Got these about 3 weeks ago for £99.99 and they work excellent. Very easy to set up.
Is this what's known as a mesh network?

Yes
Can I plug one away from router, e.g. into a homeplug as the "server" rather than at router? This way I can make do with 2 rather than having to have 3.
Yes you can as long as the "Master" disc has a wired connection to your router it should work fine.

Got my 2 and I am very pleased with them (pardon the pun)

What do these do exactly? What is a "whole home" wifi?

My normal house 3 bed detached is more than adequately covered by a normal router which is at the front of the house and reaches well down the back garden.
Great price! Well found OP! This makes it by far the best value mesh WiFi system at the moment

I also got this set about 2 weeks ago and it seems fast and stable and blankets our whole house with strong WiFi. I wanted 3 discs but the twin packs are much better value, so I got 2 twin packs and sold the spare disc on eBay which went for £68 (less fees). Happy times!
Anyone else getting "promo code" invalid error?

EDIT - First time customers only...

but then you wouldn't have wifi coverage near the router?
There was an App and firmware update 2 days ago, you can now set scedules, timers, and switch off wifi on selected devices and groups, very helpful when its the kids bedtime etc.

Our house had several WiFi dead spots which I had previously "solved" using PowerLine WiFi adapters, however because they had separate SSID's I had to manually keep switching devices as I moved around the house (plus it wasn't very stable). The BT whole home WiFi system is a mesh network where each disc basically broadcasts the same SSID and automatically switches connected devices over to another disc if the signal strength becomes stronger.

There's a few different makes that offer similar solutions but the BT offering offers excellent performance at a great price.

Sounds like your setup is spot on as it so you're lucky

OK thank you. I guess it depends on pipework, electrical cabling and insulation material.

As you can tell from the question I am about to ask, I am pretty ignorant about this....
why would I not have a signal near router? What happens to router signal?

You "should" turn off your router WiFi and just use the Whole Home.
Depending on where you put the disc you could lose WiFi close to the router.

If you wanted to place the master more centrally in the home with a powerline then this would be acceptable as you would keep signal in the standard areas.

the App is actually quite useful for positioning the additional disc too.

You know you could have changed the powerline Wifi ssid, password and channel as the same as your main router and it would have done the same thing. Just as long as there is a wireless overlap between your wireless router and powerline adapter, but in honesty a router as an access point or the above is better to extend your network and as long as your happy with what you have now then that is all that matters.

The cashback is 2%, not 7%, as it's an electrical item, and only on the pre-VAT price. Still, a good deal. Heat

you would switch the routers existing wifi signal off (or at the very least 'forget' the routers wifi on every device and don't connect to it again)

If you leave it on then your devices wont switch seamlessly between the routers wifi and the new Whole Home wifi

Your quite right, although to accomplish this I would have needed to replace the PowerLine adapter with one that didn't drop out its connection (and it was also 2.4GHz only - in hindsight not a great buy)!

Out of interest, with the setup you suggested would devices automatically switch over to the various access points? I've had experience before where a device would keep its affinity to an AP once connected regardless of signal strength, even if you're sitting right next to another one (this might have just been an Android thing).

Ah that sucks, maybe you had issues with electrical noise in the way that your house is wired. Was this a Wifi extender? I ended up turning the wifi extender off and just using it as a network port because when using powerline wifi extenders like these they can only upload and download one way and is reliant on the distance from your main router and if like mine its a fair distance in the end you end up getting drop outs and slower speeds.
I have my router on the bottom floor which connects to a powerline plug (master), then I have another powerline plug in my bedroom which is three floors up and plugged into that is an old router i had which I converted into an access point.

As long as the wifi signals overlap then it should switch to the strongest signal, It also depends on the device as some few wifi chips can be stubborn and refuse to switch, hence you have to manually quickly turn wifi off on the device and on and it will pick up the strongest signal. My mobile phone Android - Samsung Galaxy S5 automatically scans and picks up the strongest signal where ever I go in my house.

I had to send mine back had network but no wifi super hub 2 in modem mode going to a asus n66u rt router then the disc plug into the asus router
Two would only cover a small area? I think I'll need 4.

I have a 3 bed 70's semi with an extension on the back, wifi was very dodgy from a VM superhub (although it is behind the TV in the lounge) 2 of the these now give full house covereage, in the extension where there was previously poor wifi I now connect to the LAN at 500Mbit

I thought this too. With my original router I had a good signal on the ground floor, decent on the first and almost nothing on the second floor. I thought I would need at least 3 hubs however I settled with 2. One on the bottom beside the router and one on the top floor and now I've got full coverage throughout the whole house. Seamless wi-fi.
Now £69.99 at Very using a £20 discount code of LQ6FE on new credit accounts. Or without a new credit account, it's £79.99 using code £10 discount code of LXJM9.
