Wifi boosters

Hi there

I've had boosters in my house for a while and they worked....however today I had to change the ethernet cable and now they do not work which renders most of my home WiFiless.....not pleased.

 

Any suggestions?  Thanks

Lene

Re: Wifi boosters

Did VM supply the boosters or are they 3rd party?

What ethernet cable did you swap?  Was it the cable from the Hub to the first booster?

Re: Wifi boosters

Could be a cable fault. You can test a cable by plugging both ends into your hub, the LEDs should flash on both sockets.
