Not the best brand but the specifications are impressive for the price... This usually sells for over 40 pounds... Netgear, TPlink and Belkins all over 40 pounds for 1200 MBps

does this actually extend the wifi over the same SSID, or just creates another SSID with something like 'ext-ORIGINAL-SSID'?
Just pick up a used Apple AirPort Extreme on eBay for about a tenner and everyone’s happy in every room

Hi excuse my ignorance, I have bt broadband with the latest router can I use this alongside it to improve my signal throughout my home?
Yes mate , I’m on virgin super hub 2 with an effective range on 3 feet. You simply set up the device to create a new network or extend existing via iPhone or iPad by using the WiFi section on your device. It may be the same on android.

I use one in every room on 5ghtz with 2 1tb time capsules ( £30 each eBay ).

I decided to put one in each room to plug Tv , Xbox , laptop etc in to one point as this give about 50mb net in each room without making anyone else go slow
Best of all I can control the net of each room so when kids are bad or need bed I can close the net of just in that room
This is crap bought one and it is very bad!
WiFi is like Dracula it sucks

So rather than buying 1 item your suggesting people buy 1 item per room???

It really doesn't.
Had one of these, returned it after about two months. Was more hassle than it's worth. It had a firmware version installed that doesn't exist anywhere. Can't remember exactly, but think it had V1.2, but the latest firmware released for this is 1.1 .
Most WiFi extenders are total poop. The cheapest viable solution is to use an old router but you need to be reasonably competent to do that. Power line plugs with WiFi are also a good cheapish solution that actually works, unlike range extenders.
range extenders are useless. Buy Power Plugs instead, they actually work for not much more than £30

I have done the same! Kids have 5ghz ssid which I disable at will. Rest of house and my kit keeps happily working on the 2.4 ghz band

Just an Apple Airport , don’t really matter what Gen but later is better as they support both 2.4 & 5ghtz and a bit further reach. You also need an Apple device to enable them.

Simply plug into a wall socket the airport device , then on the back of the airport is a pin hole reset to push 10 secs till orange light blinks like mad ( best of 2nd hand doing this ). Then go on your Apple device , go to settings - WiFi and at the bottom will say airport ABCD1223 etc click on it and follow the on screen setting , select extend , type the BT hubs password in and 30 seconds will say done and that’s it.
Thanks for the reply do i need a ethernet cable between them or is it wireless?

Any , I’ve got wired ( 1 meter cable ) to the main Apple mk6 one that shares wirelessly to the rest. That’s only because our virgin super hub won’t share wireless outside of the living room.

But any , they just scan for a wireless signal and latch on to it as long as the password is there.

Can I ask you what type of airport you bought, do you have the particular model number? Thank you
