Multiple Extenders - same Hub

How do I pair two extenders to the same Hub at the same time.  How do I know which one is which if the Hub ID is copied?

VM extenders and SuperHub4

Yes. But you’d be better off getting your own better extenders or a mesh system.

Re: Multiple Extenders - same Hub

Please explain more fully.

Are you saying that it can be done? What do you mean by "better extenders" and what is a "Mesh" system?

Yes it can be done.

What extenders do you have at the moment?

Re: Multiple Extenders - same Hub

I have the ones that VM provided.

I had been using them with the Hub 3 and they showed up as VMP******.  I have since had the Hub 4 installed but the extenders don't show up separately.  I don't know if that is because Have cloned the network name (or at least think that I have)?. They must be working though as I can turn the Wi-Fi off and they work via ethernet?  I just don't know where I am with them as they are providing 75Mb of an incoming 1060Mb signal?

Re: Multiple Extenders - same Hub

75Mbps is about right.

A. They’re cheap plugs and 

B. They’re powerline technology which relies on decent electrical wiring and ring mains etc.

Hence why I said some better extenders or a mesh system you purchase yourself would (always) be better.

Mesh system: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Best-Sellers-Computers-Accessories-Whole-Home-Mesh-Wi-Fi-Systems/zgbs/compu...

I would always go for a mesh system over an extender. But if you do go with an extender I would take this:
