swap brightbox with smart hub

I have been with ee a while and have an ee Smart Hub supplied with my account. I have now moved in with my girlfriend who also is with ee but has a BrightBox 2. I'm trying to set up Wake On LAN through the internet but the BrightBox doesn't allow port forwarding of the packed to a x.x.x.255 address which i believe is required. The box also isn't great for WiFi signal in other rooms of the house.


Am I able to just swap the BrightBox with my Smart Hub or will I need to change any settings such as username?


Thanks in advance.

Yes, you can swap the SH for the BB & you'll only need to change your BB Username & password to hers.


The BB does have "Trigger by Traffic".
