You just need a wireless access point. Google search TP Link TL-WA801ND which will be just fine.

As said by @Keith_Beddoe you just need a simple access point, and the one recommend will work fine for web browsing, streaming etc.

Although, if you have an Old Home Hub, or any other old router (preferably not a Smart Hub as people on here seem to be having problems) 

If you have one, you can post back for help with the settings that have to be changed.

Home Hub 5 preferable, but the lights indicating no internet (even though technically there is) will flash, this won’t happen on the HH3.

Guide here (for both, they share the same interface): http://unixetc.co.uk/2014/03/04/reuse-a-spare-bt-home-hub-as-a-wireless-access-point/

A cut piece of black insulation tape fixes that!
