Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent outdoors socket Bought this socket primarily due to the WiFi extender capability. Socket is well made not as sturdy as the single socket it replaced though. I do wonder how long the sealing cover clips will last. Very tight to clip so they must be under strain. Not a socket I suggest you use for regular opening of the cover. I was delighted with the WiFi capabilities. I thought being right on the limit of signal for my smartphone it would not work. It connected straight away giving slower but reliable WiFi in the garden… amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great idea to extend wifi. Great way to get power to the garden and extend wifi.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Utterly useless Installed this. Whilst it does extend range it does so at the expense of any meaningful speed. With the device off I pick up 15MBPS where it’s installed. With it on that drops to 1MBPS. Phoned manufacturer who says ‘it’s working, some drop of speed is expected’. When the level of drop off was challenged the manufacturer said ‘well, that’s some throughput isn’t it’. Utterly useless

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job Bought to replace a previous external socket which showed signs of internal corrosion but took the opportunity to replace with this one to also extend Wi-fi. No problems fitting and setting up (well worth reading the instructions carefully for the Wi-fi set up) and all working well. Given the signal is not great at the socket location, the extender is working very well. Time will tell but 5 stars from me.

Slow and buffering, any one else had issues??

Once connected to the wi-fi socket extender, websites very seldom load, watching anything on nexflix or prime is impossible! Just a constant buffering! Has anyone else had issues with the connection speed once connected to the Wi-fi socket??
Asked by: Homer1209
Phoned manufacturer helpline. They said we won’t guarantee any level of speed. Explained that speed is so slow that loading bbc.com is a ‘go away and make a cuppa while it loads’ experience. Their response was “well, it’s working then” Utterly useless as a Wi-fi point

Can this be locked when your away?

Asked by: focusross

can the lid on this box be closed when a plug is plugged in?

Asked by: squidge01827
It will close and fasten shut with a standard plug where the cable goes directly into the plug, if there is a strengthening moulding around the cable at the plug entry, such as on many power tools, vacuums etc. it won't close enough to fasten.

Cable Connection

Can normal internal type twin & earth cable be used to connect this external socket into the ring main? Is a suitable waterproof grommet provided with the switch to prevent water ingress?
Asked by: Pipeliner99
Hi Pipeliner99, As long as the cable is suitable rated for the predicted loads then it doesn't actually matter if it is T&E, SWA, Flex or singles running though conduit. No grommets or glands are provided as we don't know in advance what cabling option will be chosen, so you will requite a suitable 20mm diameter option to complete the waterproofing once a knockout is removed.

Fully installed but the WiFi speed too slow to be useable . Can this aspect of the device be disabled so it is a standard electric socket ?

Asked by: Kmn10
Hi Kmn10, If you put the socket into Holiday Mode then it will stop transmitting Wi-Fi within 60 seconds and stay this way until brought back out of the mode.
