Hi All I just want to know if the problem people report on here with the HH3 wireless connection is if there running more than one wireless connection or Laptops ? as i only run the one wireless Laptop in my house ,and i,m not into gaming etc so don,t need extra set ups , i don,t really want to spend money on a new router 🙂 any advice please thanks 🙂
Hi Jamjar, I think we've had this discussion before. For me the HH3 works fine on both wired and wireless. It does help if you use fixed IP addresses for your computers. You might find (for reasons I don't understand) that even with wireless N in your laptop you only get a 65mbps wireless connection - and this will not be enough to give 40mbps throughput on the internet. If that is the case, it might be cheaper and more effective to look at using an external wireless adapter on the laptop rather than replacing the HH3 by something you buy. I use a netgear WNA3100 adapter on my laptop, and my wireless connection is almost always over 100mbps, often up to 130 and even 144 - and the internet throughput is nearly as fast as on my wired computers upstairs (35 to 38 on wireless, 37 to 39.5 on wired).
I used the HH3 with no issues at all - setup was all wireless in a bog standard semideteched house
HH3 in hallway served:
the only reason i moved to time capsule was for dual band and built in backups. But the HH3 was fine - still got it for any emergency . Just work out exactly what you need a router to do.
You can always change later on if your needs grow (there's a very liquid market in routers)
