Can I Buy 2nd hand WiFi booster and plug in


I can not get through to virgin at all. Tried for hours. Can’t  use the connect app either. 
I really need WiFi signal booster . As no signal I upstate back bedrooms and need to work up there. I have hub 3 Downstairs. Question- can I buy a virgin booster from say eBay and just plug it in and it will work? Or do I still have to call virgin to It set up

Buy a booster or extender that isn’t a virgin one. 

A. Because they’re not great and B. They’re property of virgin so anyone selling them on eBay is doing so illegally. 

Or better yet get a better router or a mesh system.
