Like someone else said, Do NOT get a booster or repeater, they are crap! If you have a weak signal and try to boost that or repeat that, you will get crap out. Crap In, Crap Out! Even if you have a new WiFirouter, it doesn't mean that it's going to be the best solution. Each house construction and layout is different and if your placement is say in one corner of the house, that is not a good central location for an RF Signal to transmit out from and receive from. What I would do is run a CAT5 cable from router into wall and up to the attic, then ceiling mount an Access Point like the Ubiquiti UAC-AP-Lite or UAC-AP-LR and pop the network cable out there. It will look like a Hi-Tech smoke detector and it's POE so you don't need power where the Access Point will be located.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?
