Hi I’ve got SH3 and boosters as wifi signal was poor. I got a good deal on nighthawk R8000 . Can I use the Virgin booster with the nighthawk? Also I’m on the 5g channel so does the boosters automatically know this??
If you have a decent router there’s no need for boosters.

I have an R8000 with my shub3 in modem mode. I have a large house and my R8000 doesn't quite reliably reach the far corners.
Ensure your router is in a central location and away from any metal beams or central heating pipes. "Boosters" and "repeaters" will never provide 100% speed, instead try a WAP, a wireless access point. Dual band WAPs will provide 100% speed but the downside is you need to feed a cable to wherever you place the WAP. I use a dual band TP-Link WAP with my R8000 to get a reliable full speed wifi throughout the house.
