1.It's worth replacing the BT Homehub Router (versions 1 or 2, the just out version 3 has a secret sauce I haven't tried). I'm pleased with this one
for £36. A good feature is that the re-set is far faster than the BT Homehub.
2.If you keep your router by your computer, then connect with an ethernet cable to avoid your brainwaves scrambling the wi-fi.
3. A big part of my problems has been the lighting wiring in my ceiling. When I turned the bathroom light on, it knocked out the wi-fi connection due to the power surge in 1 cable running over the phone cable. Now it's fixed, but no thanks to BT which never diagnosed it in multiple visits.
4. I now get a mostly steady 5.7/.370mbps speed which seems like a blessing, tho for rather less money in America I get 14/2.
5. It's pathetic that in the centre of the world's financial capital the only choice available is ancient rat-bitten cabling a mile from the exchange. It puts the ad into adsl; ante-diluvian.
