Home Hub 4 wifi id names


[link to this post]
 
I have a HH4

When I use Wifi Analyzer on it I see three devices on its channel: set to channel 11 as there on only two very weak signals from neighbours there.

My question is the devices named. They are:-

My SSID
BT Wifi X
BT Internet FON

I understand my SSID and Bt Internet FON but what is BT Wifi X?

I note that on another channel, one of my neighbour's also has a Bt device with the same three devices shows; although very weak of course.

I believe it's an encrypted version of BT Wi-fi which tablet and smartphone apps can connect to.

Thank you

I am finding that I cannot use BTWifi-X at home because my SSID takes over. I wonder whether that is by design?

It's a WPA2-Enterprise connection with 802.1X, often used by apps which use a certificate for authentication.

If you don't have an app to connect to it, you can use the BT-Fon connection with your BT-id and password for authentication instead.

Yes it is by design. If you look at the settings in the BT Wifi app you'll see an option which is enabling this behaviour.
