Is it possible to stop broadcasting BTopenzone

Go to solution

Hi everyone so i got one of these old school hubs

And im broadcasting Btopenzone is there anyway to disable this.

 

I had 30 people connect to me about a week ago all from Iphones shows up when i log into my Hub

 

the ips all started with 10.???.???.??? (Thought that was for only Fon those ips too Man Surprised

 

I thought open zone was for like business places cafes and what not.

 

I dont have any of these nor am i a business user.

 

So if anyone got a little tips be very grateful.

Hi ksmiles and welcome

 

A BT Business hub used on a residential connection will only transmit BTOpenzone (now called BTWifi).

 

Residential hubs will transmit BTOpenzone and BTFon (BTWifi and BTWifi-with-fon).

 

To remove this you need to opt out of BTWifi and your hub should receive an update in around 48 hours.

 

Opt out using this - http://bt.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/12958/c/346,1238,2694

 

Note: You won't be able to connect to other BTWifi zones for free after opting out.
