Here is the next phase of the attempt to fix my daily disconnects for the last year.
After much discussion with @StephG and her manager Mandy BT sent me a HH5 to try.
Here are the stats for my HH6 :-
connection speed seems consistent with attainable and has boost from lower noise margin.
are you using a new ethernet cable direct to device with no powerline adapter
does speedtest.net give similar results?
Hi @imjolly ,
Many thanks for your input.
If I am reading correctly the connection speed has dropped, not increased, but of no consequence.
It was a wireless connection.
With a wired connection using a friends laptop, not with new ethernet cable, download was 30.96Mbps and upload 5.6.
Will try speedtest.net in a while and post results.
so ethernet gives 30mb download but wireless is a lot slower
did you split the wireless networks? try different channels and/or different modes?
Hi @imjolly ,
Yes I did split the networks, has advised on here.
No I have not tried changing channels or modes, jus used the same as I have been using with previous hubs.
The results of the speedtest.net test was :-
So slightly higher than the BTW test but way way short ~40Mbps we are chasing.
When BT ring on Monday I will suggest moving forward with SH2, rather than the backward step to a HH5, that BT keep offering me, viz :-
As always, I would value your opinion please
it works as many people have posted cost a bit extra
you didn't say whether wifi or ethernet
