    This was great at first. It was easy to set up and gave great coverage in the patchy areas and waaaaaay into our garden too. However, about four months after set up it stopped working. It lights up as before, devices list it as an option but it just keeps showing as “no internet” and not actually working anymore. After a bit of googling this seems to be a frequent problem for these BT extenders. A shame really as it seemed such a good solution for a decent price.

    After installation, rather than operate as a wifi extender, it spent 99.99% of its time searching for the main wifi signal in my home. The product failed to lock on to the main wifi signal at the weak signal location where I installed it even though my phone had no problem doing so. In the 0.01% of the time it did lock on to the main wifi signal, it lost lock after 2 minutes and returned to doing what it does best, searching for the main wifi signal which resulted in connected devices not being able to access the internet. To be fair, the device worked fine when it was located 2 feet away from my ISP gateway, which kind of defeated its function as a wifi extender to provide signal coverage in the home where that coverage is minimal.

    Be aware, only 2.4GHz not 5GHz – If your router has been configured to only support 5GHz this won’t work.
    Some people disable the old 2.4GHz which is slower but goes longer distances to save devices incorrectly switching throughout the day. If you are one of these people. Just know the below spec:

    Security
    • WPA (TKIP), WPA2 (AES), WPA+WPA2
    Standards
    • Wireless:IEEE802.11a/b/g/n
    Transmission speed
    • 2.4GHz: 150Mbps (20MHz mode), 300Mbps (40MHz mode)

    For me the WPS button picked up the 2.4GHz split channel ive got it in for my Virgin 3.0 Hub easily enough. Aparenly 10m is away from the hun is still too close, but it has given me signal in the garden just fine.
    It copies the password and SSID of your hub settings and rebroadcasts them as a slightly different SSID. So you will need to reconnect to this new network.
    If you unplug this device it does remember the settings so theres no need to set it up again.
    Perfect to plug in above a cupboard out the way once set up, never to be needed to touch…

    This is by far the best Wifi extender BT have made to date, it works so much better than other brands, Works ok with granite walls too but the walls do still effect signal but still much better than others. Simple to setup and made well. Cant fault it so far, worth a try if your having low wifi signal problems.

    Don’t know if I’ve picked up a duff product. I bought from amazon warehouse, so it was second hand. It’s currently unplugged not being used due to me getting annoyed with it. Seems to have an intermittent fault. Devices sometimes randomly disconnect. The firmware is on version 1.2, which is weird as the latest firmware according to BT is 1.1. I asked if they had rolled back the software due to any issues, they told me “no”. So, the only reasonable explanation is that, the person who previously owned and returned it, was a time traveler.

    Was a bit weary about purchasing the 1200 because of some negative reviews. Installed it which was very easy some twenty feet away from my Router. It was purchased to direct WiFi through a tree foot wall around a corner and to my new Smart TV in which the wifi signal was constantly going on and off.
    Once I added my password into the 1200 it found I was at a good range and problem solved. UPDATE: didn’t last very long, don’t waste your money on this

    There is a light on the front that is either solid amber flashing amber or green. Green is your goal. You are supposed to find a ‘Goldilocks’ socket, not too close to the router, and not too far away from the router. I was hoping to put this in an outside office (30 metres from the router) but ended up putting it in the conservatory, which was the only place where I got a solid green light. I expected much faster speeds but although the signal was extended it was much weaker. A bit disappointing really.

    My wifi does not reach to my room. Since setting this up I’ve had no problems, no buffering or disconnection issues. It’s great for if you can’t reach wifi in certain places. Doesn’t take more than two minutes to set it up. Very quick and easy.
