Re: Home Hub 5 keeps rebooting itself

The Asus DSL N66U should stop the disconnects.

Re: Home Hub 5 keeps rebooting itself

Yes i have looked and its £124 at PC World, I had the N55U for my Broadband (BT) and had no issue's, so will give it a few days and see what happens (If I have more then 10 disconnects between now and Wednesday) then will get DSL-N66U, just dont understand why firmware updates /  OpenRG / CWMP are such a issue with BT HomeHub 5.

 

Never had these issues with my BT Voyager 2091 only if that would work with Infinity!!!!

You could always grab a cheap modem at auction and use your N55U

Re: Home Hub 5 keeps rebooting itself

Yeah was thinking that but would rather have a 1 box solution (only one looking good is DSL-N66U) due to power sockets free, also not sure what to get and how to set up as the N55U needs some adjusting to work with Fibre...

Re: Home Hub 5 keeps rebooting itself

Yeah I came across that too, might just see what my disconnect rate is come Wednesday and buy the DSL-N66U, or unless a magical new update appears (1.7 or 2.0) to solve all our issues and bring peace to the HH5 world...

Re: Home Hub 5 keeps rebooting itself

So far, so good. It looks like the combination of the white modem and the HH5 has put pay to the OpenRG reboots. Not ideal I know, but at the moment I'd rather lose a mains socket and a little speed for a stable service.

Get a grip BT, sort this out.

Re: Home Hub 5 keeps rebooting itself

Hope to find fix from this thread other then buy new router.

I seen post from pepole say buy a new router I don't have £50 or £100 spear pound to spend on a router.

I still getting drops no connection alway seem when I watching a video send an email  or on Xbox never seen to happing when I'm not using it.


Don't see why I should pay for a router I'm paying enought.

 

Is there going to be a Home Hub 6 soon could I get one?

 

Thanks

Re: Home Hub 5 keeps rebooting itself

I'm on my second HH5 in the first 4 months of being in Infinity.

 

My first HH was more than likely damaged by a power outage/disruption in Jan 15. BT tested it and confirmed that it was damaged.

 

My replacement HH has only been in use for 2 weeks and it's already playing up. Two reboots that I noticed last night and then no reboots for about 18 hours. Now it reboots as regular as clockwork every 2 hours, at 3 minutes past the hour. This has occured 5 times now. It'll go off, reboot and then immediateley reboot again. Then all is fine until 2 hours later.

 

BT, in conversation tonight, say that the HH5 is working fine and there's no problem at their end. Thanks for stating the bleeding obvious. They suggested that I swap the ethernet cable around and use the opposite ends. Plus changing which port it's connected to on the back of the HH5. In the next phonecall, 2 hours later, it was suggested that it might be the wall socket that is powering the HH5!!!!!!!!!! I was asked to change which wall socket it was connected to. I did this and two hours later, another double reboot. Another change of socket, and you guessed it, 2 hours later another double reboot. I'll be running an extension from the neighbours house before long.

 

Why can't BT just admit that the HH5 is a POS, instead of dicking everyone about.
