improving wi-fi signal


[link to this post]
 
I'm currently using a Hub 5 for my connection but frequently have to reboot it.

Is it worth upgrading to a BT Smart Hub>

Try splitting the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz into different named channels and then teach devices about just the one you want to you.

Another option is turn off the Wi-Fi totally and add a dual band access point so question is are the reboots needed as Hub 5 crashes due to wireless or other issues.

The basic answer to the question you ask is that upgrading to smart hub may not be the answer to your problem. Until you fix the difficulty don't buy a smart hub. If you can fix the problem you may not need a smart hub

Can you give some more details of the problem?

List your connections from master socket via router to computers, laptops etc, stating which are wired and which wireless. What else is connected to the master socket in the way of voice phones, sky box etc etc. Wired? wireless?

How many disconnects, regular times of day?

Why do you have to reboot, sounds faulty to me?
