Internet speed great with ping latency being improved with the hh4 BUT the new 2.4ghz is causing issues when connecting to it. Slow loading, disconnections etc 5 band works great n had no issues at all. The hh3 works on a lower frequency n wirelessly is spot on. Im gutted that my original issue was fixed with the hh4 but I cannot use my s3 iphone etc without major issues
Just add.. the 2.4ghz range is extremely poor. Tech support will not help at this point however I am in contact with a supervisor at exeter who is concerned about this n is looking into it... This post isnt to flame the hh4, it did rectify my original issue n 5 band works a dream but the older wireless technology s3 iphone is not running as it should on the 2.4
A replacement hh4 has been mentioned but the guy at tech is now on his hols and ill have to wait until next week. Tech support this morning actually said that 2.4ghz has a shorter range n I should sit closer to the hub lol
I can switch the 2.4 lower but cant change the 5.. But imo defeats the object of the hh4..
Until the tech support comes back from holiday you can always still use the homehub4 if it sorts out your original issue and here's how:
Set home hub 4 to 5ghz only mode On home hub 3 change its IP address to 192.168.1.175 (works well for me) and then disable its dhcp server. Plug home hub 3 into home hub 4 and then use hub 3 for 2.4ghz and hub4 to control the connection and routing and 5ghz band.
As an option you can set both homehubs to same SSID and password and devices will just pick the strongest signal.
