My TalkTalk WiFi hub seems to be obsessed with switching to congested channels. I've manually switched this to less congested channels, and the speeds have been great. The router keeps switching back to the same channel as the 2nd Access Point I am running and reduces the bandwidth to 20MHz and causes data collisions. There are very weak signals from other routers where I live and simply cannot see that its automatic channel selection is logical.
I believe this is remotely managed, is there any possibility of removing this remote management?Its fairly evident that it simply doesn't work very well.
Apologies for this.
I have arranged for the Wi-Fi optimisation technology to be switched off on your line.
Please let us know how the connection compares following this.
Hi Debbie, many thanks for arranging this change which seems to be working, the WiFi Hub is sticking to my selected channel and i'm getting 40MHz bandwidth with no problems.
