Need a wifi addition to TP passthrough kit, is it possible

TPlink passthrough kit (-PA4010P -AV600) connects the TV, what can I add (without any conflict) to extend wifi to a distant room with poor signal? Hub 3. It's a large house

A mesh system would work. Or run a cable from the hub to a central point and install a wireless access point

Trying thinking of a budget in mind and we can make some suggestions.

Could you also let us know what broadband package (Speed) you have?

Well between £20 and £100 - we just need to sort it out - we have the m200 fibre broadband with tv.

Something like:

https://www.argos.co.uk/product/9180581 

There are two devices which connect to each other to extend the wireless signal. You have a couple of choices on how you setup this kind of kit:

  • Put the HUB into modem mode and one of the devices effectivley replaces the HUB for router and wireless duties. The second device sits somewhere in the middle to give wireless coverage in other areas of the home.
  • Leave the HUB 'As is' and use the two devices in other areas, one plugged into the HUB via ethernet (Wired) connection, and the other elsewhere, to give extended coverage where the HUB doesn't reach.

What is it you're looking to achieve exactly?

Thanks very much for this, very helpful.

Would it definitely not conflict with the existing TPlink pass through kit [which is there for the TV], in other words, is it ok for both to be running at the same time?

Yes, no issues there.

The only thing to consider, in the example kit I've linked to, is there are only two ethernet sockets on each device.

In theory you could ditch the powerline adapter (Passthrough kit) altogether and plug the TV into the second device!

It depends how well the coverage is, depending on where you place the devices.

You could even budget for the three pack if you wanted to:
