Virgin WiFi booster

Don't understand do the WiFi boosters require logging in to a device separately as they come up on a WiFi search as a stand alone connection I thought that they boost your existing WiFi hub?

Re: Virgin WiFi booster

They extend the WiFi once set up properly, if you just plug them in they have a separate network.

 

Hold the WPS button in the big booster for 7 flashes then press WPS on the hub for a few seconds to pair.

 

Once paired you might have to pull out the little part and put back in again if it says no IP address

Re: Virgin WiFi booster

Thanks for the reply,

But I've lan connected the smaller booster device to the hub then plugged in the bigger one in a wall socket close by, once the sync is complete and the white spots remain on both, threre is still another WiFi connection available being the booster on the WiFi connection search

Re: Virgin WiFi booster

Hi @Mark2238

 

Welcome back to our Community Help Forum 🙂

 

Thank you for your post regarding the WiFi that you are getting from your Boosters.

 

If the Boosters are connected properly, they should only show the SSID from the Hub not the booster network as well. Is the booster network still showing now?

 

Please do let me know,

 

Thanks,

 

Serena
