Getting the best from your Wireless Booster
More than one Black Spot in your home?
If you have more than one black spot in your home, you might want to consider
re-positioning your Wireless Booster for the area you want improved the most. Whilst
it may be possible to position the booster to a location that covers all the black spots,
Wireless Booster performance is optimised for one black spot.
Is your wireless device connected to the strongest signal?
If you notice a drop in Wi-Fi signal in other areas around the home it may indicate that
your wireless device is not connected to the strongest Wi-Fi signal (some devices do
not select the strongest signal automatically). To ensure connection to the strongest
signal, go to ‘Settings’ on your wireless device and turn the Wi-Fi OFF and ON again.
i
To find out how to turn the Wi-Fi OFF and ON again on your wireless device,
please refer to the user guide for your wireless device.
