Default BT Home Hub 4

When connecting a new PC to a BT Home Hub 4 the router wants you to
install parental control software.

Is there any way to bypass this? The user is trying to work with a
laptop set up by her employer, so she doesn't have admin permissions to
change any of the settings or install software. It assumes it will
achieve an internet connection directly from the router, rather than the
router's built-in nanny software.

Any ideas, please?

Clearly I could change the router ...

Yes, just don't download anything. When it asks, so No Thanks.

The HH4 is a complete PITA. Every new host which attempts to connect to the WWW via the HH4 has its web traffic hijacked
by the HH4. It's not necessary to setup anything on the client but it's still a pain, non the less.

There is an option in the Advanced Settings which disables this.

I would suggest she refers the problem to her employer's IT department
since it is clearly their responsibility.

Thanks. That will save me digging around blindly.
