Is there a way to find out if the boosters are actually working? they don't seem to be making a great difference if they do but the only one which appears on the Virgin app is the one connected to the Hub. The bigger one doesn't.
With the constant ‘Somethings Not Right’ error message on the Virgin Connect App how do I know if my booster is working? I’ve connected to the settings page online and although it shows the power line is connected via Ethernet it does not show which devices are connected to the booster (like the app does when working correctly).
After successfully setting up my booster I still got an exclamation mark on the booster icon in the virgin app. I clicked on it and it repeated the process of copying my routers details. To check things out i used an app on my android phone called wifi analyzer from Olgor.com.
If your booster is working it will show 2 separate signals , one from the hub and one from the booster , even they both have the same ssid's
as they are customer LAN side mac addresses and not the modem mac it not really a risk.
The risk is (was) cloning mac addresses of modems. Lan side devices are no risk at all. they can be seen from a simple packet capture of wifi even without the wifi password or connecting to the network if in range
