Just got upgraded to 200Mb plan with Vodafone.

 

Great having extra speed but not so thrilled with the HG659 that came with it. 

 

Before I waste even more of my evening, has anyone successfully managed to configure an LT2P connection on it? eg. to Getflix ?

I got one from BigPipe, but it's in a courier bag on the way back to them.  It is weak in other areas too.

There isn't anything wrong with the HG659 router... It is a consumer grade router fine for many people.

 

I've got to ask why would you even want to do this? I can't think of a single use case for a consumer to do this on their router. Your endpoints (PC for example) can use LT2P if required.
