Re: Re-contract on the 1st June for Free BT Home Hub 4!

Hi stuey3d

Did you just plug you home hub into a switcher and the computer to the switcher and then your network into the switcher also

Don't know why they don't use 1gig ports

I wonder if BT will alow you to start the £35 deal early and also be allowed to pay it in full instead of 3 months.

My network is as follows.

 

Modem connects to HomeHub 4 via 10 meter cat 6 ethernet to the Gigabit WAN port, as the Modem is under the TV near the phone socket and the Hub is too wide to have it where I had my Hub 3.

Hub 4 then connects to an 8port gigabit switch via another 10 meter cat 6 ethernet as the switch is under TV next to the modem.

 

Connected to the 8 port switch are:

 

PS3

AV Reciever

Sky+HD main box

Sky+HD multiroom box via powerline adapters

AppleTV

Lan 2 of the openreach modem as this has been hacked so i can access the web interface and view my stats.

 

Connected Wirelessly

 

2.4GHz

 

My iPhone 4S

Nintendo WII

 

5GHz

 

Wifes iPhone 5

iPad 2

MacBook

 

Connected via USB port to back of Hub

 

320GB external hard drive with 50GB formatted in Fat 32 for wireless access, HomeHubs cant read other formats, the rest of the drive is formatted in Macintosh format.

 

Nothing else is connected to any of the other lan ports and everything wired goes through the Gigabit switch under the TV.

 

Hope this helps.

Only if you let them. Don't install any of the stuff they offer.
