Re: WiFi booster

Hi there,

Ok new boosters,

Try to keep them separate so do not clone the modem,you have the small 1 plugged now wait 5 mins get the bigg booster in the same room wait 5 mins hold the sync button on big booster approx 5-10 secs.wait.

Once paired place at plug socket on landing area NEVER IN A WI DEAD SPOT.

 

you can also broaden your wifi range.

192.168.0.1 on Google page,

Enter the 8 numbers on base of modem,

Then go to advanced settings wireless,

At the bottom disable smart wifi,

Change 5g to manual 20/40/80  and channel 44,

Change 2g to manual 20/40 channel 11.

Hope this helps
