When I finish work, we like to sit and watch a programme on TV, at the moment we are watching Grey’s Anatomy using a streaming service. We have been having a frustrating issue, in that the device keeps losing network connectivity. It seems like this mostly happens when we are using our phones or tablets. In which case it’s a bandwidth issue.
When I do a bandwidth availability check, we should have more than enough for the streamer to work, and usually be doing something like checking email, doing this blog or playing word with friends. But, it’s not happening. The cut outs definitely increase when we are using these devices.
We have a mesh network, which appears to be good, but we loose a lot from the hubs location to the nodes. What is 200+ in the office, becomes 35 in the lounge. I’d suggest this is down to the placement of the mesh nodes and is not helped by the thick brick walls that some of my signals have to go through.
I am working on this.
