Had a delivery of the latest 'BT Smart Hub' (6a) Type A to replace 'Home Hub 4' - Type A (but am NOT on BT Infinity)
Not able to get BTWiFi-with-FON (as a Hotspot signal) for visitors (who are BT customers using their log in ID)
Spent hours yesterday talking to BT Broadband Support, who just have no understanding, they eventually gave number for BT Connectivity who have no idea what to suggest, got in touch with BT WiFi Hot Spot section who just again mis understand to what the issues is but say it will be OK in 48 hours etc, when I asked why ? there was no clear reason that I understood, however they say I need to call BT Broadband Support or 150, wonderful 'merry go around'
Since I still had the Hub 4, re-connected it, you get BTWiFi-with-FON signal, as soon you connect the new Smart Hub the BTWiFi-with-FON disappears !
There are no advance setting on the Hub Manager as the BTWiFi-with-FON is meant to be a default to ON settings
the BTWIFI/FON network in HH6 is a known problem - see infinity board. I got round it by going to BTFON page then opting out then back in again and my BTWIFI in hh6 was active in couple of days
the h4 works as it is logging into correcrt link whereas the h6 link is incorrect - if you read the posts on the infinity board thet explains the lnk problem
BT Wifi is a 2 part thing, the router and the wider network. Your router needs to physically broadcast the signal, and you also need to be opted in to log in to any broadcast signals. The HH6 appears to lack the physical signal. Opting out removes both capabilities but a router that is not transmitting the signal but hasn't been opted out doesn't prevent access from other hotspots hence your HH4 still works.
the hh6 does broadcast the BTWIFI/FON network and BTWIFI-X but there is a problem which has already been highlighted on HH6 problems as I said I opted out and then back in again and then my HH6 now should BTWIFI as active
I certianily is being transmitted from my HH6 with firmware 21EC
from reading the hub problems it was more that the HH6 was looking in wrong place for BTWIFI authorisation not that hub cannot transmit BTWIFI - which again I emphasise my HH6 is
So are you saying that you can (could) connect to the signal but not get connected to the landing page in order to enter credentials?
