Re: BT Fon access problems

And the penny dropsSmiley Surprised


The possible reason why the VPN doesn't download as expected, thus bouncing back to the landing page could be down to it looking at the BTOpenzone commerical hotspots and not the residencial BTOz hotspots


(which are the same but they're not according to BT sites)

I could of answered that for you -  no matter what you set on the hub, Fon/Oz will continue on band n

(which may or may not defeat the object of switching to just b/g WHEN Fon/Oz are active (or just Fon on earlier BT Hubs).


tried it, still broadcast n even though b/g only on settings 😞


See, told you so

Re: BT Fon access problems

Yes it does kind of defeat the object when FON Oz are active, should really be grayed out.

Don't know if the Hotspot being residential should make a difference, the vast majority of these are residential (not that they broadcast far or work 😞 )

If this was the case, it still doesn't explain why the BTOpenzone web page isn't visible via FON and Oz. Seems and odd issue to have.

BT tech must have let the hamster fall out of the wheel 😉

Re: BT Fon access problems

There really are some stupid people posting so-called advice to questions in this community. If you have an 802.11 n enabled router and all the devices connected to it are also "n" enabled you will get the extra benefits even if you have four "n" enabled devices connected at the same time, but if you then connect one non "n" enabled device ALL the other devices drop back to ieither a "b or g" connection , this is because the router is designed to run at the connection of the slowest device connected to it, it is crazy I know but that is how it is!

I do hope I'm not one of the stupid people?Smiley Sad


Anyway, the hub3 may not work as we expect


Top device on band g, lower device on band n


As you can clearly see, both devices are not running at the expected lower speed

Re: BT Fon access problems limited access

This might answer your question about IPHONE working

if your llaptop runs windows XP then does it have Servicepack 2 or 3 installed since SP3   Microsoft released a patch that fixed/added Wifi Security WPA2 .  if it is XP SP3 Vista or W7 then I have no idea . If you do have XP and only SP1 or SP2 then download and install Microsoft SP3 or the individual patch for WPA2  found here  it wont work with hooky versions of XP though
