I transferred to Infinity on Monday 30th January; process was fine. Within half an hour of using my desktop I suffered a physical headache; something which I do not normally experience. The BT Helpdesk suggested that I move the hub 10 feet away from me. After this move the headache ceased.
Unfortunately ever since I have a permanent feeling of what I call a muzzy head, a sort of dullness across the back of my head. Every time I leave the house I feel fine and the muzzy feeling returns when I enter the house again. After further calls BT say that there is nothing further that can be done.
Am I the only person experiencing this problem? Are there any suggestions anyone can make to improve matters?
Wow, that doesn't sound like much fun 😞
Have you experienced this with other wireless routers or is it just the hub?
You could try switching down to b/g mode - Settings -> Advanced Settings -> Wireless interface type: -> 802.11 b/g .. this will reduce the speed of your wifi by disabling the faster N mode which uses an additional frequency (5 GHz vs b/g which are 2.4 GHz IIRC). Perhaps your are particularly sensitive to that band? (total speculation)
Otherwise all I can think to recommend is to switch away from using wireless - at home I use a set of Devolo 200Mbps powerline LAN plugs (http://tinyurl.com/6th8qly) that streams the broadband through the power sockets. They cope very well with the speeds provided by Infinity.
These days I very rarely use wireless at all, but of course your mileage may vary (smart phones or tablets, for example, don't quite fit into this picture). Depending on the location of your master socket, this might let you move your hub further away from you, if not disable WiFi entirely.
My neighbour is very susceptible to any kind of wireless interference and claimed that setting his channel to 9 caused him to have fits (not BT though)!
Wireless frequences can and do cause lots of problems.
One obvious one is a pace maker that some heart patients use,others include any radio controlled device like toys or models,and our brianwaves which are of an electrical nature and operate at radio and other levels can also be effected.
For instance if you had a model aircraft on 26Mhz and a friend tried flying his plane on the same frequency you would be both controlling both planes.BANG!.
So I quess that it is possible for some of us to be effected by radio signals.
