VR headset move Broadband

We currently have we have our broadband box upstairs and son wants it moved downstairs to feed a Gamer PC( not bought yet?) Does this need to be done or will WiFi run the PC? Thanks

Re: VR headset move Broadband

wifi should work - how well will only be known when you try but however good it is it will not be as good as wired

you have a few options though

get VM to move the box - that will cost you £99 as its a non fault callout

use homeplugs - one plugs into the mains near the hub and another near the [new] pc both then connect via a lan cable back to the hub and pc - there are many - some better than others - worth buying from somewhere like amazon so you can return them if they dont work as the mains can be fragmented and cause problems

run a lan cable from the hub to the [new] pc - can be internal or out through a wall to the outside and then back in again - good quality cat5e or cat6 cable will be fine
