Does the Gigabox have to be in Modem mode for a Wireless AP to be installed in my network?
I have been having problems for a long time with my AP requiring to be reset every day. I have tried another AP with the same result and I have connected the AP directly to the gigabox through my home ethernet avoiding our switch. Same result.
The Gigabox is in my cellar and broadcasting under a different SSID.
The AP is on the Ground floor with the same SSID as another one on the first floor.
Neither signal is strong enough to be used on another floor.
Both need to be reset regularly - more than daily.
By unplugging and directly connecting one to the Gigabox and trying different AP boxes, I think I can isolate the problem to the Gigabox.
Note that additionally we also randomly lose our phone connection on this box.
Ethernet connections seem to be more stable, but occasionally we lose that connection too.
There are a lot of devices connected via ethernet (Xboxes, PS4, TV, UPC TV boxes, iMac, MacMini, NAS drives, Sonos, AppleTV, Printer etc etc)
Comparatively few use Wifi (3 PC’s, 1 Macbook, 3 iPads, 4 Phones)
But I don’t think we have ever achieved the 1Gb download speed that we pay for.
But, back to the main topic, maybe if I make the Gigabox use Modem mode it will fix the Wifi AP issue?
What do you think?
