Re: Hub 3 - connection drops and slow speeds

Sorry to rekindle this post; thought it better to do this rather than start a whole new one, again...!

 

We've 350Mbps broadband; faultless on Ethernet, but wifi (5Ghz) we're lucky to see 50Mbps+ and 2.4Ghz is about as useless as using a colander to catch water...!

 

I've reset the SH3, no change...

 

I'm about to pull the plug on a TP Link sent of Mesh repeaters, but having a SH3 that works would be a lot simpler and TBH; I'm paying for that, so why should I have to fix it's unreliability myself and be out of pocket!

 

TBH I don't want to 'call technical support' as they're painful at the best of times and they do NOT listen... I'm fairly tech savvy, so just need them to listen to the issues and help from there, not go round & round in circles...!

 

Any thoughts/latest advice re this before I look to escalate it

 

Cheers 👍🏼

Re: Hub 3 - connection drops and slow speeds

Hello d_a_n1979,

Welcome back to the forums! Thanks for your post.

I'm sorry to hear you've been having some problems with your wireless speeds, and haven't had the best experience when calling our team in the past.

Slow wireless speeds can be caused by a multitude of different reasons, it may be an issue with the hub, other equipment in the home or something to do with your wireless set up. I've looked on this side and everything appears to be fine.

I'd first try factory resetting your hub which will allow all the wireless connections to refresh, let us know if that helps first.

We also have some tips here on how to improve WiFi. Let us know if that helps.

Beth

Re: Hub 3 - connection drops and slow speeds

Thanks Beth

 

SH3 factory reset a number of times...

 

Some weeks its fine, others its shocking and no matter how many times it gets reset; it defaults to the same issues, time & time again

 

Bar upgrading to the latest Superhub or forking out my own £££ for another router and sticking this into modem mode; there aren't really many other options!

Re: Hub 3 - connection drops and slow speeds

Hi d_a_n1979,

Thanks for getting back to us. Sorry to hear that factory reset has not helped in this case.

I know you mentioned that ethernet connections are fine, but have you noticed any change at all with the ethernet connected devices during the off weeks?

We also offer WiFi Pods which will help with the speeds and overall connection around the home. More information on them can be found here. Let us know if you'd be interested in ordering them.

Thanks

Beth

Re: Hub 3 - connection drops and slow speeds

Thanks Beth

 

I'm all sorted thanks

 

I've gone and bought the TP Link Deco mesh system and it's working a treat. SH3 into modem mode, the Deco is doing all the wifi work

 

It's lightning fast compared to the SH3 also; on 5Ghz channel via the SH3 I'd rarely get over 90Mbps download speed (tested via Speedtest using my M1 MBA, iPhone 13 Pro Max, Samsung A53 5H etc). Via Ethernet it was 350Mbps as it should, zero issues

 

Now I'm getting 300-350Mbps via the Deco wireless mesh...

 

Just shows you how bad the SH3 is!
