Ok tonight I have turned off the 2.4ghz setting. I have a much better signal on my mobile now so I will give that a try and see how I get on.
Done a speed test on my phone in the bedroom getting 90mpbs
done it in my computer room (connected straight to router) getting 150mbps I am happy with that as long a song my pc stays on the router I don’t care. Is there a way I can tell the PC NOT to go onto the booster I think the router is closer than the booster anyway but just want to make sure.
The wifi boosters are not great. I hard wired mine to simply turn them into a wireless repeater. Basically i connect a network cable from the hub to the port on the wireless powerline, no need to use the other adapter. So its getting full speed to the wireless adapter and then can in theory pump that out. I have a tp link 1200 wireless powerline that i get the full 500mb wirelessly on my 500mb connection but the virgin netgear ones i get 300 to 400mb and often much less. I am in a 3 bed small house and i have to put wireless powerlines run this way in all rooms as the superhub 3's wireless coverage is so bad.
Hi all, what a great resource this is. Okay, so as many of you on here have said I too received a pair of WiFi boosters for the back of my house. I have a 500mbps connection and in the back bedroom I’m getting around 10mbps. It’s not a particularly large house, just a three bed semi and in that back bedroom we are using a tplink network plug so that my son can at least play his PlayStation via Ethernet. So having installed the booster today I was really disappointed by the speeds, less than 5mbps! I kept the boosters original name so I could be sure that I was testing the right connection. I will try a different plug socket as mentioned on this forum, but it was sold to me as giving us the same or very close to the connection speed we have right next to the router. Did anyone on here actually get this sorted using the boosters to a decent speed in the end???
You’ll struggle to get decent speeds on a powerline extender.
Booster is the wrong word to use.
