@JonathanAnsell Mine arrived as two shrink-wrapped boxes, taped together. Separately they'll fit through a 'normal' sized letterbox, together they won't. Luckily I was at home when the postman delivered.
How do they know the difference, a wireless SSID is a wireless SSID regardless of source.
Just for info.
If you wonder why alexa devices always connect to the home hub, it's because they don't support connections to access points
Hi @Oemoore64. One of my Alexa Shows is currently connected to the Disc on the ground floor. The other two located on the first floor are connected to the SH2 which is also on the first floor.
One thing not discussed on here - while there is a promise of WiFi in every room, what about the speed of connection?
I currently have 300 Mb/s Fibre, and it's not much use paying for that unless the WiFi will keep up. I don't see any guarantee that the WiFi will actually deliver a strong enough signal to give you the rated throughput of your Fibre connection.
I currently have a set up which essentially has an access point in each "main" room, to guarantee sufficient WiFi speed, but it's a real pain switching between APs as I move around (devices typically stay connected to the last one used unless the signal gets "too weak"). I'd love to have everything working with a single SSID like this does.
I have a large 4 storey house, with very thick walls. I challenge BT to provide me with a system with >= 300Mb/s Wifi in every room. If this new system can do that, I will gladly rave about how good it is.
Hi, apologies if this is already answered elsewhere.
Can users of this product use the BT Whole Home app (https://www.shop.bt.com/learnmore/bt-branded-products-and-services/bt-whole-home-wi-fi/) or are we stuck with the very limited My BT app? The Whole Home app has so much more functionality eg ability to control the kids' wifi use without having to turn it off for everyone at the hub.
Okay thanks. It would be good to see that functionality (working!) on this product - looks to be pretty standard for other mesh providers.
