I have the R7000 router so I hope this works well with it.

Can never have enough Wifi!!!

I know it's hot but what will AC do for me? joking aside...

yeah AC is way better but more money! £34.99 for the 750AC and £39.99 for the 1200AC.

Not sure if it I need it to be honest... but hey...I suppose if you want or need it super fast. I just want better wifi coverage...

Is my understanding still correct in saying that home plugs and such half bandwidth?

Not sure but this is not a homeplug product just so you are aware. You just plug it in somewhere that gets good wifi reception but that is closer to your dead spot, and it repeats/extends the wifi from there.

There are other modes but it is not a powerline product.

Thanks OP. To be honest it is regularly this price. We have one and it immediately solved our poor wifi upstairs so happy with it. Recommended.

My android box (Running Terannium.TV, best app out there for me) was struggling with WIFI, its a know problem. Other devices struggled for a signal but not like this. I recievd this booster yesterday which worked fine to a point and well worth the money. I connected the Android box to this booster using an ethernet cable (Port is just underneath) and it ran full speed (tested via "SpeedTest" App). Excellent device and easy to setup.

Could someone advise if this is the product for me.
Basically my Fibre wifi signal has dropped dramatically over the last 2 weeks. I'm getting 40meg into my router but wireless signal is chronic, xbone showing 7meg download speed so I'm regularly kicked out of games and Netflix etc. Sky no use at all saying it's a problem in my home but no way to identify what or why. Minimal devices attached at any time and no changes in circumstances in my house so a bit of a head scratcher.
It seems there something blocking my wifi signal so would this product help?
Thanks

In your situation I would try the powerline adapters - they turn your home's power cables into network cables (whilst having no impact on their ability to carry electricity as normal).

You can get them in various configurations, but these would be a good set to get at reasonable cost - they are "pass through" meaning they don't use up a power socket and have two ports, meaning you can connect two devices (Xbox and Smart TV?) to one of the adapters.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/TP-LINK-TL-PA4020PKIT-Two-Port-Powerline-Adapter/dp/B00LV41PO4/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1470729119&sr=8-3&keywords=powerline+adapter+pass+through

They're very easy to set up, plug one into a power socket near your router and connect to your router via ethernet cable (supplied). Then plug the other into a power socket near your Xbox and connect your Xbox and other device to it via ethernet (may need an additional ethernet cable). Then hit the sync button on the one by your router and then the one by your devices. They should then auto-sync and have a connection within a minute.

Your speeds should be pretty good, on a 40mb connection I would expect 30mb or more at the device - significantly better than WiFi. :)

If nothing in your house has changed then the most likely culprit is going to be a neighbour getting a new router on the same WiFi channel as yours. If you can log onto your router then I would experiment with changing to a new channel each day and see if any of them work better for you. You can also get programs to run on your mobile to see which channels are in use nearby, although I haven't found this as effective as the trial and error approach.

The next thing to look for would be new or moved devices that use the same spectrum as your WiFi. If you or your neighbours have a new baby monitor, IP camera or cordless phone then it might be interfering with your setup.

Finally, have you moved yourself? One of the most effective ways of blocking WiFi signal is to place a large sack of impure water (AKA torso) in the way.

A WiFi repeater might well circumvent your issue but if it has worked well in the past then I would try the free options first.

I'm struggling understanding your understanding.

What's the struggle, these do slow your transmission speed down as they effectively double the network traffic in the vacinity, maybe not half but they have been known to increase latency and reduce speeds in exchange for more range.

If anyone's offering any technical guidance then I'm all ears!! Bought a wifi extender/adaptor 12 months ago (albeit a relatively cheap one off eBay) to boost signal from house to office in converted garage at back of house. Fine up until recently when Virgin maintenance. Since then won't even pick up the extender & only a feint signal to the regular house wifi signal. Any ideas. Thanks in advance

Been playing about with the channels the last few days. Things aren't too congested and I'm currently the only one on my chosen channel. I'll have a word with my neighbours to see how they are getting on. Frustrating as we've had a year without a hitch, seemed to come out of nowhere.

