We have put together a short survey to capture your feedback in terms of what BT can do when you experience home Wi-Fi issues. We would appreciate it if you could take a couple of minutes to complete a short survey. Read more from here, Fix my home Wi-Fi
As per subject, I have started getting the IPC6023 error when trying to watch BT Sports channels on my Youview box.
The YV box now connects to the HH4 via a TP-Link wifi extender with ethernet port. (I used to use powerline adaptors but changed to this because of the Netflix issue. Netflix now works fine).
I have tried the DNS tweak suggested elsewhere - no dice.
Results per http://speedtest.btwholesale.com/ are:
Down: 37.34 meg
Up : 4.26 meg
Results per http://diagnostics.bt.com/login/?workflow=Speed are:
Down: 37.3 meg
Up : 4.41 meg
(Eventually - it took 3 attempts to work - seemed to fail on contacting the HH4).
I've tried retarting the HH4 (via the button on the top) and the YV box (unplugging the power supply) but to no avail. I'll try a power cycle of the HH4 and then YV box and see if that helps, and also of the wifi extender. I'll aslo try a temporary direct ethernet cable (but this cannot be a permanent setup).
Any other ideas?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I tried rebotting verything - no dice.
I tried a direct cable - it worked (eventually). Went back to the wifi extender - no dice.
The problem seems to be with all internet channels delivered by the YV box. Any channel delivered by an app (such as Motors TV) works fine.
Just done a search ... it seems the TL-WA850RE doesn't support multicast, hence why the YV internet channels don't work. 😞
Looks like it's back to the powerline adaptors and hope BT/YV sort out the Netflix issue.
Well I have my wifi repeater working. 🙂
A slightly convoluted method mind ... TL-WA850RE is connected (wired) to theYV box; and is wifi linked to a TL-WR340G cable router (that I had spare) using a different SSID (and different IP subnet from the HH4 wifi). This router is wired to the HH4.
Netflix works (although I didn't give it long enough to fail); BT Sports works. 😄
Yes - the router wifi is only G (54 meg) but that's plenty fast enough for standard def BT Sports. (I don't have the HD pack for sports).
Use a cable ... I hear that a lot. Unfortunately (as described in the Netflix thread) this is not an option for me (currently), not without incurring serious grief from SWMBO. 😉
Use powerline adaptors ... I did, and it worked fine - for everything except Netflix, which would buffer regularly (see the Netflix thread).
This new setup is to workaround both the above issues. 🙂
