Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install - very simple "plug and play" plus one press of a button. Still early days, but no issues. Much better than BT 500 version I previously used which would lose connection often requiring a power down and power up to resolve.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work I have tried this product in every possible position in my house with no effect. I have a BT hub and have varied the distance from the hub from 1 to about 15 metres but it does not make contact even using WPS.

Does the extender give out the same name and password as the main Wi-Fi router?

Asked by: KevinW
Yes once it is connected up to your router it will just repeat the signal you get from your router.

 I have very thick internal walls. My virgin media Router does not reach my furthest room. Best solution to this please?

Asked by: Allan
If Wi-Fi transmit is unfeasible due to the construction of the property then the best solution would be Powerline devices with Wi-Fi transmit, these would then create Wi-Fi "HOTSPOTS" wherever you place them. a couple of these kits would give you 4 Wi-Fi transmit units These can be placed at locations throughout the property to give maximum Wi-Fi coverage.

I have a log cabin in my garden and my internet signal cut off just outside it. Would this make the signal strong enough to gain a signal inside? It’s about 80 m away from Router.

Hi - this seemed to work fine with my BT SamrtHub 5. Any reason why it wouldn't be compatible with the new BT Smarthub?

Asked by: Simoni

Can the Ethernet port be used to extended the signal using a hard wired cat5 connection? The room where I want wifi is out of range of router (distance and brick walls) so I have Installed a cable from one side of my house to the other.

Asked by: Sev70
No, I am sorry but this will not be suitable. We would recommend the item linked below though as this would be ideal, and would just create a new wireless network using the wire you have run:

We have a flat in Prague, and we use a neighbour's secure wi-fi. However, whilst the signal is strong in half of the flat, the area furthest away has a very weak signal. What can I use to boost the signal in the flat? And would it be compatible in Prague?

Asked by: Peter
On the assumption that you are using the neighbours Wi-Fi with their permission then you could just use a Wi-Fi signal booster. Ideally you should source a product in the country you intend to use it as it will be fitted with the correct kind of plug fitting for that location.

It says supplied with Ethernet cable. What is that for? As I understood this unit plugs in to wall socket some room/s away?

Asked by: Jhc1
The unit is fitted with an Ethernet port, to allow the connection of devices without wireless capability and allowing them to use this plug as a wireless access point.
