Set up your Wi-Fi Hub 3

We want you to get online quickly, so here’s your simple guide to setting up your Wi-Fi Hub. If you have an engineer coming they’ll take care of the set-up for you. If you’re setting up yourself, follow this step-by-step guide to get your full fibre service up and running.

Connect your Wi-Fi Hub 3

The way you set up your Wi-Fi Hub depends on which Fibre Connection Box you have. This small box is where the fibre comes into your home. It plugs into your Wi-Fi Hub to connect your full fibre. It may already be installed and fixed to a wall somewhere in your property, or if you have an engineer coming they’ll install this for you.

Choose your Fibre Connection Box from the options below to find out how to set everything up.

Additional support

If you’ve added Digital Voice to your package, getting set up is a doddle. Just unplug your existing telephone cable from the master socket and connect it to the green port on the back of your Wi-Fi Hub. Digital Voice will go live at the same time as your new full fibre service. If you're using a microfilter, this doesn’t need to be connected to the Wi-Fi Hub when connecting your phone.
