PfSense using BT Business Hub as Modem w/ static IPs



  • Hi there,

    I am currently trying to setup a pfSense router for use in my home network. I have a single static IP provided by BT, and am using the business hub 5 as a modem.

    To set this up, I have tried to do the following:

    1. Set the Business Hub 5 to Bridge mode.
    2. Setup PPPoE using the credentials supplied by BT (email ending @btclick.com)
    3. Added the Google DNS servers (8.8.8.8…). Have also tried BT ones.
    4. Ethernet from router to modem goes via the modem's WAN port.

    Having done this, the router shows a connection timeout using PPPoE in the System Log. While we can access the panel and LAN appears to work correctly, WAN is currently a no go.

    Any suggestions (step by step would be helpful) as to how to setup WAN with a BT hub as the modem?
