SmartHub


[link to this post]
 
So unsurprisingly the SmartHub is junk.

The interface is a slow and lacking simple things such as Reboot, seems they spent more time on ugly icons than actually testing stuff.

Dynamic DNS updating doesnt work (At least with NoIP) ...(Seems it might actually work)

let alone the over charging for Post n Packing....

2nd Class tracked is not £6.95 even for retail customers.

Going back to HH5 and returning the SimpleHub.

(edit to update info re NoIp)

There is an option that says "Restart the Smart Hub" on the main interface page for rebooting the hub

I feel I'm the only one that's not having any problem

Interface is snappy.

Have you separated the WiFi bands?

Yep, DynDNS didn't work for me either...

Also seemed that Dynamic DNS was causing the hub to reboot and crash... though not confirmed.

Also, wasn't postage cost like £7.95/£8

Mine was sent my 24 Hour Tracked... not sure why yous came via 2nd class...

Either way them charging a little extra over the retail postage is fine... someones got to package and post it haven't they...

It's fast for me. It HAS got an option to restart the hub. NOiP also works fine for me.

Seems you got a dodgy box!!

Just installed my new "Smarthub".
It seems it's not so smart.
Download speed before on my HH5 was 58.08Mbps.
Now on my new Smarthub it's 54.59Mbps
Gutted. I'll give it a few days to see if it recovers otherwise it's going on eBay.
