I received today the new Wifi Hub, all plugged in and working OK thank you.
Couple of questions:
- I had problems with a couple of devices on my HG633 router that I fixed by giving them static IP addresses above 192.168.1.100 and limiting the IP4 pool to under that setting. On the new hub I try to set the top of the pool to 192.168.1.99 and it says 'Invalid IP address'. Weirdly it also says this for the the pool start value which I have not changed. I wasn't sure if I needed to do this anyway but since I got everything working that way I'm trying to replicate it on the new router.
- None of my wireless devices have connected to the 5GHz band, I guess they have all decided they are getting good enough throughput?
Thanks for any input, cheers
OK I have reset the router.
The firmware is still SG4K10001400t.
I can now apparently edit the IP4 pool range, but when I did it tells me that the router address of 192.168.1.1 is invalid and won't let me save. I haven't changed that.
Also all of my friendly names seems to have disappeared.
It's all a bit random! Makes me nervous about the service.
OK, if you leave the router on it should update automatically over the next 24 hours, the software version you are looking for is SG4K10002600t. Keep us posted, the support team can force it to you if necessary. Nothing to be nervous about, help is at hand. 🙂
Just to say I've now checked the router and as you say it's now been upgraded to latest firmware.
Fibre upgrade finally happened yesterday, all is working. Speed isn't quite what I was expecting (about 22Mbps) but a lot better than I when I was on copper (averaged around 8Mbps). I understand it can take a couple of weeks to settle down so I'll keep an eye on it and start a new thread if I have get any issues.
