4g modem cuts in and out with multiple devices connected and running

Wi-Fi works fine on phone or laptop on their own but the minute I or my partner starts playing on another device Wi-Fi cuts in and out. .. eg streaming Netflix on laptop playing fine then I go and search something on my phone and the streaming stops and search on phone is so slow. Not impressed... be trying this for over a month and it seems to be getting worse.

Re: 4g modem cuts in and out with multiple devices connected and running

Hmm well I suspect that would happen to some degree to many people as the modem is not sitting around waiting for someone to connect. Device number 1 might be using all the bandwidth and all of sudden Device number 2 is jumping in. I don't think too many modems load balance the way you expect and subsequently this will happen especially if device number 1 is doing something intensive.

I often run 2 or more devices off the one 4G connection and if I am downloading movies or torrents on one device my second device often times out. Keep in mind that if you have an average to poor signal the results are often worse.

Yeah thanks. Never had that problem running an aldi SIM out of a Kogan modem. Will give it another month
