Re: TP-LINK N600 TD-W9980

The youview box was working two weeks ago , although buffering constantly. We bought the TPLINK which was brilliant except we couldn't get on demand briadband TV, the box found the router etc but no channels available . So switched back to Hh5, reset the youview box and attempted to connect, nothing. Now the HH5 isn't sending data through the extender plugs.
So, my question is what did you do to get your TPLINK working with your YOUVIEW box.
It wouldn't surprise me if our box had become faulty too, so far five HH 5's !

See reply in your other thread, but have to agree with David, it sounds more like a you view box problem

Re: TP-LINK N600 TD-W9980

Or the extender plugs not connecting properly, which is more likely. Running a temporary Ethernet cable is the only way to prove it.

If the router is changed, then you would have to reset the extenders to default, and set them up again, as the IP subnet is most likely going to be different, so they will not pass data.

Yes, missed the mention of extenders.

Yes, I cannot imagine all those HH5s being faulty. Swapping between the HH5 and the TP Link, and then back again, would upset them.

 

I wonder which extenders are being used? If they are the BT ones, then this post explains how to reset them if they are not passing data.

Re: TP-LINK N600 TD-W9980

Thanks, strange thing after 48 hours of no data, suddenly data again. Think the plugs are faulty, again.

Re: TP-LINK N600 TD-W9980

Back again!


I have always had a 500mtr Cu line to the Cab' so when the HH5 stats gave me 40Mb max data rate and 40Mb data rate (att' 29) I was confused.
I would do a speed test and the data rate was confirmed at 40Mb.
Wait a minute, what is the HH5 doing. Does distance & quality (Cu) not affect anything.
I don't know about electronics at all, but in hydraulic terms I would expect a pressure drop at the HH5 with predictable consequences.
In my opinion I have suffered those consequences.

Upon installing the N600 it gave me a max rate of 40Mb & 35Mb user rate. This in my opinion is about right.

The N600 has sat there for 35 days now without me having to do anything.

Thanks Licquorice
