hh3 dropping wifi


[link to this post]
 
got problems with my hh3. It keeps dropping wifi on my laptop, everything was fine on my old router (dsl speedtouch). I got a asus rt-n66u however I didn't get the same speeds on my pc as with the hh3. So I'm back to the hh3. I was thinking of sticking with the hh3 and get a AP to sort out the wifi issues. I can't find a single AP with decent reviews. Which AP would you guys recommend that would have decent reliable signal? only need it on 2.4GHz but don't mind 5Ghz either.

Is it an HH3A or HH3B?
Some people find it helps to fix the channel rather than using the HomeHub auto channel selection.
Have you checked that you have the latest wireless drivers for the laptop?

You can disable DHCP on the Asus, give it a fixed IP address on the Home Hub's subnet, outside the range that allocates, connect the two by ethernet and use the Asus wireless. In other words turn it into a WAP plus ethernet switch.

Turn off the HH wireless if you wish. The usual thing is to get the two routers well separated, to give wider coverage, as most would do with a WAP.

it's HH3A. I have selected a static channel and all drivers on the laptop are up to date.

thanks. £100 for an AP is a bit too much tbh also just found out my hh3 has all lan ports (except the gigabit) limited to 10mb/s ;/

Get it replaced. (Have you tried a factory reset?)

Yup, done that yesterday but it didn't help frown do I need to call the helpline (and go through all the troubleshooting steps) or can ask for replacement via mybt?

No idea, but maybe the wireless on the replacement will be better as well.
