one spot in our house has a really shit signal, im think i should by a booster or repreater for thewifi there. should i buy the rezpeter one or the booster one. am not even sure if the is a differance. i turn the advises on digitalworldz.uk
Depends on whether you want to go fully wireless or cabled / wifi
A wifi repeater operates by connecting to your wireless network and rebroadcasting it into a larger area of connectivity. On the other hand, a wifi extender links itself to your wireless network with the help of a wireless link and extends the network to more area in your house.
Wifi extenders are the best wifi boosters for consistent, reliable high speed wifi to every floor and corner of your home. Unlike repeaters or range extenders that rebroadcast existing wifi signals communicate directly with your gateway or wifi router using a wire.
WiFi extenders use a “wire” or cable as the means of communicating back to the router or source.
the room with the shit wifi signal is the room right next door to the room with the router. i couldnt get much further from the routerr without going into the attic or leaving the house and everything is dead on up here. it seems a bit weird to me that. instead of installing wiring id prefere to just tell them to go to another room with a better signal lol but would any of those devices mentioned by oggiman in the answer above be any help here?
Stay clear of boosters their shit, I would get something like this TP-LINK WPA4220 WiFi Powerline Adapter Kit - AV600, Twin Pack , and if you've already got a homeplug just buy single (the one with wifi obviously)
Set it up next to router then put it anywhere in the house, and it will give you a new wirelesss network
A cost-free thing to try: If you can access the menu in your wifi router (often on a sticker underneath 192.168.n.n) you could try changing the wifi frequency (channel). Your 'deadspot' might be due to interference from a neighbour's network operating on the same frequency as your own.
i will try the change the channel thing first. its a normal talk talk router, think its the newest one its onlly a few months old. if changing the channel don't work should i get a booster or repeater are they the same?
