App forces my phone onto BT wifi connection instead of my own network.

I have an annoying problem with BT wifi app.

 

If I  travel somewhere with a hotspot it automatically connects me to that hotspot which is fine.

But when I go back home the BTwifi app connects me to my own BTWifi hotspot instead of my own homehub connection. I then have to manually disconnect and reconnect to my own network.

 

Isn't there a way to get the BT Wifi app to give priority to my own secured network whenever it comes in range?

Yes that is ticked but it doesn't seem to have any effect.

Re: App forces my phone onto BT wifi connection instead of my own network.

Dont know if this helps but I had the same problem and the tick box doesn't actually tell you which network it is prioritising so eventually I took "forget" the home hub option, unticked the priority box and then connected to home hub - putting in wireless passkey as password and since yesterday my mobile has stayed logged in to home hub whereas before it was constantly loggjng me out and on to fon
This was my probs, in case it helps:
