Same price at Very


Very is like the worst company in the UK, sign up and credit companies see you as high risk and very wants to improve its credit image so it will do a score on you regardless - hoping to get credit worthy customers

are these better than the google ones?


The Google alternative is:-
More expensive
Has no wired backhaul
Is owned by Google.
Looks awful
Can’t be wall mounted
Google’s attention span for hardware products is normally short.

I looked an hour ago and it was £99.99! Glad I didn't buy.
you're welcome. I actually bought them from currys at this price a while back and was waiting to get them at the same price again. I have been very impressed with them.

I bought them 2 days ago for my in laws and I'm really impressed. It integrates pretty seamlessly with their BTHub6 and so far it's offering excellent coverage. The worst case part is updating all the WiFi devices
Can I buy 2 of these and use 4 of the systems on total, or do I need to buy the 3/4 pack?

buying two twins is the same as buying a 4 pack. The disks are interchangable.

If you mean can you buy two packs and they’ll all work together, then yes
Bummer - also paid £99 from Argos this week but haven't collected yet. Wonder if I can still cancel it... although I paid with vouchers.

After setting up, switch off the WiFi on the router, then go into the utility for these and rename the network to the original WiFi on the router and set same password as was on router then all devices should connect okay. At this stage I had to reboot my router
I got 2 of these couple of days ago so could have saved a further £20. But that is life. Can't grumble.
Tempted to get 2 more now but that would fry my family's brain with WiFi signal.

Oh bugger! Wish I'd thougt of that! No biggy though, only a few phones left now and its done. Tempted to buy some for our house instead of the Deco M5

Is that definitely true? On the BT website a twin pack is £99 but a 4 pack is £258. If what you’re saying is correct then BT have a very odd pricing structure!
Can anybody please tell me how many SSIDs you can have and are they isolated from each other? I like to have at least 3 i.e. normal, guest and IOT. Thanks.

Twin pack is normally £149.99 with triple commonly £199.99
I got 2 twin packs a while ago and have been v impressed, I did have some issues originally but a full reset and set up with new SSID and pw seemed to resolve it. I get around 135Mb to 175Mb in different areas of the house from a 200Mb connection (I get about 185 on a wired link)

I think is only 1 plus guest, it does have a functionality to group devices together. Separate IoT network is a good idea.

Certainly true, you can buy 2 twin packs and add them all together in the BT whole home app.
ordered, thanks

What do you mean? Password changed? Also does anyone know if the ip address changes
bought these at £99 offer the other day - they work great and using the wifi now - much better than the old TP link extender - easy to amend SSID and passwords etc
Does one of these need to be hardwired to the router
Genuine question - why this and not two of these: argos.co.uk/pro…810

Yes

Just one of them, by the look of it. The others then connect to the first wirelessly. Not sure if you could hard wire them all in order to get better throughput though. Maybe somebody could answer that

Because, for one, with 2 of these you won't get automatic seamless transfer between devices. The BT devices form a mesh network and have an intelligence to them that should mean your device is connected to the disc with the best strength.

I have 2 and have both connected via Ethernet, can't say that you'd be able to wire in 3 or 4 for definite but I can't see why not.
Does this work with any broadband setup imor just bt?

Certain devices (especially Apple devices) hold onto a WiFi connection as long as possible even though the connection is that weak data connectivity is impossible before then searching for another WiFi connection.

A Mesh system will switch you over to a different access point independent of the connected device seamlessly without a drop in connection.

Any broadband connection, BT is just the brand name. Bit confusing really and has been asked many times on various threads about these.

The first Whole home is hard wired into the BTHub6 and acts on a new SSID that none of your existing devices know about. The guide doesn't tell you to switch off the WiFi on the HomeHub6 or to connect all your WiFi devices (that were directly connected to the HomeHub6 WiFi) to the new Mesh.

I remapped all the WiFi devices manually but the Ethernet devices stayed connected fine to the HomeHub6.

Someone earlier said there is a better way to transfer all the devices over but I didn't change that.

I haven't checked the DHCP IP ranges but I'd assume the HomeHub is still the device issuing them, I'll check later

The Whole Home discs do not have inbuilt an inbuilt router (other mesh systems do offer this). Your current router will still handle DHCP. I turned off the wifi on my Virgin Superhub 2 and let the whole home discs handle this, the ip addresses are still issued by the superhub.

I thought as much, its been a long time since i looked at the OSI model
33504045-MI7Pc.jpgI bought one of these to connect to my BT smart hub and works perfectly all around my 3bedroomed semi. Getting 78 mb everywhere without spending a fortune.
