It does seem to have done the trick, Simon. Thanks.

I suspect that it may be kit-specific.  Wife and I both have Dell Inspiron laptops with Qualcomm QCA9377 802.11ac Wireless Adapters.  Our router is an IDNet supplied Billion 8800AXL R2.  Both of our laptops are losing IPv6 connectivity through WiFi although the router is holding IPv6 connectivity with the WAN.

Today I dug out an old Realtek WiFi dongle (Realtek 8811CU Wireless LAN 802.11ac USB NIC), plugged this into my machine and disabled the supplied Adapter.  Since then wife's laptop has continued to drop IPv6 connectivity but mine has remained up for the last 10 hours.

That seems to point to a problem in the interface between the router and adapter.  If anyone has any ideas about any settings I can tweak to make the router and adapter play nicely together I would be grateful to hear them.

I wish I had posted here before investing £60 in a useless new powerline with wifi.  I did as you suggested and downloaded the android app, which showed that the signal behind the TV is awful, whereas it's great just in front.  I followed your lead and bought a metre-long HDMI extender for under £3 and plugged it in this morning.  Result:  very good wifi signal to the Firestick and download speeds of 35 Mbps - thank you so much!

Great news - glad you got it sorted!  :)

In the last 3 days the up speed has returned to the speed under Eclipse on tests a different times of the day. No sign of changes on the sync speed so why this has now changed I have no idea.

Good to hear things are running better.

As an adjunct to the issues I was having with my NOW TV box it looks as though the 6 year old Devolo 500 repeater has actually good bad. I swapped it out, but if I use the original elsewhere then my wife gets all sorts of problems with her laptop connection. Take the original away and all seems good.  :dunno:

Thanks to all of you for your helpful posts.  I did try the firestick on both 2.4 and 5Ghz, but it made no difference - maybe bwecause my router is only 2.4.

Anyway, since my last post, I've been using the nearly 10-year-old Netgear powerline for my TV's ethernet connection and relying on unboosted wifi for the firestick, without a problem. I did wonder about getting the firestick ethernet connector if needed, so it's useful to know it does work.  I've also hooked the firestick wore up so it's further from the TV - I'll keep an extender cable in mind and also download that very useful-sounding app.  Thanks again.

I've done that now in the Dashboard so we'll see if that sorts it out.
