Home Hub 3, 802.11b/g/n Not Working Well With Streaming Media

Hi, the iPhone 4S keeps disconnecting from the HH3 when normal web browsing or streaming media on an iPhone 4S, using apps YouTube and Twitch.TV. Other symptoms is the WiFi icon flashing off and on very quickly. 

 

This happens on 802.11n and I changed to 802.11b/g which seems to solve this. Now that Home Hub 5 is out, it looks like we are 2 versions behind?

 

Software version 4.7.5.1.83.8.94.1.11 (Type A)

 

Last Update: 18/07/13

Operating System: Ubuntu.

Have you tried using a different wireless channel?

By using channel 5 you are overlapping with two other channels that are used by wireless routers so you could be actually making things worse. Channel 12 is better but still overlaps with 1 channel. You should look for the least congested channel on either 1,6 or 11 which are the only channels that do not overlap with other routers.

Hi, I used Kismet, this is the list of channels highlighted in red. Channel hopping is enabled, I think it shows more information then it needs to?
