Has anyone else seen recent problems with their SuperHub and WiFi connections?
I'm on the 200Mbps service with SuperHub 2 (I think: "Hardware Version 3.11"). There are a couple of devices connected via Ethernet and quite a few others using a combination of 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz WiFi. It's mostly been pretty reliable.
But over the last month I'm seeing lots more connection issues. Devices that were previously connected ask for passwords -- often WEP passwords rather than WPA, which is what they really are!
There have been no recent changes at home. Using iStumbler I can see that the channels I'm using are uncontested.
Has there been a recent firmware update? It's on V1.01.31. Anything else it could be?
Thanks for your reply. When I posted the original question, no, I was using the SuperHub in "router" mode (as I have for the last year or so).
Earlier this week -- after I had to restart the SH twice in one day -- I dug out my old Apple router and switched the SuperHub to "modem mode" and haven't had any problems since. (So clearly this was a problem with the hub rather than the internet connection itself.)
I'm not keen to be running two devices instead of one, but this is clearly better. Has there been a recent firmware update or something else that might have degraded the performance?
It's a long and confusing thread, but it does look very much like the same issue. As far as I can tell, it's the same hardware and, as you suggest, the parallel with it unilaterally switching to WEP security seems key. As with that thread, we have no problems with Ethernet devices and WiFi devices get a decent connection initially, but get kicked off and try (and fail) to re-authenticate a while later.
If the only solution is a replacement unit, I would be happy to accept one.
