[Herts] Best broadband in Stevenage

I found that VM enable a feature on the "Super"Hubs that makes WiFi
clients disconnect if they exchange too much data - sounds like this
could be your issue.

Login to the super, locate and disable the wifi option "IP Flooding
Check" or something to that effect (mine is in modem mode now so I can't

Basically, the hub deems any client that is moving a lot of traffic to
be "flooding" and kicks it off.  In my experience the threshold is far
too low for streaming etc.  Which lead to my laptop having it's
connection dropped repeatedly.

Hope it helps.
