All was fine for a couple of days but now the booster wonít connect to the Sky main box? This doesnít seem to be an issue as the Mini seems to reach the main box fine - my understanding is that the boxes use a separate direct Wi-Fi mesh to the main BT one around the house, but multiple resets etc arenít getting the booster connected.

Anyone else experienced this issue? It seems pointless to even use the booster if itís not necessary?
Point of clarity (despite what some may say) it's not a booster box, it's a repeater box and any wifi repeater will lose signal both over distance and with the number of repeaters in place.

Also depends on what your original speed at the router is - mine is about 75Mbps (copper wires, no cable option here).

I've had Sky back a number of times to get it set up correctly and am fed up of the number of times I've had people on the phone say 'you've too many things connected', which is untrue. When an engineer comes round, they're mostly sensible and can sort problems that the call centre people have said cannot be done.

For a Sky customer, a repeater box costs £9.99 to send and belongs to Sky.
