So are you using the hubs Wi-Fi broadcast or the other routers Wi-Fi?

And which one is dropping out?

What is the make and model of the router?

So the issue lies with the hubs (already mentioned, poor) WiFi?

Re: Wifi Dropping, Ethernet Fine

That's my assumption yes. I question why problems only started with ip address change. I've had near perfect broadband/ wifi for 15+ years...

Re: Wifi Dropping, Ethernet Fine

Could be coincidence. Could be that a neighbour has got a new router or ISP and it’s overlapping the hubs WiFi and knocking it out. There’s many factors that could be the cause.

Re: Wifi Dropping, Ethernet Fine

Thanks

So what should I try? Turn off smart wifi and manually set channels? Seems to defeat the benefit of the system...
