How to stop fing box intermittently slowing internet of devices with scheduled pause?
I have two devices that have a scheduled pause from 10.30pm to 7am daily. This works well.
However, during the day when these two devices (one newish moto phone and one oldish macbook) should have full internet connection the internet speed is intermittently (but frequently) slowed right down (on only these two devices). E.g. for about a minute the speed looks about right (e.g. down:45Mbps, up:10Mbps) but then for at least a couple of minutes it is really slow (e.g. down:2Mbps, up:0.4Mbps). This is obviously not usable whilst we're in lockdown and the devices are being used all the time for online schoolwork.
After disconnecting the fingbox there has not been a problem (2 days).
The network layout starts with an ISP supplied modem/router with the fingbox connected directly to that. The devices are connecting to a BT Whole Home WiFi mesh network which has the primary disk also connected directly to the modem/router. The devices usually connect to a secondary mesh disk but have the same problem when connected to the primary disk.
Obviously I want the fingbox connected, what settings or otherwise should I be looking at to fix the problem?
Thanks! Keep safe,
