Re: Slow wireless connection - BT Home Hub 3

Go to solution

Well, if you read through the forum you will find that wireless problems are very common. WiFi works on an unlicenced frequency band which is shared by many different devices, so is subject to all sorts of interference.

 

It fine for web browsing or e-mail, but not usually for streaming media, unless you have a good signal, and every device is wireless "n" capable.

Wireless link ok but no internet access

Go to solution

I have a BT Home Hub 3 physically connected to a PC which has full internet access. When I connect to the hub  via wireless it is saying that there is no Internet access available.

 

What am I not doing?

Wireless

Go to solution

After my previous query regarding wireless card not picking up HH2, a question.

 

I had Infinity installed on monday and very pleased I am too. But, the same wireless card that wouldn't pick up HH2 wouldn't pick up HH3. It would pick up a Netgear, Talk-Talk, Virgin and Btfon but, not the hub that was about 15' away. My tecky took it back and it connected to about 6 hubs but, again no Bt hubs, but only a BTfon.

 

My question is this. I assume that the frequency of the hubs are all governed by set specs, so how come the BT hubs seem to have a frequency outside of the card specs in my clunker? My tecky says it's 'bizarre!' and a friend who knows an awful lot about TV and wireless is completely baffled.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Glyn.

have you tried checking the manufacturers website for an updated driver for you network card.

 

if you card is not 'n' rated have you tried changing the hub from default b/g/n to just b/g?

See Wireless Help

 

The most likely cause is that your wireless card cannot cope with WPA/WPA2.
