BT Dual-Band WiFi Extender 600 loses connection

Go to solution
Hello all, have one of these and have had this problem with both HHB 4 and HHB 5.

The Extender is plugged in left powered on and shows a connection range with a just right green light.

Each morning, I'll attempt some early morning browsing and I'll have no Internet. From my iPad I can:
- Access the Extender menu system which shows I'm connected to it.
- Access BThomehub.home which shows I can connect to it.

If I turn off the Extender I'll be connected to the Internet straight away once I'm in range of the Hub.
If I turn the Extender back on it will start working too, I'll be able to browse the web.

I have:
- looked for a firmware upgrade for the Extender and found nothing.
- set the HHB a 5 IPA lease DHCP lease time to 7 days - no change.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks
Richard

After much time exploring, creating separate SSIDs for each WiFi speed resolved the matter.

Hope this helps you.
