Wifi Poor In Your House? You better read this

Frustrated with the poor WiFi around your house? Or would like it to extend into the garden or turn a spare room into an office and then find out you can’t access the internet in there?

I think I have the answer for you, Powerline adapters. There are many different types so you need to make sure before you buy which Powerline adapter would be right for you. The two main types are ethernet only and WiFi, the WiFi adapters generally have ethernet and WiFi.

Powerline adapters are very simple to install and will have you connecting all your devices in no time. You simply plug one Powerline adapter into a power socket close to your router and attach it to your router via an ethernet cable(most power line adapters come with at least one ethernet cable but please check this) then you plug the other Powerline adapter into a power socket close to where you want your new WiFi signal to be boosted from. You can also plug an ethernet cable in here too if you would like to hard wire a PC, Laptop or another device.

You can also get Powerline adapters that have a passthrough power socket this way you would not lose the power socket you put the adapter in. So simple, quick and easy to set up you will have internet all around your home and garden.

The cheapest Powerline adapters run at 200Mbps which is good enough for most really but if you are looking for extra speed there are 500Mbps and 1,200Mbps options. Please note this will not make your existing internet speed faster these are speeds data could be transferred between the two Powerline adapters.

So now you have decided which Powerline adapter you are wanting i.e. WiFi or just Ethernet I will link the best buys below for you:
