I’ve just installed a garden office with cat 7 Ethernet. But I would also like WiFi. I have a Hub 4 in the front of the house and a virgin WiFi booster at the back, garden end. The office is approx 25m from the booster. I wanted to try another virgin booster but they are impossible to contact, so considering buying a different brand(eg. Netgear) or a mesh solution. Could anyone advise please? Thanks!
Not to mention that low-brow booster solutions probably won't work as the garden office is likely to be on its own electrical circuit, and powerline booster perform badly or not at all when trying to link across different circuits.

Good advice above. Mike says use a wifi router - if you have one lying around then you are sorted - if buying new then that is probably overkill as you are paying for router functionality that you done want/need. A wireless access point +/- a 1GB unmanaged switch will be cheaper and do the job. Or a combined access point with extra ports is a good solution too
