Re: HOME HUB 3

diff firmware and hardware

type A made by sagem i think, and the B huawei

 

i would disagree with you john  (im  probably being a bit pendantic) and say there are differences in performance due to issues with the type A and some ive found in B

 

type A had wifi issues for me, and as reported in forums port issues etc

 

type B doesnt resolve name to ip on my lan for linux machines at least doesnt from my puppy linux laptop

Re: HOME HUB 3

what exactly is the answer u are looking for?

 

the questions was what are the differences

 

do u want the actual hardware specifc differences?

 

the answer i gave was

 

one is made by sagem one by hauwei

 

they have different firmware and hardware to achieve the same results, not necessarliy with the same success imo

 

u can read/search the forums for the issues people have/had with the type A

 

and for that matter any with type B, as i pointed out the name resolution one for me with puppy linux.

 

my wifi issue on type A of extremely low throughput of kbps from lan to lan was solved by replacing with type B

 

note, before updates on the hh3, type A wifi was fine, so imo someone borked the firmware

 

wifi to wan was fine but wifi to lan was really poor

 

u can read my experience here

 

http://community.bt.com/t5/BT-Infinity/BT-HOME-HUB-3-Type-A-v-Tpye-B-info/m-p/423355

 

most posts seem to feel the B is better, others have had no problems with the A, but there are lot complaining about the type A

 

im not sure id believe what tech india said, maybe someone who knows for sure can say wether there was a batch issue with the type B and if the type A is discontinued or not.

 

try the one u get and if it works for you then all is ok 🙂 if its an A and u have issues with it insist on another replacement type B or if they cant say u can def get a B then keep reporting  any type As as a fault and ask for replacement again and again till u get a B or BT sort it
