BT Whole Home WiFi System - Twin Pack back to £89.99 at Currys PC World

89
Found 17th Dec 2017Edited by:"R.O.N.N.I.E"
Twin pack has been at this price before but went up to £150 after Black Friday. Back to £99 like BT shop, amazon and very at the moment so sharing as others like me may find local Currys PC World more convenient.

31 Dec update (thanks Spudboy) now £89

buy 2 two packs and have a 4 pack for less than the cost of a 3 pack


That's the classic HUKD approach - buy one extra that you totally didn't need, but at least it's a saving!!

Got these Black Friday, seem to work well.
Recent firmware upgrade makes these even better
How many of these can you have connected together?
So do these just duplicate the signal from the router? If someone has these, can they confirm how much their ping has been affected?
This this create a seamless wifi mesh network? The deal seems cheap as other mesh network solutions cost £150+ but I'm sceptical that a BT solution could be best in class so do have a look around at competing product features.
Sorry to ask but will these work with Talktalk fibre?
Many thanks for any help

The best practice is you turn of your WiFi on your router, all these do is replicate your WiFi signal, but furthe

The 3 pack is £150+.
Works incredibly well.
Wi-Fi never been so good in terms of reliable coverage in my house that is built out of concrete inner walls.
Anyone aware of a decent three disk pack?

Two disks isn't much use for a slightly large home - but the three disks packs cost almost as much as 2 twin packs..!

I've had these and the Linksys WHW0303-UK, the Linksys have better coverage on a like-for-like basis. Linksys are a bit more (RRP £500 for 3 units), but you can get them on sale for £300-£350 sometimes.

"A bit more" ~ minimum 50% more?!

A total of 6 Discs.
how does this compare to google wifi?
Ubiquity is better, but you need to run cabling.
Just use another router to extend, that's got a wan input, much cheaper
Ordered a pack, now need to work out what to do for the third bit - router is in one corner of the house, sadly.

Purchased this instead of a new router, though.
Can you daisy chain these (if you have three or more) or do they need to connect back to a main hub one? - my house is long and narrow

Ideally yes you should run cabling for UniFi AP's, they do however support wireless uplinks so cabling is not mandatory.

You can only see upto 4 on the app, pretty solid signal throughout our 1930 thick walled house, easy to set up, though be wary if you have sky q, mini boxes, they are ab it hit and miss, as sky uses mesh, and they seem to interfere with them ,
I've got the TP Link deco and I'm not that impressed so far.. far to many internet blips!
Ubiquiti is better and cheaper. Or even better - buy used enterprise grade stuff from ebay


You're just asking for problems by using WiFi repeaters
These aren't traditional repeaters though, they're using mesh technology
Looks exactly like a pair of 32783612-CX2mU.jpg
Installed these yesterday (Amazon same price). Too soon to say yet for certain but looking very positive so far with signal much stronger in the lounge than before when compared to sky, bt, linksys and netgear routers (yes, I've tried them all!!). They hand-off nicely as I walk around the house.

Previously tried a regular repeater but these seem more consistent.

BT have even done a good job on the app.

£99 is a great price if they continue working as they have been. Second disk showing a weak signal warning but easily manages to stream a 4K HDR stream without glitches.

Tried this but always had the problem of it staying on the router with weaker signal when moving across the house. Do you have a solution for this or is it just something you put up with?
sent these back. signal from one was worse than my current access point. Think I would of needed 3 to replace the old access point.

Replaced with a Ubiquiti Long Range. Much better signal and POE as well.
for anyone that wants to wall mount. Use a knife to remove the front cover. 5 clips I think. You can then unscrew the stand. Was going to do this if I kept them.
Do these have the same issue as other BT routers I wonder - i.e. firmware upgrades only get applied if you have BT broadband? My homehub 6 (Smart Hub) will never receive any firmware updates because I don't have BT Broadband. I use the hub as an Access Point with another ISP.

For iPhone users you can see all six (four in page 1 and two in page 2). This was Available on the update before the latest one. I think Android is still limited to four. You can always fall back to the web interface.

You can disable the Sky Mesh like I've done (I'm using my own router with Sky fibre)

Interesting, though does mean I have to buy a new router rather than using the sky one.
These are great, we bought 3 packs from Amazon during black Friday.
3 discs are set up at my in laws, 3 at ours.
Really easy to set up and add the additional disc from the 3rd pack.
At least one disc should be cabled to the router.

The two--unit version for Linksys is at £175 on Amazon at the moment. I've used Netgear Orbi with good success and I wonder if Linksys would be as good...
