Changing the password on my BT Hub 5

  Border View 22:26 24 Jun 2017

I run with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit. I use a BT Hub 5. I've read that in addition to Virgin hub having a security risk older BT hub do too.

My question is - Is my BT hub 5 classed as old; does it pose a security risk to my system (I use an ethernet cable to connect to my main computer); and if I need to change the password, is it the Wireless password or the Admin Password for the Hub Manager which needs changing, if it does how do I do it.

Many thanks for reading this, I look forward to your response.

venerable = accorded a great deal of respect, especially because of age, wisdom, or character

perhaps Lorraine Baines-McFly meant vulnerable

Many thanks for responding everyone. Think I shall let sleeping dogs lay. In the meanwhile I'll look to see if there's a BT Forum to see if this question has been raised there.

Well, Deepthi from BT tells me I should change both my Wireless password and Admin password every two months. When I asked if this meant my HH5 was insecure he indicated "Not really, BT will make sure all the customers getting secured connections. However, in order to protect you from any unwanted activities that was my suggestion for you."

If I loose the new password HH5 and HH4 have a restore to default setting.
