Tri band WIFI 6E router to replace BT SH 2

Go to solution

Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced router that caters for the WIFI 6e standard?

As I no longer have a land line I can replace the SH2. I have FTTP 900 MBPS

From research I have done , I get the impression that that this tech is still in it's infancy.

For every router I consider someone has a horror story.

Thanks for your help

Hi Monir

It all depends on the device.

Using Analiti, I am seeing an internet download speed of around 450mbps, upload 103mbps using a Pixel 6 Pro next to the SH2.

Next to the Disc

250 mbps, 100mbps

And what is it you do with a Pixel6 that would benefit from greater speed?

Hi Liquorice

I am just using it as a tool to assess WIFI coverage at the moment.

One thing I am noticing is that the Pixel struggles to switch between WIFI sources as I move round the house unless it has no option. So the optimal connection is not always used, despite the hype from BT

I'm not sure if there is a way to check this but, on the hub manager or the analiti app, when you're connected to both the disc or hub, do you know if you're connected to 5ghz or 2.4ghz. I'm not sure if there's a way to know, also id like to know when you do a restart of the hub or disc do speeds change at all?

Hi Monir

The MY BT app tells you what band a device is connected on, and whether it is connected to SH2 or Disc.

I had just restarted my hub and the speeds are roughly the same

What link speed (PHY) do you see rather than download speed, to identify where the problem lies.

Hi Liquorice

Using Analiti the PHY speed from the SH2 is 866 (throughput 450 MBPS)

Having made sure that the phone is connecting via the Disc and testing again

PHY speed from the Disc is 866 (throughput 150 MBPS)

For that test with the disc, was the disc connected to the hub via Ethernet?
