I have just moved my bt hub into the kitchen and the reception for broadband in the front room is very poor now ( I did have the computer in the front room connected by cable to the hub but the wire from the kitchen got trapped in the door, so had to move the hub nearer tto the plug).
I have looked in BT shop and there is a new BT smart Hub, or should I go for the Broadband extender 600 kit, if the latter can it be plugged into an extention socket for the electric plug part, I need some advice please.
Or should I just extend the cable from the source to the hub and reposition the hub next to my computer?
The smart hub is unlikely to help, and it seems to have problems.
This is one solution http://www.shop.bt.com/products/bt-mini-wi-fi-home-hotspot-600-kit-084288-BVFF.html
It will work on the normal short extension leads, but not an extension reel.
Extending the RJ11 cable using a data extension kit, may be a better option if its not too far away.
Look for 15M ADSL RJ11 Broadband Modem Extension Cable - Male to Male with coupler.
Is a normal extension kit a rectangle one with about 4 sockets, compared to an extension reel that is round? thanks
Yes, they work just fine, provided they do not have inbuilt surge protectors.
