I am trying to work remotely from home. I am trying to connect to work via Slashtop or Anydesk. Neither will connect. TalkTalk have turned off Homesafe settings and I have turned off firewall on laptop but still it will not connect. Any ideas?

Sorry I didn't realise that you already had a thread of your own, have you identified your router yet?

Thank you Debbie.
I have just done as you suggested. I renamed the SSID to the names you suggested. The channels were already set to 6 & 44. I have just successfully connected to Slashtop.
almost a week spent communicating with TalkTalk and not once was this suggested by the tech team. Such an easy fix. I think lots of people are having this issue at the moment.
thanks so much for your help.

Thanks for your reply.
Please can you try splitting the SSID's?
You could try splitting the SSIDs on your router and testing the connection between the 5gh channel and the 2gh channel, some devices operate better with just 1 channel selected.
Log into the router (192.168.1.1 etc ) and manually change the SSID (Wi Fi) name of the 5ghz channel.
I often find it is better to keep the 2 broadcast channels separate. For example, I have changed mine, and call one Home2Ghz and the other Home5Ghz. Some devices can drop the connection when the SSID's remain the same.
Also, you can try manually setting the wifi channel for each broadcast channel. Try channel 6 for the 2ghz channel and 44 for the 5ghz channel.
Give this a try , test with both SSID's and see if the connection improves.
