How do I enable bridge mode on my BT Business Hub 2700 or 2701?

BT Business HubsIf you're not sure what bridge mode is we'd recommend not trying this unless you're reasonably familiar with networking. 

Bridge mode won't work if you're using the second version of the BT Business Hub 2 (the entirely silver box shown to the right) also known as the 2701HGV-C.

To enable bridging mode:

  1. On a PC or laptop connected to your hub, enter http://home or
  2. Click on Settings -> Broadband -> Link Configuration.
  3. Make sure that the value in the VPI field is 0 and that the value in the VCI field is 38.
  4. From the ATM Encapsulation drop down menu, select Bridged LLC.
  5. Uncheck ATM PVC Search so that it is disabled.
  6. From the Connection Type drop down menu, select Direct IP (DHCP or Static).
  7. Click the Save button.
  8. Return to Settings -> Broadband -> Link Configuration.
  9. Scroll to the bottom of the page, and disable routing.
  10. Click the Save button.

Your BT Business Hub should now be in bridge mode.
