Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money I installed and tested these units extensively for weeks. I had their own engineers come out after they failed to resolve issue of speed. They would run at an abismal 2Mbit/s second from a 60Mbit/s router. After literally months of back and forth the engineers from GroupGear simply gave up and told me to return them. They blamed SKY for their router. I installed a repeater unit from BG, worked perfectly first time. In short, they DON'T WORK and it wasn't for lack of knowledge or trying. BG sockets were cheaper and worked first time with my SKY router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased Full connectivity throughout the house. Simple to fit and smart looking, great idea to have the handy USB ports. When I changed my server I had a reconnection issue which was not resolved by instruction manual nor YouTube, I called the technical number and they patiently guided me via another route,success, all up and running. Very pleased overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product and service A great way to send the wifi around a large premises. We had many issues with trying to service all areas of our small hotel and this has solved the problem. Easy installation and great back up. We did experience a few teething problem but John and Tom guided us over the phone to get everthing right. They even came out to do a number of checks and insure everything worked as it should. Great service and a brilliant product that does what is says on the tin.

Can these be hardwired with Ethernet Cable?

I want to install these in my bedrooms but I want Ethernet cable running behind the plasterboard and hard wiring theses wifi extender sockets, is that possible?
Asked by: Mani87
This product uses Powerline technology which alleviates the need to hard wire the product as it uses your current cabling to connect as if it was hard wired - any issues please call our techical helpline for advice. Thanks

Can these be installed straight into a 2 gang drywall back box or do they need the extender shown in the photo

Asked by: Diycoop
Hi, Yes they could be it does depend on the depth of the drywall box if the box is only 25mm deep then you would require the spacer. Thanks

How difficult are these to fit?

Do you just change this as you would with a conventional wall socket? Do you have to alter your existing wifi network set up in any way?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes these are easy to change as you would with a conventional socket. Just make sure that you check if you require the spacer before wiring the socket in. And should really be done by a qualified electrician. No you do not need to alter your existing Wi-Fi Network just follow the useful instructions provided to see how easy it is.
