Hub One horrendous wifi performance for all devices - wired fine

Still having some horrendous wifi issues, I can be sat within 5 foot of the hubone and my iphone will still spinny wheel of doom til I drop the wifi and use my 4G data..

Wired performance is spot on..

@teamdb 

Try splitting the 2.4 and 5GHz bands, see https://community.plus.net/t5/My-Router/2-4ghz-and-or-5ghz-best-practice/m-p/1351966#M840

Try each band in turn and use the best.

That was one of the first things I did when I got the hub one. Doesn't matter if 5ghz is off, performance is atrocious.

The PlusNet router is basic (a re-badged BT HH5) as per PlusNet's status as a "value" not premium brand.

 

You could consider getting a BT HH6 or the even newer SmartHub2 from eBay for aroung £30.
