Everyone will get different mileage from the hub. In my house the Q hub has a comparable range to the D-Link access point I use, apart from one room which has foil backed plasterboard lining the walls.
The skyQ hub looks good, but it has a flaw. It renews the IP address & when it does the Internet connection fails and resets. Pervious hubs were ok and did not do that.
Normal DHCP which has been around for decades, renews the IP, about halfway through the lease time. What it sounds like you're experiencing is when the renewal fails and the router is allocated a different IP address, which breaks connectivity. That's can't be a problem in the Q hub but may be a problem with the DHCP server.
yes they do, but the SkyQ router kills the link during some of their DHCP renewals. It is far more noticeable on the SkyQ router
If connectivity fails during DHCP renew then its a bug, whomever makes the router for Sky have an issue. Netgear seem to do a lot of OEM including Virgin Media and I've read of similar issues on VM hubs.
