I am using BT Fon, and the home hub is set to channel 1 and the WA701ND is set to channel 11 so will just leave it at that. Should I delete the home hub from all my wireless devices so they never connect to it to take the wireless "load" off the home hub or won't it make any difference. Cheers
If nothing connects to the home hub, then you can just leave it as it is.
If you have used a different wireless key on the WA701ND, then there is no chance of that happening accidentally.
Hi, connection just dropped again the broadband light flashed oragnge for about 30 seconds then came back on. Here are the stats.

I looked in the event log and it says this.

There are also a few of these in the log

Are these normal?
And does this mean every time the connection drops does the 3 days start again?
No, it does not. Its probably a burst of noise on the line, or someone has disturbed the connection in the exchange.
Mine does the same, usually a couple of times a month.
Your noise margin is very low at the moment, so that will make it more prone to disconnects.
You had a burst of error seconds, which was probably the cause of the line drop.
Could be some electrical interference, thermostat or similar, it does happen.
