    Help with my mums bt homehub

    we connected it up and set up the bt homehub, when we try and go wireless it lets us go on for a while then cuts us off, it seems to take about 5 minutes to load up a page to. I think its 54mbps. Does anyone know what we are doing wrong?

    Try changing the channel the hub is working on. Log into the hob via 192.168.1.254 and goto advanced and wireless (something like that).

    Yeah, sounds like the channel is a bit busy, as Paddy says go into your settings page and change the channel selection. It'll probably be set to 'automatic' so just click on the drop-down menu and change it to a channel number, click 'apply' and see if that sorts the problem. If not then try another channel number and keep doing that until you get a clearer channel to use.

    Try this page for some good explanations:

    "There's a chance that another device in your home (such as an AV sender for transmitting video to another telly) could be clashing with the standard BT Home Hub wi-fi channel. There are 13 wi-fi channels available. Perhaps change the default channel. (Advanced > Wireless > Configure > "Channel Selection:" ) "

    "By default, the BT Home Hub comes with Channel 1 enabled on the automatic session. Many have found this setting causes repeated drop outs. Apparently, the BT help desk actually recommend you use channel 9-11 for best connectivity using the manual setting."
