'm still trying to get my head around the fact that the mini didn't work very well over Ethernet....seemed to stutter....unplugged the Ethernet and it works fine!! worked even better with a Sky booster which the engineer added without question.

      I am currently on BT Infinity 2 using a re flashed HG612 (as per kitz.co.uk) connected to a HH5 using DSLStats this is the Telnet data from the HG612;

      Code:
      xdslcmd info --statsxdslcmd: ADSL driver and PHY status
      Status: Showtime
      Retrain Reason:    1
      Last initialization procedure status:    0
      Max:    Upstream rate = 24619 Kbps, Downstream rate = 129876 Kbps
      Bearer:    0, Upstream rate = 19999 Kbps, Downstream rate = 79999 Kbps
      Bearer:    1, Upstream rate = 0 Kbps, Downstream rate = 0 Kbps
      Link Power State:    L0
      Mode:            VDSL2 Annex B
      VDSL2 Profile:        Profile 17a
      TPS-TC:            PTM Mode(0x0)
      Trellis:        U:ON /D:ON
      Line Status:        No Defect
      Training Status:    Showtime
              Down        Up
      SNR (dB):     17.3         15.6
      Attn(dB):     13.0         0.0
      Pwr(dBm):     13.1         3.2
      For some reason the SNR has increased dramatically (5 fold) but so has the max attainable but this is from dslchecker;

      Moving to Sky Fibre Max-screenshot-2017-12-04-15-15-55.jpg so even more confusing!!

      Speaking to the engineer he seems to think I would get the same connection with Sky Fibre Max and overall would improve Sky Q and may negate the necessity of using the Sky booster.......however, there are a couple of things I am unsure of...

      1) I would want to keep the HG612 in place, this is set up in IP Bridged mode and is connected to the WAN port on the HH5.

      2) Can the DHCP option be turned off on the Sky Hub.....reason, I have an OpenMediaVault server, this is a NAS as well as a Media server for my Kodi Pi. I have recently initiated DHCP/DNS on the server in readiness to install Pi-hole under Docker.

      Looking at the Sky site I could save myself nearly 18 per month on an 18 month contract, my only other reservation is any possible downtime (I work from home)

      Any pointers would be most welcome.

      Re: Moving to Sky Fibre Max

      It seems I can answer this myself by just using google...

      1) The router allows you to select WANOE instead of auto or DSL for connection
      2) The DHCP can be turned off
      3) The ip address of the hub itself can be changed from 192.168.0.1 to whatever ip range being used.
