Just received my BT TV Box. It’s not possible to run the ethernet cable to my router. I don’t really want to pay £90 for a mini connector. So my question is: Can I unplug my router from the hub so I can bring it closer to where my television set is and connect the router wirelessly to the hub? Or is there a connector I can buy to plug router and phone into same phone socket?
The mini connectors are available at a subsidised rate of £20, to BT TV customers. Just request them from BT.
You cannot use a wireless connection.
I use a Vonets VAP11N wireless bridge plugged inro my BT TV box which gives a wireless connection to my router. I've been using it for 3 months now without any issues to watch BT Sports channels.
When I first got the TV box I couldn't get the sports channels to activate for the first time with the Vonets. I used netplugs to get it started, then unplugged them and I've been using the Vonets ever since.
My router is in the hall and my TV is in the lounge. I can't guarantee this solution will work for everyone, but it works for me.
If you have Complete Wi-Fi (the black discs), you can connect an ethernet cable between the disc and the box
Obviously you can use the adapters that have been mentioned or if you do have a SmartHub 2 then wireless connectivity is possible so let use know what router you have.
You mention both a router & a hub so I'm a little confused by that, maybe you can clarify your setup.
