Would any kind soul please read my levels to see if I have a problem?
Reason I ask is because I am constantly having wifi drop outs and speed issues. Wired is no problem. I have checked my neighbours wifi channels and moved to manual mode to avoid conflicts which helps a little.
But the router just loves setting itself to channel 1 even when in manual mode. I change it to another channel and i often come back to see that it's moved to channel 1 again by itself.
I often have to reset the router and I often get many of the lights appearing after the router has decided to reset itself.
As it is a wifi only issue, then on a Hub3, you can try separating the SSID's of the 2.4 and 5 GHz wifi bands by renaming them in the settings and at the same time switch off "channel optimisation" apply and save the settings. All wifi devices will need reconnecting to the best SSID at each location. Also use a wifi scanning App to find the best wifi channels to use (just select and use channels 1,6,11 on 2.4GHz) - this often helps Hub3 users get better wifi performance - but as legacy1 has said - its still no substitute for getting better kit 🙂
To address the wifi, VM now supply “wifi Pods” (not “boosters”). Pods are free to “some customers” but most will be charged £5/month and right now they dont have enough supplies to provide them - unless you have a demonstrable wifi issue.
And at that level of investment you would soon pay off that cost by buying a "better" wireless solution that will be yours to own and use forever and which will cure all your wifi problems.
