The following FAQ's page should explain everything. Ignore the icon link for Wifi boosters help.
The new wifi pod should be set up close to your hub, or at a midpoint where your signal is bad,
It doesn't need connecting to the hub via ethernet. You can use the two ethernet ports to connect other equipment or another VM wifi pod.
You can't use the TP Link plugs with the VM pods.
With the VM pod(s) you should be aware of the following requirements for the pods to work with the Hubs.
The Hub must be in 'Router Mode' and not have been changed to 'Modem Mode'
Channel Optimisation must be left on
The SSIDs must be the same and broadcast enabled
The SSID must be password protected
The Passphrases of the SSIDs must match
As long as all of the above points are all met then the Pods will automatically connect to your Hub's WiFi and begin broadcasting. The wireless details from the Pods will be the same as the Hub's details, so no additional steps are required to connect up the devices in the home.
