I used to have no trouble downloading via Sky On Demand using the wireless box back to a Home Hub 2.
Virtually every time we try & download via On Demand it fails after a while resulting in my other wireless items (tablet) losing connection. My main PC is wired.
When i go in the Sky settings it reads:
Connection to Broadband Router OK
Connection to On Demand FAIL
Running a cable from router to Skybox is not an option although i do have one of those powerline extenders for use with my Smart TV.
Why does this happen?
Did wonder if there is not a fix to use the powerline extender used for my Smart TV to connect to Skybox instead as we rarely use Smart TV functions.
Just desperate to be able to use On Demand again 🙂
Solved! Go to Solution.
If the two are next to each other, then simply add a cheap Ethernet switch at the end of the powerine adapter link, as shown in this example here.
You will have four ports you can use, so you connect the TV and the Sky box, and still have two spare ports.
Wireless interference could cause connection problems. There are actually 13 wireless channels to choose from, once the hub is set to manual channel selection.
