Another Vodafone Sure Signal Issue

Hi all

So I have a Vodafone Sure Signal, version 3.

Whilst it works intermittently, the main issue I have is that I have to stand up to 6 feet away from it to make and recieve calls. Outside this area then then I have next to no signal.

I am in a wide open space and Sure Signal is connected to mains and directly plugged into router.

Its been like this for a few weeks now.

 

I thought, this would provide full signal to most of a house (within 20 feet) at least.

Vodafone are next to useless in helping me, and a brief search online and cant really find a solution.

 

I have restarted everything, disconnected and tried again.

I could do a proper reset, tho this does take up to 24 odd hours for it to restart services, which I cant really afford, to do as I have zero reception in my village.

 

Can anyone help?

 

Would using a BT home hub 5 be any better at all? I'm considering using this instead of the plusnet router.

Any thoughts? 

Thanks!

I have now changed to BT Home Hub 5, hoping to see if this makes any change.

I have also used the following guide to open up ports of the router:
