    Why do they want a WiFi extend? What's in the way? What's the scenario?

    The rooms at the back of the house has a weak signal. Just an easy to use one, they are not that IT literate with the sophisticated firmwares.

    I've had good results with a TP-Link extender on an ethernet cable. More reliable than trying to receive and retransmit by wireless and it's easy to run a cable under the floor or through the ceiling space. The extender is in a cupboard at the other end of the house.
    Either go where you're looking or look where you're going!

    Cheers guys. I don't think their house is cabled up ... with Cat5/6 being non IT people I don't think they would look at it either. Yeah I gather they want WiFi for their laptops/PC and phones.

    Best alternative is ethernet cable but second best is the powerline adapter.

    Ok guys I know that the TP Link network switches are decent products, what do you suggest as a WiFi extender to plug into a RJ45 outlet and to extend wireless to the back of the house?

    They have at least 4 RJ45s in the house wired up already.

    Netgear WN****RPT series.
    I have used a WN2000RPT for over two years teamed with a Netcomm Nb604n, it gives an extra 10m range just fine.
    However.... if you have a Vodafone Router don't bother trying an extender, nothing but grief!

    That one is wireless right meaning it grabs it wirelessly and broadcast it wirelessly.

    Can one buy anothe router and connect it up like that, or is that a WAP or ...
