Re: Wifi connection

@Taylor2 

Have a look at my post in this thread for separating the Wi-fi signals. It might be of help.

You need something like this:-


https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing-accessories/networking/powerline/tp-link-wpa4220-wifi-powerl...

 

It’s a PowerLine Adaptor that you plug the sender into your router, and it sends the Ethernet signal over the mains to the receiver in the summer house, which offers 3 Ethernet ports and WiFi there.

 

Currys have a faster one for more money, and there may be similar devices, from TPLink and Netgear, available from other vendors.

 

I had a £60 pair from Curry’s to pipe Ethernet over the mains to my garden room, and it was good enough for my professional WFH needs.

 

But if you have a tablet or a phone you want to use in there, make sure you get one with WiFi, as not all PLAs have that, and you will need it for any devices without an Ethernet port, or just for convenience, even with those that do.
