we cant put the hub near tvs,radios,speakers microwaves,fridges,freezers,and now radiators ,i could tell them where it could go but i would get banned .............really though where the hell do they expect us to put them ,the toilet or will the wind affect them ? time bt supplied us with new gear ................
AnthonyUK you have simply demonstrate your arrogance and attitude. I was infact looking for a solution to a customer's BT HH3 speed problems when I came across the thread and the previous thread by Disillusione.
By the way BT Support have said the same to my customer that the issue is known and they are now looking at it.
However, in light of the hostility will keep away from the BT community. On Tech Republic you would have had a 30 day ban by now but you are obviously allowed to troll unchecked here.
if your customer would care to post there problems here i think we could fix them for free rather than your extortionate hourly rate
There are probably rules regarding creating multiple accounts as well 😉
Thanks for the detailed feedback Richarobi.
They are both set to b/g/n, and wpa & wpa2 (i.e. identical)
Could you try it with just WPA2 to see if there is any difference?
What model is your Netgear switch?
Do you see anything out of the ordinary on the HH3 network setting page regarding port speed or duplex?
As the HH2 has no gigabit do you get the same speed if the gigabit swich is connected to a 100mb port on the HH3?
It could be an incompatability with your switch and the gigabit chipset in the HH3.
There is no major downside to this apart from the loss of one ethernet port as everything downstream such as WAN, wifi devices and other ethernet devices will all be the same speed or slower anyway.
I appreciate that the wifi may appear to be faster with connection speeds of 150mb but I have not been able to go above 8-9mb/s in my tests.
Sounds like a port auto-negotiate issue to me.
Try hard-setting the port on the switch.
