      Question Sky Hub 2.1 and 802.11n?

      Sky BB customer for over 7 years, I had a very old router and so Sky sent me this new one for free.

      I was hoping to get better wireless speeds as this one supports 801.11n, but my iPhone is only getting around 10Mbps down (I get 16/17Mbps when wired..)

      How do you enable the 802.11n mode? There isn't an option for it in the settings?

      Thanks.

      The Auto setting gives you N speed. If you have not changed it it should be set by default.

      With regards your speed, try changing the Channel from the default Auto setting. Download a wifi analyser for your iphone and use that to find your clearest channel. The Auto setting works well for some, but others find it is not the best choice.
