Smart Hub 5 Firmware

Go to solution

How do know if your Hub has the latest firmware, is it automatically updated? I can't find an option to see if the Hub has the latest firmware or update.

Re: Smart Hub 5 Firmware

Go to solution

There used to be a page listing the firmware versions, but I can't find the link right now. These are the firmware versions I know of for the HH5A and HH5B

 

Home Hub 5A

Software version 4.7.5.1.83.8.57.1.3
Software version 4.7.5.1.83.8.173.1.6
Software version 4.7.5.1.83.8.204.1.11
Software version 4.7.5.1.83.8.222.1.1


Home Hub 5B
v0.07.01.0235-BT
v0.07.03.0814-BT
v0.07.05.0A13-BT
v0.07.06.09028-BT

 

It's largely irrelevant though as you have no option to manually change the firmware version or to request an update. BT will do this automatically.

 

Regards

Thanks for that, my version is 4.7.5.1.83.8.204.1.11 which was updated in August 2015. I thought in 1 1/2 years there would of been a update. Mine is the HH5A. Is the "Software version 4.7.5.1.83.8.222.1.1" the latest version then?

The 4.7.5.1.83.8.222.1.1 firmware is the latest I'm aware of, and going by the date mine was updated, was released in early 2016.

 

Whilst you can't initiate an update you may well see one in the near future as BT have stated they'll be enabling IPv6 on the Home Hub 5 in early 2017.

My hub's been stuck on 4.7.5.1.83.8.204.1.11 ever since I bought it (second-hand).  I don't have any problems with it, so i suspect your problems are elsewhere.

@john46: Excellent news, thanks! 🙂

My HH5B hasn't been updated yet, not since 29 Oct 2016, but after your info I'll be monitoring it closely. 🙂

@john46: Are you sure? That is my firmware revision already.

Pasting directly from the HH5B's Heldesk window:

    v0.07.06.09028-BT (Type B) Last updated 29/10/2016

 

And Advanced Settings->Broadband->IPv6 Status says:

 

    IPv6 will be disabled on your BT Home Hub and BT Broadband Network until supported by future services.

 

Also, Advanced Settings->Home Network->IPv6 Configuration says:

 

    IPv6 Configuration is not currently enabled as your BT Home Hub and/or BT Broadband Network are not enabled for IPv6.
