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
Hi all, I just started to use full fibre at my home today. This is a new house and there are wired network input sockets on the wall. There is no problem with wireless internet (the smart hub distributes IP addresses from DHCP pool to the wireless devices successfully) but when I try to connect my laptop using an ethernet cable into a wall ethernet socket I can see that there is no signal at all. I connected the smart hub to a wall socket on the wall. I was expecting the smart hub to work as a network hub or switch and assign an IP address to my laptop but it didn't. In order to test the cable and the device, I connected my laptop directly to the hub in a gigabit ethernet port, it connected successfully. There is no problem with the cable or laptop. There is no problem in the smart hub ( DHCP function is enabled already ) I guess the possible problems are as follows:
1. The smart hub does not work as a network switch and I need to get a switch for my purpose.
2. There is problem with the wired infrastructure of the house.
What do you suggest to me in this manner? Should I buy a network switch or check the wired infrastructure?
Thanks you in advance for your recommendations
Solved! Go to Solution.
Check your wiring, are you sure you are connecting the hub to the correct Ethernet port?
Do you have other Ethernet wall sockets you can use normally there is a panel of 4
It is not unknown for developers to provide the sockets but no wiring!!
