Re: Wireless keeps dropping out even with a brand new home hub !!

"""you can get cheap ethernet hubs which will provide the additional ports. Lots on EBay"""

 

Oh ! I didnt know that !! Can you show me what exactly I need  please ?

And as they are used for gaming mainly.... would the power (bandwidth) be reduced from the hub ?

Re: Wireless keeps dropping out even with a brand new home hub !!

Like this - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Netgear-Fast-Ethernet-Hub-FE104-/160531798160?pt=UK_Computing_NetworkingHubs_R...

Just search Ebay UK for "Ethernet Hub"

 

More info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethernet_hub

 

The LAN bandwidth won't be reduced - you won't even notice.

Re: Wireless keeps dropping out even with a brand new home hub !!

My wireless is still dropping several times a day ! We have tried every channel and moved the home hub so different locations !

How can I get my hands on the new HH 3 without spending 3 hours on the phone to India ? Any Ideas ?

Re: Wireless keeps dropping out even with a brand new home hub !!

you can't as there is another post which says that they will not be available until the end of January

 

can you not borrow another router just to check that it is the hub that is causing the wireless dropouts?

Re: Wireless keeps dropping out even with a brand new home hub !!

I had the same problem until I changed the Wireless Interface Type to 802.11/b/g, a bit of a drag if you have "N" adapters but resetting the Hub every day was doing my head in. ;-).   I had tried 2 Infinity Hubs as well, maybe "N" is more susceptible to interference as it goes further, (just guessing in an uninformed way).

 

Good Luck

Well we never had problems with our HH until just a couple of weeks ago.  Its very odd.

Thats what I meant... about getting the HH3 at the end of the month.  Not NOW lol

Re: Wireless keeps dropping out even with a brand new home hub !!

just noticed that you are on infinity but the HH3 referred to was a router/modem for adsl so I don't know if there is a new router for infinity.  As you have only had the infinity router for couple of months you could always try and get a new one claiming that your one is faulty

We just got our 2nd one on Monday and it has the same issues !!

On another thread... I had read that BT updated their firmware ! I wonder if mine needs a new firmware ! But it looks although you cant do it yourself and you have to get BT to do it directly which means another 1 hour call to India GRRRR
