According to the help documentation available online, via the bthomehub.home connection to the home hub the possibility exists to disable the wireless connection facility - instruction given to select Settings|Advanced Settings|Wireless|Configuration - which when followed offers no possibilty to disable.
One computer connected to the hub via an ethernet cable and no further need for expansion.
Opted out of BTFON a couple of days ago, Saturday.
In energy saving mode for all but one half hour during the morning, at which time the wireless facility becomes active as does the Mac OSX airport icon describing the BTFON service as accessible.
I would wish to disable the wireless capacity entirely, for the full 24 hour period.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The reason that you can't turn off the wireless is due to Fon.
Once the deactivate signal is sent to the hub - leave it powered up 24/7 and keep checking the status via the hub managers home page, the ability to turn off the wireless will reappear (as if by magic!!)
Ah, but that IS disabled when you're opted into Fon...(BT's way of stopping you from using other hotspots, but not allowing others to use yours!).
Off topic - It's up to you, but your transfer speed is on the slow side, maybe playing with the channel selection may help...
You could maybe get it looking like mine???
(note - currently in the process of opting back in to Fon, I'll post the same image AFTER Fon is active).
Hi DS , yea , I missed the fon bit, Duh.
Re; settings - It's Ok ,it's not my hub ,I've got my Netgear Dg834dg on and I never use Wireless as it gives 'er indoors headaches and worsens her tinitus.
Drop a bomb shell why don't you
"worsens her tinitus" - funny you should mention that, I've been suffering with this since Feb 09 - which strangely enough is when I joined BT and starting using the BTHH!
(apologies to the OP for taking this slightly off topic)
My appologies to for off topic post , but I'll keep it here as it could be of interest to others.
Yea, she attends the tinitus clinic at the Hospital and it was suggested so we gave it a try and it's not cured it but definately helped, I also ditched the Dect phones. I was talking to a BT engineer and he said he is also a sufferer,exactly the same symptoms.
Don't want to post too much about me on an open forum, but thanks so much for this, I'll look into this.
(plus all bar one of our phones are DECT ones)
The FON facility has been disabled since Saturday. When I check FON status, opted out returns. The homehub persists in returning FON Active.
