Hi, We have recently had BT infinity installed with Home Hub 3.0. Prior to BT we were with SKY and with the wireless service I was receiving around 5mbps in my living room (next to room with home hub) and bedroom (above room with home hub). Having changed to BT infinity I notice that my speed in the same locations is the same or slower (averaging around 4.5mbps wirelessly. Having such a poor speed, I was suprised and so checked the wired speed with our desktop pc, which I was impressed to see was at 66mbps. Therefore I am wonderfing what I can do to improve the wireless signal because surely the router cant be that bad to be providing only the same wireless service as the SKY broadband we had before? I have looked at previous messages regarding similar problems and have tried changing the settings/channel etc for my router, none of which have had an impact on performance. Home plugs are an option though not ideal as they can be expensive and also it is easier and more practical to use wireless. Is there anything that you can suggest I do to improve the signal as I am currently very disappointed with the wireless service.
Also if it is worth mentioning, my laptop is fairly new and has 'n' capability.
The last point was worth mentioning.
I found I had better throughput by set the hub to the 40 Mhz option in the advanced settings, and security to 'WPA2 only'. If you post your settings (but not the security code) we may get a better idea of what to suggest.
Just made the changes you suggested and havent seen a change in results really. Settings are:
Channel type-Automatic (I have tried on other channels but made no difference)
Interface type- 802.11 b/g/n 40mhz
Actual data transfer speed- 11mbps
Slow speed is really annoying me as I was expecting so much from infinity....
On a seperate note to the slow wireless speed I have had issues connecting wirlessly with my PS3 and my Smart TV (wireless enabled) any idea on settings that can be changed to improve connectivity with these?
Ugh! Have you tried rebooting the hub and maybe the PC as well. 11Mbps is the b protocol which is why things are so slow.
