These are rubbish. Returned them.


I wondered how long it would take you to post. I think this must be the 3rd whole home deal that you have attempted to trash and once again your the only person complaining which says it all!

I’ve got two of these discs which do the job well. This is a good deal.
I second that, I bought these from JL at this price a few weeks ago, they are dead easy to set up and have expanded the wifi across our house perfectly. Highly recommend them.
Can't find online
Heat added great price
Our Wi-Fi is great in the house, but rubbish once you get into the garden. From those that have used this kit, is it any better that a normal extender for outside Wi-Fi use? Thanks

Absolutely brilliant. Have 4 linked and get perfect full strength internet all through my house and garden. Have used the old type extenders before which were okay but these are in a different League. Very easy to set up. A no brainer if you are able to get them at this price!!

After spending years messing about with extenders, adding access points and even making a Pringles can antenna I can firmly day these are the solution to your WiFi woes. Zero management required when you're up and running.

Comparing these to normal extenders is night and day.

In the past I have used boosters, repeaters, access points, powerline adapters, you name it but all of them are cave men tools compared to these mesh wifi discs.

I have always struggled with poor WiFi in the home. Even positioning the router in a variety of sensible locations would mean somewhere would suffer even if in just the next room, figure that one out.
These aren't trash ISP routers either. I've tried various high end routers including recently the latest AC87U with Merlin FW.

Buy these now and leave poor signal issues in the past. I can't recommend them highly enough.

The first disc you position next to your router with the Ethernet linking the two, the second disc you place somewhere else in the house and the app can advise of best location.
I'm currently with BT For my intrnet but I like to switch every year for better prices. Will these still work if i switch to Sky or another provider? Taa folks.
Can you paint these to match the walls?

Do you understand what an access point is
These are rubbish. Returned them.
These are brilliant, i get 80mb in a room where i couldnt even get 2mb before. No issues 6 months using them
I had some WiFi extenders before, and tried homeplug WiFi plugs too. I don’t know much about this stuff. I set them all up with same SSID and password and all my devices connected fine and had good range but although they were same SSID it still seemed to operate as 2 networks. All my sonos kit connected to the extender would work fine but if my phone was connected to the original router broadcast (despite it having the same SSID) it couldn’t see any device on the extended network meaning I couldn’t use my phone app to control those sonos speakers. Once I sat in the same room the phone app would work fine as my phone was then connected to the same extended signal. This was the only time I noticed any difference and after troubleshooting with sonos they said there was no way round it. I bought these BT discs and now everything works fine and it doesn’t matter what disc I am connected to it all just works.
BT Business sell them for that as well if you ask them.
How does this compare to BT complete WiFi? You get a new hub with a disc, then 2 more free discs if you tell them coverage isn't good enough. Cant see price but think it was about £100 bt.com/broadband/complete-wifi

Similar but not the same. The discs aren't compatible. You don't own the discs with Complete WiFi. You don't need as many discs with Complete Wifi as the first one doesn't need to be next to your router.

Whole Home Wifi would be suitable if you expect to change provider or use a non-BT router.
Any good for playing online games when on the extended WiFi? Won't get drop out or lag spikes?
I can vouch for these all day long!

I have one upstairs, one downstairs in the living room and one in the kitchen and the entire house is cover from the cellar to the garden.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone having wifi signal issues, its very simple to setup and the coverage is brilliant.
Yep these are generally great. Have had issues in the past with duff firmware updates, but think they've got wise to that now.

I have one in the garden in a water proof housing, get 50Mbps in my man cave 40m away from house. 😁

The item isn't crap your house is crap! Don't moan just because your walls are too thick you've trashed both wholehome and Google WiFi threads. It's not our fault you chose to have a crap house.

No experience with Google WiFi but I know they have AC1200 where as wholehome have AC2600.
Will there be interference problems if you leave the router's own WiFi on at the same time as using these?

On my God yes I am how about that. The point is your house is the problem not the product. Also people with older houses than yours have said in previous threads that these work well for them. So it is you that has the problem not the product, just face it.

BT recommend you turn your routers WiFi off so devices don't try to connect to it instead of the wholehome discs.

They can do either wireless or wired backhaul.

So you need to connect at least one using ethernet cable to your router/switch. The rest can then connect wirelessly to that one for wireless backhaul. Of course if possible it would be better to connect them all to the network physically. The ability to have wired backhaul is one of the features I like about these, some other solutions only offer wireless backhaul.

I'm sorry but your the 2 year old who moans on every single deal regarding these and is always the only one complaining. The majority of opinion is they are good so deal with it and move on.
