I have a SH3 and a few months ago I reported in the trial forum that I was having awful 5G speeds but the speeds through 2.4G was normal.
The suggested and working fix was that to do a pin hole reset. The Virgin guy who suggested it never really had any reason for it but it was fixed and away he went.
So this weekend I have had really bad 5G speeds again. Ping of 100 - 300ms, Download 5Mbps and less and Upload around the same when I am on 200 MB. So I do a pin hole reset last night and still the same.
When using 2.4G and powerline/Ethernet connections I am getting good high speeds.
Any suggestions please? I'm going to call 150 when I get back home if it is still bad but thought I would check here first. Thanks
Don't know why they would say don't split the SSIDs, seems silly.

I was an original trialist of the SH3 and had split them from day 1 and then a couple of months down the line had my original speed issues so he asked me to rename it all back to how it was and done the pin reset.
Maybe they wanted to just get their product to as standard as it was when they shipped it to me as a trialist and it had worked ok again until just recently. Either way I'm seriously thinking about buying my own router and putting the SH3 into modem mode as the wireless just seems so flaky.
