      Nice find. Saw Currys deal last week but bought this instead as cheaper and Currys are e nightmare to return.

      You can use any router for that, just put the Virgin Superhub into modem mode and connect the new router via ethernet.
      Is this 1 disc where your router would be and a second somewhere else in the home, this therefore only giving 1 additional disc in a location where the router is not?

      Looking at the whole home WiFi website one disc does need to be connected to the router.

      They also do 3 different price levels for this with the more expensive 'premium' versions offering a guest network and bedtime controls.

      Yes, you can. Just remember that you leave the virgin router set to continue broadcasting Wi-Fi, but you connect all your wireless devices to these discs then. If you turn off Wi-Fi on the virgin router it will cause problems.
      Hot hot hot but I’ll hold off for now as it seems like these are getting cheaper by the week ^_^
      We have internet with EE optic broadband - son moans constantly that it’s no good can these help boost the internet speed or stop it lagging as he says - thanks in advance

      Why?
      I've switched off both WiFi frequencies on my Virgin router and have zero issues.

      I had a lot of issues when I put the virgin hub to modem mode. Only one Ethernet port worked, then even that one wasn’t feeding data to the primary disc.
      The BT whole home set up is basically a repeater and not like other products which have routers too. The best advice I got was to leave it as it is, and get your devices to ‘forget’ the virgin hub.
      It took some figuring out but it’s great now. I guess you’ve been lucky and it’s worked out of the box.

      No it won't. It's actually fine either way if you broadcast the same SSIDs from the discs if you don't put one close to the router (but still wired to it).

      If you put a disc next to the router you should turn off the hub's WiFi.

      Modem mode is completely different. You need a separate router for that. The hub only enables one port in modem mode for that very reason.

      No, another router. There's plenty of reasons.

      Ah ok, like having a separate one for a dedicated VPN?
      No. The ISP router isn't very configurable. Using your own often allows for more control over your network.

      As an example, you might want different VLANs to separate different devices. The VM router doesn't give you that functionality.

      You may have enabled modem only mode.
      Don't do this, just disable 2.4ghz and 5ghz in wi-fi settings.

      All 3 price levels of the BT Whole Home Wi-Fi (Standard, Mini & Premium) all offer a Guest Network.

      The Mini also currently offers a Pause Now (All devices) feature. That said, they may add/improve features over the coming months.

      Not surprising at that price! Was 2 for the price of one (Add-on RRP £59.99)
      Once one is connected to the router you can then unplug it and move it to where you need it to be.It doesn't have to be sat next to the router it's only for the setup part it has to be plugged in.

      Hi,

      Unfortunately that is not correct. One disc must always be connected to the router via Ethernet.

      If you're adding a new disc (not from the same kit) then you would "pair" the new disc either via the WPS button or with an Ethernet cable. It's this Ethernet scenario that you can unplug the "new" disc and move... however there must still be one disc connected to the router via Ethernet.
