Wi-Fi Hub impressions

Hello,

 

I'm curious to see what people think about the Wi-Fi Hub and its performance. I have been mulling over it for the past couple of weeks (via various online reviews) wondering if I can get it for free being on a faster fibre customer with speed boost contract. All feedback is welcome.

It is certainly of a much higher Wi-Fi specification, but unless you have a corresponding high specification wireless adapter in your PC, you will never see the advantages there. It does have Gigabit Ethernet ports, unlike the HG633 & DSL-3782.

 

If you have older Wi-Fi network adapters in your devices, I think the speed is broadly similar to the HG633 running V2.00 firmware. The HG633 is far more configurable than the hub, but I have requested the developers change this in a future firmware release.

Thanks for the feedback. It's good to know about the gigabit ethernet ports as well as the Wi-Fi - I have read that both are superior on the Wi-Fi Hub compared to the HG633. Have you noticed any little disconnects when moving the hub slightly or correcting the rj11 cable? Being a HG633 owner these are things I've noticed when tidying the cables (not huge movement of cables either, just correcting them slightly).

That must justbe a dodgy connection, is the RJ11 connector pressed fully home & is the latching clip correcltly secured?

I've checked and both ends are secure. The clip is clicked in and neither slides out.

Then you must have a faulty cable/socket on the rear of the router.

Yes I agree. I can narrow it down to the socket on the router in that case. I Had an Asus DSL-AC68U before and never had this kind of issue with it.

Create a thread in the fibre board then & the OCEs will swap it out.
