I want to replace the poor Home Hub 3b with something better. According to SSIDer, the signal strength varies enormously and it drops the linked channel after a couple of minutes. The interface is rubbish too plus believe it or not, the HH3 is reported not to handle multiple wireless connections very well! You can say that again as wireless conncetions sometimes dont show as connected via the interface!
So, anyone using BT Infinity, can you suggest an alternative, reliable wireless router? Preferably dual band, delivering a minimum 300mbps wirelessly, at least one gigabit port.
Also, does anyone find having the router plugged into a surge protected extension lead to be detrimental to performance? I read an article from 2 years ago, the writer stating VDSL routers should be plugged direct into a wall socket not, an extension. Thoughts?
Overall, Im quite impressed with my Infinity 2 connection. Im now outside the so called 'training period' and a phone issue caused Infinity to disconnect. I reported the fault as I had done many, many times on adsl but ISP \ phone provider \ BT said there was no fault. Well, the engineer who called around 2 days later spent over 4 hours trying to find the fault before actually doing so! He said there was a fault on the phone side in the exchange.
Hopefully he's right. Anyway, as a consequence, I've been doing speed tests. This morning, my speed is 54Mb for a line rated to deliver a max 54.5Mb!
