these any good ?

same price with currys with free delivery

Hot will try. Anyone know if these extenders have any detrimental effect on the mani router speed as in does it become slower

Pretty sure they can't affect the speed of the main router, providing they don't interfere with each other, though they should be designed not to. The speed via the extender is usually significantly slower than the speed direct to the router though as due to their nature you are going to be placing them in a location where the signal is only middling/ok so it won't have the full throughput to begin with. Generally with extenders you trade raw speed for stability of connection, which isn't a bad deal unless you need the absolute fastest speeds in which case direct ethernet followed by powerline is the way to go....

These are reduced to £12.99 so frequently it's effectively the normal price!

Never had any issues with these and a good price. I use them with a 50mb virgin connection. Probably get about half the speed on these.

​Thanks for that.

Are these any better than the net gear plug in ones. I've not had much success, as it messes up the router which has to be re set every couple of days. If anyone has experience of the Berlin one being better then please let me know.

Been same price for a few weeks now

​This is quite wrong. WiFi repeaters like this basically halve the maximum speed because they rebroadcast everything that moves. If they're the only option then they're great.

Dont see how that makes me wrong, i said the speed from the extender is slower than the router itself, but devices that are closer to the original router than the extender should still connect to the router and obtain the same speed as normal. Obviously anything connected via ethernet should connect at the normal speed too...

I'm sorry I think I must have read it wrong. Yeah you are correct, those still connecting to the base router wouldn't be affected (other than there potentially being more devices sharing the connection). As you said it would be much better to connect another wireless access point with ethernet or powerline than repeat wirelessly.
