Powerlines plug into your existing electrical circuit to extend your internet into areas where you have poor connectivity. They offer a stable wired connection without trailing cables and are particularly useful if, say, your router is downstairs and other devices needing fast internet speeds are scattered around the house.
Poor internet connection can have many causes, perhaps interference from other devices or even very thick walls. A WiFi booster will improve coverage throughout the home for wireless devices like laptops, printers, phones, game consoles and TVs. The TP-Link WiFi Extender connects to your router wirelessly, strengthening and expanding its signal to areas it can’t reach on its own. It also reduces signal interference. If you have a BT router, the BT Whole Home WiFi Triple Pack could be the solution. Perfect for several users, you can connect up to six discs around your home to create a complete network. You can also see who’s online, pause the internet and manage a guest network. All BT products work with all broadband providers. If you have many devices connected via ethernet, an ethernet switch can expand your network capacity
But if your poor speeds are down to hardware such as an ancient computer, pop in a USB wireless adaptor. They’re designed to make even older Windows laptops and desktops connect at much faster speeds.
