There is no option to download the firmware and upgrade it yourself, which is exactly the same for the previous hubs. You have to wait for BT to push it to your Hub, and there's no published schedule of the deployment.
I got the HH6 thinking it would resolve issues of regular connection loss on the HH5 but I'm having the same problem on that now.
Tried raising as a fault twice as the connection is important to us but to no avail as they keep insisting it's probably a wireless issue. Same symptoms I see on this thread; connection just dies, usually the router still shows the blue light & a reboot is required to fix it. This is beyond irritating, surely I can expect more in terms of relaible & consistent connectivity.
Hi @baggyant and thanks for posting.
Can you give us more detail on your problem. Are you connected via cable or wireless? Do the hub lights change? Are you on Infinity or ADSL broadband?
Another me too I'm afraid. Smarthub on Infinity 2, getting daily disconnects with the blue light remaining on and unable to .the GUI. SH is on June firmware. I tried another SH which worked fine for a couple of days (May FW) however this 2nd SH disconnected too with the blue light on. When I rebooted it I noticed the FW was September! It promptly disconnected again 5 minutes later.
Thoroughly cheesed off with this.
I'm currently using a 3rd party router which works with BT TV.
Dear DavidM, are you a BT person? I can't understand why a company as large as BT has not yet figured out a very basic tenet of Customer Service. If something isn't working (and reasonably IT saavy people take the time to post to forums like this) then the SMARTEST thing to do is (1) Acknowledge the problem and (2) State what is being done about it.
London Underground learned this years ago, whern they instructed their drivers to say why the train was stopped. Once they started to do that, it relieved loads of tension and frustration. As long as people know that the problem is being addressed they are surprisingly patient.
I think that BT's fibre to the street service is a pretty good offering but clearly the Router is still having teething problems. I also have the same problems as all the others on this thread. The firmware update SG4B100021F4 is now dropping connections every couple of days and the solution seems to be 'switch it off and on'.
I work from home and I moved to BT specifically to improve my download speed. When I was with Demon I rarely had a problem which needed a call to Customer Service, but when it did there was someone competent to speak to and the problem got sorted out quickly. The is NO comparable service from BT and it is frustrating and frankly unacceptable.
Do you think that OFCOM need to be brought into this situation? I'm not a fan of running to the Regulator but it now looks like that even the latest firmware - which I don't have yet - is not solving the problem (let alone getting the DHCP server to work with my latest IOS on my Apple devices.
hublight stays blue. I am on ADSL. Would it help if you know what was connected or would that not be relevant?. Everything connected by Wireless.
