Troubleshooting Boosters


Two WiFi booster units

If the Booster’s not working properly, follow these simple steps to improve its performance.

Find the Booster’s happy place

  • Use power sockets on internal walls but do not use extension cables
  • Avoid direct obstruction to the Booster such as cupboards or shelves
  • Position away from devices that may cause interference i.e. chargers
  • Provide ventilation as the Boosters can get very warm while in use

If the Booster’s positioned correctly and still not working, check out our step-by-step guide.
