To OP @Abraxis , I only found out when I got to page 3 or 4 you had problems with the HH6. Might save everyone a lot of time if you updated your original post highlighting the problems you had with your HH6, and instead advise people to use another router. Thanks 🙂
The reason I haven't amended the original post is that it seems to work for some (either as a result of a further modification / change to steps or mostly with another router (HH5 or other). Changing the original post would make any subsequent posts referring back to the points invalid - so better to add updates as new posts like I have done.
I'm still using this solution - with Netgear Nighthawk routers and it works flawlessly - so I have to conclude the fault is with the HH6 which has probably now been recycled into clothes pegs - which, let's face it, are a lot more useful!
Resurrecting an old post, but I am now trying to set up a BT Hub 6 as a WAP. How long did you have to wait for the BT router to apply the settings? I am currently over an hour and it still states 'Saving Changes' . Any help or advice would be most welcome
Changes save immediately, if they aren't you have a faulty hub.
Thank you for the responses. I must have two faulty ones then as neither will save the changes to the IP address
Back to the HH5 it is then
Thank you for your very clear instructions on this tutorial; a great help! And thanks too, to @Jayebmx who's original post led me here!
Can you help me with one issue I have? Having followed the instructions in detail, all works fine. I am using the HH6 as a Range Extender and have my laptop plugged in to it to get fastest possible connection. My primary router is a Zyxxel.
The lights flash purple, as you describe, but then every 4-5 minutes I hear a 'click' sound from my HH6, the light turns to solid green, and my connection drops out. After 30-40 seconds, the lights start flashing purple again and my connection kicks back in.
Is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening?
