BT Infinity Homehub


[link to this post]
 
So what is this black magic that allows for intelligent scanning of your home and overcomes thick Walls and other forms of interference thus ensuring a brilliant strong wireless signal?

Or is it just snake oil and it offers nothing beyond any other 802.11n wireless router.

Currently an O2 wireless box II struggles to provide a download speed of 1.1mbps when 'at the router' offers 11.5 Mbps

11.5Mbps (Mega bits per second) very poor if sat next to the router, I was testing G kit at 15Mbps some six years ago

The Hub - automatic channel hoping to avoid congestion from other networks, multiple antenna's and an N signal.

So if in in a foil backed plasterboard room, probably little difference in range.

Do you mean it shows the link as 11.5Mbps (mega bits p/s) and you get 1.1 MegaBytes p/s actual download?

Looks like you could find out fairly cheaply for yourself. It does seem to have sorted the dropping wireless issues I was having between my sons laptop and the old HH2.

The magic is really simple. Use a cable. If you are like me you have too many neighbours with wireless access points and other things that also interfere with wifi. The simple answer is run a cable.

Or change the polarization of the antenna's can also help greatly smile
Try to picture that horizontal waves don't interfere so much with vertical waves when offset by 90 degrees smile

Tried it, but got a crick in my neck. Also the laptop kept falling over and using the keyboard was extremely difficult.
