BT Fon opt out


[link to this post]
 
Hi

i am opted out from Bt Fon but notice the other day my BT HH3 is SSID BT WIFI with Fon and BT WIFI

Both the displayed networks allow devices to connect and provide a connection

I have reset the router but the above still displays how do I disable BT Fon and stop it from broadcasting its ssid

Thanks

There is, of course, a silly answer smile.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet Extra Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 54.0/14.9Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

Stop using the HH3. That way, you don't have to opt out and you can still use BT Wifi when out and about.

Depends what you want - cheap or fast?
Is wireless a priority?
Do you want Gigabit ports?
Do you want a VPN endpoint?

There are many cable routers available, you just need one that can offer a PPPOE connection. But most importantly you want one that isn't vulnerable to the WPS hack.

Around the £130 mark (up to around £250) Wireless important and at least one gigbit port

Have a browse of the Fibre forum. The Fritz box seems favourite, but IIRC there are Drayteks and Billions.

He's after routers not modem/routers, I think. Like your Buffalo

Which the Draytek's are both.

The current favourite seems to be the Asus kit that Mr Saffron reviewed recently, RT-N66U which is a router only.

I am not so sure that he is, after all he is using a HH3 at the moment with no mention of the mode it is running, just that he wants BT Fon switched off. I own both the Billion 7800N and the Fritzbox 7930. The Fritzbox gives much information along with being overly expensive. I find the Billion much more reliable. Also the Fritzbox cannot be set to PPPoE.

The difference between genius and stupidity is; genius has its limits.
