It could just be another Hub 6 oddity.  I have no trouble accessing any router I connect to a Win 10 PC.  Hubs 1, 3 and 5 nor any issues with other makes.

It may be worthwhile investing in a good third party VDSL capable modem/router.

EG: Billion, Asus, Fritzbox or TP-Link.  Once you did this all the problems will go away.

Re: how can i access my bt router?

Just bought a Smart hub and after it updated its firmware I could no longer access the Home page at 192.168.1.254 via an ethernet port. However using a wireless device it was accessable at this address.
I found that if you change the Hubs administration address via a wireless device to say 192.168.1.40 you can then access the Home page via the ethernet port using the new address.
Very strange looks like a software bug ?

I finally found out what the problem was, it turns out that my Kaspersky firewall/software was stopping access to 192.168.1.254

The strange thing was disabling Kaspersky made no difference, it required Kaspersky to be uninstalled and then re-installed and it all works 🙂 I can now access the admin page at 192.168.1.254

 

Looks like a maybe stange bug in Kaspersky software that happened after the Smart hub updated its firmware ??????

 

My current problem is geting Chromecast audio devices to work as a group with a Smart hub, I had a fully working home network and I am getting bored with the time I have spent with the Smart hub.
