You will have to use a DDNS service that is supported by the BT home hub. No-IP is one such service. You can assign a host name which will always point to your public IP address.

You create an  account with them, and then enter the details into your home hub.

See this thread https://community.bt.com/t5/Home-setup-Wi-Fi-network/DDNS-and-Smart-Hub6-cant-get-it-to-work/td-p/18...

Hi @Gibson781

My understanding is that unless you are paying big money for a Static IP address you will have to set up your router to use a Dynamic DNS service. On your smart hub see Home -> Advanced settings -> Broadband -> Dynamic DNS. Of course I could be completely wrong (for which I apologise) as I have never had the need to use it.
