      Minis with mix of wifi and powerline and BT Smarthub

      Hoping someone can help. Had sky engineer here for 2 hours and eventually he gave up and has referrred me to Q Tech who I have not yet heard off. My Silver box is connected by Powerline to the BT Smart Hub and I have 2 Minis connected by Wifi - this works perfectly.

      I have a third mini which I want to connect and just cannot get a stable connection. He tried two boosters and despite it showing strong signal the connection just dropped. Starts off fine for about a minute and then loses it completely. He then inisted that hard wiring it had to work so we used another powerline. This works perfectly for about 5 minutes and then loses connection to the Q box. It shows the netwrok as connected but no connection to the Q box. Have tried this several times and get the same result. Is there any reason why having a mix of wifi and powerline shouldn't work or indeed anything else I need to do on the powerline setup? The engineer seemed very confused as was convinced this should be fine.
