Re: Wifi deadspot

Plugs could help - but possibly better to get an extension mesh system or similar. No way you could run a ethernet cable to the rooms temporarily? Flat cables can fit under carpet:

Re: Wifi deadspot

Running by Ethernet would be more stable

Re: Wifi deadspot

Re: Wifi deadspot

Re: Wifi deadspot

No as the hub is downstairs and my sons laptops are in their bedrooms and have wood floors so can't run flat ethernet cables and that's why im asking for the powerline adapters.

Re: Wifi deadspot

Virgin offer the "pods" now, but they cost £5 per month unless you're on the Gig1 or Ultimate Oomph bundles.

For £5 per month rental. they're not worth the cost compared to getting your own (better) equipment.
