This is what I can't understand, because my wifi works absolutely fine.

Do you live in a very big house?

nah, it must just be certain things that cause the hub to reboot, other routers, baby monitors. that would explain the shock of reliability so far tonight.

Actually it reminds me of the Only Fools and Horses that was on last night, where they had a satelite dish nicked from Gatwick.

If it is of any interest I noticed that during the height of the holiday season (last 2 in July, First 2 in August) my superhub, running then in the 2.4ghz band at 145mbps, was relatively stable. I think it was during this period when I achieved 13 days up with it, my personal record. Lots of the usual routers that a scan picks up were missing during that period so I definately think the rebooting is an interference issue. Later when the holiday period was over the superhub was back to it's usual spontaneous randomly rebooting behaviour.

In 5ghz at 300mbps, in spite of being the only one using it locally, the superhub was still rebooting. Less frequently though, maybe 2 to 5 times a day.

I'm now running in modem mode with an asus rt-n16 router and the set up is rock solid.

My wireless networks see very little use so apart from beacons will be causing virtually no interference. >99.99% of my network traffic is wired.

As for the glow, that's because I have one of these attached to my window to make it easier to spot where to aim my antenna when doing long-distance tests at night. It's literally visible miles away, but then that's the point.

Anyway. This thread has served its purpose, or not. To avoid "boring" this forum with any more information you may or may not be interested in, I'm moving the rest here:

Hey qasi, I wasn't being serious. I was joking based on the pictures you posted

Re: Battle of the Hubs - The Prequel

Yes, I did.

But all joking aside, I do have a half dozen wireless networks running usually, mostly at low power as one of the things I'm trying to figure out is the giant clusterf...udge that is wireless roaming.

That and I was completely serious about the glow. This is my window right now.

Isn't it harmful to have all those radio signals in your house?

Re: Battle of the Hubs - The Prequel

No.

Remember US power limits for wireless networks are at least ten times higher than in the UK.

And how the US is the land of freedom, where you can sue anyone for anything.

We'd have heard about it by now.
