yitz: I know with Wi-Fi Alliance Miracast screen mirroring many devices (i.e. the 'sending' laptop, tablet, phone etc.) will use the same channel they use to connect to the AP to transmit the mirrored picture to the receiver. If the channel was already poor quality as suggested above, it may not be able to handle the data throughput required for screen mirroring and this can have an impact, so in this way whatever channel the HG659 has picked to transmit on can have an impact on screen mirroring.


Airplay doesn't use WiFi-Direct. Airplay receiving device sets up an independent connection to the source (over existing infrastructure mode wireless or wired network).




Spark FibreMAX using Mikrotik CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+. UAP, UAP AC Pro, UAP AC Pro Mesh, Apple TV 4, Apple TV 4K, iPad Air 1, iPhone 6s, VodaTV Gen 2. If it doesn't move then it's data cabled.

nicks: Can anyone tell me the wifi device limit for the Vodafone Huawei HG659? I've had a search on GZ and the Vodafone community etc but can't see it anywhere obvious.

What happens when you reach the limit? Does an inactive device get kicked off?

Cheers


I have a Spark-sourced HG659b and it currently knows of 21 Wifi devices and I've had no issues with any of them connecting. They haven't all been connected simultaneously, but they have all been on recently.

How do you manage channels on a router? All I know about is that there are two bands.

In the "WLAN Settings" page on the HG659b you click on "Advanced Settings" and you can choose / specify the channel settings there and save them. This can be done for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz.

It might help to move your other devices to 5GHz, to leave your 2.4GHz band free for your Apple TV. It might also be worth using a WiFi scanner app on a phone to check what 2.4GHz channels your neighbours are using, and switching your modem to a different channel.


Latest firmware version at Spark is V100R001C227B020 -- I don't know how that differs from Vodafone's, which looks to be an earlier version. But maybe worth a try?

I haven't checked if the firmware is upgraded yet, thanks for this info. Will do when I find time, have printed instructions. No, I can't run an Ethernet cable from the router. Other devices in the area work fine but not the ate.
