    Great price and ideal if you just want need to boost wifi to a particular spot in your house, however, these BG versions don't include powerline technology. These are literally just a standard wall socket with a usb port and a built-in wifi extender (its wifi will be treat as a separate wifi network/ssid). Also worth noting BG recommend you don't fit more than one of these in your house. In other words you cant install these throughout your property to create a wifi-mesh.

    There's another manufacture (forget who) that make a similar socket which also incorporates powerline and wifi. With these sockets you can fit them around your house so you have both ethernet and wifi in every room. They're a lot more expensive.

    another manufacture , clue please.

    802.11bgn - so 2008

    Wifi extender itself is a bad idea.
    Outdated Wifi extender is horrible idea.
    Avatar
    Agreed, after you've pointed out its 802.11bgn, i've just notice those sockets are using insecure/old WPS!

    Also bear in mind I believe these are only 2.4ghz - was looking at them previously.

    @umeandus you have to scroll down the page and then there's the option to check store stock.

    great idea lets put WiFi in a metal box in a wall should get a great Signal

    Or a drywall box, which shouldn't be metal

    Word of warning. I was refitting my kitchen and had had a very old school electrician complete the electrical work. I initially purchase BG switches. He was very open and honest that the quality was terrible. I paid a premium for Sheneider Lisse (I think that’s the spelling). Most of the cost is in the fitting - go for the better brand.

    WiFi extenders are junk. Avoid any .. get a powerline system or mesh

    WiFi will be crap on this and only repeat, dreadful solution

    I picked up one for the USB socket, rather than the Wifi aspect. Half the price of uglier ones (and that's a task), so all's well..

    Really useful information from @preecyuk2000 and @HaraldBB so thank you for that. Looks like it's not possible to create some kind of cheapo mesh.

    Got 1 recently unable to make it work, the website provide to login is not reachable on internet browser through my broadband provider. Wonder if anyone got a solution?

    I read somewhere that if a lower rated wifi extender is introduced into a higher rated mesh system, that all the higher rate system is reduced to the level off the lower rate introduced. Is that correct?
    Avatar
    No but it makes the lower rated wifi not faster so all devices running of the lower rated one will be slow, its like a bottle neck.

    Would like to know how to put wifi in my garden shed. Run a cat5 to it and then stick an extender on it?
    Avatar
    That would work, or get a mesh system and place one of the devices in the house at a point closest to the shed. It obviously depends how far your shed is from your main property.
