For the past few days, my wifi keeps dropping. My laptop, phone etc. shows the wifi symbol but it doesn't work. It's really annoying having it drop every HOUR or so
Go into the home hub settings and turn off smart setup.

If it is only a wireless problem your location in the country will have nothing to do with it. The wireless signal is transmitted by the Homehub after the broadband signal enters your home.
Try a factory reset of the Homehub by pressing a pin into the recess button on the rear for about 20 seconds. This can often sort out problems.
