WiFi booster

Hello all. I have received the WIFI boosters as we have poor coverage upstairs. It looks like a powerline kit. 

We already have a powerline system in place (TP-Link TL-PA9020PKIT ). I cannot pair the virgin ones to my TP ones. 

Should I be able to or are they not compatible? 

The TP link ones are very fast and are used to stream video around the house. 

Can I set up the virgin ones to pair to the TP set, do I have to set up the virgin ones as well as the TP link ones or can I only have one set working?

 

Thanks

Re: WiFi booster

Hello

The powerlines that VM have suppied use a different technology than the TP Link ones, the VM wireless ones use G.Hn where the TP Link use HomePlug and are not compatible with each other, see https://www.virginmedia.com/help/virgin-media-booster-troubleshooting

Re: WiFi booster

Thanks Mike. Have been trying to set up. New booster keeps giving IP error? Think I'll reset it all tomorrow and have another bash.
