Hello everyone! Just a quick question,when i have plugged bt router in my power outlet, why i cant see channel with FON name when i do scan wifi with my phone? Where can i enable this option? does it enables in router settings?
Thank you very much for your help.
only when you have hub connected to BT broadband will you see BTWIFI/FON in the available networks
The BTwifi signal uses a separate network on your hub which connects via your broadband. If there is no BT broadband line connected to your hub then there would be no internet connection for anybody connecting so the Hub is clever enough to stop transmitting the BTwifi signal when it is not receiving a broadband signal.
As far as i heard,Fon software embeeded into routers to provide separate channel, how this is related to landline? I do not understand.
If your own broadband was working there would be no need for you to connect to BTWifi-Fon. Instead you would connect to your own Smarthub.
If your broadband is not working yet you won't be able to connect to the BTWifi-Fon coming from your Smarthub. If you have a neighbour nearby and they have BT Broadband they will also be transmitting BTWifi-Fon and you should be able to connect to their signal or "hotspot"
