Despite a new Virgin Superhub installation, my wifi coverage is poor in parts of the house, so researched wifi range extenders. This seems a good deal and cheaper than the dabs.com deal posted earlier

TP Link TL-WR702N 150Mbps Wireless N Nano Router
At 16.98 delivered from MyMemory via Amazon also seems a good deal, link here: amazon.co.uk/Lin…1-3
Has anyone got any suggestions/advice as to which to buy please?

Isn't it £19.19?

Are you sure a range extender is what you're looking for? They half your bandwidth. What are you looking to use the wifi for in the extended area?

Dear kebab thief
Not very computer savvy. I need to connect my laptop and iPad to the Internet for surfing, emails, video chat via Skype and watching stuff on youtube etc. will any of these suffice? Thanks for your advice.

They probably will do the trick then. HD streaming and online gaming and you'd probably start noticing performance issues.

The way that an extender works (in non tech terms) is that it uses half of the wifi bandwidth for sending and half for receiving (please don't knock me for simplifying it please, peeps), so for streaming high def and gaming where you want the maximum you can get, I'd go for another solution. For just web browsing, these should do fine.

Hope this helps.

Range extenders may half bandwidth but there is enough still in the stream to support an internet connection, it is internal traffic that suffers.

Ideal solution is always HomePlugs, and if its wireless then a homeplug kit with wireless in it will do the job nicely.
