Its BT Infinity day for us today. Internet goes off 9.15 am. Get new box out of the packaging which came in the post last week, connect the network, switch BT Hub 5 on. A bit of light flashing, blue light appears looks like we are in business.
On the sheet of paper it says "set up your first device using smart setup"
Just open your web browser, it only takes a few minutes.
So I'm sitting there head scratching, why hasn't the smart set up appeared?
No internet to ask why without driving around looking for a wifi hotspot for Lisa's mobile.
So I get Lisa to ring BT, I've already turned computer on and off, turned off my adblocker, even tried Internet Explorer instead of Chrome.
I suddenly realise we have Internet as I'm talking to BT lady, profuse apologies follow..................
What it should say on leaflet is that you should just connect box to your network and everything should work without messing around putting passwords and username stuff in.
Its that smart it doesn't even tell you its working..............
Only thing we had to alter was Lisa's iphone setting password for wireless.
My o2 phone didn't need anything altering ( edit I write pants)
Do our computers go any faster? I would say yes. Might even go faster when I put adblocker back on.
I know someone who cancelled their Infinity because the individual couldn't see and difference. Problem being vastly out of date computer and using computer for such stuff as emails etc.
Infinity being a video thing really and multiple internet activity.
I increasingly watch YouTube and will be buying Chromecast to watch stuff on the main telly with Lisa.
