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......

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product but... Does exactly what it should and has made a noticeable difference to my wifi. However, since this was installed, I can no longer get signal on my dab radio, with socket disconnected the radio works fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clever, clever product What a piece of genius. Really great product. Easy to install and get working and improves wifi coverage seamlessly. No more loss of outlets and ugly spider looking things plugged into your wall.

BG WI-FI EXTENDER 626FG

Is it available with black inserts?
Asked by: Rascal001
Hi Rascal001, BG do make a version with black inserts (our model code:- NBS22U3B), but ScrewFix do not currently take this from us so you would need to contact a local Electrical Wholesaler instead.

How close does this socket have to be to the router?

Asked by: Gspbasses
Hi Gspbasses, It is more about Wi-Fi signal strength from the router, the socket requires a reliable 50% or higher strength in order to remain connected so this will be the guiding requirement for finding a suitable mounting position rather than a specific distance.

More than 1?

If you have 2 or more of these do they conflict with each other or as they use the same network name is it a seamless transfer to the strongest signal?
Asked by: CornishStorm
Hi CornishStorm. We do not recommend installing more than 1 device, as having multiple devices can cause interference with each other, causing your internet to drop out/not connect.

Do these change the name of the wifi network?

Do these change the name of the wifi network, or does it simply just extend it? Have a couple things that I want this for and need to know if I need to reconfigure my settings?
Asked by: Samna
Hi Samna, Once connected to a router or other access point the socket will re-transmit the signal with the same name and required password, so devices will slide seamlessly between them without needing to reconfigure.
