Iphone interfering with wifi

Hi all

We have great speed on our virgin broadband over wifi. I work on Teams video calls most of the day - generally connection is good. However, I've realised that my signal always drops when my husband walks into the room with the router in it, and I think it might be his Iphone that is interfering. Or his body. One of the two.

Any suggestions on how to resolve this? Is there a setting on the router we can fix related to his Iphone connection?

Do a simple test.

Ask him to leave his iPhone in another room then go into the Hub room - if the Wi-Fi drops it may be him blocking the signal.

If it doesn't drop tell him to get the phone and come back in and see if it drops.

If the Hub is in the same room as you, try connecting with a Cat 6 ethernet cable.
