Re: HH manager does not show connected iphone

I think the answer is that the hub 6 is indeed as flakey as many say, in fact all BT hubs always have been, although my old hub 3 with openreach modem was pretty reliable, and I keep it as my fallback.  My hub recently started dropping its nternet connection, another fairly common occurrence with these, I believe. It reported a fault on the line and although I knew that if I turned it off and on again it would reconnect for a while, I followed up the instruction to report the fault. After. Aline test

After a line test a fault was apparently found and subsequently fixed. Remains to be seen if it makes any difference, but hub still drops internal connections.

Re: HH manager does not show connected iphone

I haven't had too much trouble with it, as a router. I haven't had to reset it at all. I have one PC on powerline networking, and the power adapters need switching on and off every couple of weeks, but I don't think it's the router to blame - who can tell though. OK it's wifi reach is no good, but probably as good as any other - 2.4ghz is just a uselessly high frequency for getting through walls. The basic operation of the thing (allocating ip's, routing packets etc.) depends on the chips and the firmware - presumably designed and programmed by proper engineers who are generally skilled and it seems to do its stuff for me. On the other hand the web-based interface is put together by the usual shower of application programmers - don't know what they are doing and don't care.

Re: HH manager does not show connected iphone

We are straying off topic, but I also have that problem with the power line adspters, which did not happen with the hub 3, so I suspect the HH occasionally forgets it is there.
