I bought the range extender to boost the signal from my wi-fi hub (a Virgin media hub 3.0) but I can't seem to connect it to any devices which are all Apple products - a Mac, iphone and ipad.  Is the AC750 suitable to work with Apple devices?

Asked by: Gareth
Yes this should be suitable for any device.

Hi I wanted to use this to improve the signal on a boat in a Marina.  The Marina has WIFI Hotspots but I have black spots in my boat.  Can I use this to connect to the Marina Hotspot and boost my signal ?  The marina WIFI has a logon page with a password

Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee full compatibility for this item in your intended application, as it is not specified how close the boat will be to the said WiFi signal . I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Does this range extender have a web interface, to allow access from any browser on any system? Netgear routers do this. I only have Linux systems.

I Have a sky router but I want to extend the range of my wifi. Would this unit be able to do that and upto how many meters?

Asked by: Ali Jussab
Yes, this would work in your intended use however I could not advise how many meters as this would depend on the surroundings of the device, such as interference from other electronic devices and walls etc.
