Can I extend the range of Virgin super hub wireless by using extra wireless routers and if so how?

 I have a virgin wireless super hub upstairs and wish to extend its range, if this is possible  how can I do this, I have a spare virgin wireless router and and also an airport express I do not use, as the superhub works well, will these help me extend the range of my wireless signal. I wish to get to the granny annex my mum lives in? (A room in our converted garage on our semi, not a bankers mansion ;-)

I really hope someone helps you as I've spent most of the day trying to extend my superhub with an airport express and have failed miserably. I've followed instructions where I've found them within both virgin and apple communities - all to no avail. I then found this link http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Up-to-50Mb-broadband/Got-a-Mac-don-t-switch-to-Virgin/td-p/81429... so am now considering investing more in an airport extreme. Until the. I'll keep an eye out and if I find a way I'll share it. Good luck

Hi hlmch2,

 

It may be an idea to look into something call a 'home plug' as this would help extend the connection a little further out. This is something that we're able to support via the forum however you should b able to find plenty of information online or perhaps another forum member will be able to help you out.

Kind Regards,

Lindsey P
