You’d really need to explain better what you want to do. Why do you think everything is clashing? Do you have some issues with devices connecting?
Looks fine to me, what's the issue? Devices will pick 2.4 or 5 GHz automatically depending on compatibility, you don't need to mess with anything.
It’s TalkTalk they are rubbish with multiple devices
Mine was all plug and play, no worries. I’ve nothing fancy other than using another old router as a bridge to extend the signal out to the garage but all worked easy.

well the ping is real crap - should be about 12ms - the download speed is about right but uload is a little slow. switch off router - wait 15 mins or so and switch back on. also you would be better talking direct in talktalk forum or their twitter feed

Looking better! A quick router restart should always be your first troubleshooting step.


Arto30/12/2019 21:52

Still not as good as mine


Congrats bro. Here's your Blue Peter badge.

£72 pm but I get 2 boxes and every channel
What you do here to improve speed is firstly call talk talk and explain that you didn’t realise talk talk was so crap when signing up.
Secondly clear out all talk talk paraphernalia
3rd accept you have been reborn
4th promise yourself that you will never use talk talk again
5th join a support group during your rehabilitation period
And lastly find a new supplier.
Your welcome
You shouldn't post your ip for people to see, just a heads up

I get 12mb on a medium fibre connection when by router is plugged into a normal socket. When plugged into a open reach socket I get full speed. Later socket is located right near front door and there is no power socket/source!

Not easy at it sounds. I am happy with 12mb as all media devices are wired corrected and phones on WiFi which is still good speed.

Before this provider I was with NowTv and with their router I had no issues.
