No internet freezes here with HH6. Using Firefox mainly, sometimes Chrome.

Re: BT Smart Hub (Home Hub 6) Bug Reporting + Improvements

Anyone here know how to turn off the BT wifi hot-spot off the 6? I wonder if that's a contributing factor to 3 hubs getting bricked?

Re: BT Smart Hub (Home Hub 6) Bug Reporting + Improvements

BT Wifi opt out page : Check status with ability to opt out/opt in.

Not sure if it makes any difference to potential 'bricking'.

Never found it useful as signal/speed seems to be very limited

and uses <10% of available bandwidth if I understand it right.

More a last resort feature when out and about.

Re: BT Smart Hub (Home Hub 6) Bug Reporting + Improvements

I moved my router yesterday so I thought I woud unplug my TP Link VR900 and try the smart hub to see if anything has improved.
This time all my Android devices and laptops connected first time, great I thought, but then my sons iphone and the 2 ipads would not connect showing "no internet connection" I pesevered for a little while again, factory reset changing wireless name etc etc, but to no avail. Back it went in the wardrobe and VR900 plugged back in for a faultless connection!

And those 7 were the good ones? It makes you wonder what the other 109 were like ... 😛

Re: BT Smart Hub (Home Hub 6) Bug Reporting + Improvements

The releases mentioned are the ones I'm aware of - and they total 6 rather than 7, don't they?

Well, it was late in the evening and possibly past your bedtime. Smiley Wink

 

Anyway, the principle holds: rather a lot of attempts to get the firmware right with not a great deal of success. Let's hope the Smart Hub does better in 2017 than in 2016.
