Best channel for BT Infinity speeds?

Go to solution

Hello all,

 

So I have had infinity HH3 for some time now - the 80 Mbps package, and have been doing some testing recently on speedtest.net, and it doesn't seem to go above 45-50 Mbps. I have gone to the router webpage and the channel is on 'Automatic'.

 

Does anyone know which is the best channel to put it on, like the least interference one?

 

Thanks.

the best channel is specific to your home try down loading inssider and use the programme to find the best channel for you

install a program called inssider, this is a little program that will tell you what wifi channels are conjested and what are free, then choose the channel with the least other traffic on it, personally i would avoid using automatic as it could change you to a busy channel by mistake. speed tests shouyld always be done with a wired connection, not over wifi to get the most accurate results

As stated use inSSider to establish the best channel to use. See first link to it. Simply down load and install then run it. You will see your BTHomehub name and what channel it is on. Just look for a channel that is less congested and stronger then enter your hub settings and change it to that. See second link how to do that.

As well as helping you find the best channel, inSSIDer may help you site your router better. Sometimes quite small changes in position can make quite a big difference to wireless signals.
