THICK WALLS BT HOME HUB 5 EXTENSION PROBLEMS

  Angastura 21:54 17 Nov 2017

I have a BT Home Hub 5 and am not linked to Infinity. Our internet connection is poor, less than 7mbs. I live in a very old house with very thick stone walls and there is one room that I need to get a fairly decent wifi reception to watch a smart TV and and use a PC without wifi interruptions. I have tried the BT wifi extenders and other devices under £50 but these have proved to be flakey. Can anybody advise? Many thanks!

Home Hub. Look for ones that allow a 'pass through' power supply and you can buy units that create a WiFi point

I do bt wi fi ...put your2nd pc ( wi fi ) as close as you can to your main set up , once everything works , move your wi fi (2nd pc ) to the room you want it to work in.

I meant, of course, Home Plug

Powerline adapters sound like your best option. Here's our Powerline recommendations.

You can get them with an added Wi-Fi hotspot if you want better wireless too.
