Thought the HH3 Type Bs were a Speedtouch/Technicolor TG 587nv3 variant. I believe there were two variants of the HH2 Type A (3 if you count the speedtouch board revision) as well as the Sagem-based type Bs.
Looks like I need to gets some info from the HH3.
Just replaced the drives in my NAS and backed up my Photos - it took nearly 7 days!
I was away on business and when I got back it was still going - had a look and could see the network running at 10M.
So searched for any issues - having read this thread, I do note the lack of Mod feedback in the latter pages. Is this one too hard to fix?
I also noted the post stating that the HH3 is no good as essentially a network switch by design - Having seen the ads from BT on it being the best, I recently signed up again to get the new hub (I was using the old hub and a mini 4 port switch) and need all 4 ports form my PC, Net top box, NAS and Devolo Network to TV, further Net top and PS3.
Have I wasted my money and should have gone to Sky with a netgear box?
Sky routers and their firmware have their own issues so I'd say no.
I would never really choose an ISP based purely on the router supplied to be honest. I paid for the HH3 myself so I'd expect it to work properly and if it says it has 100Mbps ports I'd expect them to stay at that speed. Apart from this its not a bad router much better than the previous hub's. I expect I get a year's warranty so I hope they get this resolved soon
I recently experienced this problem as well and a re-boot of my HH3 does solve the problem although only temporarily. My son's PC connects by powerline adapters and he doesn't have this problem. I'm relieved to find out it's not my PC but disappointed that it's the HH3. Incidentally, the reset switch on my HH3 doesn't work so I have to disconnect the power to re-boot.
Reading the posts on this, a 5 port gig switch seems to be a solution I could live with until a more permanent one is found. I got a bit confused though as to how this works. Do you just plug this into the GigE (port 4) and then attach your devices to that in the same way as you would with a normal ethernet switch?

I am sorry that this problem is still ongoing.
We are still looking into this and haven't got an update for you quite yet. We haven't forgotten about you and will let you know as soon has we have something more.
I have just noticed that one of my ports has failed to 10Mbit, couldn't understand why file transfers that yesterday (between 2 NAS) were in the region of 4MB/sec and today was struggling along at between 300-400KB/sec.
Swapped over the ethernet cable (I use all 4 ports) to a different 10/100 port and bingo back to 100Mbit and transfer back to circa 4MB/sec. I have 2 ports running at 10/100 1 at 1000 and 1 at 10
This is my second HH3 and I'm not amused, and I don't see the point in yet another swap if I end up with the same problem on another HH
