I check the firmware version on my BT Home Hub

Go to solution

So the other day HH4 (Type A) received a new firmware check HH fw ....but I have a wired hub as an extention to overcome WiFi deadzone. I have now swapped the extention to be the Master (as when in slave is not connected to interwebs & won't receive fw updates), this (used to be extention) is the same model/type but is 2nd hand, not like the other updated hub which I received from ISP (BT). 

My question is; It's been about a week now & still no update to the fw so do BT not issue updates to hubs that are not registered with them? (or s'thing)

As long as it's working why worry about what firmware it has? Can you tell any difference between the one that has received the update and the one that hasn't?

That's the problem, they are forever tinkering with the firmware but never tell anybody what it is supposed to do. It's the main reason I would never have a BT Home Hub and always use third party equipment.

Some icons have changed (on the

Home Network - Devices 

diagram)

 as far as I can see, nothing major apart from that is obvious!

With the update, the data counters seem to no longer crash at 4.3gb

I received a new hub after my original one broke due to the WPS button breaking and it has updated the firmware after a week or soSmiley Very Happy

Seems their must be a database of routers issued or I had a dodgy 2nd hand one?
