I only ordered one Wi-Fi Booster but I’ve received two. Why have you sent me two Wi-Fi Boosters?

We've sent you two Wi-Fi Boosters because you have a Telstra Smart Modem Gen 1 or a Telstra Frontier Modem. This means you’ll need to connect one Wi-Fi Booster directly to your modem use the second one to extend the signal. But don’t worry, your additional Wi-Fi Booster is free of charge.

What is the maximum number of Wi-Fi Boosters I can use with my modem?

You can use a maximum of four Wi-Fi Boosters with your Telstra modem. Remember that unless you have a Telstra Smart Modem Gen 2, one of your Wi-Fi Boosters will need to stay connected directly to your modem.
