Re: My box in one room will not link the the box in another

It may be that you and your neighbour are sharing the same channel frequency which means the wireless signal will deteriorate.
You could do a search for an app such as wifi analyzer or inssider which tells you the strength of the channel you are connected on, and also shows other channels so you can decide if you want to change the channel number on your hub
Advanced Settings > Wireless > Wireless Signal > beneath both the 5Ghz and 2.4GHz sections click on the manual button, and in the drop down box click on the channel number you want to change it to, then scroll down and click on Apply Changes.
You could also try splitting the 2.4GHz and the 5GHz signals. 2.4GHz is a stronger signal but slower than 5GHz so if you have problems on 5GHz change to 2.4GHz.
Open a browser and log into your hub 192.168.0.1 - then navigate to the following settings so you can differentiate between the signals.
Advanced Settings > Wireless Signal > click on Disable Channel Optimization then scroll down and click on Apply Changes.
Now go to Advanced Settings > Wireless > Security > Add a 5 to the 5 GHz Channel name and click on Apply Changes.
You can leave the passwords the same as they are. Then log out of the hub at the top of the page
You will need to reconnect all you Wi-Fi devices some will want to connect to 5Ghz and some to 2.4GHz and some will connect to either.
The ones furthest away will probably be best on 2.4 as that signal will be stronger and carries further even though it may not be the fastest. (Fastest doesn't always equate to best connection)
