Boosting wifi speed in bedroom

Hi

Have Infinity 1 and use HH2 ( have HH5 but loathe to change current set up which has worked fine until now.

My son plays Xbox one in bedroom and is now complaining that games lagging etc.

I could run another Ethernet but would be a faff. Is there another gizmo I can buy to improve quality/speed of wifi signal in bedroom? Preferably one that is compatible with HH2.

I realise it could be Xbox live rather than our set up but game to maximise speed at our end anyway.

Thanks for you time.

Powerline adaptors. See http://connectedhome.bt.com/product/mini-wifi-home-hotspot-500-kit-powerline-adapter/  you don't have to use BT ones, any make will do.

Ok many thanks. Just out of interest can I check the speed he's getting on his xbox one?

 

Regards

Done that now. Produces variable download between 5 and 12mb which is higher than the 3mb minimum Microsoft quote.

Will try one of the gizmos and see how much it improves.

Thanks again.
