I am a new NOW broadband user previously with Virgin Media. I have always had to use a wifi extender to help performance in my office, the furthest room in the house from the access point. I have used the Netgear EX6000 for the last 3 years and has worked perfectly. Unfortunately, the WPS pairing does not work with the NOW TV Hub Two WPS. NOW customer service have said it's probably down to incompatibility. Can anybody recommend a proven, tried and tested extender that definitely works/pairs with the NOW TV Hub Two WPS. Thanks.
I don't use any wifi extenders with my NowTV Hub 2 Router, but have you tried splitting the NowTV Hub 2 WiFi network bands and then factory reset your wifi extender and then try connecting to the NowTV Hub Router 2.4ghz wifi range ?
Here's the instructions.
Your Hub Two is dual-band (2.4GHz and 5 GHz). Splitting these bands to create 2 different Wi-Fi networks can help to improve the speed to your devices. Here’s how to do it.
Open your web browser and enter "192.168.0.1” in the address bar.
SelectMaintenanceand enter “admin” and “nowtv” as the username and password.
SelectWirelessand then2.4 GHz Wireless Settings.
Scroll down to “Wireless Access Point” and uncheckSynchronise 2.4GHz and 5GHz Settings.
In the ‘Name (SSID)’ box, Change the network name to distinguish it from the current network (e.g. add “_2.4G” to the current name). SelectApply.
Check the network name has been updated, and then select5GHz Wireless Settings.
To be able to see easily which network is which on your devices, change the ‘Name (SSID)’ here too (e.g. add “_5G” to the current name). SelectApply.
That’s it. SelectLogoutat the top of the screen to exit.
