BT Smart Hub 2 - Limited channels

Go to solution

The user interface for BT Smart Hub 2 only offers limited channels. Those channels are in use by my neighbours, so I want to select other channel numbers for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz.

Why can't I select other channels?

Is there a hack / workaround ? Is there another way to configure?

Unfortunately you can't

Because BT think they know best and restrict the channels to non-overlapping channels despite many complaints.

The only workaround is to buy a third party router.

No work around. You can only use the channels shown just  use a wifi analyser and then select a channel where your selection will be far stronger than your surrounding neighbours. Alternatively you can purchase a third party router/modem with more choices
