The Smart Hubs are limited to wifi connections. I have a ZTE MF279T and am always struggling with having to shut off connected devices, cameras, kids devices etc. etc.
Is there something I can do to combat this problem?
Also another thing you could possibly do is, if you have another wireless router that has bridge mode. You could put the other wireless router into bridge mode and use that as your wireless access point and turn off wifi on your smart hub. It is possible you can get more wifi users on that way! Because it would be going through Ethernet port rather than wifi on the smart hub.

Re: Smart Hub is limited wifi.
If you can separate the two bands and set up two independent WiFi networks, one for 5G and one for 2.4G, you will have more control. The 2.4G band has more range than the 5G. You could sign on the more distant (weaker signal) devices to the 2.4 G.
Did you actually replace the ZTE MF279 with the Nighthawk? Or in addition to it? (I'm kind of new to this.) We have spent hours on the phone with Telus because our MF279T just stops - randomly. All of the devices are connected but it won't talk to the outside world.
