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 have had fibre to the house fitted two wqeeks ago and with it came the BT Smart Hub 2. Since connecting I have been unable to acess via my PC either the router, my printer or my QNAP NAS.
However I have been able to connect to the router via my iPhone.
I have had a QNAP service engineer dial into my PC and he managed to get access to my NAS but not via my network or router even when I connected the NAS directly from the router to my PC via a cat6 ethernet cable. His conclusion was there was a problem with my network and that this could only be sorted by BT remotely accessing my router and making a change to it so that the NAS and my printer would be accessible.
Please can anyone help as I need to access my NAS as all my music (over1600 CD's) were burnrd onto iTunes which sits on the NAS as well as photo's and documents etc. It is also very frustrating I cannot print anything either.
Oh, whilst I run NORDVPN I have tried even turning this off and still no joy.
I had an Asus router before and had no such issues. However, I can't replace the BT router with that s the Asus will not accept the fibre connection.
Gave it go but unfortunately it doesn't make any difference.
The service guy from QNAP said the NAS has an IP address but my pc thinks it is on another network but they both have the same subnet.
Definately using the 254 IP address.
Strange thing though, whilst the BT router on my iPhone says the MAC address for the NAS ends in AE. The Qfinder Pro says the MAC address ends in AD.
What IP address does your PC have? It sounds as though either you have given it a static address in the wrong subnet or it isn't getting an address from the hub.
As your phone can access the router is there anything different in the network settings between them apart from the IP address?
Have you tried using a static IP address on your computer, say 192.168.1.10, with a gateway of 192.168.1.254 to see if that makes any difference?
I dont know what OS you are using but what does ipconfig/ all or it's equivalent give?
Can your phone ping your PC?
Can your PC ping your router and anything else on the network?
I assume you have tried swapping ethernet cables around?
