a bt technician just set up my hub so I can connect to 2.5 of 5 mhz but to do this I have to type in my username (easy) and my password which "is printed on the back of the hub" or so the tech guy said.
I typed them both in but they were not accepted?????
You need to be clearer, are you trying to login to your hub for admin purposes or trying to connect to your Wi-Fi ?
I suspect it's the latter in which case it's the SSID and encryption key you need to enter (which are also on the back of the hub)
sorry, my vague summary was typed after 3 hours of trying to get BT support
you are correct that I'm trying to connect to my wifi
on the back of my hub there is the ssid number then the wireless key and finally the admin password for hub manager
I tried the first two but they were rejected
Many thanks for any info
Your device should just 'see' a list of SSIDs, select the hub SSID and press connect. You should then be asked to enter the passkey. You shouldn't have to enter the SSID anywhere.
I have always seen an icon of my hub on a list of local hubs (my neighbours) I click on my hub icon. auto complete the password and connect. I have to do this fairly often when I'm warned that I am no longer connected to the internet.
Yesterday the BT tech guy adjusted my hub settings remotely and told me I had not been given access to the 5 mhz band (ever) so he set up a 2nd icon on the list of hubs so I could click on it for access to the 5 GHz band or switch to the 2.5 GHz if using a pc that was far from the hub
I have been unable to enter the username and code so I'm stuck on 2.5 GHz
Your hub will be 5GHz capable but I'm referring to your PC or laptop or whatever device you're using. Are you saying you let someone claiming to be a BT tech support guy access your PC or whatever remotely?
Ok that clears that up.
So the BT tech guy identified that the 5GHz carrier on your hub was disabled and enabled it, the point is that the device (phone, tablet, laptop etc) that you're trying to use still needs to be 5GHz capable in order to find the 5GHz SSID
