I need to get wifi signal in my garden. When baby is asleep we can only check on baby camera using phone data as the wifi signal is strong enough. I keep running out of mobile data.
I have a BThub6
I have BT infiinity fibre speed around 100MB
What is the best solution? A more powerful router? For example a
All routers in the UK emit the same wifi power by law. A router with external aerials should help as they are more efficient, experimenting with different channels may help. However, nothing is guaranteed with wifi it is a question of try it and see.
Hi stuiegbike, sounds like you need a Wi-Fi Extender like the ones here. If you want absolute max speed, then go for the 11ac 1200 model, but the other models should work well too if you're only looking to connect one or 2 devices from the garden.
A wifi extender won't help if the router is already in an optimal position to serve the garden.
Hi again, yes I agree that a Wi-Fi Extender might not always be the solution.
@stuiegbike Assuming moving your router isn't an option (but worth a try if you haven't tried this already), then a Wi-Fi Extender could work if your router is in the room next to the one nearest to your garden. But unlikely to work well if your router is further away.
If your router is too far, then a powerline wifi as Devon_Dave mention could indeed be an option. It's slightly more expensive, but you're more likely to get better performance. The BT range of powerline wifi (we call them Wi-Fi Home Hotspots) is here. Same advice apply as for the extenders, go for one of the 11ac 1000 if you want fastest speed, but one of the lower spec one could work too if you're more cost conscious.
All these products can also be bought in any good electrical retailer if you prefer.
I hope one of these options work out for you, and apologise if we can't give definitive advice. Unfortunately, it's very hard to give that kind of advice remotely 😉
I think you are all missing the point that gardens don't have power sockets generally.
