Hopefully it will solve the noise and the HR fault causing broadband to drop on calls
The Homehub has gone into another one of those cycles of almost constant reboots. The connection is virtually unusable and I am having to rely on connections via BT Fon and BT Wifi. Is the Homehub best left like this in the hope it might highlight a problem to BT, or would you think I should power it off it until the engineer's visit in case of permanent damage to the Homehub ?
Thanks John. There are some similarities there, although perhaps mainly in the frustration. Most of them seem to be referring to HH3. I use smart wireless on HH4, but also had the same problems when I tried my old HH3 today. None of them mention the line noise that I hear on my landline, but of course I don't know for sure that is related. I don't use my landline often, last night was possibly the first time in a week, and then again this morning. The crackle is new since last week, although I don't know for sure when it started. The disconnections/reboots problem is much worse since using the landline last night, but again that may or may not be coincidence.
Thanks John. I will try as you suggest and turn off smart wireless. Right now I am loathe to try anything as I have a stable and fast connection this morning. I don't even want to risk a landline call in case I trigger the cycle of constant reboots all over again !!
then try changing if your line becomes unstable otherwise just stick with it if working
