took the BT wall box apart and a wire was lose, fixed that and the router works fine, strange how the home hub worked ok but never mind issue sorted
TP-Link definitely arn't the best when it comes to wireless but their not _bad_ Ive seen some reviews where its the same as the HH5 or not worth the price.
the wireless range is better but still not good enough to cover my entire bungalow, The wireless appear to be working faster too but only been using it a day or so
Depending on where you bought the Router, TP-Link are running a summer promotion which involves giving away a free range extender, which might help the wi-fi to reach parts of the bungalow which other routers cannot reach.
thanks for the tip I have seen that and will be going for the offer, I already have a tp link repeater in the loft
