Is it possible to update the firmware for BT Broadband Extender 500 powerline adapters, if so how do I do this. I'm often troubled with my connection dropping out randomly.
I don't rate these adapters very much... OK they have improved my connection speed no end over wireless but the fact my broadband connection drops out randomly several times every day does rather annoy me.
Are you sure that it is the Extender that is dropping the connection. It could be a) your connection to the house or b) your Homehub that is dropping the connection.
Does the broadband drop out on wired devices?
Does the broadband drop out on devices that are not connected to the Extenders.
If I switch off the electricity supply to the extender my pc is connected to for a few seconds and then switch the power back on all is OK. I often have to do this several times some days, some days I have no problem, it's a random thing.
