I do wonder about the cable being the problem and not the hub too now, John46!

 

I did suggest that in the beginning when on the phone with technical support at BT, but went through a whole bunch of tests on the phone with BT and they were the ones who suggested a new hub.

In that case, well done you also.

 

BT staff do make assumptions based on sheer numbers of queries ... and what "seems to fix the problem" sometimes.

 

Often, without thinking about the obvious.

It could have been a telephone cable, and not a modem cable. The pinouts are often different, but there would have possibly been a bit of leakage between the wrong and right pairs, for the home hub to see a signal.

 

It quite easy to get mixed up, if you have a box of cables with a BT plug one end, and an RJ11 the other.

Indeed Keith ...

 

One has to assume square pin into round hole syndrome ..... doesn't apply.   😉

 

(I could knit a jumper with failed cables I possess, from over the years.)
