BT Home Hub 3 ADSL Wi-Fi router
Register Hardware reports: [edited]
When you set up any router it automatically picks the clearest frequency. Trouble is, it’s stuck with it. So if something else pops up that isn’t Wi-Fi friendly, it can cause problems. BT’s latest router has Smart Wireless which aims to take the stuttering and guesswork away. Smart Wireless means the Home Hub 3 can dynamically change what frequency it’s on if it spots trouble. Other routers don’t do this automatically.
It has a neat detail when it comes to passwords. The Home Hub 3 has a plastic fob with the password on that slides out under your thumb easily and is so curiously shaped that you’ll remember it must pop back into the machine when you’ve reacquainted yourself with the code.
Price: £92, £46 for BT customers, free with BT Infinity or broadband contract.
