Hub 3.0 and TP Link - worked but then jammed signal

Hi,

I connected TP Link WA850RE to Hub 3.0. It was all working fine for a few weeks - the WiFi blackspot was getting a good signal.

However, after a few weeks the TP link started to interfere with the general WiFi in the entire house - it was jamming the Hub 3.0 WiFi - so we weren’t even getting WiFi sitting up close to the Hub. The only way to resolve was to switch off the TP Link.

Would appreciate any advice on how to get this resolved. Thanks.

Resolve what issue?

The extender is probably sending a stronger signal than the hub.

Also it’s only a wireless N extender so no 5Ghz. Not great in the scheme of things.

Get a £50 wireless router with 1Gb ports and use the hub in modem mode.

Thanks for replies. 

Which wireless router do you recommend for £50? Where would I place it? I can’t move the Hub 3.0. What’s the best option to get WiFi in black spots the other side of the house?

As for recommendations, only you know the ...

Budget, £50.00

Environment,

Workload the device will have to support.

Have a read of online PC and Networking mags to get an idea.

None for £50. You’ll need to spend at least double that.

Re: Hub 3.0 and TP Link - worked but then jammed signal

Would the new wireless router sit next to current Hub 3.0, or be placed in black spot room?

As you can probably guess, I’m clueless about networking/WiFi. I’d be grateful if you could point me to any relevant articles, resources to get a better understanding on best networking solution.

Re: Hub 3.0 and TP Link - worked but then jammed signal

The Router would need to be connected to the Hub using a Cat 6 ethernet cable.

The Hub would need to be in Modem Mode.

The Router would need to be positioned as centrally as possible in the home.

If you do go ahead, get back to us for the best way to set the Router and Hub up.

Re: Hub 3.0 and TP Link - worked but then jammed signal

If the new WiFi router costs more than £50 I’m guessing it’s more economical to contact Virgin Media and pay the £7 monthly for their booster?

No. Because you’re only renting the boosters and have to return them when you end your custom.

Whereas your own router you would keep and use on whichever ISP you use, and also future-proof yourself.
