15 Oct Poor Wifi Connection with BT HomeHub
“I have a BT Homehub Router and my Mac keeps losing its wifi connection. My Macs wifi connection is running slowly even though my other devices are fine.”
What is going on?
Your BT router is creating two wireless networks at the same time with the same name and your Mac doesn’t like this. One is a 5Ghz network, one is a 2.4 Ghz network. The BT router does this seamlessly by joining both networks together with the same name to allow old and new technology to connect to it at the same time.
How to stop this happening
In order to resolve this problem, what you need to do is to connect to your BT router and make a couple of changes. (There are quite a few variations on the BT router so these instructions may not be word perfect but should help.)
or if you know the ip address of your router just type that into the address bar e.g: 192.168.1.254
You should see a BT router home page if this has worked correctly.
You now need to change the names.
