Re: VM WiFi booster disappointment - not working

Hi Je51cat,

 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the community.

 

I'm sorry to hear you're having issues with setting up your second booster, and I can appreciate you'd like to get them up and running as soon as possible. 

 

Are both of the boosters ones that have been provided by us? Have you been able to check our troubleshooting page here?

 

Thanks 

 

Melissa

Re: VM WiFi booster disappointment - not working

Hi Je51cat,

 

Thank you for coming back to us.

 

I am sorry to hear that you are unable to set up your 2nd booster.

 

Is the socket where you are putting the booster on the same wiring loop as the booster plugged into your router?

 

Kind regards

 

Paul.

Re: VM WiFi booster disappointment - not working

For the booster to work it uses the electric wiring, if the two sockets aren't connected the booster won't work. ^PDe

Hi Je51cat,

 

Thank you for coming back to me.

 

It sound like it may be faulty, I advise speaking to our faults team on 0345 454 1111 option 1 then option 3, who will be able to get this swapped for you if this is the case.

 

Kind regards

 

Paul.

Re: VM WiFi booster disappointment - not working

Hello Je51cat

I think we may need to get an engineer to come out. 

Before we do

Can you try pairing the second booster in the same room please see if that helps 

It may well be the Internal wiring that is on a different circuit
