Can vouch for the quality of these - put one in my kitchen paired to the WiFi router in the lounge, now I can get the WiFi all the way to the bottom of the garden.
can't go wrong with belkin netgear, stay away from tp-link
14.99 in argos too.
Does anybody know if these will extent a hotspot wifi signal? Each time you just need to go through a simple login screen of pressing 'get online'. It's an EE business wifi I think.
Do these work with any sort of wifi router / setup? I only ask because I've got Sky Q and they sell their own boosters. I have an old Sky one that no longer works with the new system.
Perfect just what I needed. Thanks OP

​I think so. You give it the name and password of the WiFi you want to extend, and it mimics that with the same name and password - effectively you have two hotspots that share a name so you cam connect to either, seamlessly. Should be router agnostic.

​Thank you. Got one reserved for tomorrow. Will try boost the signal in the garden and back of house up stairs.
Got one of these at Argos this week. Honestly amazed at how well it worked.
Can these be switched off and turned back on and remember the password? Like off for 24hrs?
Can these reduce the speed if multiple are used around the house?
excellent!! cheers!!!
if i have a connection somewhere but not very good will this enhance it? better download?

If your connection is bad I would of thought this will be no good at all. it works by eliminating dead spots around the house.
It's not bad I've got 200 mgb download hard wired but in my bedroom it's quite slow
Can I buy two and use them in different rooms, will that still work?
I just bought the netgear one which is £2 more but has external antennas which I hoping will give me better coverage than the belkin.

Just purchased. Looking for homeplugs in the long term for wired connection but this will do in the meantime, thnaks OP
Does this repeat the same network, or create a new one?

What happens when your stood in-between both networks? I have a poor WiFi signal in the rear garden. I assume this connects to the router (assuming a good signal) and creates another signal.

First part - yes, it connects to your existing wifi and then re-broadcasts that using its own antennae.

When you're in-between networks... well, this is ultimately down to your device/operating system to manage but in theory the stronger signal should be the one that is connected to, however this will obviously vary depending on the tolerance of your device.

A quick edit/addition - you will never be in-between "networks" so to speak as you'll always be connected to the one SSID, so replace 'networks' with 'devices broadcasting the SSID' in the above.

Don't confuse this with the Homeplug Wifi type extender.
This appears to be a WiFi relay type extender. I think it adds more WiFi pollution - last time I tried one, it slowed my main WiFi by 15% and caused some devices to drop out, plus confused a WiFi printer until I got it's settings right.

Better is one that receives on 5GHz and transmits on 2.4GHz, best is one that receives via mains signal and rebroadcasts on a different frequency from your main WiFi.
But I'd be happy to be corrected.
it doesn't pick up a 5g only 2g, but I use it to extend wifi to the garden and it works fine... got mine at Argos for £14.99
Cheers OP picked one up in argos this morning and it works a treat, full signal throughout the house with no more deadspots and 75% signal down the other end of the garden. Well pleased with it.

Good idea, love thinking outside of the "box", thinking "sideways" too...

​Yes... It remembers everything unless you factory restore it.... You can reset it and it will still remember.
