WiFi boosters and netgear

  • Can the virgin WiFi boosters be used alongside net gear power line adaptors , I don’t expect them to work together but along side each other

I had them running alongside some TP-Link ones a while back and they didn’t get along and interfered with each other

Re: WiFi boosters and netgear

A VM hub, wifi booster/s, and Netgear powerline adaptors.....all sounds like a bit of a kludge to try and make up for poor connectivity. 

You might want to consider buying a mesh wifi system which would normally sort out the wifi reach and quality, and using the ethernet ports on the secondary units rather than powerline adaptors?  But that's speculative on my part, because we don't know the property type and construction, what the connected devices and usage are, and what if any budget there is.

Re: WiFi boosters and netgear

Thanks for the replies , the problem is I have got various devices plugged in to the netgear adaptors around the house as I had already invested in them over the past couple of years such as my main pc hive hub hue hub etc my sons use Xbox and ps 4 in different rooms and stream quite a lot the construction of my walls is solid brick/block so it’s the wi fi that is the problem in certain parts of the house , virgin had sent me the boosters and I was hoping I could make use of them I used to have a. Netgear WiFi booster but my youngest son took that with him when he moved out (it didn’t work particularly well anyway)
