Hi all I just wanted to ask a question about extending my Wi-Fi range I have virgin media hub three and cat5 Cable to some of my rooms around the house.
I have extended one room by using a Rueter and use the same address as my virgin hub but it seems to have a conflict a little bit if I’m in the middle my Wi-Fi tried to get between the two. I was thinking of purchasing a mesh system or A Powerline extender so I can use the whole house with Wi-Fi.
Any suggestions would be appreciated considering I have CAT5 cables throughout the house.
If you have Ethernet cables through the house, all you need to do is put one or even two WAPs at the end of the cables. The Ubiquiti ones I use even have a spare RJ45 socket on them so you can attach one wired device or even a network switch.

Tudor is correct of course - but remember the VM Hubs dont dish out POE so you would need to get an "injector". However, although that is convenient you can also just plug (most of them) straight into a powersocket - and get the signal from the Cat6 connection.
