I currently have BT Fibre Essential (with a Smart Hub 1); what do I need to do to get a BT wifi disc to extend my wifi?
The only upgrade I’m offered when I’m logged into the BT site is for BT Halo 3, which includes a Smart Hub 2, but doesn’t seem to come with any discs; should I just order this and then buy a disc?
Note; I’ve tried power line extenders, and haven’t found them to be reliable, so I think these discs are worth a try.

Thanks for your response John, but after speaking to a couple of BT advisors, the best solution for me was to get BT Halo 3, and potentially add a single wifi disc if I need it...
Halo 3 gets me the new Smart Hub 2 for only £4 a month more than I’m paying for Fibre Essential; the new Hub potentially solves my Wi-fi range issues without paying for Complete Wifi, which would include up to 3 wifi discs, extra tech support and costs £10 more a month - I just don’t need all that.
If I still need to extend the Wi-fi range, I can just buy a disc on its own as they work with the Smart Hub 2, and this will still work out a lot cheaper than Complete Wifi.
another option would be to purchase a Smart Hub 2 from ebay or similar also saving a few £
An ISP router is very limited in terms of configurability as it is a "one size fits all" solution for ISP's.
