Can anyone recommend best way to ensure gaining solid wifi signal throughout 4 bedroom house such that do not get dropping out of signal.
am getting family grief from this happening despite various extenders setup throughout house.
should I get new router or modem? If so recommended makes and models irrespective of cost, reliability and strength of signal most important factor

I have separate mains in different areas of the house would this prevent me using in Rooms where say upstairs electric is on one and downstairs another or does it only have to be from mains supply hence does not matter what circuit?

Dosnt matter what circuit mate Aslong as plugged into a socket dosnt have a bearing on your ring main ect or anything just needs to be in a socket and connected to router downstairs via Ethernet cable and into 1powerline and plug the other one upstairs in a bedroom say connected to Xbox as the powerlines sync up so sends the signal to each other I've got WiFi boosters from sly and there decent and the weakest point in our house is my bedroom got a booster in there signal better plus my sly q box acts as a WiFi hot-spot

Morning all,, just adding on to this thread if that’s ok, I am in same position, 4 bed detached modern build house, the signal in bedrooms is woefully, I understand ( believe it or not) powerline afaptors/tp links etc, but even the best make little or no difference,, my router is a bt hub 1 situated in the downstairs lounge,, I have read and read about how to position router, turn it off regularlarly followed all the basic info, to no avail,, I have the formuler z 7+ box, it’s great but not so in bedroom,, any tips/ideas welcome,, cheers.

I ended up getting a better router from talktalk.it is their newest Model and now all is working a lot better. Simpler than getting extenders which I have had problems dropping out

Yes, I was thinking about getting another router, just wondering if other folk have been in the same boat and what they did to rectify?
