I am having a lot of trouble getting my HH6 to accept / recognise the Admin password. I have rest it from the default but it accepts neither. Persisting with the changed pwd it may go it on the fourth or more attempt. A total pain.
Yes I have a hint and choose show words, no avail. Any point in asking the BT provider for one what works?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The Hub 6 certainly seems to have many issues. I doubt a replacement Hub 6 will fare any better, you might want to save yourself some grief and get a good third party VDSL modem/router. Asus, Billion, TP-Link etc are all good. Avoid Netgear, just look on the forum for Netgear.
Thanks for your comment. I was going to chot/chut/chat with an agent but I think I'll put the HH5 back. It worked and better than this well advertised product. Maybe explore the brands you mention at my leisure. It only became a problem in the last couple of weeks when the connection kept failing and I ended up with Engineers for the phone cable and reset the broadband once that was done, lots of hub accessing.
In case anyone looks with the same problem I found the Safari browser seems to be the problem. On a MacBook Chrome and Firefox were both happy to accept the password first time. Apple/Safari must suspect something that they are trying to protect you from. I'll hang fire on the 3rd party router/modem for now Liam.
