Hello, my house has 4 floors and the wifi is really struggling in parts, can anyone recommend a wi fi extender please that works? The walls are extremely thick and I have bought one from Argos but it's not doing the job so looking for recommendations of ones that work? Extra points if it's from Amazon so I can lazily order it 😊 Thanks in Advance

We are still tied into a contract with talk talk(shocking customer service btw) so just trying to make the best of what we have for now - sorry should have mentioned that

You’ll need more than one extender. One on at least every floor.

We got some from net gear.

We have some from Netgear. They take the signal through our 3ft wide walls, and work well enough to stream TV across the house from the main router, so must be fairly good.

You should have one on every floor. A Ethernet over power extender will work. No need to get BT or talk talk involved. We have something like this www.amazon.co.uk/Powerline-Adapter-Homeplug-Wireless-Extender/dp/B00C580FZA?tag=mumsnetforum-21

You can read about how they work on www.devolo.com

We've got little plug in Belkin ones we got from Amazon - they've worked well... also work on my mum's house where you only used to get Wifi in the kitchen and dining room. Negative side effect - my mum can now get internet shopping from the living room and her credit card bill's suffering. (Mum's house is like 18th Century so has huge thick stone walls to give you an idea)
