Poor wifi in upstairs bedroom

Hi,

We have very poor wifi signal in our bedroom.  This has been the case since we moved in but hasn't caused an issue as we don't regularly use wifi in that room.  This has now changed and we'd like this sorted please.  Sometimes it is 1 or 2 bars and sometimes it can't be accessed at all and we go onto 4G.  We live in a small 3 bed detached house, so not sure why we are having this issue. 

Can you help please?

How I sorted it and a lot more people tne same,as the hub 3 is useless for WiFi unless a max of 10 metres away from it.

Re: Poor wifi in upstairs bedroom

We now get WiFi on our decking and in the garden that we only got before with BT never with virgin.

Tried the intelligent WiFi completely useless borrowed a WiFi extender got a slightly better signal but not good enough.

Only option left was hub in modem mode and use another router the connection has been 100% solid no lagging or disconnections.

 The other option is to leave the Hub as is and just connect a good wireless access point upstairs - connected to the Hub by Cat6 ethernet cable.
