Just wondering if anyone has had issues with their wireless network after getting the wireless STBs installed?

We had our STBs upgraded about 6 weeks ago, they were previously using coax and now use wifi.

Since then our home wifi has gone seriously downhill, we need to reset the router (T3200m) pretty much nightly. Could the STBs be causing an issue or should I be looking elsewhere?

I have 2 wireless STB's, and recently upgraded to the 75 up package, and have not noticed any degradation in wifi signal in the house, or even when outside in the garden.

Try moving the WL STB to different locations, looking for a HOT SPOT....it might be overloading Wi-Fi with repeat requests...
Locating it close to other metal boxes can also attenuate signals and possibly degrade it's Antenna Pattern

Thanks for the replies. I did a factory reset on the router which seems to have helped. Glad to hear it may not be the STBs.
