Thank you so much for helping us lesser gods! I have the following problem: I have 2 Smart Hub6, one of those is my main router and one I would like to have as an extender. When I using your link http://hub.home/ I end up at my main router Hub manager and I can't seem to change the settings of the extender. I am suppose to see the info of the extender, right? What am I doing wrong? I also find the instructions under 11) slightly confusing - could you enlighten me please? TIA
Sorry for being an idiot but it doesn’t seem clear to me which of the two hubs you are referring to at each stage - the originally hub which is ‘generating’ the WiFi or the second hub being used as the ‘extender’. I currently have a ‘spare’ Hub 6 and would love to try this. Cheers.
Simply put, there are no changes to be made on the main hub all configuration is done on the slave.
Try posting on the Sky user forum, as you are now a Sky customer.
This forum is for BT Retail customes and cannot help with other ISP configurations.
You can install openwrt on BT home hub type A. See the ones selling on ebay. Works great. It even support nordvpn and you can attach it to the main router.
I have got 4 routers in my home for different purposes. BT home hub 5 is very well made and still works great although released years ago. HH6 is rubbish.
I have smart hub as main router and another as slave AP. I have followed instructions but as device switches from primary to slave it is connecting but not always pulling the ip of the router so no internet access.
Is it possible for this setup to work properly or do I need to find an alternative solution?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
