I have received my new Smart Hub. I currently have the Home Hub 3.0...I thought I'd just be able to plug in and go...silly me...
On my existing Home Hub 3.0 I have a red cable that comes from the Open Reach White Box and plugs into the Red BT Infinity plug. This plug does not exist on the new Hub...the new hub only has a Grey plug (the old hub has a greay plug labeled ADSL and there is not used.
The instructions suggest the grey plug should be plugged straight into the BT socket...two issues
1) I don't have a grey plug & the red one doesn't fit the grey plug
2) The Open Reach white box is plugged into the the BT socket
How do I install?
On hold for over 75 minutes now...
Solved! Go to Solution.
this is a customer help customer forum your post does not go to BT
if you want help from forum members then
if you have a HH5 can you go to hub manager then trobleshooting then helpdesk and post 1-12
can you run btspeedtester and when first test completes then run diagnostic test and post results must be done with wired connection btspeedtester
are you using test socket with a new filter to eliminate your setup and internal wiring as causing a problem
can you enter your phone number and post results remember to delete number wholesale FTTC check
try quiet line test dial 17070 option 2 should be quiet and best with corded phone
remove the cable from modem ( white box) that comes from phone socket then conenct that cable to dsl socket as shown in the booklet so cable form phone socket now connects to hub missing out modem switch on and should work - plug and play
the modem cable that connects to filter and modem is rj11 and that should now connect to socket on back bottom left of new hh6. it does on mine the modem is no longer needed
just follow the booklet
For those of you who have the same issue...BT do not send out the correct cables for upgrading - they are having to send me a new cable so I can install...that's 1 hour 40 minutes of my life I'll never get back!
Why do you need a new cable, the cable from your phone socket to the modem just unplugs from the modem DSL socket and plugs into the new hub DSL socket.
