Does each Boost expansion device get its signal from the Boost device wired to the modem? I was hoping that the expansion devices can pass the signal from one device to the next, thereby extending the range from the device wired to the modem, but this does not seem to be the case.
It appears that a Boost device will only connect to another Boost device which is connected by an ethernet cable to the modem.
I have a fiber optic connection with a T3200M modem and 4 Boost devices. I am not getting errors but the Telus App shows a very weak signal on 2 of the devices (-71 to -75 db). As a test, I moved one of the devices (Boost A) half way between the Boost connected to the modem and another device (Boost B) with a weak signal. I started Boost A and it showed excellent signal strength. I restarted Boost B but it still showed the same weak signal strength. Without moving Boost A, I ran a temporary ethernet cable to Boost A and restarted it. I now had 2 Boost devices connected by ethernet, the original and Boost A which is closer to Boost B. I restarted Boost B and it now showed excellent signal strength so it appears it connected to Boost A but wouldn't connect before I connected Boost A with an ethernet cable. Can anyone verify if this is true?
Is there any way, using the Telus App or anything else, to determine which Boost device another Boost device is connected to?
With the T3200M, you access the admin page with an Ethernet-connected computer, and discover the IP address assigned to the Boost device. You can then enter the IP address of the Boost device to access its web interface.
I am not sure which web utility you are referring to. The app I was using runs on mobile devices and can be downloaded from the Apple or Google Store. It's called Telus My Wi-Fi and is used to set up your Wi-Fi network with Boost devices.
