I have the following with Infinity 2 :
Desktop PC connected via ethernet to HH5
All connect without any problems, no drop outs and really smooth connections.
Upon performing a speed test, I get the following :
Desktop Down : 74.94 mbs Up : 18.94 mbs Wonderful
iPhone Down : 74.56 mbs Up : 18.44 mbs Wonderful (standing by HH5)
iPad Down : 36.70 mbs Up : 17.94 mbs Acceptable (standing by HH5)
Now, you might think I am making a mountain out of a molehill and I should be grateful for small mercies, but would any of you technically proficient people be able to suggest any "adjustments" to at least increase the iPad wifi speed OR is this a feature with iPads?
Less than half the speed of the iPhone is puzzling, at least for me.
The apple forums are mostly US customers and no mention is made of BT's HH5 which is excellent.
Try turning Smart Setup off.
Also try separating the SSIDs.
Devices where there are known to be problems include:
Tried everything. Just a very slight improvement of 1 or 2 mbs.
I will continue searching for ideas but thanks for your suggestions.
Thanks, John. I checked that and it seems to have already connected to the 5GHz :
Still searching other forums.
The iPad is, as I mentioned in an earlier post, still performing acceptably. However, I am certain things would improve if I could up the download speed. You see, we use AirPlay to our Apple TV box a lot and sometimes it is not perfect. No such problems when doing the same Airplay with the iPhone but it is MY phone and I would rather my wife used her iPad!!
Try "forgetting" any/all connections from your iPad to your Homehub. Switch off and restart the iPad.
If you have given the 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz different SSids, remake the connection to only the 2.4GHz and run a speed test.
After that delete the connection again and re-start the iPad and this time conect to the 5GHz and re-run the speed test.
This will give you an indication of the speed achieved on both frequencies.
You can then decide to connect only to the fastest connection or to connect to both SSids.
