OpenReach engineer came out (have no idea why as this seems to be a wireless issue). No faults found on the line.
I'm really not sure as it's occurring on 2 routers. I know the Sky Hub WiFi isn't bad as it's covering my house which is 3 floors and 6 bedrooms without an issue.
Ok here's my chain of thought. There's a small chance it's a line fault (very small) given what you've said. Can you post up line stats please after having the router on for 24 hours+ I want everything on the stats page, so WLAN, LAN, system uptime, attenuation, noise margin, Just copy the entire thing.
Now to the router. Go to 192.168.0.1 Username admin, password sky
Click wireless at the top
Channel 1, 6 or 11. If you are currently on 2, choose 11 (basically choose whichever is the furthest away from what you're currently using now).
Mode: Auto - this is important
Enable wireless access point ticked
Enable WPS ticked
Allow broadcast of network name SSID ticked
Under security options make sure WPA2-PSK(AES) is selected - important.
WEP, WPA-PSK and WPA/WPA2 mixed mode will all give sub-standard speeds (as it means your network wont operate at full N capabilities)
Do you have any games consoles / sky boxes / TVs using anything like this
Are all devices on the network wireless N supported or is it mixed?
In particular are any wireless B devices? On my network connecting a wireless B device causes the wireless network to slow to 1Mbps max, usually lower.
This device here http://www.harmonyfta.com/Vonets-wirelss-wifi-adapte...
aways ends up using wireless B and somehow slowed my network down to sub 0.5Mbps
I think you will find that 1 particular device is the cause of your issues.
Turn all WiFi devices off, turn them back on 1 by 1, with a 10 minute wait between each, running a speedtest each time, I say this 10 minutes because my WiFi ethernet adapter starts on wireless N, then 5 minutes in drops to G, then around 10 minutes of being on it suddenly drops to B and suddenly bam the networks ruined.
