Is there a way I can force my Hub 3 to enable the WPS function like doing a firmware update etc....?


I've no idea if BT actually manage the hub3's on a Plusnet connection.

 

If WPS is not showing as an option, disconnecting the hub from the modem, then resetting the hub will restore it. This should then allow WPS to be used, but not long after reconnecting it to the modem, WPS will vanish (until the latest firmware is pushed to it, again don't know about Plusnet).

Home Hub 4 only uses WPS push-button, and not the insecure WPS PIN.

They are not vulnerable. Neither device support WPS PIN authentication.
