Is the router the problem?

6 minutes ago, Ryaou said:

I've been having connection problems with my ONT router/WiFi which is the ISP provided router, a Huawei HG8245T.

it's sometimes randomly slow (it isn't just the internet, accessing the router's settings is also slow) and sometimes WiFi just stops working until someone turns it off then on again (This is seems to be happening randomly).

 

 

This is definitely the router being the problem, right? I've been hesitant because I don't know if I'm ignorant of something I don't know about.

I'll let you into a trade secret. These routers ISPs provide, they're garbage. If you've been using the same router for 1-2 years, that's pretty much what will happen. They have decent performance but are not built to last. Call technical support from you ISP and request for a replacement.

Yup router... if the wired ethernet connection is stable, you can plug another router (cheaper one without SIM card slot) into it and use that as wifi repeater.

If you haven't already try a factory reset. Can sometimes help a little.


If you're interested in a product please download and read the manual first.

Don't forget to tag or quote in your reply if you want me to know you've answered or have another question.
