I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice about purchasing one of these WiFi booster kits: http://www.virginmediaaccessories.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=Netgear
I currently live in a basement flat with the wireless hub located in an alcove (not ideal, but this is where our telephone socket is). There's one room on the first floor which has very poor signal. I've been a Virgin Media customer for years, and never had much of an issue in that room until about a year ago, but my service provider maintain they can't do anything about it. As our flat is really small, it will be difficult to pull the router out of the alcove and there will probably be an unsightly tangle of wires, so thought it would be less hassle to purchase a WiFi booster kit from Virgin. However, after being passed around their customer services/technical support team, no one can actually offer me any advice on which one I should get!
The internet usage in our household isn't very high. We have one desktop PC (connected to the superhub with an ethernet cable), and then a laptop (connected by WiFi, currently in the bedroom which is a blindspot) and a couple of smart phones.
Is anyone able to provide some advice on which one I should purchase? I'm assuming the more expensive ones offer a better signal, but not sure if this will be necessary in my house given that we are likely to only have one laptop and a couple of phones connected to our WiFi at any given time.
