You could try splitting out your wifi bands and disabling WiFi optimisation / Smart . Intelligent Wifi:
You can split the WiFi bands by accessing your hub settings - to do this, you'll need to be connected to your hub and type in 192.168.0.1 into your web browser. You;ll then need to enter your hub's setting password (this can be found on the bottom of the hub).
Once you've access the dashboard, you'll need to go to advanced settings and then wireless - security. From there, you just need to change the SSIDs of both the 2.4ghz and the 5ghz signal to different names, you can just add on 2G and 5G to the end of the current network name.
Hit Save and then it should work!
Bear in mind that you'll have to reconnect all of your devices to the new SSIDs
Are connections all good when situated near the Hub and they start to fall off/drop as yiou move further away from it ?
Are ethernet cable connected devices ok - if you dont know - can you check
If 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 its still no substitute for getting better kit 🙂
To address the wifi, VM now supply “wifi Pods” (not “boosters”). Pods are free (so worth trying) to “some customers” (those on 1GB or Ultimate Oomph packages) but others will be charged £5/month and right now they are in short supply due to supply issues
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.
Did you not have BT's whole home wifi package (for an extra £10/month)?