It basically splits your available bandwidth between the booster and your original router.

So if you have a 38MB connection, the router keeps 19MB, and the other 19MB gets pushed to the "booster".

Powerline adapters work differently. They basically just work like a standard ethernet connection would if you plugged that into your router.

I'm with the Vermin Media.. Wifi signal downstairs where the router is situated is brilliant, however, once you go upstairs to the back rooms, it keeps cutting out and is pretty much non existent!

Will this help me? or should I consider leaving the Vermin Media? I also hate the fact that on peak times (Sundays, evenings etc,) the wifi is just **** wherever I am.

Yes, they will just give a wired connection from your router to whichever devices you plug into the second powerline adapter. WiFi would be unaffected.

If you want to increase your WiFi as well as have a wired connection, you can get powerline adapters with built in WiFi access points, effectively giving you a second WiFi network at the location of the second powerline adapter. They're more expensive, but work well.

In the kit below you use the larger black box where your Xbox is and you can plug up to 3 devices into it for a very fast wired connection and it also has a WiFi transmitter for an additional WiFi hotspot/access point (essentially a second router).

Don't waste money on wireless n. Spend a bit more and go for ac

Not necessarily, ac signals don't carry as far (set up my friend's Wifi and all his walls are concrete and outside his house we can detect the n signal, weak but good enough for basic streaming, but not the ac --> tried it on 2 phones and a laptop and same on all devices / only tried one ac router though so it's hardly scientific ;-)

Thanks Gollywood, but from what I have read, it actually makes a new SSID with a _ext suffix at the end. In that case, I would need to manually change the connection I was on depending where I was in the house. Do you think it will keep the same SSID as my router?

Powerline adapters work differently. They basically just work like a standard ethernet connection would if you plugged that into your router.

Sorry but this isn't right at all.

The booster is passive. I.e. the router has no idea what the boosters function is except that it's another device on the network wanting an IP address.
The booster simply takes whatever signal it gets and amplifies it. Also remember that the signal it's getting is the internal wifi signal so that's running at whatever speed/standard your router wifi is running at. This has little to do with your incoming broadband speed (assuming it's a reasonably new router that's capable of wireless speeds in excess of the incoming broadband connection).

The booster will have an impact on speeds as it's acting as another hop in the connection between any device using it and the router. How much of an impact is very subjective and is impossible to determine remotely given the variables of original wifi strength, original bandwidth, interference, distance from router, distance from device, overall network usage, congestion and more.

????? AC, air conditioning???

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_802.11ac

Preceded by 802.11b,g and n. To be superceded by 802.11ax possibly.

Wireless networking was invented in 1970 by the University of Hawaii. Due to the physics of Wifi it's inferior to Ethernet, although Wireless will eventually supercede Ethernet in most people's experience in the future. It will take some time we're still on TCP/IP and the headache to replace that or piggy back another system is immense. It will need doing someday.

Yeah.

I've confused it.

A Wireless N repeater would cut your speed more then adding one more device because it operates on half duplex.

Basically the repeater is only able to send out Signal at Half the speed it receives.

So if it asks for say 19MB, it's going to need to draw 38MB away from the router to provide that.

Don't be mislead by power line adapters. Tests have proved they can actually be slower than WiFi. I will see if I can find the link. Also to the guy who has carp WiFi with sky, are you using the free one they gave you. If so there could be the answer to your problem. I have what us quite old now better dgnd3300 with the router at the back of my TV in the living room and still get a decent signal at the very far corner of the house and it not a small house. Also you by guys only getting 40gb on fibre. I got 100gb coming at the end of the month and we get 250gb at work. BT are doing it wrong as they only take fibre to the cabinet. Here in Hull they bring the cable to you house.
