Oh well, thanks for trying, at least.
I guess buying a long Cat5e RJ11 cable it is.

Just tried an old tablet I had kicking around, and it connects and works fine. It's a different make, and running an older version of Android (4, whereas the Huawei I'm trying to use is running 5), so I guess the problem must lie either with the hardware or with something in the settings of Android 5.

As I mentioned before, I had similar DNS issues with my main PC initially, and they were resolved by disabling IPv6 in the network settings, so I have a feeling the issue with this tablet may well have to do with IPv6 somehow, too.
How to fix it, though, is another issue, as I cannot alter the IPv6 settings of the tablet, and cannot disable it in the BT Hub.

Excellent point. That does seem to be what you have isolated to.

Just out of interest, the date/time for the tablet is correct?
