I've now got six of these strung across the house and they are unbelievably good - had no issues with the app, uptime is constant, speeds are excellent - a fantastic bit of kit!
Work great faster than anything i had before shame they don't do instructions for people with windows systems not do they not no some of us don't have apple or android took me a while to set up had to wait for someone with android phone to come and the ups app does not work either, but once set up brill
I have always had trouble getting wifi in the bedroom and in my sons bedroom on the top floor of the house. I literally couldn't get a single bar of signal. So I thought I would give these a try.
I expected the signal to improve slightly but dint expect these to be so good. It took me 5 minutes to set up and although I'm quite good with technology, I think my 3 year old could have set these up!
My devices seamlessly connect between the discs and I can now get full signal and 70+meg in every room in the house. Well impressed!
I have spent lots of money trying to get good wifi coverage over the last few years. Purchased these and can't quite believe how good they are. No more dead spots in any part of the house. Super Fast Internet in every room even the garden.
You might need to reset them once a month to keep them and the app running. More than happy with the product.
I had a dead spot in my house that would keep dropping connection, or receive about 5-10mbps if I managed to connect. I've now got 2 BT Whole Home hubs, and I get full signal in the dead spot, and receive >100mbps speed (the maximum we pay for).
Setup was very easy, just download the app, and follow the instructions.
Not the cheapest but had black spots everywhere. Bought various different solutions but got very weak speeds
Just set up and getting a minimum of 30mb all over our 5 bed house Best Buy
I purchased the Whole HomeWiFi package primarily in order to broadcast one SSID across the house as secondly to improve coverage. The three pack of disks was used in conjunction with the latest BT Homehub and would have been easy to setup if it were not for the faulty Ethernet cable provided as part of the pack! After an hour of attempting to get any of the risks to connect to the homehub via he supplied ethernet cable I tried one of my own cables and bingo, everything worked. Could be a one off but check the provided flat cable etehrnet cable does not work it may be faulty. The whole home app works a treat and you can see which devices are connected to each AP, manage devices and assign names to each device for identification.
Expensive to buy and the supplier packaging must account for a significant cost but overall a unique solution that is aesthetically pleasing and works well to create common meshed network
I have a problem familiar to other reviewers, an old house with thick walls or wi-fi unfriendly building materials. No stud walls for us.
This product took about 20 minutes to set up and now gives me consistent wi-fi throughout the house. I am also using the internet output on one to connect a router for a number of wired devices and it is all good.
I bought BT WholeHome WiFi to replace an ageing Netgear Range Extender. My BT SmartHub is situated where the main line enters which is at the front of the house. WiFi towards the rear (which isn’t that far) was pretty poor hence the range extender. However, the range extender was only 2.4Ghz and I always had to manually change wifi networks on devices between front and back. This BT WholeHome WiFi solves all the problems. I now have total coverage and devices seem to switch seamlessly between access points. I have actually turned the WiFi off on the BT SmartHub to try and minimise any potential interference. I am not sure if this makes any difference because the Hub still has BT FON and WiFi X working. Its only the normal Hub WiFi network that seems disabled. Anyway, excellent coverage (even at 5GHz) and seemless switching makes BT WholeHome WiFi worth considering. Its so easy to set up. The only downside for some folk might be the location of the discs. Ideally, they should be placed away from anything that may reduce the signal but close enough to each other to “mesh” (and near a power socket, although the cable is quite long).. So the ideal place may not be feasible but I have managed to put mine where they still work great and aren’t in full view. Fit and forget them, it just works.
Our house is large with 50cm thick internal stone walls - getting any kind of household wifi is almost impossible. I bought a three aerial Whole Home system. Ordering was simple and free delivery executed in 24 hrs. The packaging is very (too?) high end and solid. You have to use a smartphone app for installation instructions. Connection of the first aerial to my router ( BT Home Hub 6) is easy and connects in 60 seconds. Several trials prove you can't transmit through solid masonry walls - let alone 2 walls. But I have ethernet cabling from the router across the width of the house. I plugged the second aerial into the cable port behind one thick wall and within 60 seconds had perfect connectivity and wifi. Connecting the third behind the 2nd wall resulted in further perfect coverage. Whole home is not an answer to thick walls, but it is brilliant to set up, requires no knowledge and has solved my lack of wifi. The app is great, but lacks finesse in control.
