I have BT broadband using a BT Home Hub 4 - Type B. This gives me WiFi in much of the house, but not all of it, so I would like to buy some kit that will extend the WiFi to the rest of the house, and perhaps even the garden. What should I buy? I only need WiFi for my laptop, not for any other use. I would like something that I don't have to plug the laptop into - ie genuine WiFi, not hard-wired. Grateful for any help you can give me.
You could consider using BT Complete WiFi.
Presumably, as a Home Hub 4 user, you are subscribed to a good broadband speed.
Complete WiFi gives a a relatively simple broadband extension for everyday use, not always successful for advanced handheld/mobile devices which are constantly being used “on the move” in the home on WiFi . This will involve provision of one black extension disk which is connected wirelessly. Disc must be placed carefully.
Thanks! I was wondering whether one of the devices that you plug into an electric socket might work too. But the info on the BT Shop website isn’t clear as to whether they provide WiFi or whether you have to physically connect your laptop to the device. No one at the BT Shop knows either!
Or my option
e) BT Mini Wi-Fi Home Hotspot 600 kit (not multi) (£49.99)
Option (b) is a very poor choice in my opinion, it will always be a compromise.
Sorry folks, I have a follow-up question: does anyone know the length of the ethernet cable supplied with the BT Mini Wi-Fi Home Hotspot 600 Kit, please?
