Hi Natalie, if you’re getting good speed on a wired connection and suffer from poor wifi speed and range you would probably be better of investing in a decent third party router, that way you can put the Virgin Hub into modem mode and let the router deal with all the traffic. This would give you better wi-fi coverage. There are loads of options from Asus, TP Link etc and seeing as the VM Hubs are well known for their lack of wi-fi capabilities you would be better of using your own equipment. I know it's a case of having to spend money that you shouldn't have to, but it really is worth it and gives you a better all round stable internet experience. My advise would be to avoid cheap routers as they are very problematic and tend to be more hassle than they are worth, usually something around the £100+ mark or cheaper if you get a good deal on the likes of Amazon.

Another option is to get the wifi pods from Virgin to extend the range of your wifi but seeing as you pay for these monthly it might be better to invest the money on your own equipment, that way you always have it no matter what internet service provider you use in the future 🙂

Re: WiFi pods

Hi @Daznat1981

 

Welcome to the forum page and thanks for posting this on here. 

We can certainly look into this for you but just need you to expand on what you need help with. 

 

We would also just need to ask a couple questions first so we can look into this, but if you could just give us a brief description of what we can help with, that would be fab. 

 

Thanks

Re: WiFi pods

I doubt a pod will help.

Look at getting a proper mesh system instead.
