Maybe you have one of the dodgy ones, there have been a few of those knocking about, I would see about getting a replacement to try just to rule it out.
My has been connected fine without any issues
Has anyone had this with their hub...either their new smart hub 6 or any other for that matter?,
A few times now my hub looks like it's working but no wifi at all. I've then connected my Ethernet cable to it and I can't even get onto the hub home page. I thought this was supposed to be possible at all times if the blue ok light was on?
This new hub 6 is really playing us all up and whe I reconnected the hub 3 I could connect straight away.
Try taking a few moments to look at other discussions concerning the SmartHub/HH6 and you should very quickly realise that many people are affected.
I'm on my second Smart Hub now. Yesterday after many hours on Twitter, telephone and to three different departments, they agreed to send me a new HH6 smart hub. It arrived this morning.
First one firmware ending 21F4 had faults such as no broadband even though blue light showing (none on Ethernet or wifi) and regular drop outs. New hub received today with firmware ending 21EC (earlier date than the 21F4) was even worse (if that's possible) and this new one wouldn't save static ip's, allocated two on same IP address and kept changing admin password on me so much that in the end I couldn't get on to the admin page so unplugged it and put my HH3 back in use. This is pathetic BT. I've just paid £50 for this useless piece of **bleep** that is better off in the bin. Unbelievable and I've wasted hours trying to sort this out, from helplines to work on setting everything many times only to find that within an hour it's screwed again.
sort this out BT
which firmware is on your ok smart hub please?
i did have a quick Google and funnily enough didn't find anything. I then came to this forum, presuming that because my google search gleaned nothing, that I was the only one with problems. I posted and then when I had more time, searched more within this Forum and did indeed realise that I am not alone. There are many many people with problems with the Smart hub. Wonder if it's software or Hardware or a combination of both?
In my opinion you are best to get a refund and move on.
Don't waste your time like I and many others did fiddling with it to try and make it work.
I have just returned to BT from Sky as of 15th Sep (or so I thought). Switch over to BT was yesterday which happened early evening. Everything went smoothly, a couple of wired devices into the back of HH6 and WPS'd a number of wireless devices. All was functioning well, great performance (wireless and wired) until this morning where for some reason all performance of all wireless devices was non existent meaning although you could connect wirelessly to the hub it would take 10s of minutes for even the bt.com home page to appear (if it actually did). Absolutely no problem with wired devices. Followed all the advice and guidance from BT.com (and other sources), including a factory reset but just cannot get wi-fi to work. Now, in my simple mind: wired connections are fine, meaning there is no issue between the HH6 and the exchange and beyond the issue is purely the connection between my wireless devices and the HH6 so given all wireless devices are not working (they are OK using next doors BTwifi) then highly likely there is fault within the HH6 itself.
I spent hours this morning trying to resolve issue, a good chuck of this time was on the phone to BT, passed to 4 different individuals who where more concerned that I only had the service activated yesterday and that it would take up to 10 days for the service to settle down. I know that on a new broadband service performance can vary but surely that only applies to the link between the HH6 and the exchange or are BT suggesting the HH6 needs time to stablise performance within the home network - something I struggle to understand. Even if this was the case, I would expect an adequate performance level on my wireless devices (as I did initially) rather than wireless just doesn't work.
Not sure where this issue is going at the moment, I had to suggest to the 4th person I spoke to today to send me out a replacement hub..... should arrive Monday. Good that the neighbours have BT but now wondering if leaving Sky was my best move.............
