I'm struggling to deactivate BT Fon on my Hub-6.
I can't log in to the wifi page http://www.btwifi.co.uk/ that is linked to from the settings page of the hub itself
I have disabled it in the My Extras part of MyBT webpage and it shows as Inactive there. but on my Hub managment pages BTWifi is still showing as Active and the Hub is still clearly broadcasting a FON signal
Solved! Go to Solution.
if you have opted out of BTWIFI then it can take up to 28 days for it to show in your hub stats
If you go back into My Extras and Active the BT Wifi and wait couple of hours and then go back into My Extras and Opt Out of BT Wifi. It should take no more than 48 hours until your hub shows Not Active. I’ve done this many times and it always worked within 48 hours.
Ok - tried that it hasn't worked.
reactivated it in MyBT - waited 6 hrs then de-activated it again. it's now more than 3 days later and BT Fon AP is still broadcasting from my hub (yes it is my hub its not coming from a neighbour)
It’s been 28 days now and BT Fon SSID is quite merrilybroadcasting away from my smart hub despite me supposedly deactivating it.
This is a bit silly.
I am also surprised that BT Fon keeps broadcasting even when I disable the ‘proper’ WiFi SSID on 2.4 and 5 ghz. I am surprised there’s no proper local way of disabling the radios.
