I have a super hub which was fine for a long time, but for the last few years the wifi seems to be getting worse, after 5 or 6 hours usage it can slow to a crawl, and sometimes become totally unresponsive, any wired devices are not affected. so I'm guessing its just a wifi problem, a router reboot always fixes the problem,
I have been promised a replacement twice , after bringing up the problems during my last two renewals, but ive given up trying to actually get a replacement as both times they weren't ordered and ringing customer services is useless as they just take the opportunity, to tell me the router is fine and I need more internet speed. ie upgrade
it used to be after a few days, so to combat this I plugged it into a timer, so would automatically get restarted every morning at 5am, but lately it has started becoming more regular.
what ive tried.
turned off 5ghz wifi (this fixed the problem for quite a while, although was a pain as 5ghz wifi is so much better)
factory reset loads of times
router gets rebooted every morning at 5am by a timer (solved the problem for a long time , but like I said, I'm starting to have to reboot through the day now as well)
just wondering if there is anything else I can try to get constantly usable wifi connection, I don't want to be having to reboot the router through the day like I am doing anymore
no, but I did look into it. and I'm willing to give it a go
the only reason I didn't bother is, I installed an app called Wifi Analyzer onto my phone to check if the router was using a good channel, as the router is currently set to automatic, I think its using channel 6 atm, the app suggested I was using the best channel anyway, given the channels routers and devices in my area where using
Sorry to hear about your wireless connection problems. We might need to try a few channels to find the one that performs best in your area. When you scan your area do you see lots of networks around you?

I used to use an old sky router as wireless access point, I only stopped using it due to trying to cut down on the amount of devices I had plugged in, anyway going to dig it out, when I get time over the weekend and use that again,
