Re: WI-if extender Ethernet

If you have a look at the TP-Link TL-WR702N Wireless N Nano Router/Range Extender. You can connect it to an Ethernet cable that is connected to your hub and it can be set to either act as a wifi extender or a router etc.

 

If you do a search on the well known Internet shopping site you can get one for about £15.

Yes I have set one up in my son's house and it works without problem and was easy to set up. I have not done a lot of downloading on it but as far as I am aware it is no worse than any wireless router.
