Replace SH1 with SH3?

Hi all,

The SH1 has been giving me poor wireless coverage to my bedroom about 5 metres away (through stairwell walls, placed on top of a book shelf near the ceiling). I've done a wireless channel scan of the area and placed the router on the least congested channel. It is also set to 2ghz mode which improved things but it is still really weak coverage.

So Virgin have sent me an SH3 claiming there is a better internal antenna design that can give better wireless coverage to that area of the house.

I don't online game, i watch some streaming such as iPlayer so i don't think the latency issues with the router are as big a concern for me as they are for other users.

But would you recommend to me that i switch to the SH3 or hang fire?

Regards,

MM

Re: Replace SH1 with SH3?

I would suggest you swap it as I'd say that the Hub 3.0 will give you better performance than the SH1.
