All seemed fine until he got in touch with me this morning that he have been having problems with his Iphone and EE Wi-fi calling.
So I went up there this afternoon to have a look, his Wi-fi calling kept cutting out , even if he moved into the next room, whihc is no good for him at all.
He said that his old AOL D-link router worked fine, with it, so my idea was to make the homehub 5 a modem only, and connect the D-link as a router. but found out there is no way to disable the DHCP on the Home hub.
We was about to go out and buy another router/modem and then I thought that maybe it is the 5Ghz band that is the problem, so I unlinked the SSIDs and changed the 5ghz by adding a couple of numbers to the end. and I got his phone to connect to the 2.4 side only and it worked, he was even able to go outside and across the road with no problem at all. As a test I got him to connect to the 5Mhz band and do the same test and it failed again.
I thought this 5Mhz band was better than 2.4mhz, but it seems like it is not.
I had the same sort of problem with my next door neighbours HH5 which is why they went back to the hh3.
Any ideas why there is a problem?
