Default BT home hub issues?

Going back to BT. (before anyone says not to, I was with them before and
had a flawless service so have no reason not to use them again).

Now about this home hub, anyone here using it? Any issues I should be aware
of?
I am happy with my router, do I have to use the home hub?

Just out of interest, if that is the case, why did you leave..?

It was purely on a financial basis, I wanted a cheaper service to save some
money but it hasn't really worked out.

A friend who I 'support' has one. Can't say I'm overly impressed. Lots of
reboots required, flaky wireless performance, an admin interface that
believes interface=obfuscate.

Apart from that, it's fine

Thankyou. I might just stick to my plain old router then :-)

Looks like I will not be moving after all. BT now have a crappy system
whereby the broadband can only be billed by direct debit along with the
phonebill. They cannot be seperate. Seeing as my mum pays the phonebill
and I pay the broadband, BT have lost a customer.

Thats one of the reasons why I've left BT and gone to Sky Broadband for 10
a month!

I am Unhappy that I have to pay BT BB still evan though I won't be useing
it.

Think the best thing to do is change the package down to option one and pay
them a rip off amount of 17.99 a month (53.97p every 3 months)

Can't she pay the bill and you pay her the broadband component..?

She doesn't pay by DD either, she pays by payment card weekly.

They're not that bad. The wifi bit can be flaky due to auto channel
allocation. I set it to use a manually allocated channel and it's been
remarkably stable ever since.

My connection has been up for 5 days - the last restart was for a
firmware upgrade from what I can tell.
