I upgraded to the Smarthub in Jan part of my renewal and my speed/signal was superb constant around 50mb.
now two weeks ago the hub failed, stopped working, engineer visited tested everything confirmed 50mb line speed but hub faulty. so replacement hub arrived, setup and configured settings as per previous hub i.e. smart setup = off and split bands to 2.4ghz and 5ghz. now the speeds never got over 30mb more often than not dropping to 10mb download. so called again and ANOTHER hub sent and tried the same and this hub was lower more than not.
Engineer came again yesterday, he checked everything replaced master socket etc and reset the hub which should have removed the "cap" on my speeds.
Last night I played around with settings on hub to improve speed as was getting around 8mb download.
I now get 50mb on the 5ghz band which is great but only 20mb on the 2.4ghz band?!?!?!
Can anyone help as I am getting nowhere with the engineers or the numerous call centre people I have talked to.................
Should I not split the bands?
Thanks for the reply Webby.
I understand the line doesnt have a fault as both engineers confirmed the speed at master socket which I accept, and also once BT had removed the cap on speed when the hub had been playing up.
The thing i cant get my head round is why i'm only picking up speeds of 20mb for 2.4ghz band instead of 50mb constant before.
Obviously 2.4ghz is congested but that much to drain 30mb from my available speed?
Appreciate the help.
