Amazon Firestick

Hi, recently I had the new smart hub 2 and disc and since I set them up i've had no end of trouble with the wifi on the firestick. The hub is connected by ethernet to my PC in downstairs office, and i put the disc in the living room next to the TV. Every 30 minutes or so i get a notification on the TV from the firestick to say there is no wifi connection, when i check the network on fs it is really weak and say's i should connect to channel 4 on the 2.4ghz frequency which doesn't seem to be an option on the sh2 only 1, 6, 11 or smart. I can even get a much stronger signal on my neighbours sky wifi!!! 

I hope this makes sense to someone and there are some solutions as it's driving me nuts!!!

Thanks in advance Richard

Re: Amazon Firestick

Probably not a good idea to have the disc so close to the TV, it's quite possible that the TV is generating RF noise which is interfering with the backhaul to the hub.
