Powerline senders with WiFi at both ends

Hi all,

I need to extend a wireless network, I don’t have access to the router to plug a Ethernet cable. I have tried a WiFi extender but the distance is to far for a stable connection. I tried using a friends Powerline adapters, with my repeater connected to the wireless router then my repeater via Ethernet to his Powerline adapter. This worked well.

Is there such a thing as a Powerline adapter set that can connect via WiFi to the router instead of using Ethernet? So I don’t have to go from the router to repeater to Powerline adapters?

You could consider something like a WI-Fi mesh network.

click here am just awaiting FTTP to be connected. I have the new BT smart hub 2 and, with my plan, I get complete wi-fi so a disc was included. I can get others if I need them. This is with BT. Easy to set up and working very well.
