So recently our WiFi has been really slow and the router has been over heating, half the house either gets a really bad signal or doesn’t get any at all. I was wondering if the placement of the router has anything to do with this (top floor on the window that’s facing the outer bit of the house) and if it does we cannot move it cause the cabling is not long enough to be put anywhere else. I have rebooted and reset the router and ran Virgins tests but they all say the WiFi is fine and there are no issues in the area.
Re: WiFi suddenly slow, might need to move the hub.
There's been a small but steady trickle of "yellow LED" reports for a while now. There's no official line on what this means. In some cases it will be simply batch variation and "off white" with no impact on performance, but to appear noticeably yellow might mean that there are voltage control problems with the hub, and that could lead to all manner of variable performance. The majority of cases I've encountered in these forums have been the Yellow Light of Doom, and the hub needs replacing, but whether this is similar I can't say.
I suspect that it might be worth trying to establish whether this is actually a wireless or a cable quality problem. I can't devote the time at the moment, but @carl_pearce , you're a rising star in the forum, do you want to do the digging to establish if this is wireless or cable that's at fault?
