Now given up with BT Routers


[link to this post]
 
Now given up with BT Routers
Hub 1/2 passable
Hub3 with Infinity, more or less Ok but still flaky.
Hub 4, had 3 replacements , constant resets every 2 or 3 days.
The BT Hub 5, well what can I say that has already been said on many forums.
First Hub 5, resets every 5 to 8 Hrs, replaced. no improvement.
Now on number 5 ( the last one I will have ) still resetting 6 times a day.
I think BT by now must know the problems but can't or won't fix.
Now using a Asus router without any problems, cost me £100 though, but worth it for a stable connection.
Anyone that has a reliable Hub 5 should treasure it.

My hh2 seems not to like my AppleTv. I have a good idea it's the hh fault.
Every so often the atv just stops, the router just doesn't pass on the data. This is streamed data from my computer all over wired connections.
The reason I have a good idea is that my daughter had a hh3 in her house and was having the same trouble. She since switched to sky with a new router and hasn't experienced any problems at all.

So why did it take so long?

HH1 and 2 "passable" - will let you off with that!

HH3 "more or less Ok but still flaky" - hmmm!

HH4 "had 3 replacements , constant resets every 2 or 3 days" - trend building up here!

HH5 - must ask WHY!

I hope you didn't pay for any of these?

BT Infinity 2 - IP profile 77 / 20 - super fast!
Previously BE Unlimited - 21,000 Download 1,200 Upload but then moved house - 6,500 Down, 1Mb/s up - gutted!

Blind faith in BT I suppose.
Yes, I paid for the hub 5. My mistake!
Not met anyone that hasn't made a mistake "yet"
Not much chose form where I live. It's BT or Talktalk for infinity

TalkTalk doesn't sell Infinity. Infinity is a BT Retail product name for Openreach FTTC and FTTP using BT Wholesale.

TalkTalk sells the Openreach FTTC but not through BT Wholesale. Just like its ADSL2+ LLU.

Nearly every ISP in the country sells the same Openreach/BT Wholesale FTTC products. A few sell the FTTP.

So assuming you are on FTTC, you have over 100 ISPs to choose from.

My parents have a 2012 Extreme as their router connected to a Huawei HG612 modem. They're on BT Infinity as an ISP.

Feel your pain.

I'm on 76mb fiber, get full speed through ethernet but over wifi the HH5 is absolute garbage. I'm lucky to get 30Mb.

Every 5 days it reboots itself.

I'm looking at getting a HG612 and i'm tempted to use an old WNR2000 that was used on Virgin cable.
