Re: HH6 SG4B1000B540

In reply to a post by ian72:
Worth pointing out in case anyone hasn't realised that you have a FTTP service which I seem to remember is running at 300Mb? That could see completely different results from using a router than those of us who have standard FTTC connections. The HH6 has worked flawlessly for me but my connection is around 50/14 so not going to be pushing the capabilities of the hardware/wifi.

Yup and soon to be 330:50 some time tomorrow, the Fritz!Box 4040 is suppose to be able to handle my connections speed according to AVM when I spoke to them, which it did fine, the issues with the BQM was the fact the FritzBox thought it was an ICMP Ping attack so it blocked it, so AVM says.

Don't get me wrong the Smart Hub was better than any ISP supplied router that we have been given.
So I cannot fault that, I think it was just pushing it hard on our connection that's all, along with all the issues I was having.

I had to on many occasions reboot the smart hub due to the GUI had become that sluggish to appoint it was in usable and when that happened our connection became bad.

The current Linksys Router is very responsive even when the connection is being hammered.

I always say to BT when they ask if I have the Smart Hub, I respond with "Yes I have, but I am not using it" their response is why, where I respond with "If Ryan Reynolds came to my home with his Tablet, he would get half way down my hallway and then though his dam Tablet yelling where is the Wi-Fi" which is when I hear a chuckle over the phone.

As for the boot up to connected state (i.e. router) the Fritz!Box wins, then the Linksys and the Smart Hub in last place.

I will keep the Smart Hub as a backup router in case the other two die.

Ok this firmware just dropped for me today.

Still not sure what it does.

I wish these companies would make proper patch/firmware notes, or any notes at all.

Never had a problem with my HH6 too, I am currently between US and UK and I leave the HH6 enabled with a VPN VMware server behind it, whenever I'm in the US I can VPN out to the UK line and catch up on UK TV or access my UK banking without raising suspicion.

Point is, it never lets me down and I don't have to worry about it ever crashing from abroad.

In reply to a post by MCM:
No problems here either with Wi-Fi or ipv6 although am having to use a third party DNS server for ip6 on attached devices as BT still doesn't seem to offer one. Or rather the SH6 reports "Not available".

The HH6 should respond to DNS queries via IPv6 or IPv4. It should respond with all IPv6 and IPv4 results no matter which you use to query it. What did you find was failing?
