We have put together a short survey to capture your feedback in terms of what BT can do when you experience home Wi-Fi issues. We would appreciate it if you could take a couple of minutes to complete a short survey. Read more from here, Fix my home Wi-Fi
I moved my disc from the living room into the hallway as I have a fish tank and they can't be near water or electrics in the tank. It's now on the floor above the hub ( I have a town house), so it's really a matter of finding where the best area to put it.
Haha thanks Moe70, yep I understand how to turn them on, I was asking more about how they actually connect to one another.
So do they individially link to the hub, or in effect is it like an electrical circuit that they loop from one to the other.
If it's the latter i'm wondering then if it matters where i place the discs to optimise the "loop", if it's the former then it's not something that matters.
Hi @Castrol they work as wireless mesh network so the discs and hub connect together to provide the strongest signal. When setting them up on the app it should offer you advice of where they are best placed around your home to optimise the coverage.
@murphyabu as you have found out it will work without the complete wifi subscription however it isn't covered by the complete wifi guarantee and you can't use the complete wifi features in the MyBT app.
I hope I have set the questions out for quick Yes or No answers so as not to test your patience.
There seem to be conflicting answers to some of these questions on this forum!
I have FTTP and use ethernet cable from Openreach box to Smart Hub2.
Fine. It works!!
Pair it using ethernet to SmartHub then disconnect and move Disc1 to somewhere within line of sight because of thick stone walls.
Is a “good”signal OK Yes - or should we aim for “excellent” No. Yes/No
If the first Disc is only “Good” does that then degrade the signal as you go on to 2nd, 3rd and 4th Discs. Yes/No
Previously used Apple Extreme router that was ethernet chained with 3 Apple Express’s.
These don’t work with the Smart Hub, sadly, so the Discs daisy chain by signal.
But I’ll have to ethernet 2 Discs 3 & 4 because there is no line of sight through thick stone wall.
How, then, can I then connect a TV, or non-wireless Printer to the Disc that is connected by ethernet cable
At present one TV uses a BT plug - but then why did I buy this Mesh sytem if I’ve got to use these plugs as well!!??
I had an original smarthub that I had to kick back to a HH5 to get my Devolo powerlien adapter working.
they keep having issues with my new SmartHub 2 - tried to run them from the hub and also from a disc - but keep getting drop outs.
I have a Youview box - and with wifi it needs to powerlien adapter to run.
Any thoughts on what works best as it is very frustrating
Sorry, I'm just a normal user, but I'm sure the BT Administrator will reply to your request.
