Download the BT Business app from the Apple App Store   Download the BT Business app from Google Play

Not got the app? You can still set up your Wi-Fi disc or Wi-Fi Plus extender without it. Watch this short video to set up or follow the steps below it.

1. Where’s your wi-fi network weak?

If you don't already know, try walking around with your phone or a laptop to check the strength of your wi-fi signal.

Use your mobile or laptop to check your wi-fi strength.

2. The best spot for your Complete Wi-Fi or Complete Wi-Fi Plus Extender

The best spot is a clear space off the floor close to a power socket. Make sure the vents on the back of your Complete Wi-Fi disc or Complete Wi-Fi Plus extender are clear of obstructions.

Keep your Wi-Fi Disc off the floor.

3. Find a spot between your hub and the weak wi-fi area

Usually this is about halfway between the two devices. Plug your Wi-Fi Disc or Wi-Fi Plus Extender into a power socket and switch it on.

Wi-Fi Disk will light up red when you plug it in.

4. Wait for a single light to show

After a minute or two the light on your Wi-Fi Disc will stop flashing red and turn either solid blue or orange.

If you are using Complete Wi-Fi Plus the light will stop flashing Indigo and turn either solid blue or solid orange

You have an ok wi-fi signal — try moving your Wi-Fi Disc or Complete Wi-Fi Plus extender closer to your Hub to make the signal even stronger.

If you find your wi-fi blind spot isn't quite covered, try moving your Wi-Fi Disc or Wi-Fi Plus extender further away from your Hub. If you can't cover all your blind spots with one Wi-Fi Disc or extender you can contact us to request another.

On the rare occasion you need to place a Wi-Fi Disc/extender outside the reach of your Hub, your Wi-Fi Disc/extender can be connected to your Hub via an Ethernet cable. We advise against doing this though and suggest contacting us to request an additional Wi-Fi Disc.

If you are using Complete Wi-Fi Plus extenders you can connect one extender to another via Wi-Fi to extend the range.
