Ok, so I've been forced into using my HH3 again in order to get the IPTV channels working, as my Linksys E3200 that I had replaced it with doesn't handle IGMP apparently.
However, since the switch, I've noticed by broadband speeds going up and down like a yo-yo (rock solid with the Linksys). IN the course of trying to discover whether this was a known HH3 problem, I discover that the firmware on my HH3 appears to be rather out of date:
Current firmware: V100R001C01B031SP12_L_B
Last updated: 31/07/12
According to the BT support site, the latest version is as follows:
BT Home Hub 3 - Software version 126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.11 (Type A) or V100R001C01B036SP03 (Type B)
So my question is, will a firmware upgrade solve the wildly fluctuating speeds, and if so, how do I 'force' an update?
Don't know if it will resolve your speed issue but you can't force an update. You have to leave your router on 24/7 and it should do the update itself. This usually happens overnight. It is meant to happen fairly quickly but there is a recent post where the poster has had it switched on for 6 months and it still has not updated.
