am thinnking about taking BT infinity. THis apparently needs HH3. Have seen threads about connection problems between HH3 and airport express. (I had similar problems with HH2, so resorted to old BT Voyager)
1. does anyone know if problems with HH3 and airport express can be fixed
2. Can I use BT infinity with a BT Voyager
Long time Mac user here.
Dump the BT HH3 and go for an Airport Extreme (or Time Capsule).
The performance is first class and the capabilities will give you a very good choice in your set-up. I get a good signal at the bottom of the garden about 75 feet away from the back of the house (the AE is at the front of the house another 30 feet away through several walls). The signal from the HH3 gave up just outside the back door!
thanks for the advice. An alternatve I've been considering is to use an ethernet plug adapter. I use this to connect BT vision box (adapter plugs into mains socket and has ethernet port.)
Do you know if I could use AE by plugging it directly intio the ethernet port?
Re: "If you get Infinity you will not need the HH3 in the first place you can just connect the Airport Express to the Openreach modem."
No use at all. I don't know what you use your Airport Express for, but mine is used to send music to our hi-fi, and so has to be connected to the hi-fi. Therefore it cannot also be connected to the modem.
This worked fine when I used to get my internet via (whisper quietly) Virgin. But with BT Infinity it would lose its connection every now and then. Apple provided a free replacement but that was no better. Following a few tips (e.g. connect to one's laptop via ethernet cable for setup) I was able to set up a connection eventually, but it still loses connection quite frequently. Interestingly enough, resetting the hub gets it going again, though restarting AE does not!
