Just upgraded my BTHH3 to a new BTHH4. All is well with the BTHH4 and there does seem to be an improvement in range/signal strength.
However, what I would like to do is have the BTHH4 downstairs and the BTHH3 upstairs (acting as a second access point).
Is this possible? If so, what do I need to do?
Can the BTHH3 link to the BTHH4 wirelessly or do they have to be linked via an ethernet cable?
Solved! Go to Solution.
im not too sure offhand of the various settings but definately they cannot connect to eachother wirelessly, you need to connect them by ethernet cable (cat5e or cat6)
Thank you for the replies/help so far. I ordered some PowerLine adapters over the weekend and I configured the BTHH3 to be a slave to the BTHH4 this morning. Once the PLAs arrive I will report back on how it goes.
For a little extra you could have ordered a pair of powerline adaptors with a wifi extender built in which would be a better solution.
Maplins have this on special offer but it is probably the same price elsewhere
My TP-Link AV500 PowerLine Adapters (TL-PA451KIT) arrived this morning. It was a huge box with a much smaller one inside! Just wanted to say that they work brilliantly. I now have BT Home Hub 4 downstairs which is connected via the adapters to a BT Home Hub 3 upstairs. These adapters are suitable for streaming HD video and use up to 85% less power - they seem to be well made and are literally "plug and play".
Bought the set from BT and got a third TP-Link Nano adapter free.
Just out of interest. If you fire up your browser and enter "bthomehub.home" as the URL what hub appears? Would this cause an issue? I am thinking of doing the same thing with a HH4 and an old HH2A...
Hi Keith--I'm trying to follow your link to "Link BT two home Hub 3s together" link but getting blocked even when logged into the forum. 30/9/13 at 15:06.
Are you accessing it from your BT Broadband connection?
A quick look at my logs suggest that you were using Obit Telecom (Daisy Communications)
