I've been having some problems lately when using my ASUS Modem/Router instead of the BT Home Hub 5. Before I continue, let me say I've been using this router for a couple of months with no problems until now.
I have Infinity 2 with the 78Mb download speed. My sync speed was always that, no problem at all However, I noticed my connection was slower than usual and checked the router. The sync speed went to to ~50Mb (for the download side) and the upload sync speed is still the same ~20Mb.
Also, I noticed something strange, which I hope you can help me with:
1) My ISP when using both the ASUS and the Home Hub 5 was always BT.
2) Now, suddenly, when I connect using the ASUS the ISP BT Public Internet Service
3) I tried connecting the Home Hub again and the ISP is back to being BT
I tried options 2 and 3 several times today with the same result.
I haven't changed anything at all on the ASUS router and, as I said before, it was working fine.
Do you have any advice?
Thank you very much!
did you ever find a solution to this issue i have just bought the same router and have the same result my connection has fdropped to 31mb down and 20 up and on the homehub 5 it was 78down and 20 up but homehub was always dropping ips for devices and was sick of resetting it 3 times a day and it says the same in my network connections bt public service
Firstly make sure you have the latest firmware & then post back the DSL settings you're using. Also the DSL log which will show your connection speeds etc.
I now have this router. Only way to get it working was by choosing BT Infinity 2 setting ( even though my account says I am on BT Infinity 1).
a) Max speed is 30mb, Homehub gives me 48-49mb - that's lan to pc.
b) Wireless speeds terrible after a few hours , drop to 0.5-3mb, on all devices.
Which settings pages do I need to upload here for some help please
PS It's on latest fw 188.8.131.52
