WiFi booster

Have set up booster with ease but now have a noise like a ticking motor coming from my PC. Noise is stopped with disconnection of the small booster's ethernet cable, which is clearly not very helpful!

Re: WiFi booster

Does it make the noise if you wire direct to the hub?

Re: WiFi booster

Closer assessment indicated that the noise is actually coming from the speaker (?sub-woofer). Noise is there when the mini booster (Virgin supplied) is connected by ethernet cable to the Hub (which it needs to be). The noise stopped on disconnecting the booster ethernet cable but then that means no boosting happening!

Re: WiFi booster

Try a different ethernet cable between Booster and PC.
