Apologies, the channel should not be changing as the Wi-Fi optimisation has been switched off for your line.
Have you recently made changes to the wireless channels/settings?

It changes channels less frequently now, but it's still doing it 😅
Channel: (1/6) Channel Hopping initiated/Manually initiated
Channel: (6/1) Channel Hopping initiated/Manually initiated
Channel: (52/48) Channel Hopping initiated/Manually initiated
The Hub really seemed to like channel 1, so I just let it stay on 1 after it switched again and after restarting the extender (which I think is the only 2.4 device that doesn't reconnect after a channel hop) the connection for everyone was fine in terms of speed and stability for a couple of days, then it suddenly switched to 6.
5GHz: It was stable on 52, before it switched to 48.

Thanks both of you.
The 2.4GHz band has been stable apart from one channel hop in the log yesterday morning, hopefully that won't be a problem any more. Unfortunately channels 1 and 6 seem like even worse options (there seem to be so many BT Hubs around here!), but I think I'll try 6 if it hops again.
I will keep an eye on the 5GHz because that changed this morning but it is a smaller issue. Wondering if it's related to DFS.

Hi semicherchi, optimisation is still turned off. Both current channels are showing as congested. It might be worth trying different channels to maintain stability.

It happened once earlier this evening, but I restarted the Hub and everything has been fine since then.
Thanks so much
edit: Perhaps not - just after I posted this, they changed again!

Hi, I just saw this sorry!
Yes, a couple of problems.
When the 2.4GHz channel changes it disconnects an extender I'm using (as well as the devices attached to it) and the extender doesn't always reconnect automatically. I manually set it to channel 11 because scans show this is clear, but it likes to change to channel 1, which has several networks broadcasting.
I also set the 5GHz channel to 56 to keep it away from a separate 5GHz network Sky Q uses to share with a Mini, but the Hub occasionally changes this to 44 so there is a direct overlap. Having the channels even adjacent to each other and downloading something at full speed can affect the sound (I still have no idea why), so I'd rather keep them apart.

Is the wifi optimisation causing any problems as it designed to provide a more stable wifi connection throughout your home so really wifi performance should be better with it enabled?
