      Poor router Wifi Any advice?

      I've a household of 7 people, 5 of the 7 have a phone and other device, the other 2 have either tablet or iPod, all of which use the wifi, potentially 12 devices if everyone is at home together. my sky black hub randomly blocks connection or drops connection to devices even when everyone is not home. We have 2 boosters running at opposite ends of the house with the hub in the centre, the wifi signal indicator when devices are connected, show full strength, sky customer services couldn't really help other than to blame too many devices running. Am I over capacity with my devices? Is there a device I can add to fix or is sky not for our household's usage and if so any ideas who's hardware could support us?

      Mine did exactly this and I got sick of my SR102 wifi and got a unifi : Ubiquiti UAP-AC-LITE UniFi AC1200 Simultaneous Dual-Band WiFi PoE Access Point w/ 3-Year Hosted Cloud Controller Service (1200Mbps AC)

      This now happily runs about 20 devices on my home network and manages it much better.

      That looks like a good bit of kit, is it SR102 compatible or does the router need replacing?

      You disable the wifi on the SR102 and plug the Ubiquiti into one of the lan ports. Thats it! I got mine with the free hosted cloud support so come pre configured - plug and play!
