Good price. I have it and am very happy except missus Vpn with work doesn't seem to work through it. Voted hot.

BT advertise that bloke hanging on to the helicopter saying how great their hub is, yet you need a booster, ok, I get it.
I have a long thin house with stone walls and due to the laws of physics, no legal consumer router will get more than one room away. With this, it will daisy chain covering a whole lot more than a single router and more reliable than the router plus Powerline WiFi adapters that I was using. I could still do with an extra disc though (also discounted - thanks OP).
Not sure why this is being voted cold? Its the cheapest way I can see that any new true "mesh" three disk system can be bought today.
Excellent price. 10% off extra disc plus 15% discount brings a four-disc pack to around £231 for those who want it. You can set up a mesh network of up to 6 discs if you want.

I have this and it's superb - current firmware seems stable and reliable and we have our full fibre speeds all over a 4-bed house and garden office. Was using Powerlines with routers set up as repeaters before and this is far better; devices seem to switch effortlessly to the strongest signal without any issues. Much cheaper than the current Google/Netgear/Linksys offerings also.

It's a shame it's so expensive but the thing is that it actually works and it gets wifi to the previously dead spots in the house.

I could do with another disk but tbh can't afford another at the moment.

Fantastic piece of technology that actually does what it says.

From what I read it tries to create its own wifi network rather than extend the current one so you have 2 networks running for your devices is this correct ? does this cause an issue ?
The advice is that you connect this to one of the network ports on the back of your current wireless router and use these discs for your WiFi, it recommends that once connected, you disable the WiFi from your old router to avoid wireless congestion with the new system.
Zameen

I have the original router's network running as a back up, and then use the whole home as another network.

I connect the laptop, streaming devices, phone, iPad etc to wholehome as the preferred network but if it's playing up I can check whether it's the connection by using the netgear router network.
Usually if there's a problem it's due to my crappy phone line.
Yes, it creates a new network. I have disabled the wireless radios on my HomeHub; however, you could just leave it running as a 'guest' network or as a backup like above. Just be sure to give them different names (SSIDs) and passwords.
