Big thanks but looking for something on the cheap ,first link is the same price as my router
I got these for the conservatory they are not the fastest but it increased the speeds from about 1mbps to 30mbps though this is quite a bit less than the 200mbps I get at the router.

I never had much luck with powerline wifi adapters. I had some TP-Link and was only getting about 10mbps over wifi but 50mbps over Ethernet, decided to send them back to Amazon and got the Netgear instead.
Boosters/extenders/repeaters do not work.

Use WiFi Powerline adaptors

30mbps should more than do it for streaming I just thought they'd be faster
