WPS no longer gets disabled by BT

Go to solution
If I ever had to reset my homehub 3 (type A) I remember that wps became available for a short while until BT disabled it again. However since it upgraded to the latest firmware, wps no longer gets disabled by BT. Does this mean that the security issue with wps has been fixed in the latest firmware?

Thanks

Hi JohnAP and welcome

 

I've noticed this too (and mentioned it on the forums, somewhere). I have manually turned mine off.

 

I don't know but according to BT it shouldn't be active (yet). This page confirms that it should be off - http://bt.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/32232/~/how-do-i-create-a-wireless-connection-to-my-b...

 

In case there is an error with the latest firmware, I'll flag this post for some clarification;)

Thanks for the welcome. It would be good if a mod could clarify this.

You should run Reaver and see if it's vulnerable.

Hi All,

That's odd! I have asked the question, I will update you as soon as I get an answer.

Cheers,

Hi Guys

 

Sorry for the delay un updating you.

 

We recently started to switch on the WPS functionality on our Hub 3’s.  It is being rolled out over the next few months so some hubs have had this enabled already but it will take a while to have this rolled out across all hub 3.0s. 

 

Rest assured that we would not be doing this if there were any security concerns in switching on WPS.

 

Cheers

Thanks for that Sean:)

 

So the page I linked above will be changed to include this (unknown to a customer till now) info?

I am with PLUSNET and I have my Hub 3 connect to my fibre service. Will this still be unlocked to get WPS again? My hub is a type B

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