With regards to other wireless networks, looks like they are using channels 1, 6 and 11 and the super hub ( virgin media ) is pants. Out of ideas on how to increase power to the wireless or anything that may help ?? I will be looking at doing the same as Localzuk ref buying a zyxel cable router at some point soon but will this resolve the issue or will I just come a cropper again because all the main channels are being used etc ?
Any ideas on how to get the wireless working as it should ??

1) Is your wireless network the green one in the screenshot above?
2) Is the SuperHub currently set to the 5GHz 802.11n band? The iPhone can only connect to 2.4GHz 802.11n networks.
3) Is the SuperHub situated near anything which could interfere with its wireless signal? e.g. radiator, foil-backed wall board, plasma TV, DECT phones etc.
4) Does the SuperHub have a setting to enable WMM?
5) Does the SuperHub have the latest firmware installed? R30?

2. No it is on the 2.4 Ghz band as am aware ref the 5ghz band and iphone not supporting the 5 ghz band
3. Near a wireless / cordless phone but we have tried moving them both around and even positioned the phone further away as well as disconnecting the power to the phone base unit ( only have one ) and still the same issue when trying wireless on the super hub and also the same after adjusting different settings ie wireless channels ( 1, 6, 11 and auto ), dhcp time out, only having the main wireless on ( ie disabling the guest wireless network ).
Got to the point where I had to power the super hub off and power it back on just for the wireless settings to stick
4. Not sure ref WMM
5. Yes - Software VersionV5.5.2R30
6. Zyxel NBG-419N 300Mbps cable router (91-003-222003B) - dabs.com
Zyxel 419n cable router , how is that draytek ??
Looking at this one due to lower price but would like an airport extreme base station but did see some rumours ref one using 802.11ac but like any rumour not sure ref it being true and I physically connect the mac mini via ethernet, just phones and work laptop etc that use wi-fi

NBG4615 has Gigabit)?
I've heard of lots of people having problems with these hubs. Have you tried (if it's possible), to reduce the speed down to g only?
@ Arthur - NBG4615 looks much better thanks, no worries ref the mistake, I'm prone to them as well

Sounds like there's one place for it. In the bin!
I think you've exhausted everything you can possibly change. What's performance like plugging in a PC via Ethernet?
Yes, that should work fine in theory
