I work abroad, but going home to the UK for a couple of weeks this summer. Due to growing web needs of my family, I ordered BT Infinity 2, which will be installed whilst I'm in England. My family is not technically inclined, hence I want to ensure that things will go 'right first time', - during the 2-3 weeks that I'm at home... I'd like to ask for help/advise regarding some concerns :
(1) How important is it that the Homehub 3 be installed near the BT main socket? Is placing the HH 10 meters away going to have any adverse affect?
(2) Having read about HH issues, what alternative routers (good WiFi & 3-4 Ethernet ports) should I consider as replacement?
(3) What (particular) 'access point' product/s can I install in some weak spots in the house?
(4) Kindly advice about other issues (teething or otherwise) that I should be concerned, i.e. what to check/ensure with the Eng'r. during the installation, how to do a thourough test during the first weeks, etc.
Thank you so much for your help.
