There will be occasions where BE Members may prefer to use their own solution over the BeBox
This page is to help those interested in using or are considering using alternative routers instead of the BeBox.
BE tech support will only be able to provide support for the bebox and for connection/speed problems etc. It is necessary for the Bebox to be connected to the master/test socket so issues can be reproduced before raising a ticket or contacting support.

INP Setting for non-Broadcom chipset routers
INP refers to a setting at the exchange end of an ADSL2+ service and relates to how it handles an issue called Impulse Noise. If your ADSL2+ compatible router is NOT based on a Broadcom ADSL chipset, the default INP setting may result in your router never connecting at speeds above about 7.5Mbit/sec even if line conditions would support a much faster connection speed. You can alert BE (or your BE service reseller) that you need your INP setting changed (normally from 2 to 1) and this may speed up your connection. The Draytek support Web site has a good explanation of the issue (which not only affects Draytek routers) here: http://www.support.draytek.co.uk/kb_vigor_inp.html
