WiFi Booster Dropping off Network

Hi all,

I have a Virgin supplied WiFi booster. It keeps dropping off the network. The router is working, so if I go and stand next to the router I get WiFi. If I connect to the booster I get 4 bars but no actual WiFi. If I turn the router off and on, the booster comes back on line - then drops again.

I have a hub 3.0

Has anyone else experienced this? Any fixes?

Thanks

Have you separated out the 2.4 and 5Ghz SSID's ?

Thanks for replying Kippies.

But I don't know what that means or how I would check.

Any tips would be gratefully accepted

Get a look at this thread, especially BenMCR's advice, should keep you right. If not, post again and we will take you through the process

Thanks again. Just so I am clear, is this to prevent the boosters dropping? Or to help the router cover more distance?
