Extending the wifi range SH2

I am looking to extend the wifi range of super hub2.

For 'both' wireless bands 2.4GHz & 5GHz.

Tried a 2.4GHz TP-Link N300 but it was a nightmare cutting off 5GHz signal.

Not sure what to get next?

Any tips appreciated

Re: Extending the wifi range SH2

I use the TP Link PA4020 kit. That is a powerline adaptor and gives me 100mpbs+ in my shed 100 feet away through an extension lead.

I also manually chose channels and assigned them as fixed but to be honest, it all depends on where you want to boost to.

There is also the 3rd party router route (no pun intended)...

Re: Extending the wifi range SH2

Im a little concerned, as the Kitchen (wireless low spot) is on a different ring main?

i.e. The Kitchen can be isolated from the fuse box.

thx

Hey sharper9,

Thanks for posting Smiley Happy

I just wanted to pop by with some advice. As your kitchen it on a different ring main I think the only option would be an Ethernet connection. Is it possible for you to get a long cable and then you can attach another router to that to extend your network in your kitchen?

Catch you again soon,

Take care.
