Intelligent wifi speeds

I recently plugged in my wifi pod and I’m barely getting 10mg speeds. Can I use the pods with the boosters I already have?

The 'Pods' are designed to sit half way between the HUB and the area that requires wireless coverage.

Unlike boosters that use your power line, then 'Boost' the wired connection to wireless, the pods themselves need good coverage from the HUB.

If you've put the pods where your boosters were they won't work effectively.

Not surprised 🙄

They should work with existing boosters yes.

Re: Intelligent wifi speeds

Hi @Missy80 

Sorry for any confusion here, we would recommend using the boosters and pods separately.

Finding the right location in the home for the pod is a bit of trial and error so if you find after trying different locations in the home means there is no improvement at that point you can revert back to using the boosters.

Thanks

Nathan
