Extending WiFi signal upstairs

Go to solution

I have BT Inifinity with Homehub 3. I need to get internet to a new computer in eldest's bedroom upstairs. The signal from the homhub doesn't quite reach.

I spoke to BT and they said get a repeater. They said don't get a powerline adapter.

I have been looking at both particularly the latter with another router plugged in but am still unsure which route to take.

I hope someone can offer some advice as to what th best thing to do to get a decent signal upstaris.

 

Thanks in advance

Ben

Powerline adapters are fine.

Thanks for your reply. Is it plausible to plug a router into the upstairs powerline adapter?

Do you mean a wireless access point, or something to increase the number of Ethernet connections?

All of the options are discussed on the web page link I gave you.
