 Wi Fi boosters
Topic Originator: adampar1

Just moved into a new larger house and need s booster so we can pick up WiFi upstairs.

Prices seem to range from £20 to over £100. Don't understand exactly what I'm paying for with the more expensive ones. Is there any real benefit in getting an expensive one?

Never used one but my dad got a cheapo extender (£20 maybe) and it works fine. If I was doing it myself I'd be tempted by the ones that use your electrical cables.

Do you have an old router and powerline plugs?

What router do you currently use?

TP-Link is the one my dad has. Their router is almost the opposite side of the house to where his desktop PC is upstairs and it works fine.

They just the Extender 600 kits PARSwede? Don't think there should be any issue as they're just designed to put the BB signal through the electrical wiring

Shouldn't be a problem....although you probably won't be able to move 4k TV with them.

I tweaked an old router to use as a "slave" repeater half way between the principal router and the rear of the house where the signal needed boosting - worked really well.

That required an ethernet cable from principal router to the slave underneath the floorboards, not difficult as we have an inspection hatch to access down there, and room to move around.

I was advised it was a better signal than using powerline plugs.

Different scenario running it up to a higher floor obviously.

I had to read up for days beforehand and follow the instructions to the last detail - not sure I could do it again though.

Google for instructions, You Tube as well.

You might find that a plug and play wifi extender like the T-LINK does the business - B&M have them at decent price.
