We have put together a short survey to capture your feedback in terms of what BT can do when you experience home Wi-Fi issues. We would appreciate it if you could take a couple of minutes to complete a short survey. Read more from here, Fix my home Wi-Fi
I am trying to download the BT WIFI VPN client from here:
However the WIndows link points to the old btopenzone site, can someone in BT correct the link please?
I have just logged into BT Wifi, and can download the VPN client without any problem. You need to be logged into a BT Wifi Hotspot to download it.
Here is the link to use when you are logged into BT Wifi.
If its the 64 bit version you want, then alter the last bit to 64bit.exe
So the link is fine.
Its not easy to find, as even the link on the BT Wifi page takes you to the wrong place. The trick is to look on the BTOpenzone pages.
I have added that link to my website.
Does BT know that the Cisco VPN client that it offers is no longer suported by Cisco and is outdated.
Also the VPN client isnt suported in Windows 8 or 8.1.
I have downloded the free VPN and had a lot of trouble getting it to work,difficulty connecting, constant cutting out, freezeing my computer when it connects and so on, i tried everything from reinstalling it to upgrading to the last version before Cisco stopped supporting it (5.0.07.0440) and the problem still continued untill i finally got fedup and purchased a VPN.
Why does BT offer a VPN that isnt supported by Cisco anymore? Is outdated? and doesnt work on Windows 8 or 8.1?
Does BT plan to offer another one in the future??
I think BT Retail have stopped offering the free VPN software for their BTWifi service. This could be due to the newer "BTWifi-X" SSID being transmitted which uses the IEEE 802.1X authentication protocol and a certificate.
So I downloaded, tried to install and got the message
Error 28011 Windows 64-bit is not supported by Cisco Systems VPN Client 5.007.0290!!
Really useful - especially when my regular VPN refuses to connect to a BT Hotspot
