Rated 4 out of 5 by from Socket to me! Easy installation once minor problem with having to fit the 2 fine aerial wires in their correct location slots so they didn't get crushed when socket screwed in place. Very straight forward to connect to router - press and hold button on router for 5 sec then press button on socket and wait a few secs, job done! Works a treat, fitted at roughly 10m from router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install..... Looks, good and matches up with the other sockets we have around the house. Installation is a doddle. Linking to the router was easy as pie. Just follow the instructions and it linked up first time. Seems to boost the WiFi signal really well to. Too early to comment on reliability

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does The Job Previously purchased 2 x LAP 2 Gang Sockets with WiFi Boosters, one linked to our Wifi (furthest away from the hub) easily the second wouldn't link, tried it in various sockets to no avail! On ready reviews decided to try British General, Bingo, no issues linked instantly, will b e purchasing some more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic bit of kit Forget plug in wireless WIFI extenders just buy these, yes they are a bit pricey but are cheaper in white, but as we had the black nickel sockets in the house went for these, no more white boxes hanging out of every socket in every room, fitted and connected each one in less than ten mins and WIFI coverage around the upstairs of the house is now as good being downstairs by the router, cannot recommended these enough also get the added advantage they all have a USB socket as well for charging your peripherals...highly recommended......

Colour of inserts

According to this web-site SKU 626FG has graphite inserts but the packet states that the inserts are grey. Which colour are they? I am waiting for matching switched sockets to come into stock!
Asked by: SeasideKOS
Hi SeasideKOS, Graphite is a shade of grey, and BG only uses one grey colour for inserts across our ranges so they will match no problem.

Does the USB socket use electricity while there is nothing plugged into it? Thanks.

Asked by: Denvoak
Hi Denvoak, When there is nothing being charged the USB transformer circuit drops to a low-power stand-by mode which draws less than 75mW (or <0.000075 kW/h chargeable consumption), which is far lower than any plug-in type charger that we are aware of.

Can you please send me the instructions for this as my electrician has thrown them away

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi PhilSutton, There is a beginner's guide downloadable on the BG Electrical website, but there have been two generations of the extender and the guide is based on the original generation so there still may be some slight differences. If you continue to have problems with this please contact us directly at:- technical.support@bgelectrical.co.uk

Will this work with Virgin Broadband

Asked by: PhilGrett
Hi PhilGrett, We have no known incompatibilities based on service provider, it is just worth bearing in mind that the extender is for 2.4GHz signals specifically as these have a longer range to begin with than their 5GHz counterparts.

How far can these be fitted from the router ?

Asked by: Wolvesaywe
Hi Wolvesaywe, The key point is incoming signal strength, the extender circuit needs at least 50% Wi-Fi strength from the router in order to remain connected reliably, but different routers can achieve this different ranges, and this can further be affected by features of the building which they are installed in.
