I would like to request that bt rework the firmware to enable the 6a to use lan4 as a wan port if a modem is connected to it. would be useful for a backup or even to let people use the 6a (assumeing they ever get the thing working properly) with g.fast as it has been reported that g.fast will be done with seperate modems at least in the begining.
I have an issue where the attached devices stops showing up so there is no way to port forward or link static IPs. You have to reset the router every time. A real pain in the backside. I am on firmware SG4B100021F4.
Can someone advise if I need to bin this hub 6 and go back to hub 5?
Yes, until BT either issue a software update to fix the problems or they decide the HH6 will never work as advertised and bring out a replacement.
My HH6 is gathering dust and I'm using a HH5.
I have received it just now:
11:16:18, 22 Oct. A device reset was performed (GUI/Button)
10:51:46, 22 Oct. The Modem successfully installed a firmware update
10:51:23, 22 Oct. The Modem is installing a firmware update
Interestingly it rebooted itself to install it.
First thing I've noticed is some character corruption in the TR69 logs:
11:21:00, 22 Oct. InformResponse:TR69 receiving x��݅�o���v��M� � message
Appears to be no other changes, so I suspect a bugfix release.
If I were you, cinek, I'd keep my fingers crossed that you can stay on the old firmware as long as possible!
My HH6 (now back in its box) was perfectly stable for 4 months on firmware 21EC but updated to firmware 2236 yesterday afternoon. It then kept rebooting (more than half a dozen times between then and this morning) and I couldn't solve that with a factory reset. The last straw was when all Wifi devices lost connectivity half an hour ago. At that point I decided I was wasting far too much time trying to get the HH6 to work sensibly and, there being no way to go back to the 21EC firmware, am now using my HH5 again.
Just been forced to get my hh5 out, my connection speed is just getting hammered as the hh6 just keeps resetting my connection ever 2 days.
Fastest and most reliable router, i doubt that bt. Might need to redo your advert imho as its all lies
