Hi. We have just upgraded our package so now have 350 and a new Super Hub 3.
When cable was first installed here over 20 years ago the installation was done in the loft landing as this is where the computer was, so this at the time made sense.
This is an old brick house, so because of this a while back I purchased a Devolo 1200+ wifi ac adapter which had been working well as it has 2 ethernet ports which are plugged into the TV and V6 box downstairs. Now not long after upgrading to the Super Hub 3 I was having some issues with the Devolo which I spent a long time yesterday sorting out.
I liked the Devolo as the 2 ethernet ports were useful, but they also claim "range+ Technology is taking advantage of all three wires in the electric mains circuit at the same time for even more performance and longer range" and they are meant to be a mesh system too.
Now while the Devolo wasn't working yesterday I tried out the Virgin Connect app, which was a bit of a nightmare to get working, eventually it did and it found a blackspot downstairs with the option about the booster pods, I checked the rest of the house though and didn't go ahead. Now on going back to the room it does pick up a weak signal, but the only option on the app is to let it change some Super Hub settings and try again...not much difference and no option to order some booster pods.
Now we are on a Volt bundle, so I believe that I should be able to get some booster pods with no charge, but I cant see where or how. I am also wondering if they will be any better than the old Devolo that I have or they just going to repeat an already bad signal. If I can get some then I am wondering if I should set them up and turn off the wifi on the Devolo and just use the ethernet for the TV and V6.
Thanks for any advice or help
On a volt bundle where to get some booster pods when the app isn't offering them?
Are they any good or just repeat a bad signal/no better than an old powerline/wifi system?
