Your hub plugs into your master socket, which is a small white box, usually located near the front door.
On activation day unplug your old hub and power cable. You can re-use any microfilter and Ethernet cables.
Use your master socket rather than an extension socket, because the broadband signal will be stronger and more stable.
Insert the grey broadband cable into the ‘Broadband’ socket on your hub. Make sure it is fully pushed in - you'll hear a click.
Connect the other end of the broadband cable to your master socket.
If your master socket has two sockets, plug it into the left one.
If your master socket has one socket you’ll need to use the microfilter supplied with your hub. Plug the broadband cable into the port marked ‘Modem’ and the phone cable into the port marked ‘Phone.’
Slide the two parts of the hub’s plug together until they click into place.
Connect the cable to the hub’s Power port and plug it into the wall. Turn the plug on.
Press the Power button to turn the hub on. The lights on the front will turn blue when it is ready, which could take at least three minutes.
If the lights don’t turn blue, use our hub light guide. Remember your broadband can go live up to midnight.
Your network name and password are on the back of your hub, your network will be called something like BT-XXYYXX.
On your device search for your network and enter your password exactly as it is shown. Wait a few moments for it to connect.
Trouble connecting? Turn your device off and on again. Your broadband can be activated any time up to midnight, so you may need to try later.
Make sure you keep your hub on all the time. If you turn it off, we might think there is something wrong with the line.
Your broadband speeds may fluctuate for up to 10 days while we perform tests on the line to ensure you get the best possible speeds and connection.
Connect your phone, laptop or console to your wi-fi network.
