I'm new to the community but have a question I'm hoping someone can help with.
I have the usual Virgin router set up in the house, from that I've run a cable up to my office the end of the garden. It plugs in to a 5 port Ethernet Switch, which my laptops and printer then plug into
I get a great signal (Ookla speedtest this morning cae back as 208.12 Mbps).
What I would like though is to plug something into it that will give me a wifi signal, so I can get data on my mobiles via wifi rather than 4G.
What I need help with is understanding what the "something" is that I will need ?
The only similarity is that my wifi link terminates into a wifi router configured as an access point, whereas you terminate your cable into a switch.
Using the wifi router, it effectively works as a 4 port switch into the office as well as suppling both 2.4 and 5g wifi to the home office. All for about 20 quid. In my case, the router is in the office "loft" space.
I do not recommend "extenders", they sit at the edge of a wifi range and re-transmit, therefore you only get half the effective speed.
