VPN on device using BT Home hub 6

Hi all,

So I was happily using my VPN on my tablet and work computer but since upgrading to the Home hub 6, it will not allow me to use a VPN on my device. I can connect to it but when I use it, it doesn’t lid anything. Trying it with my mobile connection, everything is fine.

Then just go back to using that, as the HH6 is not really any better, and has a number of disadvantages.

Re: VPN on device using BT Home hub 6

I use StrongVPN, good upload speed and ping, but hopeless download ( 0.1Mbps ) 😞

I switched off WebPreferences at http://preferences.webaddresshelp.bt.com/selfcare/preferences.cgi as suggested by some searching.

That didn't make a difference ( Ihave left it disabled though ).

However after turning off Extended UPnP security, I now have the same speed with VPN as without.
