BT Infinity - Disconnection


[link to this post]
 
Hi guys,

Firstly I was having a look in the event log and see a lot of events that look like this:

Sorry for the crude editing, but you guys see what I'm talking about, right? We haven't had any internet problems and these strange entries only started today at around 15.00. Why does it seem that the different computers using the network are connecting at different speeds constantly?

OK, the second part of my query is - tonight at around 21.30, my computer lost it's wireless connection, as did my sister's computer. Both machines reconnected within a few seconds and worked OK. I had a look in the log for that time and saw this:

Now, I am no expert, but it looks to me as though someone else has logged onto my router..... Can anyone shed some light on this please? It seems to be something to do with the "Transaction for event code 6" thing.

Please remember that the times on my HH3 seem to be one hour out.

Picture 1:

Because Wi-Fi connectivity is rate-adaptive, so it will alter the transmission rate in order to get a stable signal between router and Wi-Fi device (air attenuates signals very quickly). So you'd expect different clients to have different connection speeds.

Unless the host-names are unknown on your network, then it should be fine.

Picture 2:

Not precisely sure what event code 6 is for the router, but it just looks like a reconnect to the cabinet. If you google the message, plenty of other users have it when there is instability/resynching. So that is probably it.

At a guess the URI is possibly to pull in config data.

Thanks for checking it out for me.

So, these things are normal enough and nothing to worry about?

Does Infinity still have that thing where your Home Hub intentionally connection provides a WAP for anyone around? I forget what they call it. BT Fon or Anywhere or something?

What wireless security have you got enabled anyway, and how complex a key?

On Residential there is BT Openzone and BT Fon, with Business there is just Openzone.

My neighbour and I both have Openzone enabled - it gives me access to any Openzone point at no cost when away from home. But given our location it is unlikely that anyone else could log on to our Openzone access points without being in my driveway espcially as it is well shielded and I cannot even see it when in te garden.
