Fibre broadband 12-34mps

Now I'm on fibre broadband, but I seem to have two logins 5GHz-EE-9wxx9w and EE-9wxx9w. 

My phone Samsung Galaxy S6,  my Samsung Smart TV and my Tablet have connect to the 1st login and my wife's phone Samsung J5 and Tower PC are on the 2nd login, why the 2 logins.

 

Best regards

 

David

Re: Fibre broadband 12-34mps

Your router's WiFi has 2 bands, 2.4 GHz & 5 GHz. 5 GHz is generally faster but does not have such a great range.

 

Not all devices do 5 GHz WiFi, but most will choose the stronger signal. Just let them do their own thing.

Re: Fibre broadband 12-34mps

Thanks   for your reply.

 

In meantime I have been learning about the dual band fibre broadband.

 

I have realised that my new PC as a single band 2.4GHz T-link adapter which I will change to a 5Ghz.

 

Is it possible to find the wireless range of the new Fibre router?

 

My TV is a Samsung Smart and although it recieves 5Ghz its "dropped out" twice whilst watching catch up.

The TV is 20feet as the "crow flies" from the router.

 

Is there a USB/HDMI plug-in wireless signal booster I can plug into the TV.

 

Best regards

Re: Fibre broadband 12-34mps

There are Powerline or HomePlug WiFi extenders, like Powerline Extenders at Amazon .

 

Try connecting the TV to the 2.4 GHz SSID.

 

The dual-band is the WiFi within your home. The Fibre BB is between the router & your local cab.

Re: Fibre broadband 12-34mps

Hi  XRaySpeex

 

Thanks again for your help

 

I have bought this (2.4GHz):-

 

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00AHXXJVW/ref=psdc_430578031_t3_B01BDC74Q6

 

and hard wired from it to my smart TV, all good now.

 

Just to clarify something.

I thought the fibre was from the exchange to the cabinet and copper from the cbinet to my house as nothing was change from the pole to my home, so I'm thinking that nothing was changed fro the pole to the cabinet?

 

Best regards

Re: Fibre broadband 12-34mps

Thanks! You're welcome :)! Glad I could be of assistance & that TV is working now.

 

You're right! I was being a bit loose & trying to say it was BB from cab to router. It is Fibre to the Cab (FTTC) & copper thereafter.
