Will this range extender be able to reach where my current router can't?
BT's Dual-Band Wi-Fi Extender 610 allows you to extend the range of your wireless broadband, meaning dead zones are a thing of the past. As this range extender is universally compatible it will be able to extend the range of any Wi-Fi router. The intelligent signal indicator lights will help you find the best location of optimal W-Fi coverage by the signal strength.

What speed will I be able to achieve?
The AC Wi-Fi technology mode produces 300Mbps on 2.4GHz and 300Mpbs on 5GHz which totals 600Mbps Wi-Fi speeds. The high speed mode can maximize the overall performance by combining the bandwidth of both the 5GHz and 2.4GHz channels to create a lightning-fast connection. The one gigabit Ethernet port provides you with gigabit speed for your fast and stable wired connection.

How can I set up the BT Dual-Band Wi-Fi Range Extender?
The Dual-Band Wi-Fi Extender 610 is easy to use. Simply plug into your wall socket and link with your router and you are ready to enjoy an extended wireless broadband experience.

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.

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: http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/linksys-x2000-single-band-n300-wireless-cable-router-a94ku

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.
