Re: wireless booster

Don't see why not might need to resync if off for awhile

What do you mean? A Wireless booster needs to be paired with a companion Booster that's connected to the Hub. It won't work by itself.

Re: wireless booster

Will the wireless booster connect directly to the hub once I've completed the set up sequence ??.or it will mean more wires and cables all around the hub .I HATE CABLES

The idea of Boosters is that they use your home power wiring to avoid trailing cable around the home. So you place once in a power socket near your Hub 3 and connect it via Ethernet to your Hub. The other one goes wherever you need the network extension.

But you need to have at least the two for them to work.

The Boosters are pass through though - so you don't lose a power socket:
