Have you split the SSIDs for 2.4 and 5Ghz. If that does not solve it, you may have a faulty router.
What devices are having issues?
I'm quite certain it's a compatability issue as per the details in my post. In fact I've proved it's a compatability issue by using USB wifi dongles in place of built in wifi chipsets. I've tried changing to the favoured 1, 6, 11 channels (2.4Ghz) and found channel 6 to be marginally better for throughput, but it was so close it could of be a red herring.
I find it highly unlikely that the router is faulty as per a similar discussion we had on another thread. After working for years as a qualified engineer on domestic electronics of varying standards ie upmarket HiFi to Beta/VHS to tv it's quite apparent what sort of faults/errors/odd behavior are attributed by.
So often I see on electronic/computer retail websites product comments where someone has returned an electronic device a number of times "because they were all faulty" - when in reality probably non of them were and is something we used to call "Finger Trouble" in the trade. Hard drives are usually favourite for that sort of scenario and where there are genuine failures so many are returned in perfect working order.
On a non-important cosmetic observation:- I noticed the PlusNet hub is a bit odd in as much as it looks as though the Panel under the Horizontal light is removable? To add weight to this mine had a protective cellophane type covering on it to be removed. Perhaps there is something there on the BT Home Hub such as a USB socket on the front underneath it, or perhaps it is removeable on the Plusnet router. I've not investigated anymore than looking at it.but t seems a bit odd to put cellophane just on that piece of rectangled plastic.
Anyway, quite happy to stick with the Plusnet router to ensure the line is OK and its stable and then depending if I go down the wired route soon will determine if i replace the router. Ideally I would like something that is generally better in all regards.
