Default Re: Torch 9860 and BT Openzone

I've tried on several different hubs. I can connect to my own hub from the secure side but not to its open BTOpenworld side.

Hope someone can help. TIA
Since it seems like your able to connect to WiFi, it doesn't seem to be a hardware related issue.

I would contact your carrier and ensure that all the setup options are correct. There may be an IP/DNS/WINS/DHCP address that may be off.
