Extending fast broadband connection to garden office

Go to solution

Hi,

Which is the BEST way of supplying a FAST connection from a home hub on fibre broadband, to a garden office approximately 20 metres away from where the hub is positioned? The office will need the lions share of the connection during the day. Should I connect via a wired connection over this distance, by means of a plug in extender, or through whole home wifi adapters?

Thank you.

Ethernet cable is the best option with powerline extenders if on the same ring main second.

I agree with @licquorice.

 

My situation was slightly different in that wifi from my router (upstairs, front of house) wasn't reaching into my garden (downstairs, back of house). I solved it by using a powerline extender downstairs plugged into a spare router used just as a wireless access point. I now get excellent coverage throughout the house and garden although it does require selecting a different wifi source as necessary - but that's no great hassle.
