There is a BTWifi app for Android but as far as I know there is no app for Windows so you have to log on through your laptop browser using your master email address and password.
Same query really, I have a Windows 7 laptop and can sometimes see a hotspit with SSID 'BT Wifi-X'. Can I connect to this from Windows? If I try I get a Network Authentication pop up askng for a username and password, tried my BT Wifi username/password without success.
The wifi hotspot appears to require authentication, unlike the SSID 'BT Wifi' which is open.
Can't find any mention of BT Wifi-X on the help pages eg
John the answer is NO.
The 'BT Wifi-X' SSID can only be connected to using a profile configured by the app after you have logged in via the app. Your regular username and password will not work for 'BT Wifi-X'. At present that SSID is only supported on the Apple IOS app, so only on Apple devices with the BT Wifi app installed & after users have setup the profile for autoconnecting to 'BT Wifi-X'.
On the BT Press Release on December 16, 2013 :-
"BT can also confirm the forthcoming launch of their first ever Windows 8.1 app delivering automatic wi-fi connection to desktop, laptop and tablet devices. When in range of a BT Wi-fi hotspot, users will see if they are connected as the live tiles on the home screen will change colour to reflect status. "
Does anyone know if one is able to access BTWiFi-X from Windows 7 or 8 yet please ?
If so, could you post some instructions please ?
OK, no replies as yet ? Does anyone on here know anything about BTWifi-X please ?
Obviously not ???. Very disappointing. I was out today and again attempted to connect to wifi-x via android app and its not happening. It attempts to default back to bt-fon but that connects and says there is an error.
Someone must know how we setup the profile settings in the android up.
This was made available for iphone/ipad and not android and 8 have not read anything since to say that it was being made available to android devices
