Accessing wrong homehub.

Go to solution

Trying to access my Homehub5 with the usual 192.168.1.254 login (which I've used before several times), but I'm now getting my next door neighbour's Homehub6 instead.

 

Any ideas what on earth is happening here?

you need to be connected to your home network to access the hub

Do you have powerline adaptors? It could be that they also have powerline adaptors and your signals are crossing.

You must be connected to their wireless network instead, have you ever connected to it in the past, and saved the details?

If so, then delete their wireless settings from your computer.

Yes. That's a possibility. Though I'm connecting to the hub wirelessly from this laptop.

No, I'm not. They have a secure network, as have I, and no, I've never been connected to their network.

Then login to the home hub and select the restart option, see if your home hub restarts. You would have needed their admin password to restart theirs.

Can you check your wireless connection on your laptop to see the name of the wireless network it says you are connected to.

That was the first thing I did. However, your previous suggestion re. powerline adapters seems to have been correct. I've unplugged the two that I use for my BT Tv box and the problem has resolved.

 

I now have to sort out the powerline adapter problem or rethink my BT TV/Sport subscription. Aaaaargh!
