Ok so a few weeks back, my Huawei wifi router suddenly died and finally I got Spark to replace it. I now have wifi but it is not working well anywhere in the house. Have changed channels and checked with a wifi analyser and the problems don't make immediate sense.
So Spark router is new but this goes into an edimax box es3308p which then goes into the main box with all the cables in it. Then it runs down by Ethernet to an old d link 22m away and that deals with wifi at the other end of the house. So Huawei - Edimax - Ethernet - D Link. It strikes me as strange that I don't run the Huawei to the box via an Ethernet cable and straight to the D Link? Do I need the switch? Any views on this?
Next, if say the D Link or Edimax is not running well, will that affect both routers? I have my tablet set to show me how many kb per sec and it jumps around all over the place from 0 to 2 to 70 to 150 and back again every 5 secs or so. This happens if I am sitting right beside a router and happens on both routers. Is this normal? We have VDSL
