They also advise putting it in an area where there's no wireless signal. They say if you put it into an area with a signal already it will generate interference.
It says "Take your Wireless Booster to the room or area in your home where the black spot is, plug it into a power socket closest to your router and switch it on at the mains."
Surely putting it where there's no signal already means it's either going to
1) Get no signal, like everything else in that area (clearly the most obvious thing) OR
2) Get a signal but connect at some ridiculous speed such as 1Mbps and be almost unusable.
Surely they should be advising plugging it in where the signal is not strong but not a black spot, no?
It also says "Please note: If you move your Wireless Booster too close to your router i.e into the area where you already have Wi-Fi coverage, it will cause interference."
I don't understand how it's going to magically pick up this signal in an area with no signal currently and work well... & Sky literally make it seem like a bad thing plugging it in anywhere that currently has any WiFi signal.
