I live in a small 2 bedrooms semi detached house, and the wireless router is downstairs. My son who games on his XBox can't receive a signal strong enough for him to play his games. I'm constantly being disconnected from the wifi also. The maximum number of devices that could be connected at any one time are 4. VM have said the problem is the number of devices, and that the router is downstairs - they have said they will move it upstairs for £99!or I can have a booster for £3 per month. The internal walls are NOT brick, but are made from compacted material - so wouldn't have thought that was the problem? Has anyone experienced these problems? And are there any other solutions please.
Roger's suggestion is good - my lad uses a pair to connect his gaming consoles to the Hub downstairs and has no problems gaming at all. see the link for an explanation and some suggestions. There are some things you can do to improve the wifi too - what Hub model do you have (printed on the base sticker) and what VM package are you on?
