I recently upgraded to Infinity and the engineer kept my 'old' Hub3 which was downstairs acting as a 'slave'. The new Hub4 is upstairs. He didn't take much time to explain the new set up (it worked fine previously using two Hub 3s) - but I'm now having problems as all devices seem to spend time searching for a signal between the two hubs - and some devices ask for a different password to access the 'slave' (even more confusingly this is the password from the back of the 'old' hub 3 upstairs which I no longer even have!). I think the previous engineer set it up so that the slave hub used the details from the original access point hub 3 upstairs - and now that that has been replaced with a new Hub4/Openreach Infinity modem, it's shifting between the two somehow. Help! I'm stumped - I've got limited technical knowledge and dont know how to figure this one out!!
I am not a techie a all ut I have managed to link my new 4 to an old 3 thus extending the wireless range using the advice on this link:
You seem to have done exactly what I'm thinking of - I looked at the link and the Jarvister solution - but as it was based on HHv1 and V2 I didn't proceed to link my new HH4 with my previous HH3 - did you follow the instructions without amendment and it worked?
Pardon me for barging in but I was interested in the BB.
I have my TV downstairs connected to my router (HUB4) using ethernet cable and PLA's.
Is there a way of connecting my TV to my HUB4 via wifi by connecting it to my old Voyager router, therby dispensing with the PLA's which get a bit warm and need turning on and off when required?
I know I could put a wireless dongle in the TV but the Voyager is going spare.
No, the Voyager modems cannot be configured as a wireless client. Also the Voyager modems get very hot as well.
You are better using the PLAs, as I think you will find wireless a bit unreliable.
